    Should WiiConnect24 be left on or off?

    I've modded my 4.2 Wii via softmod. I would like to play games online and possibly use some other online functionality. What exactly does WiiConnect24 do? Does it automatically update my console? Do I need it to play games online?

    WiiConnect24 is always encouraged to be left off. Certainly I'd not leave it in standby. If you've installed Priiloader along with enabling the block online update hack, there's no reason it'd update on you. Certain things like Weather Channel and News Channel require it enabled. A few games may (there's conflicting info on for example, MarioKart). Again if Priiloader is installed and the block online update enabled (as well as block disc updates you're gold.

    hello
    in this page
    Preloader/hacks - WiiBrew
    i cannot find any hack regarding "block online update" but only "Skip disc update check"

    How can I block online updates so that i will be able to have wiiconnect24 on to use the weather channel?

    They are included in the hacks.ini within Dogegg's 3.1-4.1 tutorial; he also has a separate thread here on the subject.
