    Flatmod problems with some games

    Hello all,

    I'm getting some troubles with my flatmod as some games requires updates from the game. I'm using the Update Blocker that comes with Flatmod config tool. Did some one had some experience already with updating from a game the wii with a flatmod?.

    Is that safe enough?. As a reference one of the games is Pok Bat Rev, my wii have firmware rev 3.1, it seems it request 3.4.

    Thanks a lot

    upgrading is fine as long as the games are from the same region zone.
    ie. your in australia you use pal etc.

    upgrading over the internet will solve stop games asking you to upgrade via the disk, please note though you wont be able to downgrade/use homebrew in Version 4.00 (the latest nintendo firmware).

    If you want the games to stop asking you to update, install a homebrew application called starfall on your console and choose it to "skip disc updates"

    He doesn't need that because the flatmod is already blocking disc updates, right? My experience is that you only see "update" in the disc channel if you press eject with no disc in the drive before you insert the game.

    I am also wondering how you can play games on 3.1 when the game requires 3.4. Is updating the only option? I know many people don't want to go higher than 3.2, so how do they manage to play new games?

    This is exactly the issue how do you play new games without updating?

    taking an update via the game does not = updating the firmware. My wii is still @ 3.4 and plays all of the newer games. Madden NFL10, Wii Sports Resorts GI Joe etc.

    After a few months of more experience, I can say that I've had to update for a couple of games in order to play them. It didn't change my 3.4E version, but since all my backups are NTSC it gave me duplicate weather and news channel.

    To get rid of those, I use homebrew channel and the duplicate channel remover. Before getting confident enough to use disc updates, I would play those "problem" games through Homebrew channel and GeckOS.

    @srog , in order to update the chip did you use an original guitar hero 5 or a copied version. How new does the disc have to be ? and will any disc do ?
    Sorry about the newbie questions but thats what i am unfortunately.
