The Wii Linux Team have released a new version of the Kernel for Wii Linux based distributions. It now features interactivity with the AVE-RVL audio/video encoder and also allows you to return to the Homebrew Channel.

Release notes:

We are back (non morituri) with a new kernel based on the recently published version 2.6.29. The new release includes some interesting features, specially on the video side: support for AVE-RVL (the audio/video encoder in the Nintendo Wii), enhanced video mode autodetection and forcing, honoring of video mode timings (fbset and friends will work now), default boot video mode with overscan compensation (for those using tellys). Oh, and don’t miss the new quick reboot into “The Homebrew Channel” feature. Happy hacking!
