    Well, this certainly ain't surprising. It's old news that goes back far as the first Wii updates. :lol: This ain't news at all really, just confirmation of a flaw all gaming consoles need t' bloody fix already: they've absolutely no ability to rollback firmware.

    It took awhile to update but worked and up to date

    Lucky I'm not stupid enough to unplug anything during an update

    What were Nintendo thinking? Giving us 5GB update, that is far too much data. Do Nintendo think we have ultra fast internet like they do in Japan?

    Nintendo can fix this situation!!

    Yes, Nintendo can fix this with a download manager specially for those people with slow internet. Allowing to pause and resume the downloading when you want, also allowing the background download while you play a game, etc.. Another solution could be send firmware updates throught a special free disc or included in future games as they did with the Wii. Use a compression system to reduce the file size and improve the dowload time, and split the file by parts to download them at different times.
    Nintendo can use the double firmware flash feature to avoid the console brick by including a restore flash file that automatically reflash the system if the process going wrong, and unbrick the console to its normal status.

    Not really, they will release another firmware update next week to fix the freezing issues of the aplications.

    From what ive read online it was a download of some of the channels, normal updates will probably take about a minute
