Thread: Wii EA Sports Active requiring update.. (will it brick?)

  1. #1

    Wii EA Sports Active requiring update.. (will it brick?)

    I apologize if this has been addressed... I did a search and couldn't find something about my specific question... and I read the ultimate sticky with no mention of this so

    I am a newb on this stuff and I had a buddy of mine soft-mod my wii a while ago (like a year?) using the method that involved the zelda game (I really don't know how it works)

    but I stopped playing my wii for a while and I eventually ended up getting EA Sports Active as a gift (real version) and when I put it in it tells me I have to update and it could make a modded console not work anymore.

    Is there a way around this? Like avoid the update altogether? Or make it safe to play it?

    Thanks and I apologize for my newbness =/

    also, if there is something I could check on the console to help give you more details to help let me know!

    edit: Version 3.3U

    Ok I wasn't sure which you were referring to (as I said before I am a noob and am trying to figure this out as I go along)

    but on the Homebrew app in the top right corner it says 1.01 - IOS36 v4.18

    And I also have wii Gator backup loader version .3

    If that is not the versions you meant please guide me in the right direcction, thanks

    start the game with your backup launcher.

    ahh that easy? I didnt think about that heh

    Should I just avoid the official Wii updates? Or is there a way for me to get around that?

    well while I have you guys here, how hard is it to upgrade my mod software and at this point is is worth it? I havent even played a backup in a while I dont even know if it will play the newer ones.

    When I tried to open it with the loader I got a blue screen error #002 telling me to restart. I did and everything still works fine but it seems I can't load the game that way.

    I assume by your responses that it is NOT ok for me to update? Is this my only solution, I'd like a more immediate one, but if installing new stuff is my only way then I may just have to wait or find someone else.

    Is it a simpler process if you already have it softmodded?

    Is this guide something I should follow?
