    Either I'm having a cache issue, or there's nothing new besides ChipD's awesome Wii mod.

    Actually I was reading this..but I think its an old post.. sorry!

    This isn’t the prettiest code I’ve ever written — it doesn’t have much of an interface, and I just threw this release together in a few minutes. However, it’s been exceedingly useful to me, and hopefully some of you will find it useful, too. I’ll quote the README here:

    This program will do the following, automatically:

    Download IOS11 from the Nintendo Update Server
    Patch it to remove the MEM2 protection (so the PPC can access all 64MB of it)
    Patch it to allow it to delete itself later using ES_DeleteTitle()
    Find an unused IOS slot (counting downward from IOS255)
    Install the hacked IOS11 there
    Reboot into the hacked IOS
    Copy the private key structure from the IOS address space into MEM1
    Reboot back into a sane IOS
    Delete the temporary, hacked IOS
    Display the keys on screen
    Try to write them to a file on the SD card — keys.txt
    Pause for 60 seconds to allow you to copy the keys down using pen and paper,if necessary
    I wrote this a week or two after I killed a Wii trying to reproduce tmbinc’s original Tweezer Hack. May it rest in peace.

    The first version of this code just used a patched version of IOS, which was an ugly hack. It’s still an ugly hack, but at least it no longer contains copyrighted code. You should only really need to run it once on any given Wii, but it should be safe to run as much as you want. If nothing else, it demonstrates the kinds of ways you can use PatchMii_core to do something useful (as opposed to just running it and then packaging the result up as cIOS).

    that isnt hacked IOS, its to retreave your wiis personal keys, it doesnt keep this IOS, if u read the patch was to read al 64mb of memory so that you can dump your keys to a txt file, nothing more is to come of THIS version of the patched IOS, that and its old news

    What are the chances of nobody replying to this thread in the hopes it's misleading (and false) topic get buried. The more responses, the more people think it's true.

    Lets all try to stop spreading false info and speculation, please
