    So I just got the game, inserted it into my console and it askes me for a wii update. This update will wipe out my homebrew channel. Now I use homebrew so that my console can play both PAL and NTSC games so I need the homebrew channel. Just wondering if there is a way to bypass this update? And sorry if this has been asked before but I can't find it anywhere on the boards.

    Priiloader can block disc updates

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Is this the best solution? Any other alternatives?

    just rename priiloader to boot.elf
    and put it in sd:\apps\priiloader\boot.elf
    and put the hacks.ini in the root of the sd
    http://gbatemp.net/t237575-4-1x-4-2x-4-3x-hacks-ini
    then load priiloader from homebrew channel
    after you install restart hold reset while booting and enable the hacks you want

    Just found out I can just boot the game using homebrew channel without having to update the wii so no need to do anything [​IMG]

    If you use a original disc, uses Priiloader.

    If you use a backup disc, pass WiiBrickBlocker and Re-Burn disc.

    Actually - I've have just softmodded my Wii (I had 4.2E firmware) so that I could play DVD's on it (not to concerned about pirate/backup game playing) & perhaps try a few Homebrew games etc

    I've got original SMG2 & when I put the disk in - it showed 'Update required' & like a fool I selected it... thinking IF it updated & removed the Homebrew etc - it's no great loss, after all I was only 'trying it out'

    The thing is that despite it going through the motions of an update, connecting to the Nintendo USB WiFi (I don't have 'proper' WiFi) - the Homebrew channel remained afterward AND I could still play DVD's

    The only problem I found/had was when I tried to delete files from SD card through Homebrew Channel (in particular IIRC - the ios202 installer) the system locked up. So what the SMG2 update actually did I don't know

    Just wonder how a game like SMG2 with 4.2 can delete HBC ??
    Suppose so far only 4.3 will cause this.
