Has anyone updated yet?

Anyone who used the Shop Channel updated (IOS 50, and 51 I think), with System Menu 3.2U update to 4.0? Will it update safely? --Piko

I'm wondering the same, i have the ios shop hack installed and System Menu Version 3.2E, but i'm not going to update untill i either know it's safe or someone tells me how to uninstall the ios shop hack. --Wiibrewfan4 20:06, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I just updated with a Wii that has the shop channel patchmii used on it. It updates fine. --Piko

Yeah, someone who's updated, see if HBC works. --FUNKAMATIC ~talk 17:17, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Just updated my PAL Wii. The Homebrew Channel is still there and from what I can tell normal Homebrew applications still work fine. Tested a few games like Mahjongg Wii, Smashing and Horror Vacui. --Botskiz 18:23, 25 March 2009 (GMT+1)

sweet, thanks Bitskiz!--FUNKAMATIC ~talk 17:28, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Out of curiosity I tried copying the Homebrew Channel to SD and launching it from the SD Menu. Even that works like a charm, from what I can tell. --Botskiz 18:30, 25 March 2009 (GMT+1)
WTF?! that's freaking sweet. Does DVDx work? (no skin off my nose, I don't use it) If it does, what did nintendo even do to limit HB?--FUNKAMATIC ~talk 17:31, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Not sure if DVDx Works or not, since I never had it installed, but Twilight Hack Beta 2 doesn't work anymore. --Botskiz 18:43, 25 March 2009 (GMT+1)
So what isn't working about HBC ? The "effect" described on the page is a little bit ambiguous... WendelScardua 18:45, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Read Hackmii--Arikado 18:53, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Wow, that's fairly neat that the HBC launches from the SD card directly. Not that it makes a huge difference, since you have to have the channel installed in the first place before it can be copied to the SD card in the correct (and signed) format for your Wii to launch it. But still, that's awesome.

Not that it actually launches from the SD card. It copies it to the wii, runs it, and deletes it when you quit. --11rcombs 06:04, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

So, any word on whether or not 4.0 includes any code that updates the Wii automatically? It's occured to me that the update to the network policy might well have been to clarify the things that Wii Connect 24 already do, which is to update content for the News and Forecast channel and other WC24 enabled channels. I dunno, perhaps their legal jargon was challenged at some point and they had to rewrite it, unless there's evidence that they're putting that change to use anywhere?--Thegamefreak0134 03:47, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

I updated my wii and it seems pretty god, the homebrew I checked all worked, not that I checked that much, but it's pretty good if you've already got the HBC installed --TwoBladedKnight

I did the first changelist changes

Direct launch from SD card and SDHC support. --NavadeHo 17:34, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

looks good to me, NavadeHo. --FUNKAMATIC ~talk 17:46, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
People don't seem to get how this doesn't launch from the SD card. It just copies the channel over, runs it, and deletes it when done. --11rcombs 06:05, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
That's right, the channels are being copied to the NAND memory of the Wii first and are not booted directly from the SD card.


Finally SDHC support!!! Updating NOW! I don't care, even if I could NEVER use HB again, this update is the best ever! Edit: I even can run HBC fully off the SD card :p Sanderevers 18:56, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

System Menu 4.0 and HomeBrew SD Card?

Can someone clarify how this update affects a Homebrew enabled SD Card? I am personally worried that, although there is mention of the update not affecting previous installs, there is nothing about whether the update re-formats the SD, or overwrites the file system of the SD! Obviously a full SD backup is recommended, but is it a must???

The update itself does nothing at all with the SD Card, so anything you stored on it will still be there after the update.
Nintendo can't decide to just format your SD card ;) That wouldn't be legal Sanderevers 14:11, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Small change i maded

IOS 61 IS used for the new shop channel. I installed the the ios 61 wad dump and the shop channel was able to work. and i was able to download the upgrade of the wii speak channel thru the new shop channel and it worked perfectly. no problems. no errors. no conflict. i am running 3.2U please dont erase that small change or revert it. installing ios 61 and the new shop channel wad was the only way for me to see if it will work. I am not talking about anything illegal because i enjoy being on 3.2u and do buy my games legit thru the shop channel. that is the only reason why i did what i did.
