    [​IMG] Wii System Update warning
    Trucha exploit possibly patched
    [​IMG]
    It has been reported that a new Wii System Update is available that combats the current Trucha exploit, rendering modified games unplayable. For this reason we currently recommend you NOT UPDATE your Wii if prompted.

    This is not yet confirmed reliably so stay tuned for more information, or join in the discussion in the following thread.

    Just warned the Son, He's playing Trucha'd brawl right now on our PAL Wii.
    Might turn off the Wii's net connection for a while just to be safe.

    Glad I updated between the Wiiware update and this one. I'm in the "just right" zone, right before dangerous update, right after good update. [​IMG]

    Update as early as possible, I always say. [​IMG] Now I get Wiiware and Trucha.

    I was like "i'll apply that latest update on my wii later today, just in case" and now i see these threads about new update which kills everything. Really fun.

    yeah that's exactly what i was thinking. I updated because I expected nintendo to fix the bugs in a later update

    the new wii freeloader still works atm.
    so don't install any online updates and when a disc contains an update, use freeloader to skip it.
    that should work while we wait for custom firmwares [​IMG]

    I'm on 3.2E, plus I had both updates that didn't change the version number, and the update from US Brawl ... I'm on a PAL machine ... and my Freeloader still works fine.

    Wait...
    So you're saying you have the new update?
    And the freeloader still works?

    Of course not...

    Seriously... Nintendo aren't that stupid, people would see it and pull the plug.
