    I'm looking forward to:

    -Faster loading for Media Players
    -Support for DVD-Drives and other things that needs USB 2.0 (Wii Linux?)
    -Boot WiiLinux from HD
    -etc...

    [​IMG] Oh, and remember, it's a (very good) Beta [​IMG].


    (And no, I'm not mentioning the USB-Loader...Nintendo would be totaly screwed with this... [​IMG]).

    Wow!
    Awesome...

    Hoepfully we see some apps based on the 2.0 speed soon...

    Omg, Nintendo can't beat Homebrew! (Even they have the original SDK etc and know their product better... or...? not...)

    So this installs as another cios?
    wouldn't it be better to integrate this with that 249 custom ios?

    this is great i bet nintendo wont even do this
     
  13. Nintendo had no need to do this. They wanted the ports only to be used for Mics, Keyboards, and stuff like that! I think they put limitations on it so WE couldn't hack it for backups and stuff like that. =] Nintendo thought of a lot ways to stop piracy but, everything is hackable.

    I'd have to say, Nintendo is one of the best companies to avoid easy hacking. =]

    Yeah but didn't marcan or bushing(the ones that made the homebrew chanel) say that the wii was the one with the less security out of the three consoles.I Agree that it wasnt't easy but lol easier than the ps3 and 360

    That is indeed interesting! Does this mean that any use of the USB ports will automatically become USB 2.0, or does the application need to be programmed specifically to make use of it?

    Relatively easy- just trick the Wii into thinking that the SD Card/USB Storage are one and the same. Couldn't take too long- I actually bet that a USB/SD app will be among the first released.

    Well, this is relatively easy in theory [​IMG] You'd have to somehow hack the system to mount usb when game tries to mount sd, or something like that [​IMG]
