    I'm about to do another softmod on a new Wii, and while checking the firmware version, I noticed I only have 188 blocks of space left. I haven't added any channels -- no WiiWare, etc. -- and there aren't that many saves on my system. This is a new black Wii. Did they change the memory capacity? According to the softmod guide I prefer to use, I need 350 block of mem. [​IMG]

    Have you check how big the saves are? I've had some pretty big saves.

    there's one channel that comes standard on new wii's that take up about 1000 blocks, delete it. I can't remember the name of the channel... but its obvious when u go to Wii Settings --> data management --> channels, there is only one title that big

    Wii+Internet channel. It's a video that teaches you how to get online with your I know.wii and it's just rediculous how big that channel is. If it's on your wii delete it. If not then I can't really say

    This is the first I've heard of Nintendo including that. Seems like really bad form of them to do that and not upgrade the flash memory of the system with the extra memory to make up for it.
