    ????????????? IS IT SAFE ????????????????

    Hi All,

    Nintendo channel came out today for PAL users.
    Is it safe to update, does it patch signer or send data off to Nintendo etc.
    I'm sure many PAL user want to find out before updating.

    Thanks in advanced [​IMG]

    Read the full message Nintendo sent you, and you will see the Update date. 20 March I think to remember it says; so no, Nintendo Channel ask to have 3.2 installed [​IMG]

    I installed this channel a few hours ago. When I use it in the section "game's recommandations", it list me all the games I have played 1 hour or more.
    The problem is that it also list uninstalled WADs that I played 1 hour or more...
    So Nintendo can easily detect which game you have played or not [​IMG]

    Thats not as big as another problem. You know that messages screen on the bottom right? Remember that shows ALL the games you have played since you turned your wii on the day you got it.

    Yes but now we know that Nintendo can view all the titles we have played (and the time of play) without looking one message by message :\

    After this notice i'm thinking one thing, Nintendo can fastly check our honesty with the pirated game with only a comparation of our purchases in the WiiShop.

    Yes and that's not really good for us...
    An elf for removing the time of playing should be fine now!

    If this really scares you, why don't you do a full format ?

    EDIT: SmileMan beats me on this one [​IMG]

    I don't know...
    Because when I use the Nintendo Channel it say that I have played Mario 64 one hour...
    But I never played it since my Wii has been formated (because I send it to the consummer service)...
    So maybe the play time can't be "remove" after format [​IMG]

    Ok, Nintendo is too clever for us. xD!
    Connect the Wii to Pc with a flash wire and erase it by hand?

    Gambia, The
    why do you want to connect with the Nintendo Channel?

    you can get all the infos of new games here and elsewhere.
    and you can get all DS "demos" elsewhere.

    There is no need for me to use this channel.

    If you read the terms and conditions of the Nintendo Channel, you can notice that the informations you send are totally anonymous. That means that Nintendo can see that you used Homebrew Channels, but they can't know who used them.

    I'm not using the Nintendo Channel too but this informations could be sent with the Shop Channel or while an online party...
    It's easy for Nintendo to get it but I don't think they will do it.
    They probably won't react about the Wii hacking while their consoles are in the top of the charts!

    You'll probably be fine, regardless of what Nintendo say.
