    Yea I want to know this too... I don't understand why everybody keeps it secret? Why do people share al these (nearly) illeg*l software for modding Wii games, and than don't share this simple key.bin file?

    Google.

    Don't think about us posting it, it's Nintendo's property and admins are careful of our posts !

    And the FBI too !! *__*

    This famous "key.bin" is a decryption file Nintendo owns to decrypt their Wii files. As far as I know, it's kinda the code they are using, and it's their property.

    Because giving that out would be giving out copyrighted material. Its on google, its on newsgroups, and probably on a torrent site or two.

    The software that uses the key isn't illegal because it's useless without the key.
