    A short question. But first: some info:
    I bought a Wii in januari 2007 and modded it with a Wiikey (the old one). I currently have 3.3E firmware on my Wii.

    I'm not sure if I can savely update my firmware. The newest firmware is 3.5, right? But will my Wii brick when I update? Because I need the update to play the newer games (like Mario Power Tennis).

    But I read it possibly triggers that my other burned games can't be played anymore if they are Trucha signed. Any1 has experience with that?

    it will be fine. dschill probably has no idea what he's talking about.


    to Hera:
    why would i take the time to list hundreds of available games?

    To any1 who is interested. Updating the firmware WILL cause some backup games that are Trucha signed to not work anymore.

    I've done this instead: used brickblocker to erase the forced update from the game. So now when I for the first time put in the dvd of Mario Power Tennis, it doesn't ask me to update, it simply starts and runs perfectly.
