    hello, what if I run the upgrades that come with the discs ?
    I have a Pal wii with 3.3E and D2pro if is it dangerous if I run the upgrade that comes with PAL games, will I lose homebrew etc ? does it change the 3.3 into 4.x or just install the IOSes ?

    thanks and sorry for the newbie question.

    with a question like that, you should be.

    You have obviously done ZERO research on this problem. NEVER update.

    There's no need to perform a full-blown update. Run the game via Gecko first to install any missing IOSes, then disable disc updates.

    That's true....if running a backup, he could always brick-block it, or install preloader and enable the block disc update hack

    ok Dudes, I'm trying to run a game via Gecko 1.9.2 (i.e. wii fit plus) but when it tries to extract the IOS wad it fails and gives me error "Return Value 4". What should I do ?

    For anybody that is having the same problem I solved it installing the right IOS and brickblock the game... then run it through the channel....
    Thanks anyway for your comments, it's always good to refresh minds to do NOT UPDATE ;-)
