[System Menu 4.2] Danger to Unmodded Wii’s?

lazyntd

Homebrew once again prevails, although if you haven’t yet updated to 4.2, It still isn’t recommended. While Homebrew Channel can now be installed on 4.2, some apps like Preloader lose functionality, since the newest version of Homebrew Channel seems to have J0DI as a new title ID; 4.2 deletes the orginial HAXX Homebrew Channel ID on every Reboot, so a new title ID was for the best. You can find out more on the hackmii blog, including how to install Homebrew on the latest 4.2 update [the HackMii Installer v0.5]. However, there seems to be a new Hacks.ini for use with preloader on 4.2 consoles which disables [HAXX,DVDX,RZDx] checks, so updating Homebrew to a new ID is not really required, although the newest HBC has some cool new features like Device hot-plugging.

File Patcher Updated to 3.4 (now 3.5)

Just thought I’d let everyone know. The new 3.4 File Patcher code (now 3.5 as of 7/15/09) has been posted [as an update] in the Starter Guide for custom music. Here’s a little note from Phantom Wings:

But in any case, I’ve posted the File Patch Code v3.4 in the code thread. Contrary to my initial prediction, it’s actually shorter than v3.2. I’m pretty sure this one will quell all of the most prominent bugs that are being reported out there.

I made sure to give it a test run by blasting through all the characters in the CSS four at a time simultaneously, (each had a texture) then selecting two PT’s, Samus, and Zelda, (holding R on Samus for good measure) and then selecting FD which has a texture and custom music track on. (all while there was a custom music track playing in the CSS) I also ran a test in training which involved spamming v-B with Zelda while holding a Smashball (textured FS) and having a custom music track playing. Both tests did not yield any freezes so I guess only time will tell the rest.

The only thing left to fix now is the SD security system that the Wii seems to employ.  -Phantom Wings
