    I recently put Mario Strikers PAL into my US Wii with WiiKey and it did an update on it. There was no brick but I just heard about this brick problems and was scared about my Wii.

    Why did my Wii not brick? I bought my Wii recently and it came with 2.2U. Is that why? And is my Wii totally safe or did the update still do something to it, as in do I still have to worry? Finally, what preventive measures can I do from now on to protect my Wii from bricking?

    Thanks guys!

    Well, if you put the PAL version of Strikers in your Wii, it added some files to your NAND that have to do with the PAL version of Nintendo's Wii firmware.

    If you put in the NTSC-U version of strikers, it probably added some extra stuff that wasn't already on your wii.

    To prevent updating your wii via game disks, use Wii Brick Blocker. It's easy, fast, and prevents your Wii from kicking the bucket.

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but is it okay to run the update on an NTSC-U Wii if you already updated it with the PAL Strikers disc?

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    Are you asking if it's ok to run the NTSC-U version of Mario Strikers on an NTSC-U Wii that's been updated using the PAL version of Mario Strikers?

    If so, yes, you'll be fine.

    It is the PAL version of Strikers, simply because the NTSC version of Strikers has not been released yet.

    So as you were saying, the PAL strikers added some files to the NAND of my US Wii, is there cause for concern. Even though it didnt brick my Wii, will it cause me future trouble?

    Probably not, in fact it could help you out on future releases from the PAL region.

    Thanks for your input Tomobobo, appreciate it. But I dont think Ill be trying PAL games for now on, just to be on the safe side haha, or maybe Ill use Wii Brick Blocker.

    Any other comments people?

    I have a PAL machine and have run updates from Super Paper Mario and Pokemon Revolution. I have had no problems at all.

    Even if it does write stuff to the NAND i see no evidence that its gonna mess your system up for good. I have not used brickbuster with any of my games at all, and no probs.

    As long as you have the latest update for your region, you should be ok.

    I did a PAL update when it was already at 2.2U. I then got the NTSC version and shoved it in, worked fine.

    When you did your PAL update could it work then? Or did you haev to use the NTSC version to rectify your brick?
