    big deal.

    if need be, users will likely have no issue playing 4.3 requiring games as usual. i wonder why nintendo even bothers.

    Basically it's just like system menu 4.2 but right now far worse.

    I suggest people with softmodded wiis install priiloader and block updates both online and disc. http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Priiloader

    If you need to update the shop channel use Dop-Shop: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Dop-SHOP

    Stick to system menu <=4.2

    If you need to update for games, just install missing IOS files using Dop-Mii or wad manager

    Dop-mii: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Dop-mii

    Here's the full list of changes from wiibrew.org:
    * Deletes the Homebrew Channel and DVDX, title IDs HAXX, DVDX, JODI, DISC, and DISK.
    * Now uses IOS80.
    * IOS254 stubbed BootMii is deleted.
    * Fixed Bannerbomb less stupidly this time.
    * Added IOS58.
    * HackMii Installer Userland+Syscall IOS exploit removed
    * NANDFS privilege escalation fixed
    * ES_AddTitleFinish now checks the signature (Trucha Bug Restorer and similar won't work anymore)

    Source: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/System_Menu_4.3

    So there are no known hacks at this time and this seems to be a whole load of work to be hacked.

    I wonder what Team Twiizer will have to say on hackmii.com?

    edit:
    WiiSCU still works: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiSCU this doesnt require a CIOS.

    How is that relevant? Some people obviously do bother with it or this item wouldn't be here.

    My guess is the following:
    1. Nintendo did a clean sweep of the code to remove many bugs
    2. Since the OS is made by various parties there may have been communication issues/delays.

    I dunno...i understand the desire to fight piracy...but the firmware updates like this just basically force even occasional pirates to become full time pirates especially when new games will force the "upgrade"...instead most pirated will just wait until a "fixed" version gets released into the wild and avoid buying it regardless of whether its a good game or not.

    Not to mention that there is always a slim chance that an update will lock up the device.

    If they're going to start selling games that automatically update my Wii... there will no longer be any point in buying their games... Kinda ironic, huh?
