    • Update includes access to the SD card Wii Menu
    • Can download VC/WiiWare directly to the SD card from the Wii Shop Channel (though it really just auto-copies them to NAND and deletes them after you are finished using them)
    • Ability to save and access Wii Channels off of the SD card
    • SDHC card support
    • Photo Channel version 1.1-b
    • Deletes every version of the Twilight Hack (including beta2)
    • Patches IOS16
    • Fixed the Bug that was used in the Homebrew Channel Installer


    This is going to mess up the Homebrew Channel I installed last night.

    Oh, why does this happen to me!

    About time I say, it's nice to finally be able to rest easily about Wii memory. Much more convenient for playing Wiiware and VC games.

    Nice to finally see them doing something about the storage problem. Obviously, I won't be downloading it anytime soon though since I intend to install homebrew eventually.

    How is the homebrew stuff? I've never even considered it with my luck modding my cell phones and their never right again. The Wii is too much money IMO to be turned into a brick.

    This is a pleasant surprise. Didn't know we were allowed to discuss Home brew in the forums (or make mention of it) :). I'm glad Nintendo realizes that not just nerds and Otaku want more storage space. I'm still using a 2GB card at this point.

    accdng to the rules we cannot talk about illegal things, or warez. HBC is not all about cheating and playing illegal backups.

    Whilst that's true, there is a large number of people who do use it for playing illegal copies of games and cheating.

    When their activities ruin the online play of a game I've paid for, then I think it becomes unacceptable and for that reason I'm glad the latest update screws the HBC - I just wish it would brick the wii's of those who have it installed too.

    Sorry but I've had too many races on Mario Kart ruined by dickheads out to spoil it for everyone, and for that reason I hate the HBC and all who use it.

    so you want a large number of people, who do nothing wrong using the HBC to be completely screwed by people who use it to ruin a bit of fun for you? you must live in a nanny state where that attitude is acceptable. its not all about you.
    besides, did you read the release comments? it removes the use of many hacks, as well a the ability to install the HBC.

    While I agree the people who use it to cheat in online games are dicks, why must all homebrewers suffer when most have no intention of cheating or pirating? Personally I just want to be able to play my import games. I bought the console fair and square, so I should be able to modify it and install programs as I please.

    Unfortunately, yes we are living in a nanny state. In a few years you won't be able to go to toilet in this country without the government poking its nose in.

    Oh grow up for god's sake!

    Yes, it is acceptable, when the software in question (the HBC) provides an easy means for unscrupulous users to play pirate software and cheat online with it, therefore spoiling the experience for those that actually went out and legitimately bought their software. THAT is unacceptable. And unfortunately the fact that the HBC makes it possible is it's downfall. I'm afraid the minority ruin it for the majority of HBC users...

    Why are a few so supportive of HBC? Why would you want to run some crappy open source media players and 10+ year old games (Quake) on your Wii?!

    I'm sorry I can't see the big deal - is it the thrill of getting something to run on it that normally wouldn't?! The HBC doesn't seem to do anything useful (of course I understand that this is my opinion, but I'd love to hear from those doing amazing things with it that can't be done on a 10 year old PC). As Napalm says, getting import games to run is one of the bigger advantages, but I suspect even that opens it up to Nintendo's wrath as they've region-locked it for a reason (money, probably).

    I would have been perfectly happy with HBC to exist if it didn't provide an easy means for idiots to pirate and cheat online, the fact it does means that Nintendo have more than enough justification to target it, and rightly so.

    I agree. I have the same problem with tools like R4.
