    [EDIT] Seems a more informative thread is here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=145505&st=0
    So go there to have your questions answered!

    I have done some resteps, making it easier to understand [​IMG]
    Several ppl already tested (myself included), it will not brick your wii, it just generates a "report.txt" that you have to mail back to comex
    (My Wii is 4.0E)

    Nope.

    Anyway, let's hope it does come to a new exploit for 4.0 Owners, who screwed up while updating and don't have HBC anymore [​IMG]

    As my Wii had a heating issue, Nintendo sent me back a brand new Wii on 4.0, so I'm screwed until comex comes in and saves my skin. I'm grateful for the time he's putting in [​IMG]

    i click on the first link and got this

    So, I post in some IRC channels about report.txt and go on vacation-- check my email today-- and there are like 150 new mails in my inbox with reports.txt.
    Uh, wow.

    Thanks everyone, especially brakken and whoever reposted the request elsewhere, and including everyone who took the time to run the test for me.

    You can take down the request now, I have enough [​IMG]

    more info forthcoming.


    Any idea when thta was changed over i.e which date it was posted when he said Today?

    Looking forward to this as im 1 of the unfortunate ones who uypdated to 4.0 without installing hbc first [​IMG]
