    So, crediar changed the topic on #SNEEK (efnet):
    Code:
    * Topic for #SNEEK is: SNEEK is now on http://code.google.com/p/sneek/
    * Topic for #SNEEK set by crediar!cReDiAr@cl-2601.ham-01.de.sixxs.net at Thu Jan 28 05:11:09 20

    Some quick information:
    • runs on MINI (makes it way easier to start up [not as in v1])
    • requires only a FS dump (import, meta, shared1, shared2, sys, ticket, title, tmp)
    • runs channels & games
    • allows Shop Channel usage
      • the Wii is identified on the fly via SNEEK and assign rights to download purchased titles
      • possibility to fake another Wii to gain its download rights with via device.cert
      • Shop Channel Download Animation Hack, always have Mario and Luigi Swimming
    • System Menu update is working on the emulated NAND
      • reports boot2-v5
    • completely independant from your real NAND
    • ES module completely rewritten
    • works with SDHC
    • possibility to emulate SD card for titles (unactive for System Menu as for r15)
    • sends debug output via USB Gecko
    Files:
    • SD:/
      • bootmii/
        • armboot.bin
        • ppcboot.elf (the one that came with BootMii)
        • bootmii.ini (autoboot enabled)
      • boot2.bin
      • obviously a NAND filesystem dump (import, meta, shared1, shared2, sys, ticket, title, tmp)

    Finaly! I had to delete some Saves and Channels just to play a new game. I need this so badly [​IMG]. Can't wait to test it! Also looking forward to every bit of news until the release [​IMG].

    Btw @Det1re: You're a committer on the Googlecode-Page [​IMG]?

    I guess this will not support USB, I haven't seen any mention of it, but that would make the most sense, as SDHC doesn't work well with homebrew, so this may not even be as useful as it seems. I can't wait to see it happen though, it sounds completely awesome.

    I should add this to post #1:

    SNEEK uses a normal FS dump, just as TriiForce. So it's quite plug'n'play.

    Though, shouldn't you still have a limit for the Channels? I mean, you only got some Pages in the main Wii-Menu...and when you now have more Channels than there's space, shouldn't this give problems? Just a thought...

    Also unconfirmed to be in release, it was in beta:
    Shop Channel Download Animation Hack, Always have Mario and Luigi Swimming.
    (Normally it's a 1 out of 100 chance, or so.)

    Also: Device.cert wasn't needed anymore.

    This "should" have better compatibility than TriiForce, as for the limit to number of channels, well you could use both SNEEK & TriiForce.

    Will the source be modified by others to allow it to run from HDD, or is this not possible ? If we could use HDD then you could have a few different NAND and swap between them, SD cards are super expensive the larger you go.

    Anyway, great stuff [​IMG] 2010 is gonna be the best year ever for the Wii with all the homebrew and the official things like the new Zelda etc.

    Simply amazing untouched nand this should help with new homebrew destroying
    updates from ninty without trying fixes/patches on actual wii nand thus reducing
    bricks from noobz installing stuff not following instruction etc.... Very Nice i say
    keep testing this is worth waiting four... oops i can speel

    I remember something about USB not being viable for the ES module or something along those lines. But that was way back when v1 came out so who knows what's changed since then.

    Still, now I see why v2 has taken so long to come out. This sounds like it'll be a very complete release and I look forward to it.

    Yea hopefully USB will be supported, if not then this probably will be useless to me. [​IMG]

    I though Crediar or someone else stated that there's simply no Room for USB-Support? Oh well, when the Source is up, we'll see...

    USB support would be great since my SD slot took shit lol, but since this runs similar to how bootmii runs, I may be able to use my SD card, because bootmii reads it, and I can backup my nand, and restore my nand from the would be fudged sd slot, so who knows

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure this will let any wii be unbrickable, won't it? Since it runs from MINI it will just start right up for a BootMii/boot2 user from what I understand. Perhaps a console with only BootMii/IOS could install a Preloader to the real NAND, set it to autoboot an app that calls IOS254, causing SNEEK to run from startup with no user interaction. And since all updates would work through the virtual NAND they'd be just as protected as a BootMii/boot2 user.
