There have been many Wii System Updates for the Wii. Listed here are the ones that in some way affect homebrew.
#REDIRECT [[Homebrew status]]
=== Updated all IOSes, and IOS51 ===
'''Released: 23rd October 2008'''
* This blocks '''new installations''' of anything fakesigned, that is, [[Homebrew Channel]], wads (legal and illegal), [[Starfall]], cIOS, anything that installs IOSes secretly like [[AnyRegion Changer]] or [[AnyTitle Deleter]], [[xyzzy]] and [http://hackmii.com/2008/08/libdi-and-the-dvdx-installer/ DVDX] (used for apps which have DVD support).
* '''If something is already installed then it isn't affected, like Homebrew Channel, etc.'''
* The homebrew developers are already planning how they could work against this.
* You currently need this update to access the [[Wii Shop Channel]].
* It updates all IOSes with the fakesigning bug, and adds IOS51.
=== [[System Menu 3.3]] & Updated IOS30, 31 ===
'''Released: 16th June 2008'''
This update blocked old versions of the [[Twilight Hack]]. The newest version contains a workaround, and retains compatibility with all Wii firmware versions. IOS30 and 31 have fixes for the [[Signing bug]] backported from [[IOS37]]. Since the System Menu uses IOS30, fake-signed discs have been blocked.
=== [[IOS37]] ===
'''Released: 21st March 2008'''
This iteration of IOS contained a fixed signature checking routine--a fix for the [[Signing bug]]. Although installed on many Wiis, this version of IOS has not been found active in any way that would disable any hacks.
=== Other Updates ===
Currently, no other updates, older or newer than these, affect homebrew.  See [[System Menu Versions]] for more info on other updates.
