    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
    -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.
    -Calendar in Message Board no longer shows "Today's Accomplishment" only days as having messages.

    Wii Shop Channel Overhauled:

    -New Welcome screen detailing 4 Recommended Titles and the points they cost (gone is the title screen bar that had linkable 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)

    HA HA, Nintendo Owned, the update does not affect modified consoles.
    I didn't even get a message about modified consoles on mine, LOL

    I didn't think it would affect chips because it is a Nintendo Firmware update and the chip is not linked to the Nintendo firmware in any way.

    This update is currently safe to update with a chip installed

    All the warning on that screenshot above says is:

    "If your Wii console has an unauthorized technical modification, this upgrade could cause inoperability of your console"

    Its says "could cause" not "will cause", mine is fine and according to a chip developers website I visit most of the members on their have updated fine too.

    Nintendo will have to come up with something better than that, hackers are always 1 step ahead, look at Sony's feeble attempts to stop piracy on the PSP with their updates and it still don't prevent piracy. LOL

    I won't tell those of you with a modded Wii to update, that is up to you. I am just saying it was fine on mine and the other members on another forum I speak to and thats it.

    That's some good stuff. I wonder if my Wii will be glowing blue when I go into my living room.
