    I forgot to brickblock and regionfree CoD5, so I quickly updated my system to 3.4E in case it asked for a NTSC system update. It did. Now it says I must perform a wii system update to play the game, now im pretty sure I can still do it because I've got the latest PAL firmware installed now, but I wanted to quickly make sure. better to be safe than sorry!

    and I could re-burn it with brickblocker but it took and hour and a half to burn as it was so I'm not really looking forward to waiting another hour and a half to play the game.


    thanks!

    Don't install that update.
    Run the game through Gecko OS if you want to skip the update

    really? I thought it was going to be okay :wtf: glad I asked.

    whats a Gecko OS and where do I find one to kill? [​IMG]

    hey if I re-burnded it with the wiibrickblocker patch it will kill the update right?

    so from a second opinion you reckon I can't do the update either?? What will happen if I do?

    alright I've got it, I extraced the boot.elf file and put it on the SD card... do I need to put some kind of elf installer on the home brew channel? [​IMG] I think i've only got a .wad installer [​IMG]

    it should be a boot.dol as Nuke updated it!
    Also put the folder in apps on SD Card and run it though HBC, that's it, if you want a channel of it search custom channels on the search!

    Time fore bed, up early to do some Car Mechanics fucking alternator job!! arrrrrrrrrrgh

    alright thanks for all the help.

    I put the gecko thing in the apps folder, but still all I can see in the homebrew channel is 'wad installer' and wad uninstaller... I'll keep playing around with it.

    seeya later.


    EDIT: Is it because I did a system update??
