    Block Update in 3.4 ???

    Hi,
    I using firmware 3.4, with wii fix, so I can install wad files and use backup loader, but I am not really excited about auto updating. I wouldn't like to find my wii updated and blocked homebrew so I was wondering how to block wii update, but still use the internet connection.

    Would it block wii from updating if I block some port or address in my Wifi router firewall??? If yes, then does anyone know the exact port or address that wii uses to check for updates???

    Thanks...

    I'm not sure if any of the update blockers that exist (chip functionality, application) will stop an auto-internet based one.

    Your safest bet is to downgrade to the 3.2 firmware and install "StarFall".

    I didn't mean to use update blocker.
    I ment to block update server address in my Wifi router firewall.

    Like this(nintendo.com is just an example):

    So if I do this, then the newer games which dont run without updating to 3.4 will also run?

    Most people that downgrade to 3.2 obtain the same functionality of 3.4 by manually adding ios's ;-)
