    I've got a WebKit bug that crashes on the new system 5.5.2 and was wondering what dev's are active in this scene still that can analyze such a bug to see if it's exploitable or not? I've already sent MN1 a message, not sure if he is even still active in the Wii U scene. I've also already sent a message to the guy with the devkit unit, not sure if it's PC to say his name. It's been a very long time since I've seen those two around here though. I don't know what other dev's I can contact so I thought I would just drop this here. Contact me if you are capable or can get it in the right hands. Thanks!

    A crash on its own doesn't mean there's an exploit to be found.Frankly just telling devs you got the browser to crash is going to annoy them more than help them

    I obviously know a crash isn't an exploit that why I asked who is still active that is capable of even look into it. It does help because it's a start. Thanks for your contribution of nothing.

    If the 3DS Browser crashes---oh wait this is the Wii U forum.

    Ok assholes. I actually wrote a python script that parses a WebKit svn changelog and finds restricted bugs and their commit log. It builds a database of them and I go through the commits looking for layout test examples that crash the WiiU browser. I've sent bug reports to devs for years and they've always been appreciative of them. I just don't know who to contact anymore because the devs I used to talk to aren't around here anymore. So please go away if you can't tell me who has the ability to analyze bugs these days.

    The "Ok assholes." thing made me laugh out loud. But, I'm just fucking with you. There's always the GBATemp Discord where you can ask this questions as well. Someone will most likely give you the link anyways but if you want a faster response, you can check there as well.

    But, seriously, you can't just put in a title of browser crashes in this forum because people are going to legit laugh at you due to all of the similar post titles in the 3DS scene.

    Well I don't follow the 3ds scene nor am I on discord so... Here's a link to the thread I contributed more than two and a half years ago that I use to find all my bugs http://gbatemp.net/threads/restricted-webkit-bug-finder.378725/ but whatever... No wonder so many good devs left the temp. People are ignorant instead of helping. I was asking to get it in the right hands, nothing more. I will just ask to have this closed then.

    @dojafoja: You should legit just ignore/don't respond to posts akin to the ones @LongDongSilver has made which doesn't answer your question at all.
    May I suggest just posting the bug in your OP and letting the wider audience take a gander rather than keeping it closed-loop?
    If not, I'm sure someone will come along and answer your actual question in an appropriate manner. Keep 'life elevated'!

    I would say a majority of the good wii u devs are no longer working on the wii u. They all either disappeared or jumped into the switch. Would love to see a new browser exploit for wii u, but from what I can tell there aren't many active devs for wii u. The switch is the new toy to play with so I'm not surprised that everyone gravitated towards it.

    I used to report these bugs to MarioNumber1, Hykem, Mathew, etc years ago. They were always appreciative but nowadays......they're gone. Idk I I was just trying to help. I've contributed to this scene more than once too. I wasn't trying to start a hypetrain.

    I got a reply from a proper dev via pm and trust me they are more than capable at analyzing this. I asked for this to be closed already so....
