    Today morning i was checking the homebrew launcher code. While i was "reading" the main.c file, i found that:

    Code:
       
    static const u32 secret_code[] =
        {
            KEY_UP,
            KEY_UP,
            KEY_DOWN,
            KEY_DOWN,
            KEY_LEFT,
            KEY_RIGHT,
            KEY_LEFT,
            KEY_RIGHT,
            KEY_B,
            KEY_A,
        };
    
    There's a secret code into the Homebrew Launcher:

    UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A

    I tried it and here's what happend:

    Now I wonder if someone will come here and ask "So this means we have kernel access?"

    On topic: I remember those suggestions of making it beer instead of water in the Menu contest, although they weren't mean to be taken seriously; it's a neat detail, I suppose.

    The only thing the Homebrew Launcher is useful for, displaying a silly graphic. :rolleyes:
