Nintendo v 24c3, Round 2: The Nintendpire Strikes Back


The entire interwebs are in shock and denial as Nintendo finally tightens down on the fetal Wii homebrew scene by disabling the Twilight Hack via the Wii Menu Update 3.3. Early reports from Wii Fanboy commenters indicate that if you've already used the Twilight Hack to install the Homebrew channel, the channel will still function, but if you haven't installed it yet, you are screwed.

My googling indicates that formatting your Wii won't alter the firmware version. So if you're interested in Homebrew, and you were silly enough to allow Nintendo to auto-update it, an hour ago would be an excellent time to disable that feature. Auto-update, on any OS, is for nubs.

But calm is called for. It's just a matter of time until there's a new "in" to the system. If you've already been updated, it's not that big a deal because there's not much homebrew right now anyway. Relax, and 24c3 will come up with a new solution in a bit. Watch "Nintendo v 24c3, Round 1: A New Twilight" after the break. Note the applause. Guess whose side I'm on.
