    A common trend is that those who bricked are those who have not gone online with their Wiis

    Right and wrong, it seems there are actually two revisions of the 2.1E firmware. The older one gets bricked, the newer one (released with Everybody Votes, IIRC) does not.

    the thing is if you have 2.2 you know it will be ok. where as if you only have 2.1 your always going to be taking a risk. its like finding a gun and putting it to your head and pulling the trigger. if your lucky enough for it not to be loaded you will be ok.

    Is your wii a pal one? If it is there's no reason to fear a pal update, games don't update do previous firmware versions, at least i don't think so, going to check that when i get home

    So do you need to be online when you have 2.2 when you first put in paper mario?

    Doesn't really matter anyway, strikers didn't update it to 2.2 only 2.1

    Just boot your wii without a game, connect to Wiiconect24 and update system. Keep doing it untill it says "no further updates/console has latest updates" mine updated to v2.2e (Pal Wii w/wiikey installed) and its fine.

    I play SPM fine, no bricks. Not tried Mario Strikers yet, d/l'ed it last night but I got another 5 hours of work left before I can go home and burn it!!! [​IMG]

    If you dont have internet access, could you not take your wii to a friends house with wi-fi and connect & update to 2.2 there? Thats what I'd do rather than risk bricking my beloved little white box of fun [​IMG]

    Out of curiosity, why is it that updates via game discs are bricking Wii's? Is it due to the discrepancies in the data stream due to the mods?

    But updates via WiiConnect24 always work fine?

    No. Much less exciting. The update that comes with the game disk makes the system require region specific files but only contains the files for US consoles.

    Only if you update using a different region's update files which come with a different region's game.
