Nintendo Flicks Homebrew Kill Switch In Wii Menu 4.3

Nintendo silently rolled out a Wii Menu update last night, once again taking a stab at crippling homebrew. Now at version 4.3, the latest system software revision scans for and deletes any files it deems as “unauthorized.” Homebrew, of course, falls under that umbrella.

Unspecified “behind the scenes enhancements” that allegedly improve system performance are also promised, reiterating what numerous updates over the past year have touted. Enticing, right? We jest. If history is any indication, there’s no doubt that hackers are devising a workaround. Regardless, if you value homebrew at all, then it may be wise to wait this one out.
