New Wii Firmware Update 3.0 A Mod Killer?



According to 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:
