    So...why are people assuming it's an encryption key? I don't think I would assume that.

    fail0verflow tweeted this 4 hours ago:

    right here

    Edit:

    Their previous blogs "8 days" and "11 days" may have something to do with the release date of Wii U. But i for myself take the chance that these may be the keys of some other console as well.

    Yes.
    I'll say that for one last time. First two strings are hashes, not keys, that's a noticeable difference. The third string also probably isn't a key to anything.

    Although I would still play Nintendo games, if this were to be the case, I was thinking Wii U Gamepad + Steam Big Picture Mode = drool all over my Gamepad.

    So may be the first exploit will be something like with the PS3 where you need to buy a dongle to get it to work.

    This is ftdi - serial to usb converter mostly used to get debug console. Also "The GoodFET is an open-source JTAG adapter".

    Console to what?

    Actually I am not familiar with the hardware setup here. But one can analyze how wii u uses the usb storage devices by implementing a pseudo storage device. Testing numerous things like reporting weird storage sizes, reporting bad sectors and so on...

    What you suggest seems to be a quest for a magic dongle or search for a bug in how wii u handles usb connection in general.

    Fail0verflow will have a table at 29C3. It seems incredibly likely that they will announce what they've got then. 11 days, guys. :P

    11 days until...Christmas? Not sure what that has to do with fail0verflow or the WiiU, but that's what is happening in 11 days...

    maybe its a hash of all the data their Wii U stored on that "USB Mass Storage Device" they plugged into it.

    i think the "drunk" comment is referring to being able to run homebrew on the device (homebrew == beer, device == drunk)

    :O Of course, now I feel like an idiot. I don't drink much, let alone home brewed stuff. But I do live just down the road from a shop that sells home brewing equipment, so there's just no excuse for my ignorance!

    If you get a little bit of alcohol you don't get drunk. Only If you drink too much of it... So they overfed the device with something nasty... That's my guess...
