3.4 was an update that contained several anti-homebrew measures, in addition to a few real changes.


November 17, 2008 (rev01)

  • USB keyboard support in Mii Channel
  • Split parental controls info into 3 different screens
  • Updated BC and MIOS, possibly for RVL-CPU-20 compatibility
  • Twilight Hack version 0.1beta1 cannot be copied to the console.
  • Nintendo's Network Policy has been rephrased.
  • Improved SD card read/write speed
  • Improved disc reading
  • System Menu now uses /shared2/sys/flags.dat, which has an unknown purpose
  • Fixed the signing bug in IOS254
    • It was previously thought that this was to overwrite PatchMii, as it was the last case of the signing bug (besides IOS16), and a real IOS254 had never been seen before.
    • IOS254v1 has since been discovered to have existed as early as June 2007, so IOS254 is unrelated to PatchMii
  • Stubbed IOS30
  • Added 3.3rev03 updates to IOS31 and IOS37, leaving all IOSes updated or stubbed except IOS16.

Message from Nintendo

North America

Wii Menu version 3.4 is now available for your Wii console. To update your Wii Menu to the latest version, please select the Update button at the bottom of the screen or select the System Update option in Wii System Settings.

With this update, Parental Controls have been enhanced, USB keyboard support is available for the Mii Channel, and system functions have been improved.

The Wii User Agreement, which includes the Wii Privacy Policy, has been updated. Because the updated agreement applies to you and your use of the Wii Network Service, you should view the updated version by clicking on the Wii icon located on the lower-left portion of the Wii Channel menu, selecting Wii Settings, accessing the Internet setting, and selecting User Agreements.

You may also view the updated Wii User Agreement online at http://support.nintendo.com

Because unauthorized modifications to save files may impair game play or the Wii console, updating to Wii Menu version 3.4 will also check for and automatically remove such save files.

**Please note: If you've updated your Wii Menu after 11/17/08, you may not need to update again.

Thank you for updating your Wii console!



(If you have received this notice before, please disregard the following information.)

Dear Customer,

Nintendo would like to inform you that a Wii Menu update is now available. Select the UPDATE button on the lower-right to update your Wii console. You can also update by selecting Wii SYSTEM UPDATE in the Wii Settings.


When the Wii Menu is updated, save data or program files that are detected as having been created by unauthorised means may be deleted from the Wii System Memory, as they may damage your console and/or cause interference with game play. Please note that Nintendo cannot guarantee that unlicensed software or accessories will continue to function with the Wii console after this or future updates to the Wii Menu.

Note: If you have already updated your Wii console since 18 November 2008, you do not need to update again.

(Als je dit bericht al eerder hebt ontvangen, kun je de onderstaande informatie negeren.)

Er is vanaf nu een bijgewerkte versie van het Wii-menu beschikbaar. Om je Wii-systeem bij te werken druk je op UPDATE rechts in het scherm, of ga je naar de Wii-instellingen en kies je WII-SYSTEEMSOFTWARE BIJWERKEN.


Als het Wii-menu wordt bijgewerkt, kunnen opgeslagen gegevens en programma's die zijn gecreëerd met ongeautoriseerde middelen, worden gewist uit het systeemgeheugen. Dit gebeurt omdat ze het systeem kunnen beschadigen en/of voor storingen kunnen zorgen tijdens het spelen. Houd er rekening mee dat Nintendo niet kan garanderen dat software en accesoires die zonder licentie zijn vervaardigd, zullen werken met het Wii-systeem nadat deze of toekomstige versies van het Wii-menu zijn geïnstalleerd

Opmerking: Als je je Wii-systeem na 18 november 2008 hebt bijgewerkt, hoef je het niet nog een keer bij te werken.
