    The system menu files of system menu's with versions below 4.3 are confirmed to be offline.

    The sad sad news is in the title folks. Confirmed by testing with NUSD and ModMii.

    Since several IOS's are down, and those are used as bases for cIOS's, we can't build cIOS's with ModMii or other tools.

    Sources: Myself, and ModMii Support Topic.

    EDIT: Lacius proved me wrong, guys. Sorry for the false alarm. The files are up again (?).

    Oh no, now I can't play all those fantastic online Wii games that I pirated.

    You should see the look of despair on my face.

    Offline meaning off the NUS or offline altogether? Because I just checked and my 4.2 Wii connects perfectly fine and both the MW3 Multiplayer mode and Internet Channel work, didn't bother to check any more games.

    I meant the Nintendo servers are no longer hosting such files. Internet is fine on all Wiis.

    EDIT: By such files, I mean the System Menus themselves and the IOS's used by them.

    I think it's the system files that are down, not actually any game's server.

    This is an ambiguous title then - it can mean either of those things and I suggest that you change it accordingly to for example "Nintendo no longer hosts System Menu < 4.3" or something like that.

    How to Edit: Click edit on the first post.
    How is it ambiguous: Wii's have System Menu's, don't they? By saying that System Menu's go offline, you might convey the message that they are stripped of the Online features via a System Menu check... which would be a big achievement for Nintendo - the pro's at security.
