    Updating Wii from new game?

    I have a PAL Wii on system 3.2, with the HBC 1.0.1 installed (no hard mods).
    The only reason I installed the HBC was to run Gecko OS to play a Japanese imported game (Fatal Frame) and it works fine.

    I just bought the new 'Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles' game (PAL).
    I put in the disk and In the disk channel I'm getting a message saying that the system will be updated and if the system has been modified, there may be trouble...

    Is it safe for me to update the system by clicking continue? It is a brand new (just released) game, so I assume it is the latest system version (4.2?)
    Will I lose the HBC? Brick my Wii?

    Any help and advice would be much appreciated!!!

    Anybody???

    I've been looking through threads and my brain is melting...

    So there's Starfall and Preloader, which can turn off the disc update (but apparently some newer games need additional things done before they will work).
    There's a guide to update to 4.1 with the HBC still working.

    But I don't know if any of these things will work on this game and they all look rather complicated.

    I'd like to keep things simple because (if you can't tell) I don't know WTF I'm doing. I JUST WANNA PLAY MY NEW GAME.

    Can someone at least tell me what will happen if I update with the game disk, like it's asking me to?

    Thanks.

    Dont update to 4.2 m8, best system to be on is 3.2

    Use this guide to soft mod ur New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii :

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    Make sure u Install Bootmii as boot2 (u sude be able to if u have 3.2), and after that make a NAND backup so if u brick u can get back to ur old system.

    One more thing u dont have to do the Trucha Bug Restor on 3. GET A CIOS ,
    just go to d (v3-3.2 can skip to step d), d) Run cIOS38 r14 installer, select IOS36 as the one it should use and then select wad install.

    everything else follow the guide

    U can play ur bought and backup games after whit neogamma and u can turn off disc update whit preloader.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I guess I can try doing all that but I've got a few other questions, since I'd rather avoid it (if possible). I have no intention of playing 'back up' copies.

    Should I try adding Starfall or Preloader to my HBC first and see if that works?

    Or try the latest version of Gecko OS?
    I have 'gecko 107b' but there is a newer gecko 1.9.2b.

    If I do try your suggestion, is an older version of HBC ok? Mine is 1.0.1 and I can't update it because I've never been able to get my Wii online.

    Thanks for your help!
    I'll be trying all this later tonight.

    Btw, what happens if I DO update with the disc?!

    I had a similar problem with Wii fit plus. I asked here but all of the answers I got didn't work and my thread got closed in the end!
    Eventually I solved the problem MYSELF (cheers guys.. not.)
    What I did was install the latest Neogamma and used the skip update option. Works fine now wish I got that answer in the first place instead of all the over complicated stuff that I didn't need and didn't work! Hope this helps.

    If (and I don't think it will happen) this doesn't work, use Neogamma to boot your original game. Bit of a pain but it works

    mushroom - Your thread weas closed because you did not follow advice given and kept asking the same questions over and over. It got annoying.

    Adas - NSMB has a 4.1 update. If you wish to avoid losing what homebrew you have then use this tutorial to bring you to 4.1, so you can then safely run the disc update if you wish http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...l-working.html
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I don't wanna argue or get in trouble mate but I followed most of the advice I just wanted confirmation that I wouldn't brick the Wii, I am a noob with Wii hacking, a straight forward 'use Neogammer and choose skip update' would've been great. Thanks anyway but have a lil patience with us noobs please!

    Btw, what happens if I DO update with the disc?!

    I wouled follow Tealcs advice, if u have homebrew already installed.

    But mushroom1 advice my help to if u dont whant to do the 4.1 update then the disk update, u can try neogamma or a new gecko, I my self use neogamma.

    4.2 is a homebrew killer, thats why u sude not update

    hope this helps

    gl


    PS.

    I wouled still first install Bootmii as boot2 if you can, and make a NAND backup, so u can be brick prof if some thing goes wrong.

    and no internet connection my give u errors in some guids (just a heads up), if thats happens see how to do it offline sude be in the guide.

    mushroom1, I gave you the advice to use priiloader, Quote,
    "If you have priiloader, that will stop disc updates"

    This is still better than using the option in Neogamma, as it prevents disc updates from any loader or usb HDD.

    Well, I had success!

    Tealc, I tried your advice first because it looked like less work. But but a few of the folders/aps were not being recognized so it didn't work.

    I then tried the method Kurdishpower recommended originally.
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    And it was all quite painless. The guide is easy to follow and I loved how it's very noob-friendly with a folder titled "copy these to your SD card".

    I didn't update to 4.1. I just used the 'skip disk update' feature (I think it was in the Priiloader options). So I've now got a more up-to-date 'update skipper' and 'region free' function and I'm still on 3.2.

    Thanks a lot for everyone's time!!!

    If the Wii was region free (like my PS3) I never would have had to go through all this crap. So, THANKS Nintendo!
