    A little Confused - ??UPDATES??

    Love this forum, tons of great guides- GREAT WORK, i was able to softmod 4.2u and have HBC/USB Loader GX running properly. I understand how to safegaurd against games trying to update.

    Now my question is, i want have my Wii connected to the internet, will the Wii auto-update? is there a way to block it? Any help would be great

    I have never seen a wii autoupdate, but to hear some ppl talk inthese forums seems like there is an evil wii ghost that just comes into your house and does it while you are at work and the kids are in the house, but not doing anything to the wii (hint hint). so I turn the wiiconnect 24 off, use preloader to skip updates, and use parental controls to make system changes.

    Straight from the 4.2 softmod guide.

    D7)Installation of priiloader. After you install ios70patched, you are able to install priiloader.
    -Find the only app in HBC that does not have an icon, yet says apps\priiloader\boot.dol, and load it.
    -Read the instructions, and hold down B, and press + to use ios249
    -Once it is done, reset your wii and it will take you to Priiloader menu
    -From there, go to Hacks and check the ones you want. Block disc update and Region free ones are recommended. you can check what the others do here
    -After you are done, go to the Settings and change autoboot to System menu.
    -Reset the wii. You are done!
    If you ever banner brick your Wii (God forbid) you can access priiloader menu by holding down reset button while booting the Wii, then access HBC to undo the brick (yeah i know it rocks). After that you can install all the Wiiware/VC/channel wads you wish, without bricking fear.

    Sorry im getting confused, again.. your talking about priiloader... a few paragraphs earlyer in teh guide it says "

    because preloader for 4.2 has not been released yet. Once it is, this will no longer be compulsory. But for now, be safe! "

    anyway... priiloader has the option to stop checking for updates?

    Yep, check out the all about priiloader page.

    Like oddgriffin was saying, it works just fine on 4.2fw.
