    Wasabi DX and game updates.

    Hi,
    I have a Wasabi DX installed in my Wii on F/W 4.2 (Pal). I tried to play a copied version of Mario Allstars, but it asked me to install an update. The message warned me that installing the update could cause any modchips to stop working. I was just wondering that if I did install it, is it likely to brick my Wii or render my modchip useless?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Do not update it will kill the region free ability of your modchip

    My Wii is already on version 4.2, so I don't have region free already.

    Just wanted to know if installing an update from a game will mess with my Wii or chip?

    richardsito was trying to show you a way to restore that capability, but hey... whatever. Consult your Wasabi manual or their website.

    Sorry if my reply caused any offence to Richardsito, but his response didn't answer my original question. He gave me a link which i opened (but didn't understand as I'm not overly competent with messing about with stuff like that) and mentioned after not too update as it will kill my region free. None of this helped with what I had asked.

    I found this site and registered as I thought I would find the help I needed. I didn't expect to be getting a narky and sarcastic and pretty Un-helpful response from a 'Moderator' of all people, just because I replied to Richardsito's reply stating I already lost Region free and just wanted to know if the update would knacker my Wii!

    Your IP says you're from the UK and this is an "E" (PAL) title, so you'd be safe from an out of region brick/update. Doesn't the Wasabi have some sort of mechanism to block unnecessary updates? Keep in mind, games are IOS-dependent (meaning if you're missing the one this game calls upon you'll blackscreen) and not System Menu-dependent.

    That's ok, I didn't took that as an offense at all.

    Sorry if i posted a link to something that wasn't useful or wasn't the thing you were looking for.

    so if it's just the Ios that the game needs to download, I should be safe to accept it without causing problems?
