    So this still allows only for the playing of home brew yes? Not backups of games?

    HBC has never done anything but load homebrew. And it never will (it certainly won't become a warez loader).

    Hopefully leads to a Wii U hack.

    I will now add yet another "that was quick" to this thread.

    Nice work guys.
    I haven't clicked on the link yet but anyone know if it works or has any benefits for a normal Wii?

    I can't wait to see what happens when the WiiU's Wii NAND partition is "bricked". XD
    Go find out Guinea pigs! :lol:

    Bet Nintsy will be quick to patch this :P (btw--Is it true what I heard that Wii Mode is locked if the WiiU sees an update? Forgot where I saw that)

    It can load them, but they will not function on the WiiU, no.
    From what I gathered of my reading of that stuff, it seems like it says in the WiiU manual or something that they can do that, but there's no evidence that they have the code in place to actually do so AFAIK. But I may have misunderstood that.

    how and when will Nintendo responded to this

    make the wiiU deleted the channel when wiiMode boots (as well as other homebrew)

    block the games the have the run exploit

    disable SD card support when games run form discs

    auto delete file when you put the sd card in (even in wii mode)

    Thanks for clarifying, what about wad managers?
    For now we got some good emulators, satisfying enough.

    Both the installer and the HBC seem to be very buggy, at least on the Wii. First it told me I could only install Bootmii as IOS (which isn't true), then only offered to install it as boot2. After updating the HBC, I went back to find that about 3/4 of my icons would not show up.

    No, they won't work either. Anything involving c(rap)IOS or other patched IOS will not work.
    Have you reported your issues somewhere that TT will actually see it? (e.g. HackMii blog, the bug tracker: http://bugs.hackmii.com/index.php?project=6 [although I dunno if they still look at that or not] etc.) They probably won't see it here.

    A little reading up and I see this installs BootMii 1.5 on a normal Wii the HBC is at 1.1.1 but other than a new Title ID and a new install method w/IOS exploit, I don't see a change log for either of these anywhere?

    Anyone know more details?

    Also, good job tueidj for the exploit. Just in case, I'm hoping the one used by Crediar is still unused and can be a backup if Ninty finds this one, too. Between this and adding Wiimote support for Devo, it's no wonder tueidj has been so hard to find lately. He's been pretty busy.

    Just because he hasn't been posting here doesn't mean he's been hard to find.

    Okay, I guess I didn't actually LOOK for him and I know he was active as a mod on WiiBrew ... but still noticeably busy.
