    Quick Answer: Don't do it. Look below.
    Current Info:
    -Will not brick
    -Deletes the Twilight Hack
    -Homebrew channel works
    -Pirated VC games work
    -Other-regioned games are unaffected
    -If you want homebrew on your wii and don't have it yet, do not install this update.
    -Wakinoko's save installer is unknown to force the twilight hack save over (Unconfirmed)
    -Trucha Bug is fixed, so no more trucha signed discs.
    -Will not effect any previously installed channels / VC saves what you have will still work after the update.
    -Freeloader does not work
    -Scrubbed games do work
    -Modchips (any and all) are unaffected

    based off information from this thread and http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=91009&st=60

    If there's any facts that have been confirmed that aren't listed, I'm trying to make as complete a list as possible so as long as I'm at my PC. Drop me a PM for me to add anything to the list. Send me shit, and i'll complain to a mod. (Sorry, guys)

    And a small note from myself: Nintendo isn't only blocking homebrew. What they're blocking is Twilight Hack which leads to WAD installer which leads to the piracy of their ancient games, otherwise known as VC games, that they still have copyright and intellectual property (otherwise known as IP) to. I don't think they're against homebrewers (or else GBAtemp would have been shut down long ago [blasphemy, yes i know]) but against the hundreds of dollars they could be making.


    Current News:
    ----Thanks Avenger-X! (sorry about the lack of caps)
    -This exploit was found in 6 - 8 hours after the update
    -Congrats to tmbinc and tehpola for finding a combination of two bugs in the code that Nintendo added that — when combined — allow us to fool their check into ignoring the TP hack.

    Please, while these skilled people are working to help the community, bombarding them with nonsense or hatemail or anything along those lines is strictly looked down upon. These people are spending days of their own free time to do this, and out of their hearts do they release this stuff, and/or release it to be easy to use for the rest of us so don't push them or expect them to be done by a certain time or persecute them if they couldn't meet a deadline they set for themselves.

    If true, this should block the Twilight Hack.. but if you already have the Homebrew channel.. can't do nothing [​IMG]

    Shit, shit shit shit.

    This isn't going to prevent the twilight hack is it?

    Hopefully it'll only remove the files during the update, and not block them. :\

    If the check is there, it is likely only for a select few games, if not only twilight princess. Didn't bushing say that the hack could be done on multiple games before?

    TESTED: Menu v. 3.3 will delete the twilight Hach. However, it will not affect the HBC if it was previously installed.

    People are trying it.
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=91009

    Also this:
    Here's what I'm getting:

    -Trucha bug is fixed. Trucha signed discs will not boot, and the wii will report an error on booting if such a disc is inserted.
    --This doesn't mean installed channels will fail. The signature check is done upon installation of wads, so you will likely be unable to install new hacked wads, but you will still be able to run the ones you currently have.

    -Twilight Hack save files are deleted. No one has tried reinstalling them yet from what I've seen, nor are we sure what the exact method of detection is. I would think it would be easily circumvented if they use standard techniques.

    Edit: Tested. Can't reinstall Twilight Hack.

    Do you know if also deletes saves from other regions (ie. JAP ones?)

    Also, the scrubbed games still work?

    Quick Question: Since the menu now checks for Trucha signed discs during booting, does this mean I can still play Brawl if I insert a DVD-9 to boot, then swap it out for the DVD-5 version? I'm wondering because I can only play my DVD-5 Brawl, the DVD-9 gets disc read error, but it can still start.

    Thanks in advance.

    To all those who have been saying Twilight Hack was impossible to detect or block:

    LOL
