    Last night the Wii Shop wasn't available for a few hours because Nintendo has released a new firmware update you can now download!

    It says that the update was at around 10 oclock. I was playing at this time so would it update the next time I turn it on.

    So the changes are the ones listed on the url at the first post?
    Anything else that someone find? Im doing the update now...

    Btw, does anyone knows how big is the update file? I have it online for about 20 minutes on on a 768kb wifi and it is in the middle of the progress.

    I found that sending messages is now almost instant. I sent a message to my email and got it within 3 minutes

    Nice.

    I have done the update also.

    I found in the internet settings the AOSS option. I dont know what is that :aureola:

    Also, some of my messages in the board, are having problems (the wii told me that with a message in a window).

    Im liking the new quicker shop channel. The overhall will make it much easier to navigate when new consoles like the neo geo come on board and bring an expanded library.

    Not yet, but as far as i heared American Wii Owners have to accept a site in which it says that Nintendo is allowed to brick modded Wii's if they want to.

    The Wii's modchip's still working fine, but as this disclaimer said and which you had to accept to update the Wii, they are now allowed to brick the Wii and you're not allowed to cry about it. Or well, you can cry, but it won't change anything.

    Maybe... MAYBE this is just step one to total world domination... no wait... to get rid of all modded Wiis. Now that you have accepted this disclaimer, they may bring another update that kill the modded Wiis somewhen. MAYBE.

    edit: Oh and btw: If you own a WiiKey, like me, it won't read the Setup Disc ( 1.2 ) anymore and since the WiiKey developers seem to be lazy asses, there is no update in sight right now.

    The Wii disc slot illuminates when you eject a disc. It did not do this before for those of youthinking that it did. It would only flash when you turned it on or pulsate when youg to a message.

    Oh yeah. That throbbing crap can wake a man up at 5:30 in the morning. Especially when it thinks I have to get up RIGHT THEN and grab that firmware update.

    Is the new agreement you have to accept dated newer than the one that originally came with the Wii? When I check the Wii Network agreement it's dated 11/19/06. Seemed like it had to download it from their website just to view it.

    In this agreement they warn you not to use unauthorized devices and state they may damage your Wii console. They don't go into details how it may damage the console. So that's kind of left open for them to do it I guess. They also state they can disable unauthorized or illegal software that has been placed on your console without notifying you.

    So is the new agreement different than the Wii Network Service/Wii Console agreement 11/19/06 you had to agree to just to use the networking features in the first place?

    edit: Also, Wii Shop and the News Channel don't work anymore unless you get the 3.0 update, at least for me. Says I need the update for it to function.
