There have been many Wii System Updates for the Wii. Listed here are the ones that in some way affect homebrew.
#REDIRECT [[Homebrew status]]
=== [[IOS51]] & Updated all [[IOS]]es except [[IOS30]], [[IOS31]] and [[IOS37]] (these were already updated, see below) ===
'''Released: 23rd October 2008'''
* This blocks '''new installations''' of anything fakesigned, that is, [[Homebrew Channel]] (both new installs and updates), unofficial wads (legal and illegal), [[Starfall]], cIOS, [[BootMii]], 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). This list is not exhaustive, but please add to it if you think of anything else.
* This also blocks access to /dev/flash in all [[IOS]]es but [[IOS30]], [[IOS31]] and [[IOS37]].  This means raw nand dumping utilities, for example [[Yet Another Wii NAND Dumper]], no longer work, since by default homebrew uses [[IOS35]]
* '''If something is already installed then it isn't affected, like [[Homebrew Channel]], etc.'''
* The homebrew developers are already planning how to work around this update.
* You currently need this update to access the [[Wii Shop Channel]].
* If you already have the [[Homebrew Channel]] and [http://hackmii.com/2008/08/libdi-and-the-dvdx-installer/ DVDX], and aren't planning to install anything big that will affect your Wii, then you are most likely unaffected. Normal everyday apps such as [[Homebrew Browser]] are completely unaffected as long as you already have the [[Homebrew Channel]].
* It updates all [[IOS]]es with the fakesigning bug, and adds [[IOS51]].
=== [[System Menu 3.3]] & Updated [[IOS30]] and [[IOS31]] ===
'''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 [[IOS31]] 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, [[IOS37]] 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.
