    Hi mate,

    You could run "pimp my wii" or "modmii" and this will update all your wads/IOS and this should sort the update problem.

    Try these options before trying the one below.

    I update the wii's it asks me for an update and i aint had a problem and i have even updated to 4.3 without losing the HBC or the softmod but please note this is a RISK i take.

    Regards

    doesn't priiloader have an option which blocks updates, that's if you have it installed (hold reset button whilst you power on)

    if you have a cfgusb loader and a usb drive the game can be loaded onto the usb drive and played from that with no update

    I just updated my mates wii to 4.2e using the modmii which is easy to follow. His wasn't playing a retail disc but once updated it was fine.
