    My wii was semi-bricked, but my Recovery Dongle helped me out fortunately.

    Exclamation Wii System update--NEW

    Today 23ed October, Nintendo released a new firmware higher than 3.3

    I havn't installed it yet, so can't tell you the exact version.

    Don't know what the new firmware will bring either as the Nintendo website doesn't say anything yet.

    A glowing blue slot on your Wii this morning, October 23rd 2008, will indicate the fact that there's a new firmware update to be downloaded.

    The update relates to the Wii Shop, where you'll know notice that Wii Points have become Nintendo Points, to bring it in line with the launch of the Nintendo DSi and its new point system, that will allow users to download content onto their handheld. Points won't be transferable between the two consoles, but Nintendo obviously just wanted to avoid confusion by identically labelling the points scheme across both platforms.

    There's also a minor aesthetic change with some new icons added to make sure you don't inadvertently purchase items from the shop when you didn't mean to. How very gentlemanly of them.

    Included in the most recent titles for Nintendo's virtual console and WiiWare services are Tetris Party, a four player online version of Tetris. Incredible Maze, which is a maze game that sounds far from being 'incredible' and Gradius 2.

    Has anyone updated to this new F/W? I got up today and the Wii was blinking and got a message about the new F/W.

    I'm concerned since it says "Because unauthorized modifications to save files may impair game play or the Wii console, performing this update will also check for and automatically remove such save files". This says its an update for the Wii Shop Channel

    Running a d2Pro9 v4 and wondering if this is going to brick my console....?
