    My friend has a new one with 3.4U firmware. How far are we, not on getting through 4.0, but through the new Wiis system?

    Try the recently released 4.0 downgrade method. It might work on it. It relies on a downgraded version of IOS 35 instead of IOS 16 to downgrade.

    But the problem isn't the firmware, it's that the system is keeping the wii from running any apps. The only ones that work are various wad managers.

    Actually, does this mean it runs apps using IOS35 instead of IOS16, and therefor might run the apps on the newest wii models? (LU64 serial number).

    Could I get a link to a topic about it, please?

    Are the new Wiis running a different hardware chipset to prevent the Twilight hack or something?

    you said your friend has 3.4, that's already been doable for a while now the only thing that isn't hacked yet is 4.0 just tell your friend to downgrade to 3.2 easy as that

    No, the twilight hack works, but there's something about it that seems to be keeping most apps from running off the homebrew channel. At least from my own experience, the only thing I could get running was the wad manager, of which I could load several IOS files from, but I couldn't get anything like an IOS downgrader to work.

    No, it's set for the internet, but what happens is it just plain boots to a black screen. No access to the programs at all to begin with.
