    To update Wii firmware from game you must use a game with an Update like Mario Kart but it must be the same region as your Wii. In your case PAL version of the Mario Kart would be required to update to 3.2E.

    Hmmm I really thought that Mario Kart had the update. You may also want to try PAL versions of Super MArio Galaxy or SSBB. The other way is to install Homebrew channel and use the Custom IOS Downgrader 1.2 to update it to 3.2

    For NTSC games use wiu1.1 to remove the updates from the game iso before burning to disc. Never carry out update from NTSC-U (USA) or NTSC-J (JAP) games as it will brick your wii.
