    Is there a source for this? (As in where it came from, not source code). Never heard of "Naehrwert" before, but this is quite disrespectful to the devs of Riivolution IMO. If they wan't details of how Riivolution worked in the public, they would have made it open source.

    Will this eventually mean Riivolution w/o offical disc? Cause not many people go the route that Wiimms set for us.

    It's not like this really released any secrets. Other people have reversed riivolution already. This is nothing new, but most other people on this forum did not have enough knowledge to even bring it this far.

    But as it was said to me previously, before Newer SMBW gets released, they will have to release an updated version of riivolution to make newer work. But that is just hearsay.

    You never have heard of Team Twiizers?!?!? How heavy is that rock that you live under? They created HBC, BootMii, the HackMii installer, and many exploits.

    Nintendo did not develop riivolution. Riivolution is unauthorized code.

    I would normally say "from one thief to another", but the riivolution team has always made the compatibility solely for those that own the retail disc. Although they support homebrew, they don't want to go out of their way to support or promote piracy. I do feel that this is sorta disrespectful to the riivolution team, but I'm not going to shed a tear over it.

    I think snikerz was saying this in a sarcastic way (a "ditto") to Sifjar for not knowing who's "Naehrwert".

    I don't know enough about this to move much farther. I got the payload out of the boot.elf. Ran his program on the payload which uncompressed it into a slightly larger file and now I don't quite get where to go in IDA Pro to continue...
