Active Life Explorer required Wii Update,now USB Loader GX won't work.
A few months ago I spent about 8 hours reading through all the tutorials to hack my Wii with 4.3 and install Homebrew and USB Loader GX.
It was a tedious process, but I was able to get to the point that I had everything working, and I had all of our games backed up on a USB drive and working.
I really like having this option because my 5 and 7 year old boys are very rough with cd/dvd discs and these games are very expensive.
Today we bought Active Life: Explorer. I took a nap, and woke up to find out that the game didn't work and my wife installed an update on the Wii to get the new game to work. She said Wii wouldn't even open the disc so she tried an update and apparently that worked.
I checked the system out, so far everything with the Wii works fine except I can no longer get the USB Loader GX to load. I suspect I need to run the hack again to fix the IOS to use USB Loader GX again, but I want to confirm before I do this whether there are any known issues with new games not running on an older IOS. I don't want to get caught in a loop of hacking the console to play games on USB Loader GX and then having to run the update to play Active Life: Explorer or other new games.
Is this a known issue that new(er) games may require an update to work?
What is the workaround so that you can run an IOS that allows Homebrew/USB Loader GX to work but will also run the new games?
I did a search on both Google and in this forum for new games/Active Life:Explorer requiring an update, but as with all searches, the key to getting results is the search terms. The ones I tried yielded no results for my question. I apologize in advance if this is actually a common topic here.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
