    The Twilight hack is released and available for download!
    You can't do much with it except of seeing it works

    More info + download on Wiibrew.org:
    http://wiibrew.org/index.php?title=Twilight_Hack

    Update:

    I personally tested, it works(As expected)
    I have made a video ill upload on youtube soon
    It looks good more then a view lines of codes used if you ask me
    And it can detect SD Gecko and USB Gecko

    But i don't got it so nothing to test

    Nice, now I am going to get a wii, after this has been fully developed. Speaking of which, are there any soft mods for the wii yet?

    Nice! Whats this "ELF Loader" thing mentioned at the end of the video? Will we be able to play backup games with no mod chip? [IMG]

    Hmm, I don't have my Twilight princess disk with me at the moment. Could someone with a USA TP from the Wii's launch tell me what version of the disk they have? (unless the disks are different regardless...)

    I think that's basically what it is, yeah. A software mod...

    Well, from what I can gather the creators of the exploit have no interest in making a backup launcher. This is mainly for homebrew, although I'm sure someone will come up with someway to launch backups. I hope that doesn't happen though, mainly because if it does I think it will be an incentive for nintendo to patch this. They might let it slide if its just homebrew, and really, how hard is it to get a drive chip installed?

    Still, great news. I haven't had a chance to test it yet because I can't find my SD card [IMG]

    Hopefully this will result in a launcher to get rid of region locking.

    EDIT: ^ Beat me to it.

    No that's not >:(
    ELF is an executable file formats, it will help creating homebrews.
    Like it was said in this interview, this hack was NOT made to play backups without modchips and those who discovered it will never help to do it.
    If this hack doesn't allow to play backup, Nintendo will not bother with it.

    If you want to play backups, install a modchip, that's far enough easy.

    I bought mine less than a month after launch. The version is : RVL-RZDE-0A-0 USA (I presume it's the first) and I confirm it works.

    Yeah, 'RVL-RZDE-0A-0 USA' is the launch version. The 'RVL-RZDE-0A-2 USA' version fixes the game ending 'Sky Cannon Glitch', and perhaps this exploit, as well. Does anyone have the 'RVL-RZDE-0A-2 USA' version, and managed to get the save file to work on it?

    But it's still possible to make some kind of firmware replacement, right? Well, anyway, I want to play homebrew! [IMG] I was already planning to buy Zelda: Twilight Princess, but now I'll buy it for sure [IMG]

    Wii homebrew! [IMG]

    Hope they found a way soon to access the Wii memory and let us put homebrew on the channels or something.. having to play Zelda to run another program is kinda weird..

    I just tested this and it works on my PAL launch console with a launch copy of Twilight Princess [IMG]

    I'll be watching as this develops. But please keep everyone here posted on the news.

    I haven't messed around with any homebrews so far, even on DS. What's so good about them?

    It really depends on what you're after. My favourite piece of DS homebrew at the moment is DSpad (a client that connects to a joypad server on Linux machines) which I use as a wireless controller for all PC emulation.

    Some people love DS IRC clients (some of which I've heard are pretty good) but I haven't gotten around to trying the newer one.

    Just tested on my PAL Wii (launch day) with Zelda TP (RVL-RZDP-ITA on box, front disc RVL-RZDP-EUR, back disc RVL-RZDP-0A-0 JPN) and works fine. [IMG]
