Hey guys, sorry for the new thread, I searched & googled but couldnt find a definate answer, sooo.... I've beeen holding back updating my PAL UK wii from 2.2E to 3.0E (+ the extra little one) mainly due to a ruck of good 360 games coming out (Bioshock *cough*) but now I think am ready to begin Metroid 3 Obv I need to update it but Im scared to & have a few questions..... First, My wii is PAL UK with Wiifree 2.45 running on it. Its currently 2.2E f/w My first step was to connect my wii to my wifi network which I just did & it says "run system update now? yes/no" 1 - Do I need to remove the wiifree or is it safe to leave it in while performing the update? 2 - Should I do both updates one after the other? 3 - will the update make any difference to the way my wiifree works? i.e. a - will my wiifrees region unlock setting be reset to "off" as defualt? b - will I need to burn a new setup disc or a GCOS boot disc to turn region free back on? My next questions are about metroid itself. I have an NTSC backup..... 1- do I use brick blocker (I read this results in black screen on PAL wii) 2 - What about regionfrii? 3 - am I right in thinking that as long as my wii is 3.0E - burning metroid & running the 3.0U update will casue no harm other than dupe news/wether channels? I REALLY dont want to unplug my wii durin g the update as some said to do. Im not bothered about dupe channels Sorry for the massive post! cards.
