New Wii Firmware Update 3.0 A Mod Killer?

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007
new-wii-firmware-update-3-0-a-mod-killer

 

According to www.vooks.net Nintendo has released a new frimware for their Wii consoles that add alot of minor fixes and updates to the UI but they have also seemingly started to take a stance against moding of their consoles. The above warning is what you will see if you choose to do the new Wii update, notice the part about “unauthorized technical modification”.

Rumors have ran wild that the new update will brick your console if you have a mod chip installed, but the scene is reporting that so far the only real effect this update has on moded consoles is that the SD Media Launcher, Maxdrive and Action Replay discs, and the homebrew mod chip Wiifree do not work after the update. For more info on what mod chips are reported to be working and a full list of changes in the new update:

Team Xecuter Retires From The Mod Chip Business

Friday, August 3rd, 2007
team-xecuter-retires-from-the-mod-chip-business

It looks like Team Xecuter has been spooked enough by the raids carried out in the United States this week on mod chip sellers that they have decided to retire from the mod chip making business. They say they will continue to sell and develop accessories for gaming consoles but no longer manufacture mod chips. This is a big loss for the moding scene as these guys were at the top when it came to mod chip quality. To read the exact statement and discuss this further check out our forums HERE
