    This is an April fool 2017 hoax homebrew.
    It temporarily replaces your menu icons into Reggie until a reboot.

    Wii U boot0 race attacker

    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or the current economic crisis caused by you following these directions. YOU are choosing to run this program on your Wii U, and if you point your finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.*

    -- Introduction --
    Basing on the 33C3 work on Wii U we worked on a way to race attack the boot0.
    This works by using the IOSU exploit to run a custom kernel on the PPC that'll wait for the arm to be reset, and then send some impulses to the arm chip trying to race it.

    We have not yet managed to extract the boot1 key, but that's because we haven't tried enough times; it would take quite a lot of time to test it on one single Wii U and that's why we are releasing it: so you can try running it on your Wii Us. That should increase the probability of finding the boot1 key in one day to nearly 90%.

    Hope you enjoy this release.

    Im sure many are wondering, but noone dares to ask. How will boot0 key benefit the homebrew users?

    In order to acquire the boot1 key we first need access to boot0 because boot1 loads after boot0 in the boot sequence.

    Isn't it funny how all the good stuff somehow always appears on april 1st?

    What's next? TrustZone exploit for Nintendo Switch which sends impulses all over the earth?

    Without bothering reading any of the above (including the main post!, keep in mind that April fools jokes are offenses punished by bans on gbatemp.

    If this is some sort of a joke, I would take this out, or really, you deserve what you get.

    I dont see a reason to get banned, post can be removed if they really want, but why should I get punished for something I found on Pastebin?

    Fair enough, so this isn't yours.

    Then put out a huge disclaimer saying so, and that there is a good chance it's a fake given the date, instead of labeling this as a given "release".

    If that were true then I would have been banned many times by now.
    ... well, actually I have been banned multiple times but just not for an April fools day prank.

    This started last year only afaik, and you know, mods in general follow their gut feeling rather than actual rules.

    In any case, he has been warned

    Looks like some more fun like the bricker. I have run this a few times to check it, nothing bad happens. Go ahead and play with it.
