    KcrPL has been a helpful member of the community for a good while, I suspect his name is there to stir up drama, although he's welcome to confirm or deny in his own time. I don't want to put anyone on blast here, the "guilty party" is fairly obvious.

    Gotcha. It'd be nice to get them to reveal whatever hashes they've made etc so we can have those for protection purposes.

    Thanks!

    What I am also wondering is why everyone is reacting this way to a 11 year old console. Like, even if you are affected you can get another one for less than $20. I fail to see how this is such a big deal.

    Priiloader Killer - Restore with Priiloader you say? Take this!

    Man, haven't heard of Priiloader in awhile


    Anyway, why go after the wii? Seems like a ploy to distract people from other stuff.

    I dunno, but people like me where I have tons of saves, and other modded shit on my Wii. But let's not get started on how many nostalgic memories I have with this system.

    I guess that's fair. But then again. You could just backup your saves and homebrew and put them somewhere that it would be untouched.

    Also make sure the people giving the ok AREN'T RELATED because if they have a connection they might say it is safe and then it bricks your Wii

    Got to consider the contents their Wiis hold. A gamer's nightmare is losing all progress in their games.

    Let me also point out that if you really care about your system and saves and can't tell between what is safe and dangerous. You should not be tampering with it in the first place. It always comes with its risks and it'll be on you if something happens to your console.

    At the end of the day, that's a nightmare in of itself for backing all those up and restoring everything, not just save files to a new Wii. Also gotta remod it, if possible, and restore a ton of shit. But let's not get started on how you have to run the game and create a new save to install a backed up save.

    Yeah true. But at the end of the day, just use common sense and don't download anything fishy.

    I may just be paranoid, but it kinda feels like someone hired these guys to kill the Wii modding community.

    What would someone have to gain except to have a chance at killing Wii modding.

    Yeah you are quite paranoid. Also, this won't kill the Wii modding community. If you use that logic then every console modding community would be dead in the water by now.

    It is a shame. But they could always share the source code for proof there's no malicious content involved. It's what I would do if there's a threat of brick code being hidden in homebrew apps
