    WiiSpeak Channel launches tomorrow and i was wondering if it is going to be safe to download.

    will the channel download contain a firmware update or anything else that could mess up how HomeBrew functions?

    who will be brave enough to test it?

    We already have the WiiSpeak Channel.

    There was a WAD of it forever ago.

    It's fine.

    is the wad version actually functional at this time? can you send voice messages to people? if the channel doesn't launch until tomorrow i didn't think there would be servers in place or anything like that?

    Why do people ask these questions? We do not live in futureland.

    Of course there could be an update, but why would we know any more than you do?

    i guess i jumped the gun a little bit but at least now there is already a topic about it.

    AshuraZro, some people on these forums find out things way sooner than the general public. i thought it was worth a shot to ask since the launch is tomorrow.

    noobwarrior, i know i can choose not to update but the Channel might require it to work properly.

    noobwarrior, it's all good.

    pro viruz, you downloaded the actual (not WAD) working channel (you can send voice messages and chat) and there was no update to the firmware or anything?

    has anyone else downloaded it?

    I JUST updated it.

    Everything seems to be working fine.

    I didn't install it using a wad or anything, I installed it officially.

    this is exactly what i am interested in. sounds like it doesn't contain an update.
    have you messed around with the HBC at all since you installed WiiSpeak Channel?

    thanks for the reply.

    Yes, I've tried the HBC.

    Boots up fine, I even used a program on it to extract a gamesave.
