There have been many Wii System Updates for the Wii. Listed here are the ones that in some way affect homebrew.


Updates

IOS51 & Updated all IOSes except IOS30, IOS31 and IOS37 (these were already updated, see below)

Released: 23rd October 2008

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.
