System Update when game is inserted
Hi guys. I have modded a wii and insterted a game (backup). On thr disc channel it said system update. I didnt update because I have read that this is when your wii can become bricked. In fact it one of my mates softmodded his, put a game in and clicked system update. It bricked his wii to the extent that it was dead apart from the power light and the dvd drive flashing momentarily. How can I get around this and stop my wii becoming a real brick? Is this what wii brick blocker is for??? If i use this on the iso's will it stop the update message or just stop my wii from becoming a brick?? Thanks and sorry if this is a bad nooby question (Im on a learning curve guys )
Anyone help me with this?

Before you burn your backup game, use the program brickblocker. Very simple to use. Just open the application, browse for the iso(game) you want to patch and click the patch button. It removes the games request to update your system. Hope this helps.
Its 4.0. I has been updated from 3.3e by the lad who it belongs to.

I did indeed run across the same situation as Col with "Mad World" and "SSBB" the game which wouldn't work when scrubbed with brick blocker, so I skipped brick blocker the second time and burned @ 2x and it didn't go black like the first time but asked to update. I'm still trying to decide if I want to risk it.

Is there a way around getting the disc to work if the game is persistent about not starting when using brickblocker?
