    I've been testing out some hacking things today with Wii U Via the Smash Stack exploit.

    I can get the HBC installer to come up but it states there aren't any vulnerable IOS.

    I've tried to get the trucha bug on the console with various apps to no avail.

    You CAN run .dol files with Multi Mod Manager.

    Wads won't install as there is no trucha bug to fake sign them, I spose.

    The Wii U will freeze at times, which will force you to pull the power plug to reboot. This typically happens after trying to run the smash stack twice in one sitting, no matter how long its been it seems.

    The newest WiiFlow hung at the loading screen then threw up an error booting me back to the menu.

    Coverfloader black screened.

    So there ya have it.


    **UPDATE**

    I've tried to install various ios via DOP-Mii, and they all fail to install. I have NOT tried to install 20 that was suggested in this thread, but I'd imagine it would fail as well.

    I haven't tested Riivolution, but if someone gives me a direct tutorial / files needed for a popular Smash Bros Brawl one I'd do it.

    I have tried Casper and it hangs on a screen that is black with text that states the ios version.

    Could you please try Riivolution? And/or Casper, they use the same IOS exploit. But Riivolution should be easier to setup (although it may also be pickier about which specific revision of the IOS it will run on). [Try Riivolution first if you can, if it gives an error maybe try Casper]

    Do emulators work? That'd be pretty sweet.

    Emulators should work find, but you will have to run Stack Smash every time you want to run something.
    Somebody should try to install Riivolution though as it uses an IOS exploit that is different from the one used by the HBC (from what I understand).

    No reset button means no navigating in the BootMii GUI, so no. (And that's assuming the IOS exploit Casper uses still works).

    An idea that was posted in another thread was the mini version of the HackMii Installer (which can be loaded via BootMii). If Casper does indeed work, it should be possible to run the mini version of HackMii Installer (boot_mini.elf in the download package) by renaming it to ppcboot.elf and replacing the BootMii ppcboot.elf with it.

    Another option that has just come to me is that cBoot2 thing. I never used it, but as I understand it, it would load apps as if they were running on a patched IOS or something along those lines. If it works via Casper, that could be another attack vector.

    Again, both these ideas depend on Casper working. And if it does, the first option (boot_mini.elf) is much better for a bunch of reasons, but I felt I'd mention the other idea I had as well.

    I made a sneek nand using the AW wizard in modmii. Straight up sneek (no DI). It will launch with indiana pwns exploit. I get to the casper loading screen and it says:

    casper v0.2
    by giantpune
    Mar 23 2012 05:24:21

    If you paid money for this program you were scammed

    Path: "sd:/bootmii_ios.bin"
    IOS flags 254 v65281

    It has been sitting on this same screen for over 5 minutes. I have never used casper so I am not sure of the initial loading times but I think it is a no go at least for me.

    Damnit. I wish I had a wii U so I could dump the NAND chip on it and start working my magic without fear of fucking things up.
    HorreC and plasma dragon007 like this.

    that is probably because there are no vulnerable IOS's on which it can run. but you started it with indiana pwns (so they didn't even fix the save game exploits....)

    Has anyone used casper before? Does this thing take a while to boot. I have just used Uneek and it can sometimes take awhile to start up on the first boot. I think this isnt going to work but before I hit the sack I just wanted some confirmation.

    I don't think it will work, no. I think the delay would come after that stage, with the screen black. I did run Casper once, but I can't really remember exactly what happened.

    Might you please try to start DopMii to install the oldest IOS20 (v12) using IOS80 and then try to install a forwarder Channel or cIOS using the old IOS20v12 (download it from NUS using Nus downloader) which has the natural Trucha Bug inside? I've read that on the WiiU there is no stubbed IOS20.

    Well, why not? The System menu is still on 4.3. If only the WiiU checks on exploits, it won't be deleted if Sd is only inserted in the vWii-menu.

    Backup loaders aren't illegal if you own the games in question (which I do).

    Nintendo can't say what we can do or can't do with our WiiU. If we don't do something illegal (downloading games maybe) we are allowed to mod our wii and to use backup loaders, even if Nintendo says we aren't.
