    Let's hope this leads to a way to cold boot CFW without requiring you to buy a game.

    Now we need someone to use it so we can have coldboot cfw without the game or maybe you know something?

    Your mom's basement.
    Coldboot without chance of bricking on accident? Hopefully there's a way to switch from CBHC.

    It only works on a reboot, not on a coldboot! But hexkyz writes that it's maybe possible to change the vWii loader to exploit this bug and reboot the console into a CFW when B is held at the start. It's theoretically a coldboot haxchi alternative, yes, but it would take way longer (but at least you don't have to buy a game I guess).

    edit: clarified

    More like a CBHC's update.

    UBootMii incoming?

    In all seriousness, it would be sweet if a BootMii like payload could be inserted in the bootchain, basically making it brick proof.

    Hopefully CFW on boot without relying on an installed title.

    Well, you rely on the vWii channel, which is undeleteable unless you mess with ftpiiu, but I somehow concerned on how this could affect in WiiVC and HBL2HBC.
    @FIX94?

    Edit: Btw, boot1hax was alreally implemented onto HexFW
    https://github.com/hexkyz/hexFW/commit/f52f85f683dfcef0544f8ddb3643cef5cfa2ee86

    I think is just a matter to port the patch into existing CFW solutions like CBHC or/and Mocha :)

    This should be pointed on the OP.

    Despite the claim, I do not see a key anywhere in his post, only a hash. Has it been removed?

    You can dump it with his HexFW.

    Doesn't appear to be the case.

    Looks like boot1 was released, but boot1 key is already locked.
