    it could be used so when nintendo activates IOS 37, you could keep on running homebrew and install wads [​IMG]

    I hope not, cause if the support (if it ever comes out commercial) will be as bad as the UP chip ppl will get feeled ripped off

    UP is useless, just cause there is no support for a descent uptodate firmware replacment for the UP, cause there's no support anymore for it

    Yeah, will be very useful. Though I think if Nintendo activates IOS37 in an important update, it would probably be better if we created custom firmware that looks like the new firmware to Nintendo, but does not have the IOS37 thingy. Basically a patched firmware without the fix in it.
    Awesome progress though! Seems to be more evidence Bushing is still tampering with the firmware, which is great, custom firmware would put the putty straight into our hands (metaphorically [​IMG] ).

    EDIT:
    Actually just watched the video lol, and I'm confused. Is there already a dual NAND in the Wii? Or did he install another. Wait, I've confused myself, what does this actually mean?

    The idea, not the implementation.

    I'm sure it does really lower it, why would he make something that just changes the number in the settings? that'd be useless.

    Bushing isn't a liar. If he says he downgraded the Wii, then he downgraded it. Why would he lie about something like that? [​IMG] And anyone who thinks this is useless didn't own a PSP back when homebrew started. The basic Idea behind the custom firmware is that we can continue to use the exploits of old firmwares, while using the features of new firmwares. You must revert the unit to an older firmware to be able to use the exploits, then add just the code of the new implemented features you want without having to install the entire firmware.
