2.0 came out at launch and let us use the SD card slot or something fundamental like that. 3.0 added USB keyboard support, the clock, some message board changes, and other stuff.

Why not 3.3? 3.3 is still Twilight Hackable, which means it's region free (without any silly Datel disc).

Someone confirm that it won't fuck up the homebrew channel. Cutting off ways to play Tatsunoko vs Capcom would be sin.

Basically because I know it rips away the channel and CBF reinstalling it all. 3.2 works fine so might as well leave it - especially if they aren't adding anything new/

Guys if you have the Homebrew Channel etc don't update, because if they have killed it at least wait for someone else to check it on their Wii.

Those that had the homebrew channel installed might want to wait for others to test it first before updating I suppose.

Fuuuck I should have spent my other 1200 points the other day. I hope it doesn't mess with Homebrew Channel. I'd miss having ScummVM on Wii. That's all I have ever used it for. (With files from my original Sam n Max, DOTT, and Indy discs, FYI)

What does spending your 1200 point have to do with any of the other stuff?

3.0 was not to major, but here is what it did:

* Corrected some stability issues when using the LAN adapter and added AOSS networking support
* Certain modchips and other devices no longer work (such as the GameCube FreeLoader boot disc from Datel)
* Wii Shop Channel updated
* Altered the Wii Menu design to include a digital clock with the current time[11]
* The area around the Wii Message Board button will now flash when a new message arrives

* Wii Message Board:
o You're now able to rearrange the order of your Wii Friends in the address book
o You're now able to go into the Wii Friends registration screen by pressing the A Button on blank spot in the address book
o Envelope message icons will now appear on the calendar only on the dates when a message is received
o Your message sending history will now be displayed in Today's Accomplishments
o You can now scroll the message text by pressing the B button on the message screen[

Now 2.0 was a huge huge update, but you never would know, since it came out just before the system was launched (Early demo stations came with a disk to put 2.0 onto a system), but since pre-2.0 firmware systems were very uncommon, here is all wikipedia lists:

# Altered the Wii Menu design
# You can now write and read data on an SD card[11]
# Addition of country settings option and system update option in settings menu[11]
# You can now arrange all channels (except the Disc Channel) on the Wii menu by holding A and B at the same time[11]
# Ability to set parental controls to restrict online activities and only let particular rated games to be played

I FOUND IT!

In the japanese Wii Shop Channel theres a new button on each info page. if you click it shows info like what controllers it uses.

It used to be on the "main" Page but now they moved it to its own page (I have bad explaining)

Its on the US Shop to. But the botton is not visible just goto any content (I chose Nintendo Channel) and click just a little to the right of the picture that it shows for the content. You'll see it.

And I'm serious just try it yourself.

On Thursday, 10/23 starting at 7 AM, the Shopping Channel is undergoing maintenance longer than scheduled, and is currently not in service. We apologize for any inconvenience due to this maintenance.

With this maintenance, the following changes will be made.

Wii Points will soon be called Nintendo Points, and all references as such will be updated. All other functionality with Nintendo Points will remain the same.

The controller usage explanation screen will be updated.

The controller usage explanation screen will be separated from the purchase screen. Along with this, the user will be prompted to confirm that they have any necessary accessories before being able to press the Purchase button.

The design of the icons displayed will be updated.
