Hi -- That can easily be avoided by either removing the update partition before burning using WiiBrickBlocker or just launch your games with any loader. All of the newer Loaders will automatically bypass the update partition so that the game cannot update your Wii on it's own.

Read up on the chip you bought. Some of them, like the Wiikey, have built in update protection. So even if you click on update, it will not pass through the chip. Hope this helps...

Wii not starting up!


  1. Buy or rent a new Wii game that is made by Nintendo and intended for use in your region
  2. Step 2 Turn on the Wii, insert the game and let it load.
  3. Step 3 Wait as the firmware checker in the video game checks that the Wii's firmware needs to be updated. If this does not happen, it means no firmware checker is on the disc and another game will have to be obtained to try it again.
  4. Step 4 Follow the directions presented onscreen when the firmware checker has finished checking. The firmware will now be updated.
  5. Step 5 Eject the video game disc when the update is done and restart the Wii.

Is there a way to downgrade the nintendo wii firmware from the maintenance screen


I don't think you can unless you format the system (this will delete ALL information including game saves). I personally have never done that so it might not work. Why would you want to delete the firmware though? If it's for Homebrew the last time I checked you could still homebrew on the latest update.

Downgrade wii from 4.0 to 3.4 or lower


The Following Steps assume you have the Homebrew Channel:

STEP 1- Load Wad Manager from the Homebrew Channel (hbc) and install
"iosinstaller.wad"


STEP 2- Load Custom Wad Manager from hbc and install "cios-fix.wad"


STEP 3- Load IOS Downgrader from hbc. Follow all directions until it tells you
that it has been completed. **KEEP IN MIND that this is different from
"cIOS Downgrader"!**

STEP 4- Load cIOS Downgrader from hbc **KEEP IN MIND that this is
different from "IOS Downgrader"!**

-L@@K---> MAKE SURE YOU PICK YOUR CORRECT REGION <---L@@K

-For example: 3.2U= USA/Canada; 3.2E= Europe; 3.2J=Japan

-OPTIONAL: You may choose another system firmware other than 3.2
if you want. My intention is to help guide you to downgrade to 3.2.
Remember that System Menu 3.2 is considered the 'ideal' firmware
for homebrew (if not all) to work properly.


STEP 5- (You may skip this if you wish) At this point you should be on System
Menu 3.2 (or other firmware). You may check your Wii settings to see
for yourself.

~~Again if your NOT in System Menu 3.2 you will not be able to do Step 6~~

STEP 6- Load Starfall from hbc. After reading the discalimer you will be
instructed to press B+1 instead of B+2. Press B+1 to continue on to
the next screen.
-As of version 0.5 Starfall has 8 options/patches to the Wii in which
you can install. The last 3 are the most important ones. Some people
just install everything which is fine.

-STARFALL comes with these options (the ones in red are the important ones):

~Replace healthwarning with back menu
~Region free GC games with video mode patch
~Region free Wii Games
~Region free channels
~No Mainmenu BGM (Background Music)
~Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller (Usefull for
recovering bricks)
~Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check
~Skip disc update check

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Complete~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Congratulations you have successfully downgraded your Wii along with
a rescue menu if have accidently bricked your Wii.

About costom firmware


simply, yes. custom firmware is hacking into your PSP to let you play games off your memory stick and run programs called "homebrew", all custom firmwareing is is unlocking the potential of your PSP to the max it can go.
Basically:  You can play games you download, Run Homebrew and etc.

The game you have on your memory card is an image file (an illegal copy) and it would have been running under modified firmware such as Homebrew.

Now that you have upgraded and gone back to official SONY firmware you will be unable to play this game as SONY do not support illegal files.
