    i agree.....i think there are more likely sources to be raided before hykem, and theyre safe....(as far as we know)....unless hykem was about to release something spectacular, and nintendo heard about it....(in other words hykem may have been sold out)?????

    Not as far as I'm aware, no.

    Why would Smealum have not been raided, then? Or Yellows8? Or the more active people in the Nintendo scene?

    That's not something I'd consider as breaking the law (breaking the terms of service). And it's definitely nothing that would give Nintendo or whoever else any power to get his place raided. It just doesn't make any sense from a legal point of view that any of this is true.

    If you expect me to believe stories like raids without news of it after 1 day on the net or ridiculous shit like personal info being sold on the darkwebs I'm never taking my tinfoil hat off ever.

    But what i'm sure is that in the US, if you're bypassing a security, you're violating the copyright act, don't care if it's for homebrews or piracy, you "can't" crack a protection


    Dunno, don't care, just hope is alright and pointing what everyone seems to think "hey he just broken soime protection, that's not illegal", but, yes, it totaly is.

    I don't know the actual reason yet, as soon as I know I'll tell you.
    The day before a detective called to confirm the address, that's when hykem who already used encrypted HDDs wiped all this stuff.
    So whatever they are looking for won't be there anymore.

    I doubt one would risk making copies knowing that the police is going to come, lol. And besides, he was cooperating with smea and yellows8, so they would have the exploit as well.

    The Jailbreak is on the exeptions list of the Copyright Act exemtions yes (it's been 6 years now), so it's not (anymore) law breaking to jailbreak.

    It doesnt matter if he broke any laws or not.
    If a woman can sue McDonald because the coffee was too hot, the law department of a multibillion dollar company can find some obscene law to get you raided.
    If Nintendo wants to push this then they could drag it out in courts for years.
    The odd thing is I would expect before resorting to this kind of measures they would first send a cease and desist letter and then take any further actions.

    Hykem said he wasn't working with anyone else. Why people continue to say this, I have no idea. But the only way he would have really been raided, is if he had a stolen property (i.e. devkit, official tools, etc.) he wasn't supposed to have.

    Hykem was working on PS Vita too before WIIU, maybe Sony did this.

    how do you guys know he got raided for his hacking stuff? for all we know it could've been something else altogether

    I'm out of the Wii U scene and just have mine legit & updated cos i cant be bothered but I know he was apparently due to release an exploit that kept getting delayed or something? Anyway I hope he's alright
