I have ver 4.2U and had softmod to play my backup disks. I finally went and got a usb drive as I was tired of burning disks and having my kids leave them all over the place. I managed to get that up and running yesterday thanks to the guide here. However I haven't moved everything yet, and when my son try's to play his new game, which I haven't made a backup image of yet, the game channel only gives him the option to do a system update which luckily he hasn't clicked on. I really do not want Nintendo upgrading my Wii, but still want to play the original disk as well, can anyone tell me how to keep the Wii from updating. As I mentioned the only option on the game channel is system update.
Greatly appreciate the assistance.
Install priiloader (included in every softmod guide on this site) and block disc updates. Then it won't appear again.
Blocking online updates might be smart also
4.1E | Bootmii as boot2 | Priiloader 0.7b | configurable USB loader V62-222 | Hermes v4 | Hermes v5.1 | Wanin v20

I thought I had priiloader, I'll have to go back and check, I remember going through that yesterday when I was updating the softmod to allow usb. I was trying to find a way to block online updates, but didn't see that. Do you have more information on that?
you install priiloader
go into the priiloader menu
go to system menu hacks
enable the hacks you want (block updates, maybe a few more)
I'm assuming the Priiloader screen is the screen that my Wii boots to instead of the usual default screen with all the channels. I have like four options (Wii, HBC, SD, and assuming the fourth is settings). However, I can not navigate the screen, and have been just rebooting to get into my normal wii screen with the channels. I have USB Loader and HBC set up as channels. This is how I've been accessing them, including the apps in HBC.
no that sounds like bootmii -backup the bootmii folder or rename it. Priloader menu looks like this when you hold down reset whilst powering on...
Do I put the Priiloader in the apps folder, or put Priiloader folder at root?
IN apps folder, I see that now.

When it says to edit the hacks.ini file. Becuase I have version 4.2U, does that mean I remove all the lines except for the ones that use 481?
