hi, have avoided the entire homebrew channel business, and have continued to run the very basic wiikey with even the original (prior to SMG) firmware. pal system 3.1 firmware. have attempted to run tiger woods 10, after correcting the 001 and 002 errors with GENERICWIIPATCHER. and then removed any update with BRICKBLOCKER i have understood the entire trucha signing matter disc is recognised, but on running goes to a black screen which hangs the wii. i have genuinely looked through other postings, and understand that the solution might be to start loading the homebrew channel etc, but was wondering whether disc modification only could still get this and similar games running. i guess it will not run due to missing firmware updates. many thanks to anyone who can confirm/ deny that what i am trying to do is no longer possible.
