    I was just reading on Maxconsole, and someone from the Wii-Addicts Team just created a tool that will prevent games from Bricking your Nintendo Wii's! It's a FREEWARE software and it patches the image file before it is burned to the Disc, and it can actually REMOVE the update included with the game! This seems pretty cool!!! HERE is the link to the article if you want to read about it!

    I see this being VERY useful the day Nintendo releases the firmware that detects modchips. I'll have to backup all self updating games that get released.

    Anyone tried this on Mario Strikers Charged?

    This sounds very useful indeed! No more worries about playing the latest future NTSC games like Smash Bros or Metroid on my PAL Wii :D

    Hi guys., newbie,

    I have some questions:

    how important is it for the wii to updated?
    and how does the wii updated if it doesnt have too?

    and if we remove the update, will it affect the wii or the game play in anyway?

    How do know which games have updates and which dont?


    Oh and what if you play the original games(not a backup) what will happen?


    I figure it was just burn and play

    As far as I know it removes the "check" for the latest firmware. So far, I don't think that(cue the prove me wrong posts), any of the latest games require an update to run. But the game disc requires you to pass a firmware update check, if it doesn't the disc also carries a version of the latest firmware which it will then proceed to install and log so the game doesn't need to "check" again. All this program does is stops the check and install of firmware, so if a game that actually required an update to play comes out this will let you boot it up but it will probably not run properly and be glitchy.
    Best to always ensure your firmware is up to date via the wiiconnect function and use this program. If you encounter problems/glitches stay glued to the forums. it's probably a bad iso or you need to re-burn using better media or at a slower speed.

    Ok..

    so we bypass the "check" for the firmware or update with the program. ok


    but how about if we rent games and play with the original disc... and that disc have an updated.. then what? we can't prevent that.. of after we wiikey our Wii.. the only thing we can play is back-ups?

    why don't update your wii through wiiconnect or with an iso from you own region to update it once in while. Why are people all happy with the brick prevent stuff. When you download an iso from a different region it takes like a few hours, just spend a few minutes of that to do some research to see 1. Is there an update? and 2. Is it on this disc?

    I got the best anti-brick tool ever: YOUR BRAIN! Just use it once in while!
