    This is the exploit/method to get the Espresso Wii U/vWii Ancast keys from the Wii U.​
    A few people have asked why PS3 Hax was so heavily involved in the Wii U hacking scene. The reason is that the work has been continued by a dedicated PS3 hacker(at this point should just be known as hacker extraordinaire), who wishes to remain anonymous. He gave me these files to pass on and update the BootROM source. He hasn’t asked for a thing and would only like 1) to see the scene prosper and 2) because he was bored. We should all be thankful for his work, because without it, we wouldn’t be this far. The same debt of gratitude goes to Maxternal and f0f for their thankless contributions.​

    Before a Starbuck hack, you would need code running on the Espresso in Wii U mode.

    For this, the genie is already out of the bottle. That being said, what became of the honour in the scene? If you're given something in confidence to test, you test and report back, and don't leak anything.

    In the future, devs should make tiny modifications, for instance a space before a ":" in a diagnostic message, two spaces, or no spaces. If you do a couple of these, you can track which version you give to whom, and you can easily identify the source of the leak (note: this won't work if they are smart and communicate with each other).

    Well...since it's a leak, it's not exactly true that the community will prosper, but at least that guy won't be bored anymore.


    Is there still anyone left wondering why team twiizers decided not to do anything hack-related to the wiiu? :(

    Wasn't it because they weren't interested in it?

    Well the anonymous hacker contacted the guy who leaked it and apparently stated everything was cool between them soooo...... but I haven't heard any reason why team twiizwers didn't release anything

    Wii U homebrew is just a dying husk compared to what Wii homebrew used to be, in pretty much every way.

    I wouldnt say that it's just taking time to build itself up. Once we can finally start making brew for it, it show flow like a dam which has just been blown up

    Not too much it covers the boot function for the wiiu portion of the system. The next big task would be getting the starbuck dumped and decrypted
