    www.wab.com is claiming so

    Chances are it's fake though considering the download link isn't working

    According to 'ZeNiTRaM' from Maxconsole #wiidev's topic is "wab = teh ghey" so looks like it is fake.

    The channel is full so I can't check

    Yeah WAB worked on the PSP, they done one of the first loaders I believe (Been a long time lol)

    -edit- Just joined #wiiDev, the topic is 'key/Warez= BanĀ¦ Wii Hacked iiW!' + Some more stuff and 'wab = the ghey'

    Well they were fake back then. Ok only one member of them. he was doing the first downgrader for psp, but he stole codes from someone etc. and never got it working. dunno if this wii thing will work. can't even download that .rar [​IMG] like i'd waste dvd for tetris.

    I run a Cube game in my Wii this week (made some tests...)
    If I remember correctly, when I turned the wii on while the cube disc inserted, it immediately startet the cube game. Have to retest that.

    i just checked it. Wii game, orginal or backup, and gamecube game, orginal and backup will bring up the warning, if you press A it will show the channels.

    NO AUTOBOOT on wii possible [​IMG]

    My memory might be playing up here but did WAB not do some stuff around the time of the first wiinja (or more specifically the hex dump thereof) and have a "war/coding match" with the people behind the serial cable "chip".

    It's obviously fake. Had it been real, they would've released their game and become famous. The guy is probably an attention whore.

    I just looked at the website and laughed as hard as I could because the US government took it down.

    I wouldn't be surpised if that was "faked" as well. (the symbols on left/right of page did not look legit - IMO [​IMG] )

    I don't think the government ever "takes" over a site by replacing it with something like that. They just flat-out shut them down and make them inaccessible.
