    New super mario bros Wii retail copy

    i want to play NSMBWii retail copy on the original disc channel but keeps telling me i have to update it, but i have already installed waninkoko's 4.2 on my wii. i used these instructions to install it.
    Waninkoko Releases "Firmware Updater v4.2"

    Recommended updating steps (it's how I updated)...

    Prerequisites: You must have IOS30 v1040. If you don't, use Dop-IOS to downgrade it, before proceeding.

    1. Download and install the HackMii Installer v0.5 (you will need to do this even if you already have an older version installed).
    2. Download and run Waninkoko's Firmware Updater v4.2.
    3. Download and run Dop-IOS.
    4. Using Dop-IOS, downgrade IOS30 to v1040 (fixes "no vulnerable IOS's found" error, if you need to run the HackMii Installer again).
    5. Using Dop-IOS, reinstall the latest IOS61 without the sig-hash fix (fixes the upside-down Homebrew Channel).
    6. WIN!

    yes i know i can play it through gecko OS 1.9 but i don't want to have to open a homebrew app. is there any way around this? if you could help please help thanks

    It looks like you did the update to 4.2 correctly but you need to remember that a disc update is caused by an outdated ios. For instance.... You can have your console updated to 4.2 using the guide (like you have done) but still have that game prompt you for an update. This is due to you not having the ios installed of which that game needs in order to run. That game uses the newest ios53 which can be found on this site searching through the NSMB threads. Once you have that ios53 wad file installed via wad manager, load the game using the disc channel and you wont be asked to update. Myself, I am running firmware 3.2 which is very outdated but I am able to play that very same game without the update needed due to the simple fact that I have ios53 installed. Just remember that a disc update will not update your firmware (unless your below 3.4). Instead it will update/install ios', channels, and so on.
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    dop-ios will do it fine. after installing IOS53, it shouldnt ask for the update any more.
