    I've never heard of anyone bricking because they used an imported game...who ever told you that was either messing with you or misinformed.

    As for your question about games wanting to update; games don't actually try to update themselves, what they may ask to update is your system menu. However, if you have Priiloader set to block disc updates you can play these games without them telling you to update your system first.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    If you follow the "Softmod ANY Wii" guide, you'll be perfectly safe. Accepting an out of region update (example System Menu) can wreak havoc on the unsuspecting user. Re-read the very first sentence I just wrote.

    Just be sure to always use a backup loader (USB Loader GX, CFG Loader, etc etc) and as long as you have followed OUR guide, you're golden.
