I've seen a mention of something along the lines of a Metroid Prime 3: Corruption trick in multiple topics. What exactly does it do? Does it require a certain version of the game?

Thanks.

Metroid Prime 3 contains an update. If the game is from your own region, you can safely install it.
The NTSC version was released first and PAL later. So unpatient PAL users also wanted to play the game. But as you may know, running an update from a region that is not your own may brick your Wii. So they discovered a little trick. They let the update run, but cancelled it (by shutting down the Wii) when the update was at about 15% or so. That was enough to make the game run, but it wouldn't brick the Wii. But I believe it did result in duplicate news&weather channels.

no no wrong the problem with ntsc to pal was it contained a update which wii brick blocker couldnt remove so the trick is burn two isos on seperate discs one without brick blocker and one with brick blocker ,first you put in the disc without brick blocker update till 10 - 15 percent pull the plug on the wii and throw that disc in the bin ,then you put the brick blocked disc in and you are good to go ,this is the only way known to avoid duplicate channels i have did it with both galaxy and metroid and it worked a treat but i dont think ill be doing it again becuase who knows waht damage you are doing cancelling updates...
