    I've done some searching on this and I've ran across things like wiiscrub or wiibrickblocker but, and correct me if I'm wrong, that appears to be ways to remove updates and what not from game images you have. However I'm curious about updates that store bought games need to run. For instance. I just opened my Wii console today. I followed the instructions and hacked the wii without issue. I burned and played COD : WAW without issue. Then I opened Guitar Hero World Tour that I got for xmas and inserted the CD. I had to install an update from the CD in order to play it. Do these things break the wiiloader?

    No, if it's a channel already, no. Just install Starfall! [​IMG]

    First things first, don't bother doign disc updates, as it would stop homebrew channel from working, that is if you are using homebrew, if you are using a modchip thats a different story, what i suggest is instead of running the game throught the disc channel, run it through the backup loader, or downgrade your wii's firmware to 3.2 and install starfall, as it will disable any disc update in the future.

    Its Homebrew.

    So if I run *ALL* games, store bough or not via WiiGator3 then I'll be fine?

    Or get Starfall! Simpler solution! And you can run games through the Disc Channel. It's really useful, just enable what you want.

    About Starfall: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Starfall

    But you could do it through Gamma... [​IMG]

    So what happens if you do it through gamma, does it just ignore the update as if it never needed one?

    I currently am using 3.1U. Should I just keep it at that and run Starfall or should I do more?

    You have to have 3.2 or starfall will not work, I think, but thats what i've heard, so upgrade to 3.2 then install starfall, Its really great.

    EDIT: I have it on my wii and my firmware is at 3.2

    So Starfall is another channel to launch your games instead of using WiiGator then correct?

    no its something that installs on your wii, it allows you to disable updates, get rid of the sound in the wii menu, helps you umbrick your wii if its partially bricked and many other things.

    you don't need any region changer, just get 3.2 and install starfall, unless you have a different region

    Downgrader or AnyRegionChanger

    Just don't mess with too much in ARC.

    Or some games have update 3.2
    Mario Kart Wii for example
