Laut Nintendo erlaubt '''WiiConnect24''' das automatische Herunterladen von Aktualisierungen und anderen Downloads, auch wenn die Konsole nicht aktiv benutzt wird oder sich im Standby-Modus befindet. Das ist aber keine vollständige Beschreibung, da sie nicht erklärt, wieso es eine Option gibt, WC24 einzuschalten, gleichzeitig aber die Funktion "Standby-Verbindung" abschalten lässst.

WC24 ist eigentlich ein Codename für den /dev/kd/-Treiber, der erlaubt Netzwerk-bezogene Aufgaben auszuführen, wenn der Haupt-Prozessor (Broadway) ausgeschaltet ist. Nur ein kleiner Teil dieses Programms wird tatsächlich benutzt, um zum Beispiel große Datenmengen (z.B. System-Aktualisierungen) herunterzuladen oder um kleinere Datenmengen aktuell zu halten, z.B. Nachrichten, Wetterdaten...

Der kd-Treiber ist groß, ungefähr 360k, und benutzt SSL, Sockets, WL/ETH (Wifi/Ethernet). Er macht etwa 75% des Speicherverbrauchs der Wii-Firmware aus.


Static analysis reveals the following main categories of functionality:
* Sophisticated task scheduler, including periodic wakeup of either processor for maintenance tasks, and tracking max duty cycle ("Too much wakeup executed recently. Need to wait."), probably used for thermal management
* SMTP engine, for sending and receiving email
* Real-time clock, with synchronization to a Nintendo-run server (over SSL)
* Virtual Machine for running channel scripts ("CHANS"), which are apparently a variant of Javascript. (This technology has no known use!)
* Logging / debug capability, e.g.
