    Those "anonymous usage statistics" are actually HBC submitting your bubble popping scores to a central leaderboard. [​IMG]

    it got said multiple times in #wiidev that the feature is already implemented but not documented.
    So my guess is custom skins or maybe a dvd player within the HBC but that wouldn't require documentation ... hmm?

    Well it would if you were going to be able to use it right ?? I mean you'd have to know what folders to make and what goes where right ?? I hadn't heard anything about the custom skins I just thought that up on my own, I don't even hang in irc at all. I might in the future though.

    On another note, the user custom skins would be way cool.

    The view changes when I press the 2 button on the Wiimote. I can't recall if it did this in the old version...

    Who cares?
    It was in the old version, it would change from list view to icon view.

    I think the backgrounds are going to change in August or August is going to trigger it. It must run on a time interval if we are going to find out soon (and under the assumption they won't tell us). If that is the case, the most probable time event would be next month.

    Excellent point!

    Hmmm... It's worked on all other consoles lol.


    If that's the case, I doubt it has anything to do with time at all [​IMG]

    That's his point. It's undocumented but implemented, meaning the special feature is already in HBC 1.07, but nobody will know how to access the feature until HackMii tells them.

    Engine room, learning
    My guess is also a Theme loader.
    The USBgecko doesn't log anything related to finding a folder named HBC_theme, or something like that ?

    Hmm...a surprise, eh?

    -if you have a cIOScorp'ed IOS 61 on your wii while installing, the HBC won't just be upside down and reversed anymore...your screen will be completely fumbled up to a paper plane
    -in the bootmii menu, if you shake the wiimote hard enough, it will synchronise with the wii
    -those anonymous statistics are indeed to keep track of which pirated wii games you've got on your hard disk. The Team Twiizer members can not only see which games you've got, but also initiate your wii to upload it to their private servers
    -on Halloween, a ghost image of the diseased DVDX will haunt the background (complete with the snapple bottle still in its head)
    -on april fools day, you won't be able to start the HBC. It'll give a message in the lines of "some serious stuff found on your console. HBC will now brick your wii to prevent further damage"
    -while navigating the HBC menu on friday the 13th, the wiimote will at random times suddenly boast a loud, screeching wail through the wiimote speakers ( [​IMG] )
