    Rock Band 2 NTSC update

    Hi I bought Rock Band 2 NTSC. I have version 3.4E on my pal wii, but the game asks for an update. I think it cant be a firmware update as 3.4 is the highest I can get. Can I update the game without bricking my wii? is there a poosibility it could put 3.4U on my pal wii?

    Any help would be much appreciated guys

    Do not update your conosle with an out-of-region title, ever. You'll brick your machine.

    Thanks for the quick repsonse. I was told that it would only brick my wii if it was a system update i.e. to a new version 3.5 (which doesnt currently exist) and some threads have said this is a necessary update for the instruments. Definitely do not want to brick wii though! :-(

    Just out-of-curiousity, how are you currently modded? (software? modchip?)

    I know the disc can launch with an update blocker on.

    If you launch copied games from the official disc channel, then you're modchipped ... no Homebrew Channel or "Backup Launcher Gamma", right?

    If so, any idea what chip? : \

    Well, unfortunately, this is as far as I can take ya.

    There are problems with the 3.3 and 3.4 firmwares and copied discs. (check the link in my signature) I can't tell you to physically remove the update from the disc, only because the disc will no longer run on a 3.3 or 3.4 firmware machine.

    If you're interested, a firmware downgrade might get you playing ... and then some. There's a link for that in my signature too. It'll get you familiar with things such as Wad Manager (self applied updates / Virtual Console / WiiWare installations) and StarFall (update blocking).
