    Is there anywhere a firmware update list? so I can avoid updating my system beyond 3.2. I normally patch DVDs but I may have missed one or two.

    Install Starfall, it will remove the firmware check from every game, allowing you to play all your games on 3.2. I think Need For Speed Undercover is the only one so far causing issues without an update.

    you can check here :

    http://wum.talevas.com/?page=dev

    you can even replace update partition with this application (Wii Update Manager)

    note, the database is completed by users when scanning a new game with the program.
    it may miss new games if nobody added it yet.


    Edit :
    He asked for a list, stop telling him to instal starfall, that's not what he asked for !
    Answer according to the question first, then you can tell him about starfall too.

    Edit 2 :
    You see, he already has it [​IMG]
    he wanted a list only.

    Install starfall, once you have the starfall options enabled when you put in your disks it wont bother asking you to update (you may have to manually install wads to make some newer games work though, such is the case with Animal Crossing)

    Animal Crossing also has problems without updating. As remarked by djdynamite123, there is a partial list here.

    3.2E_B, B as in Bushing, it's 3.2E V2 if I remember well.
    the one allowing Wiiware + shop channel access to wiiware.
    (if you install this update, you will need a new update for the shop, See Tona's installer on wiibrew for that)
