    So rw-r-r-0644 found a boot1 coldboot exploit for the Wii U. Hopefully this will lead to a coldboot executable with out needing to buy a DS game. so once the eShop does go down we will be still have homebrew one way or another.

    Thank you for this awesome News.
    (Where are these "The Wii U is dead..." Guys now....? :rolleyes:)

    And/Plus:

    With Maschell´s new Aroma Homebrew Enviroment we also do not need a DS Game to buy for Coldboot.:)

    so what. what was that $7? I paid $60 for true blue on the ps3, just to play a handful of new games. and, this is supposedly from the same people who brought us sx os. I'm damn glad they're being prosecuted, damn leechers on the scene.

    im not sure how they would implement this without a hack already installed, theres no serial port of any kind on the wiiu other than i think the IR sensor port maybe? (im sure i read the wiis sensor port could do some things) and i dont think you can load any data off the SD card so early in the chain

    I might have an excuse to plug my Wii U! It's been hacked, for 3 years now, but I haven't even looked at it since hacking it.

    I play my wii u daily. I'm currently testing the dark mode theme by default. I just got done playing it in fact. I didn't sleep last night, so I'm a bit agitated and hyper sensitive, so bear with me. I hope to go to sleep early tonight.

    I did for a short period until my external hard drive failed and I just kind of lost momentum after that. Hacks like these are the kinds of hacks that really motivate my interest in the community.

    same. I have my wii plugged in. the only difference is I no longer play the wii, but it's still plugged in. ;)

    same for me with every system but the wii u. on almost every system, including the ps4, I don't play the games. I find more interest in the hacks.

    I still boot it up from time to tie to check my WiiMail and the channels, (nintendo, news, weather, etc,.) but there isn't much new stuff yet...)

    I always played the games, mostly. Plus back when I was 7 I thought that homebrew meant physically and
    permanently
    modding the console, cause I was dumb

    FailST already accomplishes this because its can inject a system app. But boot1 is obviously better

    This is great I saw the news earlier, Its always nice to have multiple exploits in the back pocket for when ever they are needed.
    I heard Maschell was working on a new Homebrew Environment but I didn't know it was called Aroma? sounds good. :)

    Yes, baby! Finally, a proper coldboot solution!

    Can't to finally have a proper way to coldboot into CFW and have the beloved dark theme enabled by default with hacks!
    That, and of course all the other perks of Mocha (or whichever CFW comes from this) and IOSU permissions right from coldboot :D
