    OK, this thread was not made for flaming I just want a simple answer to my question. What does the new Wii update do for the system? Is it a patch to stop backup loading or is it some other under the hood stuff to get our systems ready for a new channel. Also, if the update is safe, will it erase my custom IOS?

    No one knows yet. There was no change log accompanying it.

    It's a simple update to the photo channel, nothing to see here, move along.

    *disapointment* But it's strange:

    a) No Nintendo's email about this
    b) That's small update...very small
    c) nothing piracy-bad?
    d) Why not 3.4?

    PS. sjones900 my apologies.

    Nintendo has often pushed updates that did not move up the version number, that's because they only affect specific channels and nothing major.

    I personally think it's the third time I update my wii without the version changing.
    Piracy is left untouched. Unless of course there was an exploit in the photo channel that we missed (I doubt it).

    If it doesn't fix a security issue in the photo channel, it must introduce a new feature. Does anyone know what it is?

    I tried the new photochannel (1.0, not 1.1).
    I didn't see anything new on the channel except the wii gave me a blacscreen when I chose "wii menu" to quit. it did that only once, nothing to worry.

    edit :
    the update does update both version of photochannel.
    3 files for 1.0 and 7 files for 1.1

    maybe 1.0 has nothing new visually.

    A new channel was released by Nintendo in Japan today. Since this channel is about photos, too, the photo channel update might have to do with this.

    I meant the digicam print channel. When opening the link, doesn't your browser automatically scroll to that, like it is supposed to?
