    Lightbulb Disc channel updates question

    I have a softmodded wii running on version 4.2E. I heard that new games have updates that are installed when you play them from their original discs. Are these updates silently installed or does it ask you whether you want to update or not? And what are these updates? Do they update your system to 4.3? Because such thing would brick my wii. If it does such thing, is there a way to disable them?

    If you've followed one of our softmod guides, you must have missed the part about Priiloader. You do not want to accept any official Nintendo update if you wish to remain softmodded and problem-free. WiiJohn's got a guide on Priiloader in the Recommended Guides section, I suggest you take a look.

    I did not use a guide from this forum, unfortunately. I will have a look at that guide

    I load my games through usb loader (I run games from my hdd), but I am afraid that a family member might play from an original disc through the disc channel and brick my wii. Does it ask you if you want to update or it updates silently?

    The updates prompt a user; Priiloader has two very important hacks: block disc-based updates, and online updates. Those two at a minimum should be enabled; look here, for example.

    OK, i will use that link. Btw, does it block the updates if i load a game from my hdd through a backup launcher? Also when you say it blocks online updates, it will stop me from maually updating to 4.3 (from wii menu)

    Ok one more question:
    I am using this guide http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-news/660...-released.html

    I downloaded the file and there is an "extra" folder. Do I move it as well as "Priiloader" folder to apps or is it useless?
