    Hi,

    I have a wiikey in my pal wii with 3.2e.
    I have run the wiikey config disc and selected "block updates" then saved the settings.
    I install a game that i know contains an update and the wii wants to install the update.
    Has anyone got this block updates feature working 100%?
    I know i can use wii brick blocker which i do but i was just curious.

    Cheers

    It shouldn't get an update for any game if you're using Brick Blocker. Make sure you have the latest version from GBATemp's Download section. But unless you running Homebrew, then any Wii Update doesn't matter to you cuz drive chips are undetectable by Nintendo. I have a Wiikey, running 1.9s and all I have to do is run Brick Blocker v1.3R2 on my ISOs. Download: Wii Brick Blocker V1.3R2 I probably have the "Block Updates" feature enabled but is not 100% reliable so make sure you use Brick Blocker V1.3R2.

    Good Luck, Jon

    That's true, Mario Power Tennis (Wii version) contains the 3.4x update. I'm in the USA, and it wouldn't work for me unless I RegionFrii'd it and Brick Blocked. I didn't get any update, but I'm running 3.4U.

    So what your saying is that the wiikey block update feature is crap and not working 100%.
    Yes i do use wii brick blocker but was just curious to see if others have that feature working.

    Cheers

    I do believe when I first got my Wii chipped, the WiiKey's "Block Updates" feature was enabled but when I put Mario Strikers in, I did get an update. So no, it does not fully work. Brick Blocker is the BEST method out there for hard mods.

    Even if you enable also de Dev Mode with the 1.9s config disc?
    I tried the Wiikey Block Update option and it worked with a new game like GhostBusters. Without both options on (Dev mode and Block update) the game required an update
