    Over at Wiibrew.org, they are reporting another Wii update, and one user has stated that the trucha exploit has been patched. This needs confirmation.

    I don't have a modded Wii, but I can confirm that an update is indeed out there, since I just downloaded it (and yes, I did the Shop Channel one before, so it is not that).

    EDIT: This will not affect trucha signed games now, but may in the future once Nintendo updates another file. Bushing recommends not to do this update.

    if that's true... well atleast we had our fun. gg.
    btw i still doesn't know how they can fix it with firmware update. You modify the iso via trucha and then sign it with it. So did they just change the code which signs it or what? :| Anyway not a big loss for me. Once made random mario strikers disc with fucked up characters.

    Anyone got a source for this? I don't mean the wiibrew homepage either. Where did they get this info that needs verifying? The forums on that site are pretty bare so no help there.

    I don't think it does, there has been no talk of that. I'll check later.

    EDIT: It still works here [​IMG]

    They don't sign it with the Nintendo key but is using some kind of bug in the verification...

    I only have SSBB fixed with Trucha... Will keep away from the update as long as possible.

    I read on another forum that it does not. Someone tested it, and it worked. I have also heard that the Datel Wii Freeloader works as well.

    To fix the TP exploit the console would need to verify the savegame before the game is loaded or patch the game on-the-fly while it is running.
    That is way to much effort to prevent an exploit that only works for homebrew...

    Well, if this is after the Wii Shop update then I'm very glad I updated between the thin window of time - between the time the Wiiware update and this Trucha destroying one. So I get Wiiware AND Trucha. [​IMG]

    But we still need confirmation. The Wiiware one released two days ago, will not destroy Trucha (just played DVD5 fix Brawl) but maybe there is a new one being described here. But perhaps not. [​IMG]

    US Launch Wii, completely up to date (just checked again), Manhunt 2 Trucha'd works fine. Can't check Twilight exploit (no SD card yet), but I'm sure based on what others are saying too, it works fine. Update is safe.

    If true then cue dual mod chip systems (drive+firmware) in 5,4,3........

    Failing that I predict the rise of stupid auction prices as happened in the early PSP days. Good thing as I have a early version wii (presently not working but it is a simple fix).

    Umm...I have an NTSC-U Wii with a Wiikey with version 3.2U and the 1.9g update. So, what does this mean? Only Trucha isnt working rite? So, I can just go ahead and update?
