    Nintendo just released an update for the PAL Wii's. It's supposed to make the Wii support the WiiWare service.
    Just tested it for Trucha Signed games, Brawl (so double layer + error 001) and standard burned games and everything is still working perfect.

    Edit: Also tested online (just in case) and the hacked PAL freeloader iso. I don't own the original one so I can't test that one.

    Well it would be the most smartest to update as fastes as posiple as they could release a 3.3E that blocks traucha signer and then we would never get access to Wiiware.

    Just tryed the update but keeps giveing me an error msg on the updateing screen. lm using the wii browser now will check the error code in a min and update

    Edit:
    Up-to-date now can confirm scrubbed releases still work as do trucha signed ISO'S. The shop channel looks exactly the same as before with no noticeable changes.

    Wierd that europe got this the same time as the USA there has been no confirmation of a launch date yet and there is not a msg in the Wii inbox telling you to update like there normaly is, plus tested freeloader and its fine. I would test the twilight princes hack but i dont have zelda to hand as I did the Gc version.

    I got a mail last night from nintendo telling me about the update that is for wiiware and that if i have updated on/after 20th march then i am ok.

    soo i did the update . np at all. besides theoretically it was only a shopping channel update (although you can never be sure about what was included there that was not shopping channel related) [​IMG]

    Just updated. Nothing's changed and it's still 3.2 E.
    Just tried SSBB (patched with Trucha) and it works like a charm.
