    I've looked at this page but I can't seem to find where it started auto-updating (and bricking system until updated).

    Version 3.0 says:

    Does that mean that this is when it starts to force updates? Or that this is just when you have Standby mode enabled?


    However, 3.1.0 says this:



    The reason I ask is because I may be getting a Wii U on Black Friday ( http://wiiudaily.com/2014/11/best-b...-on-black-friday-15-off-nintendo-eshop-cards/ ), but would want to keep it open for Wii U homebrew.

    Any idea what firmware version the SM3DW bundle would come with?
