    We all knew it was gonna happen. The hackers will work around it, wait and see.

    Right now, the trick is not to update.

    At least not all was lost, I guess.

    I think Nintendo will turn a blind eye towards the Twilight Hack until it enables piracy.
    I don't think they will mind extra publicity from homebrew

    Freeloader still works after the update.

    I have an unmodded Wii, and my Freeloader still boots up my imports, even after the update.

    Maybe it might go as far as to what happened to the PS2. Modchip, via 32MB memory card.

    please read the above link carefully...

    this update WILL with a money back GUARANTEE mean that any future trucha
    signed discs will not work - the wii will not allow them to boot - (as things currently
    stand) the firmware will lay dormant (not really...but
    its the best way to word it for now) until a future game release -
    and i'm betting it'll be mario kart - activates it.

    anyone familiar with nintendo's endeavours to frustrate and whilst commendable for
    their business - stop piracy altogether will know that the big N will NEVER stop.
    They are most certainly aware of the systems currently unsecure software and
    this firmware update is further proof of their continuing strategies.

    It will i'm sure be an on going battle but anyone who thinks that Nintendo would
    not stop these breachs of their software and ultimately hardware - is kidding themselves.

    Enjoy the freeloader and trucha whilst it lasts. I myself will try and finish Mario in english
    on my jpn wii whilst i still can - so i would advise you play those modded games now while
    you still can (NMH with/out blood...Manhunt2-uncensored...etc...)

    I didn't install this last update. So I'll just wait it out. I'm sure mario kart will have the update which activates the truchablock. But I'll use freeloader to skip that update.

    Yep, it's gonna be Mario Kart. Don't the infectus guys have a way of saving the Wii's firmware?

    I don't think it's that easy. If Nintendo put some new libraries or functions into the new firmware, which mario kart NEEDS in order to run, skipping the update won't make the game work.

    So all of a sudden '#wiidev' crew seem to have aquired the ability to pull firmware code from the wii, decrypt and back engineer it so they can see the 'trucha' hole has been patched, but only when that code is called by a future firware.......

    pull the other one ffs

    If they can pull the files out and read them, can't they add the security hole in the files again yet trick the system into thinking it has the new files?

    all of the iso modifcation tools use the same bug, so ppf patches also won't work anymore when this new file kicks in

    i dont understand this?
    yesterday i modded an old wii with a wiikey, went online and did the update. then install wiikey 1.9 and then did the mario galaxy update. tested the wii with freeloader and Truncha Signer alterd games. all worked fine. so is this a hoax?

    Allegedly, the 'fix' is there, but is not active yet.
