So it would seem and I must say thats kinda stupid. So it just went straight to the update and didnt ask for you to enter a pin number?
It makes sense actually. Nintendo wouldn't want any Wiis missing out on their glorious updates if someone were to forget their pin codes. Still would have bene very handy for us to have an update lockout.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
I wonder if on an older system menu that worked and they changed it in a newer one?
Unfortunately yes. I just double checked all the parental controls, rebooted and tried to go into the Wii System Update again (from top left icon in the 4.1E Wii menu). Without ever asking for a pin it will give you the notice "In order to use this software, you must perform a Wii system update. Select OK to begin the update" followed by "Important: If your Wii console has any unauthorised modifcation, this update may detect and remove unauthorised content causing the immediate or delayed inoperability of your console. Failture to accept this update may also render this and future games unplayable. If you do not wish to accept this update, you can cancel it by hodlign down the POWER Button for 4 seconds". If you select "I Accept" (only option other than power down) it will automatically start downloading/updating.
inoperability...how stupid is that? this is nintendo saying " you just gave us money for hardware, now if you installed something we don't like we are gonna break it!"
screw that, this is the USA I got freedom and that sounds like infringing on rights...i guess you can choose not to update but damn this crap pisses me off sometimes...
you can't just decide to make an update that will break someone's system if they update and have a mod, even if you suspect its for illegal activity and especially if someone is paying decent money for your hardware
if I know how to program and make something for some hardware i just purchased i have the right to do so. they need to make their updates work for everyone regardless of what they have done to their system
