Help! How can I play "Donkey Kong... Returns" (on v4.2u) without downloading update?
Okay, let me make this as brief and as lucid as I can.
Exactly one year ago (Dec 2009) I used xzxero's incredibly simple guide (Modify any Wii 4.2 & below - GBAtemp.net) to install the necessary mods - I installed Homebrew, DVDX, BootMii as IOS2 and boot2; I made a NAND backup; I restored the Trucha Bug; I deleted the Stub IOS's; I installed the cIOS and patched the System Menu IOS; and I installed priiloader v0.30.
I was able to play all the wads that I wanted. Terrific.
And then I bought "Super Mario Galaxy 2" this past May, which required an update from the disk. I checked around online and found that it was safe to update from the disk, so I did it. Everything worked fine.
But then I ripped the Sonic 4 wad a few months ago and that wouldn't load through Homebrew. So I gave up on that.
I just bought "Donkey Kong Country Returns." When I put it in it required a system update the same as "Super Mario Galaxy 2." I figured that it was safe so I did the update. It said that the update failed. But nothing was bricked and every already installed wad game and everything worked fine. My Wii is still a version 4.2u.
But it still appears that I can't play "Donkey Kong Country Returns" without doing the system update. And since it fails every time (the updating from disk attempts) I really can't play it.
1. How do I bypass this update?
I'll note now that I tried to use priiloader, and when I went to "System Menu Hacks" to try to override the updates it just went to white and went back to the priiloader menu. Again, the Wii still works.
2. Is it possible that my updating with the "Super Mario Galaxy 2" disk update screwed up my ability to load wads, messed up my priiloader, or even screwed up my ability to load "Donkey Kong Country Returns?"
What should I do? What is the safest way of doing this? Much obliged!
