    if you remove the update from the iso, you will have no chance of bricking, if you update with a wrong region, you will get semi-bricked, but that is recoverable

    There is a risk of getting a semi brick as far as i know. And you can get the news/weather channel twice in the other region (but they dont work)
    And there isnt any game with 4.0 inside yet!

    If you launch backups with BL 0.3 you SHOULD aviod all updates, for example i played Rune Factory: Frontier NTSC on my PAL console without any problem.

    I have found that with the twilight and homebrew on my system that I have to force the region that I am in, for instance I am in the US. If I use a PAL, I have to click on force the NTSC for it to work. Is that the norm for everyone else or do I have something not installed?

    thanks

    Only play games from your region (NTSC-U for United States) or that have the update removed. You can also use RegionFrii to change the region of certain games, although this can sometimes cause in-game issues.
