    Is indeed the common key (you know what key) illegal to show it to the public (in any form: ascii hex codes, hex)?

    Well i have noticed this for as long as the common key was leaked to the internet and the first post here in gbatemp were edited-deleted without the common key. But at bushing's blog is there in common view in ascii hex codes hackmii - keys-keys-keys and this site has nothing in it that is breaking the copyright laws. And thats why i'm asking this after so long, to clarify it..

    So you LINK to it? Not a good idea, you might want to edit that.

    I thought this from the very start of writing my reply with the link but i don't think that sharing the common key breaks any copyright (or sth) law..
    And if i want to edit this, i must also edit my reference to hackmii which is my argument about "common key is not illegal to share".

    Are there different common-key files, or is there just the one?

    There is only one, hence the name.
    Well actually, Korean Wii's have a different one. But that's not important.

    There's a version of Wii Scrubber available in the downloads section that comes with a tool for generating the common key. I think it's the version before the final version.
