    Every time the update they try to get rid of HBC. Recent updates haven't been made to actually improve existing components or functionality of the Wii. They have been made to reduce functionality and keep hackers out. General rule, if you don't need to update, don't. [​IMG] If you have your Wii softmodded and have the ability to block updates, use it. It's been said there is not a game released that NEEDS the updated firmware to run.

    I have a feeling there'll be another update around the time Nintendo release one of their big titles. Pure speculation on my part.

    Totally. But it takes more time for them to release an update that blocks hack attempts than it takes to actuall hack it. Yes, every time it will get harder and harder to hack, but someone will eventually do it. For every security hole you close, two more open up.

    If the system was flawed from the beginning, it will always be flawed. Because every new system they make to try to block hack attempts HAS to be 100% compatible with the earlier systems.

    They can't stop you from unplugging it. I think that would make the power go off very quickly [​IMG] Nintendo can't force you to get an update. You can disable internet access, you can block disc updates.

    Their only attempt so far to 'force' you to update is with new releases of games. But it's still entirely up to you. You can either update so you can play the game, or you can choose not to update. But then you can't play the game. With a softmod there is already a way around that.

    you have to update certain stuff because games need it to play, but there will be ways around it. Even if nintendo did the best job in the world and redid the entire system menu that would be fine, i still have 800+ titles that i can enjoy on my 4.1 that i will enjoy until some new hack comes out. i think its correct that major releases will come with security measures. like galaxy 2, metroid other m, zelda. but there will be workarounds. they will have to redesign the system to block hackers, its already so wide open its too late.

    as for firmware, stop with the nonsense, a system menu version is not a firmware. NOT a firmware. its a system menu version number. if system menu is too ugly, use what i use sometimes, sysmenu. makes it look techy. and its one less letter. but anyway the wii is done. just like psp.

    Just let me analise this sentence: If each hole closed opens two more, it gets easier and easier to hack, not harder.
    Just grammatically. [​IMG]

    well actually it will get harder since the new holes are *harder* to hack but since theres fantastic hackers its kinda easy and takes low time. but i belive they will release 4.3 at end of january or starting feb or until they release SMG2 or MoM
