    So I recently soft modded my wii. I am running 4.3U with the dark red theme. Now when I try to play any newer game I am prompted to do a Wii System Update. It appears that 4.3U is the latest and greatest. Why am I being prompted to run a system update and what can/should I do?

    your cIOS files are showing up less than what is on the disc. the stubs on the disc update are at 65535 (? someone correct me if im wrong) so the disc thinks you need to update. use priiloader to block updates, you will be good to go.

    system update simplified explanation :
    put disc in -> check IOS versions -> if version of IOS on NAND < version on disc, request update.

    Priiloader removes this check. you should have installed priiloader when you hacked the wii, otherwise if you make an error you cannot fix it. unless you have bootmii as boot 2

    When have you updated it to 4.3? Because nintendo updated a lot of IOSes on Sept 2010, and new games come with this update.

    If you don't want to update, just use Modmii to install priiloader and then enable "Disable Disc Updates" hack.

    I entered Wiiflow all of one time, used it to boot a game from a disk, and ever since newer games have been asking me to update. Does running Wiiflow install a cIOS without telling you?

    Wiiflow didn't install a cIOS, you did when you "soft modded" your Wii. Wiiflow wouldn't be able to run a game unless you had a cIOS installed. What did you do before running Wiiflow?

    Nothing because I didn't have a USB hard drive. I had the cios's installed for a while but I only used standard homebrew. It wasn't until after I tried it out that Donkey Kong and Sonic Colors asked me to update.

    wiiflow didn't do anything to your system (unless there's a bug i don't know about, but i don't use wiiflow).

    use priiloader, why haven't you installed it already and blocked the updates?

    I believe Metroid: Other M has it. But why would he want to update? If his games work, don't change!
