Thread: New to WIIs

    New to WIIs

    Hi there. Is it normal for system updates to come with games? I have had my WII for about a week now, and i was expecting updates to be online. Putting a game in shows up as 'WII system update', i just wanted to make sure that's a normal WII thing before i click on it. Just a regular WII with a regular game.

    Yes, it is normal, however if you are softmodded then DO NOT UPDATE and look into installing priiloader.

    I am hard modded. So this poses a question

    I have my update blocker ON. In wassabi, that seems to mean block all updates - so presumably when i try to accept the update it'll just fail. I read that accepting an update in another region comes with a big risk of breaking the console.

    For the sake of completeness, i guess that the correct process for someone in my shoes would be..

    1) make sure the backup is definately own region
    2) disable update blocker
    3) install update
    4) enable blocker
    5) Put valuable original back in box

    Does that seem like a reasonable approach?

    Hope i'm making sense.

    Hi. I just thought i would reply back with my findings in case anyone else stumbled on this thread. I finally got a copy that worked (burned and verified the particular iso i was interested in). I did NOT disable the update blocker, assuming it would stop me from updating. However, the update worked anyway.. hmm. Perhaps the update blocker is for blocking system menu updates as opposed to updates needed for games. Anyway, worked fine. 'Course, i made sure it was a own region, but i'm not even sure if anothe region would have caused a problem - but why take the chance.
