    meh, i hacked together this app in about 25 minutes. it essentially turns the wii off to Red (Standby), so WiiConnect24 isn't running, and so ninty (if they ever chose to) couldn't update the System Menu without us knowing.

    Isn't it easier to go to the options and disable the standby connection? Or use that one priiloader hack that forces the console to fully shut off even with WC24 enabled?

    Also, from what I remember, the console isn't even capable of updating by itself. I thought we got over these autoupdate scares 2 years ago.

    i just figured with 5.0 coming out any day, it would be somewhat useful if you were concerned about it.

    Seems like the obvious thing to me - why the need for a third party app to do what is already included in the system menu?

    that place
    Disabling the standby connection also disables the News Channel, Weather Channel, Nintendo Channel, Shop Channel, etc.
    If you use this program, it disables the standby connection while allowing access to those channels.

    Since when? I know 100% for a fact that shop chan works fine with standby connection disabled. AFAIK the news (& possibly weather) is the only channel that actually requires standby connection and WC24 to be enabled.

    And who uses those?

    Wow, something that is only good for lazy people. >.>
    I thought there was an OPTION in that turns wiiconnect24 off...

    Good job making the thing work, but it was sort of unnecessary.

    Out of curiosity, what does this program do that disables WC24?
