Ashes Cricket 09 PAL
I know that there's already a thread open about the torrent for this game, but my questions are more to do with the game in general, so hopefully I've done the right thing by starting a new thread.
I've downloaded the Wiierd PAL torrent version, burned the iso and copied the save game as per the other thread and everything works fine. However, I've noticed that when the disk is in the drive, the game channel shows a "System Update" message instead of the usual game graphic. I'm already on 4.1E, so what I'd like to know is whether or not I (or rather my husband) will need the update to run the game and whether or not it will hose my HBC access and softmod.
My apologies if this seems like a noob question, but I *am* new to the Wii mod scene and I did Google for info on the update without success. I'd appreciate any help or advice anyone can give.
I'd be very wary of updates. Out of region updates will brick your Wii. Best have Skip update set in you loader.

Oh, believe me I *AM* wary of updates - that's why I'm posting here!

As far as my system goes, I installed HBC using bannerbomb, then after having problems getting various backup games to run, I followed a tutorial over at afterdawn written by Larrylje. Unfortunately, I can't link to it as he's now taken everything down, but the apps I used were:
(Also DowngradeIOS35 and IOS Downgrader, but I assume those just just fixed my first attempt screw-up!)
I'd be intersted in finding out whether there's anything amongst that lot that would be affected by the Ashes system update.
Also, would the update install 4.1E on a virgin Wii with no wireless connection?
