    How to play Trauma Team, Endless Ocean 2, Lego Harry Potter without updating?

    Ok, I've been outta the scene for like two years...

    1st edition Wii, I mean literally the first darn batch they made.
    1st Wiikey - 1.9s
    Kinda Softmodded with HBC, Uloader, and a bunch of other junk.
    Running 4.2 system menu.

    How do I bypass the 4.3 system update for these games? The discs want me to update before I can play them. Do I scrub them or something? Do I install a custom IOS? I think I did that for NSMB, but that was a long time ago and I only did it cause my wife bought it and had a fit when it did not work...lol... anyways, I like to use the straight up discs, not a USB drive to play, it's easier for my kids.

    Help?

    read the softmod guide, follow the softmod guide, and you will end up with priiloader, which can block all updates.

    Yeah, I've been looking over the guide this weekend, but I did not realize that Priiloader not only blocks the updates, but overrides it and allows you to play. This is true then? Once I have Priiloader running I can play any new game without having to update?

    That is correct. You may come across games that require YOU to update some ioss to make them function though.

    Thats what I have been looking for. I want to play my Mario Bros' original disc and all I'm seeing is about patching the ISO to play it.

    When Epic Mickey comes out, will it likely play without issues with priiloader? *Off the disc, I am getting special edition* I want to softmod but my wife will kill me if the game she's been waiting most of a year for won't play on our Wii.

    some bad blocks are normal, no need to worry

    considering black ops just came out and had the 4.3 update on it, it's pretty safe to assume that this one will to. If you don't have priiloader installed, GET IT!

    so with Priiloader on my Wii it will still play the Epic Mickey just minus the updates from the disc? I'm used to how 360 prompts for occasional updates so the system updates on disc are kinda weird to me.

    I believe you've been told this already; why do more folks have to confirm what most other frequent participants of this site already know? A simple search or a reading of our softmod guides spells it out.
