    I purchased another Wii for my cousin for xmas. It was purchased around Oct 30th... would Nintendo have already installed the update that prevents
    homebrew? obviously i dont want to open the Wii because its a gift.

    Doubt it, that wii will have been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long, and before that it would of been sitting in a warehouse.

    But yeah, at some point I expect new Wiis would come pre-installed with the Oct 23 update.

    Itll take a few months for them to get to the shops - you will be ok for now

    Even if it did have the new 3.3 firmware on them, there's the new exploit for the homebrew channel and to re-downgrade.....Simple.
