    SO, the troll face means it is a hoax or joke? Lol, somebody on wiidev called sven a troll;-) Random when I mentioned sven's twitter directing somebody to #wiiudev, somebody called him a troll. FUNNY, maybe another hint about the diagram.

    Probably 'cause they're messing with us, and getting a chuckle out of releasing something vague.

    And every pixel matters, as might the days and how they relate...
    Ah never mind.

    My random guess is that the little question mark in the corner is Nintendo's private key, like the original Wii I think that was the only thing that was never discovered?

    This is of course complete guessing and saying that they have discovered how to shoot rainbows out of the Wii-U would be nearly as valid.

    I get part of it.
    Two teams, one being fail0verflow, were working on the Wii U separately, then met up at 29c3 or before that and... something Wii U related happened (as signified by the ?) But we already guessed that.
    I wish they would just be less cryptic about it.

    But doesn't the Wii U lack the ARM CPU? I've read that somewhere...
    And isn't your post speculation too?
    Plus, the Wii U CPU isn't even called Broadway is it? So it must be Wii Mode related if they really are referring to that. Which could only mean they gained Gamepad access in Wii mode, as all other aspects about it are hacked. Unless they gained Wii U NAND access from Wii mode...

    This is all just raising more questions :(

    You sure you're not the one with the troll face?
    Well, I'll bite. *loads up photoshop*

    I found it :P

    But the only thing this means is that they're being cryptic just to annoy us. It doesn't mean they didn't hack anything. But it could. :S

    Davebaol already noted that Comex told us where the A and B stand for:
    So the clue was really easy to guess, besides what the A and B actually stand for... until now.

    Also, I think the Trollface is just an 'easter egg', I mean when I do stuff I always have the urge to hide an 'easter egg' somewhere too. :P


    Just out of curiosity, and a bit off topic.. but why are keys Sha-1 hashes?
    I mean there are other choices out there, why did every (secured) console so far got us Sha-1 hashes?

    I know that it doesn't matter in terms of hacking and getting the keys, because otherwise... you know.. there sure is someone out there who has already hacked the Sha-1 encryption, secretly.
    And therefore it would be a stupid choice for security.
