    As far as we know now Hykem was raided. This is just a heads-up for people so they know what happened to him and so false information won't spread around.

    Another? There was one already?

    Besides, Crediar (from my POV now) is quite a respectful source since they work together close, so...

    Hopefully the IOSU was sent to another team for safe keeping. Also glad Hykem is safe. He didn't deserve this shit.

    Maybe @SonyUSA can help here a bit and give more information so people won't get wrong informations, as far as I know they work pretty close together too.

    Whoops... Yeah, I'm pretty inactive on GBATemp lately and I haven't seen any active thread on top of page 1 since the last few hours so I decided to make one.

    Sorry, if a mod reads this and can confirm this, just close/delete it please, thanks!

    Still find this hard to believe.. Hykem is signed in to IRC, you would think if he had been raided he wouldn't have access to a computer especially less than 24 hours after the supposed raid.

    If it is true then this is a really shit move by Nintendo and strange as other developers have shown a lot more progress with the WIIU than Hykem has yet they are untouched. Nintendo deserve everything they get and hopefully something will eventually get leaked.

    I guess all we can do is thank Hykem for keys and documentation he has left us.

    crediar is a respectable Wii/WiiU dev, isn't that reliable to you?

    What laws did he break / suspected of breaking that it would be justified for his place to get raided? Doing a bit of hardware and software hacking on consoles isn't something that justifies having police raid your home.

    The only think making me think this might be true is the fact that crediar is the one reporting it.

    After all, Hykem hasn't broke any laws. And surely Loadiine is closer to being so? There would be no basis for it.

    Not believing Hykem is a thing i can understand, but Crediar ?
    You're breaking laws even just by trying to reverse enginering a firmware AFAIK no ?

    Crediar? Against Hykem?

    I'd more believe Smea would be doing that but never Crediar...

    Depending on where he leaves, Im sure his announcement of releasing the IOSU exploit could be interpreted as intent to commit (enter piracy law) or conspiracy to commit (enter piracy law here)

    Because this was never intended to attack Hykem.
