    Just today I successfully installed USB Loader GX onto my Wii, and installed my copy of Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes onto the USB. However, after that the actual disc now tells me that I have to perform a Wii System Update to play it.

    Did I miss a step that prevents this, or should I just risk the system update?

    I currently have 4.3u.

    If you use USBLoader, why don't you run the game from USB ?

    it says there's an update because your IOS version (in slot249 I guess) is lower than the "fake IOS" nintendo created to replace the one used by USBLoaders.
    there are different method to not see the update message :
    1. don't run games from disc channel (you can play from Disc using loaders if you want)
    2. install cIOS with a higher version number (instead of 21008 or 21010, select 65535 when installing cIOS)
    3. Install priiloader and select the Update blocker (from Disc, from everything)


    in USBLoaderGX, you can either dump your disc to ISO to USB (insert the disc in the loader and select install game, then run the game from USB), or select mount to launch it.
    if it's already inside the Wii, you can run the game by selecting the Disc icon at the right of the top menu.

    I only have the one Wii game so I don't know if this would be an issue with all Wii games, and I didn't intend to use USBLoader for every game that I would eventually get.

    Where do I find cIOS, and how do I use it. I'm not very savvy with what to know, I got this far with multiple forums and video guides on YouTube.

    Edit: I should also mention that the disc channel didn't tell me to update until I "installed" the game into the USB.

    Edit #2: After looking it up I now understand that I need a "Custom IOS". Now I have a IOS236 Installer/Uninstall and a Wad Manager 1.4 (in Spanish) that came with the tutorials to install USB Loader GX and Accio Hacks (i think). Can I use one of those to create a cIOS and if I can, what should it be if all I'm using, at this point, are: Gecko, Accio Hacks, VBA GX, USB Loader GX, and I still want to use Disc Channel.
