    This was posted at Wiinewz a few hours ago, but since nobody has posted about it here yet.... thought I would, since it seems pretty interesting.

    I see a backup launcher channel in that wii, besides, why no sound in the video? Other than that, I don't belive this.

    As far as I saw, you still need to open your wii for this, you need to put electrical tape and some double tape on god knows what in the lector of your wii and I got totally lost on the usb part. So, this is no solution since the idea is not to open the wii. Id say this is fake till new REAL confirmation and obviously, Ill stay with gamma [​IMG]

    On the other hand, a new cIOS and an improved version of the loader with 6x or closer to that (I know Im dreaming, now that would be AWSOME news [​IMG][​IMG]

    lol, its no soldering but you still have to open the Wii to get it to work? In that case you might as well buy a modchip and wii-clip. It does the same thing as modchips do except you don't have to waste any discs.

    so, i went to the flatmii site and viewed both video tutorials. i want to know what the hell is that small wire coming off the back about? what is its function? i feel somebody pulling my leg. if this is real then, good luck. with all the trouble to install this, i would rather get a chip.

    This smells funny. "Hang the wire out the USB hole"?????? You should not have installation vid's and not have any real documentation on your site. I'll believe it when I see more conclusive proof.

    I assume the wire that sticks out ends with a mini usb port to connect to the pc. Then on the PC you upload the ISO into the chip or at least the chip would redirect the dvd commands and data into your pc and would load the data from there. I guess this would bypass all security methods?

    Edit: Something similar to PSP's USBHOSTFS. See http://www.google.com/search?q=psp+usbhostfs

    This was like a 30 or 24 gauge wire. It was tiny.

    Ok think about it this way guys.... what homebrew maker sets up such a "Flashy" website with BIG hints of cheezy fake-ness in it.

    1) unknown till now.
    2) they will aparently be "Selling" it
    3) the videos can be faked very easily

    This is a USB cable from your PC that replaces the Wii Drive. Easy as that. If you have a PC next to your Wii it might be handy, otherwise no. Unless...wireless.

    the drivers and application are not up yet... [​IMG] i was hoping to try to decompile the app (since it is .net) in order to prove this is a scam. it might be possible but i don't see how it is possible to override the ios without some kind of program overflow, although usb handling is done by ios. maybe it sends some bad data, crashes the ios usb handler and then causes it run some code to download a new ios and run it. sounds a little farfetched though. it could just be that it runs an in memory patching application but i dont know if that would even be possible under these circumstances.

    if this does work, it'll be more impressive than any console hack we've seen so far.

    Guys, they remove the Wii Drive yeah? You know that cable between the Wii Drive and the Wii?
    They replaced that cable with a USB cable. So: PC--USB---WiiDrivePlug---Wii. They just send the .iso as if it is a DVD in the Wii Drive. The USB cable is hanging out of the Wii. It is NOT connected to the USB plug of the Wii, it is not a SoftMod.
