    The newest official wii firmware, 3.3, now has the ability to disable homebrew.

    As it stands, it does not delete any homebrew, but it does block the Twilight Hack, and won't allow 'unauthorized' files to be copied.

    From the change log:
    For more info visit June16 update - WiiBrew

    So for now, if you want to continue using homebrew, you shouldn't update your wii firmware.

    Wait a few weeks and the hackers will figure something out.

    Bushing (one of the main devs behind the Twilight Hack/Homebrew Channel) already has a workaround, but I think he may be waiting until its truly needed to release it.

    You do not need a modded Wii to play around with homebrew ;) As long as you haven't updated to 3.3 you can use it.

    Also it's funny how the big N fixed the homebrew exploit, but didn't sort out a fix to stop mod-chips.

    Oh well, I haven't updated and probably wont until I have to, since no games require the update at the moment :)

    True and because this just happened all the games within 3 months will be fine. And the hackers will have something out in a few weeks to combat this.

    Is this the reason Free Loader won't work when trying to play Super Smash Bros Brawl? Nice one Nintendo, you've made a 17 year old boy very happy - NOT!

    your right and even if the next update(whenever that is,I dread to think) blocks the most current homebrew of all,hackers will still find a way round it.it's like a battle between nintendo and hackers.
