    Well, I'm glad you knew to not update it and cause a region brick.

    Anyway, you will probably want to install preloader and install the hacks for it to ignore games wanting to update. It works fine on my 3.2 wii that I play recent games on. (Including the conduit)

    What s3phir0th115 said is best. Everyone should have preloader for general Anti-Brick (bootmii is better, but that needs a vulnerable boot2 for brick protection. The IOS version won't do.).

    But to answer your question, if you want to use brickblocker, it should still work. It just depends if you want to further hack your wii or waste another DVD.

    In addition to preloader I would use region fri (if needed) and brickblock the wii iso images before loading them on my usb drive. The more protection the better.
