    This is an issue with systems below 4.2, that are not softmodded.
    If you are softmodded you can use the shop channel installer and internet channel wads to update it. This will then remove the update question.

    If you are below 4.2 and not softmodded I cannot see a solution.

    well i tried it out at 4.1 no soft mods .
    it asked to update , I chose not to , it let me continue.
    i first tried the weather , it wanted wiiconnect24 turned on and couldn,t go any farther without it.
    i then tried the news , same thing .
    but it did let me play games on line no problem.

    Ca

    Trying to figure this out as i'm new to the Wii world. I just purchased my WODE, wont be arriving for another week. I have a new Wii (3 days old) and i have it connected wirelessly. All channels ask me to update except news/weather. I have not updated yet as i'm unsure if this will effect me in any way.

    When you download the updates, what exactly does it update... as i'm trying to learn here...

    Thanks and appreciate the patience from a Wii newb.

    To those of you who can play your backup games online, are you on wired or wireless connections? If wireless then how did you configure your connections (did you have to do the wii system update when it asks, or did you just ignore it?)

    i did not try the internet channel.
    and i also did not try turning wii connect24 on.
    i will try on monday morning when i get out of work.
    i am figuring that when i turn wii connect24 on that the weather and news will work, probibaly the internet channel and games should still work online.
    i will see monday.

    hi
    i would not take that online update yet.
    wait a few weeks of reading so you understand what it limits you to.
    you may not even care, in my case it doesn't seem like it would effect me in any way.but i am still going to wait.
    i took update 4.1 from the new super mario game disk.and all is well.
    4.2 wouldn't bother me either i would loose the ability to play games from other countries,but there is no where to buy games from other countries around here anyways .and i don't download.
    but what would i gain? better internet use?
    would rather use my think pad wireless than surf on wii.
    all i really wanted was online game play for the kids, and that already works at 4.1 .
    now if i down loaded games so that i would end up with out of country games then i would never take that up date ever.
    it really depends on how you are going to use your wii.
    so i would hold off on that update untill you have figured out what else you will loose or gain.
    good luck

    The biggest reason not to update to 4.2 is as crf450r4u2nv has said. You loose the ability to play out of region games.

    If you have no intention of playing out of region games then update to your hearts content. It makes no difference to the WODE. I am running a 4.2 Wii and only play PAL games so no problem for me.
