Nintendo has released a new firmware update for Wii that brings the system menu to 4.3U. As of now, the only thing known that it does is remove the Homebrew Channel.
Won't work long I bet.
Of course it wont, what do you know that has lasted long against hackers? Other then the PS3 of course.
and....done, waninkoko update 4.3 is out.
My Wii is modded just cause I don't feel like putting a disk in anytime I have other people over to play so I backed up my games on a spare usb hdd
yea that apart from playing games for free ;)
Emulators. That's what to use it for. :P
How appropriate for its 4:3 aspect ratio!(yea, i know alot of games are still widescreen) Lol, standard definition.
Last time they blocked this with an update it was hacked by the same night it released.
It was hacked the night it was released. 4.3 I mean.
wii scu v0.25 updates shop and etc. Nity cant stop them lol. I don't hack to steal that for fags.I hack to enjoy the full power of wii. like DVDX,radio,Linux,region free etc. If nity copied some of the thing homebrew did besides piracy maybe people wouldn't need to hack.
That what only firewire updates do for the Wii it's not like you going to see a new channel.
Lol nintendo should call me i know how pirates work and i know how to stop piracy. if they would take my game pricing idea aka F-D games get ranked at 10$ or less and AAA full retail and B games 40$, Also add dvd playback and all the bells and whistles. threaten with a console brick. Some wii bans yea. simple to make it work.
The only way Nintendo will stop piracy is by going PS3 Exclusive or going on Steam. Dumb comment but its true. No other way to fix it unless they go Bluray for their next console.
By that time, Sony will be launching Greenray for their next console :P
You say that but eventually it will be hacked, nothing is perfect. Also most people who get ripped copies go out and buy the games they like, probably spending more than they would if they didn't do it. There is no way to stop piracy, just halt it for a while till someone works out how to get past it. Sony have has a good run but like the PS1 and the PS2 it will eventually happen.
When people said, there is NO way to stop piracy, makes me wonder if they want even it to stop... What can be cracked? the ps3? it can be cracked certainly, but what for?, tells me, who will in his right mind download more than 40GB of a game? or 50GB> yeah a few people 20% of the 100% of people who barely has a good connection. Now the next question, who in the right mind, would like to mod THEIR ps3 loosing online game for free? and all the sht going on home? Btw, your logic is laughable, MOST PEOPLE WHO GET RIPPED COPIES GO OUT AND BUY THE GAMES THEY LIKE? are you some kind of child, were born yesterday? or something!? most kids, yes kids, not adults cus we all know the major percent of pirates are formed by kids that only rip the game then done, GC says hi, xbox says hi, ps2 says double hi, PSP says more than double hi, DS says hi, xbox 360vsays hi, wii says hi too, heard you can even play games from a usb with the wii, your heard that, no need to burn games...wow So yeah, only way to kill the pirates is simple, going steam way which will be the future for sure if pirates keep screwing it for us, ala stupid hacker who for his stupid attempt got sony to take os off, what next, usb? anyway or steam or adopting bluray, at the time, next gen games would be more than 50GB, gotta love those who attempt to download such space then burn it...then keep updating their firmware with some slow mod ala psp, thank you but I prefer the ps3 to be the only console never hacked before, well nintendo nes and snes and N64 were I guess.
This release is a month old and so is this article. People who approved it need their approval rights removed.
So that means about 1% of the Wii owners will actually update now. :P
i think 50% of wii owners will update i had a Korean Wii and i updated to version 4.2U and pooffff error 003. Now I'm buying a original Wii to not affect my Wii with error 003 or 004 Nintendo can think Bravo nintendo for breaking my Wii :A
They have a whole section on resurrecting bricked wiis
lol there is no reason to update online games still work with previous updates because the online code is on the game not with the firmware and there is no new features on the console ... nice try nintendo
lol Waninkoko's v4.3 custom firmware was released ages ago to prevent this
lol the first link but the second one is gold rofl. someone had free time to do the 2nd one lmao.
Now that was funny.
why do this with the brawl+ scene? we need gecko y'know?
brawl+ is amazing.
but as stb said, it would be a pain. most people who hacked their PS3, use it for old games, like NES & SNES games.
US already saw this update forever ago. Naturally it was going to hit europe eventually. All it does is fix channel loading and naturally delete hopmebrew. Thankfully no report of bricks from this round of deletions. Don't think Big N will make that mistake again. It's not really that big of a deal, people who upgraded simply need to reinstall the software, Smashstack still works so if you used that last time it'll work again. I do enjoy the classic emulation... btw I think they just upgraded the psx emulator... gotta see if Wip3out works yet.
