    yes its hacked in a way already but is the real 4.0 ever going to be hacked the nintendo one.i know from day one it was said there is no way around it but is this really true.i have the hacked version of it already .so does anybody know if coders are working on this.i know what some of you might say you need a cios installed and a homebrew channel before updating.i'm no coder but i have to believe there is a way.

    i'm only asking because i might need to help someone hack their wii and i'm not sure as of now if their is 4.0 at this moment.

    all i know is most known coders i think are probably focused on the DSi homebrew channel.

    Are you talking about an exploit, like the Twilight Hack? Well, that's not really hacking the System Menu, but another exploit might be found. Only if they aren't cautious with their games. Twilight Princess was released in 2006, now, they're going to be a lot more cautious.

    yeah that is what i'm talking about an exploit.somehow i think it will never happen.if there ends up being one it might be the same one zelda had that was used to make the homebrew channel so i guess it would end up being useless.

    also i found out i'm unable to do anything to the wii i was going to help hack it ended up being a 4.0.

    from what i'm seeing the wii may get another way to get the homebrew channel.problem about this video is although the homebrew channel got installed from the sd section of the wii it wasn't a 4.0 wii but maybe on the 4.0 menu in the new sd menu this will work.
