    - Clock Display
    - New colour scheme for the mail channel/message
    - Disk Channel - The Disk turns 180 left and right
    - Forcast Channel Icon (once you click on it)- Now displays the weather without having to enter the channel
    - Faster loading times when changing channels/leaving channels
    - Faster disk read speeds
    - Move contacts on Adress Book
    - News headlines in News Channel menu
    - Calendar no longer displays envelopes for the amount of time you played, only messages
    - Light bar goes on when disk is inserted or removed
    - Able to navigate Wii Settings with + and -
    - Scrolling through messages - New sound, and scrolling with B now displays an arrow similar to the Internet Channel

    Apparently, there is an update after the initial 3.0U that warns people about using modchips and that you will be disconnected from online and the Wii will brick.

    I am not taking that chance... so I will not update after 3.0U right now until it is confirmed false.

    EDIT:

    Updated with Wiikey, works fine. 3.0U.

    The little features are nifty.

    Do backups still work? Imports?

    Could this be a lie that they will use to scare people like me?

    Yes, but the processing of the data is done by the software, I think.

    EDIT: I see you users in that list on the bottom. REPLY!

    Be brave, do it!

    Again, the initial 3.0U update does NOT have this message (I didn't get it). It's the update after it.

    I SEE YOU! COME OUT!

    I can also confirm the initial 3.0U update didn't have this message on my NTSC 2.2U Modded with Wiikey.

    A do notice a big difference in disk loading times, at least like you said HipN, the processing of data.

    EDIT: Thanks warbird for the translation

    Translation of Image by Warbird:

    "Important: If the wii is modified, or using addons or software not supported by Nintendo, theres a posibility("fear") that the Wii will stop operating after the update. If you dont agree to updating, press the power button on the machine for more than 4 seconds [watermark covers some here, so im guessing a bit] and you will cut the power, and the update will be cancelled.
    PS: Its japanese, not chinese. Watermark is in chinese it seems tho."

    Well I'd test the second download if I could get it to...download. Maybe it's noticing something and cancelling the download?

    There's one update which brings the number to 3.0U. After this initial update, you can click update again which will bring up the "modded console warning screen". I didn't click it yet once the brick has been confirmed.

    Just updated to 3.0U..no warning on initial update, I didn't bother to check again. You guys worry entirely too much [​IMG] I bet every system gets the message and its just a scare tactic.

    I updated to 3.0u and I went ahead and clicked update after seeing the warning when going to System Update again. Nothing happens. It checks connection, says downloading update and then no updates found for your system you already have the lastest system software just like the PAL Mario Strikers did when you already had the 2.2 update and it checked for one.

    "backups" work (and while i'm at it, they aren't backups people, they're pirated, burnt games, get over yourselves. I also went to forecast, wii shop, etc and everything is fine. Played Big Brain and Guilty Gear.

    Believe it or not, I don't care.
