    Wii menu version 3.2 is out

    From Nintendo's site


    Wii Menu 3.2
    This update does not affect any prominently-used features or menus; however it does provide some behind the scenes updates that will improve system performance.

    the wii alerts you from the channel selection if the game disc inserted has an update on it


    That can be useful to know [​IMG]

    Does it affect the Zelda exploit?

    heh the first thing i thought when i read the topic title was "say goodbye to the zelda hack"

    back up games still work according to some people on a pt forum. i don't even think a firmware update can affect a drive chip, can it? no confirmation on zelda exploit though

    little more info here http://my.opera.com/Nplus/blog/2008/02/26/...-updated-to-3-2


    edit: just did the update and threw in no more heroes backup and it's working like normal. i didn't notice a difference to the disc channel maybe it's only for games that need to do an update that scroll the new thing across like the nplus article says.

    That's actually a feature that is helpful and useful for modchip owners. Good stuff.

    I second that.

    Really quick update though, and good idea to show clearly if the game inserted need an update.

    Though a couple of times my backup was bad burned when the game channel didn't show up at first..

    I'm glad that this doesn't affect the Twilight Hack... I guess I'll update my Wii soon.

    I'm going to assume this is the update that helps the Wii read Brawl a bit better. A group of people in Japan had Wiis that had difficulties reading the Brawl disc at first.

    Just to confirm: after updating the Twilight Hack still works (on an unmodded European Wii).
