Cool, a Wii update at last. The USB keyboard thing should come in useful for going on internet, my PC is playing up and going on the net at work I have to keep looking round my shoulder to see if the boss is around. Like just now, typing this.

That's if you update a PAL console with NTSC firmware or the other way around. Use the right update for your region and it updates just like a retail unit.

Phreddy you're fast , sorta.

Yea it will really open up the internet browser. I just hope a future update lets us use BT keyboards since I plan on getting a new one of those soon. An MMO would be good at this point.

Yeh I heard if you have a mod chip, it should still update fine (even though you get a message warning you before you update). Heard there were some shopping channel updates and things too.

 
This is a signature. Have this one on me.

from NG-

With the Wii's Shop Channel undergoing maintenance, a series of updates came up to accompany it. Most users will be able to make 2-3 updates with one of them bumping the firmware to 3.0. Here are the known changes so far:

Channels:
-Digital Clock added to the Wii Menu right under the channel bar
-Forecast Channel now displays the current condition (cloudy, raining, etc.) directly in the Wii Menu in the Forecast Channel box
-News Channel can now show 2 scrolling headlines at a time in the Wii Menu, 3 when you click on the button (supposedly this requires occasional downloading of the headlines to keep the ticker updated)
-Message Board now has the "Today's Accomplishments" message as a white message which allows it to stand out from other messages
-Address Book entries can now be shifted around using A+B (supposed to be a launch feature) but only to empty spaces. Not too convenient.
-Calendar in Message Board no longer shows "Today's Accomplishment" only days as having messages
-Scrolling messages in the Message Board now uses a different sound

Wii Shop Channel Overhauled (Visual aesthetic is the same, changes made to organization and browsing methods mostly)
-New Welcome screen detailing 4 Recommended Titles and the points they cost (gone is the title screen bar that had linkable games). The title bar can be clicked on to bring up a list of 20 recommended games.
-Titles You've Downloaded was moved to the main shop menu
-New ways to browse
-Popular Titles (2 pages of 10 and includes launch games so not only based on recent info)
-Newest Additions remains the same
-Search for a title which can use partial names
-Search by Category
-System shows the different systems and how many titles have been released under each
-Publisher showing different publishers and amount of titles released (Nice logos!)
-Genre (different genres listed and amount of titles under each)

Settings
-Warning added pre-system update detailing that technically modified consoles may cease to function upon being updated. Also the only way to not accept an update is to power down the console by holding the button for 4 seconds (the user can't back out of hitting I Accept w/o powering down)

Previous updates would brick your Wii if it was the wrong region too. The difference is that Nintendo added a warning. I doubt that Nintendo would intentionally put out an update bricking modified consoles. The publicity backlash if it would misfire and affect legit consoles would be too big.

The keyboard thing doesn't work for the internet browser yet, I think it's an update Opera that's needed now.

Is it just me, or is that the place a keyboard might actually be useful?

This update also prevents the Freeloader from working if you import NTSC Gamecube games.

It's nice to see the shopping channel getting a much-needed facelift, but this update isn't anything to get super excited about, IMO :/

When are Nintendo going to start using DS-Wii connectivity? I'd love it if they added a channel for "DS Pictionary". My friends and I play it all the time. Someone suggests a category and everyone else has to draw it in Pictochat. Points awarded for speed, accuracy and nonsense factor. If it were on the Wii, it could choose the topic, display the results on the TV and add a voting system from the DS.

Great job Nintendo! The Freeloader only booted original imports, now people wanting to play GC imports on their Wiis will have to get a chip which will play pirate copies as well.

I plan to acquire lots of games and that so give me your Wii numberthing if you're a cool nigger like PHIZZY!
