    Where have all the "waaa i bricked my wii" posts gone, their is only 1 on front page at anyone time now.

    Have all these new super apps made it so that even the nubiest noob can hack a wii without fucking it up?

    I miss those posts and being able to laugh at DeadlyFoez offering his unbricking services or people getting to rip on noobs who cant follow the guides.

    Whats the next big thing going to be?

    Whats the holy grail at the moment?

    Custom Firmware. Although some homebrew projects even make that kind of obsolete.

    Behind you.
    CFW IS possible but only in combination with SNEEK, priiloader and bootmii. So you actually run a modded version of the system menu from your SD or USB device. although this is not really CFW I think.

    Its not CFW
    In case this isn't clear: The system menu is NOT firmware

    All in one loaders are the future

    Recently uLoader has had a few updates, saves to/from SD/USB and soon WiiWare+VC from SD/USB [​IMG]

    Maybe soon GX will perfect NTFS too

    Soon we will have loaders that support NTFS, saves on SD/USB, wiiware+vc on SD/USB with full compatibility and launching homebrew too. All that will be needed by most then is an all-in-one loader and a forwarder iso to mplayer CE

    The holy grail will always be GC from USB though [​IMG]

    i dont see why GC games from USB is the holy grail. agreed that it is something that will take some hackery to get it to work. but when's the last time you people actually played GC games? i think people are remembering these games as better than they really were. i have a flatmii and i can play these games over USB. and they still all suck.

    theres only like 20 games that are good. you can put multiple GC games on a DVD. DVDs are $0.20 each. so you can put all the good games on $2 worth of DVDs. if these games are so great to make this the holy grail, then surely they are worth the $2.

    i say the holy grail is a open source homebrew IOS replacement with full functions. think mini with USB/network/bluetooth capabilities.

    thats not the issue giantpune, the issue is having a MASSIVE library to choose from at any given time. There are some GC games that are excellent and I would play all the time (Mario Golf being one) if it was on USB but because its on disc I get too lazy to put it in.

    holy grail for me = as it is now.

    if people ask me what game system should i get, automatic answer is Wii. sure 360 and ps3 have some great titles that wii doesn't have, but its the same on the wii.

    i view the wii as being like an open source system. its technically all freeware. (or pirateware i guess you can call it).

    There's probably more chance of USB gc game loading on the 360 or the PS3

    I class the "holy grail" as the thing most people are asking for.
    imho GC from usb is easy with a wode (no need to connect to a pc)

    Goldeneye as a wad springs to mind, and banjo tooie also. (these will work 100% on Wii64 and people will still ask for them as wads)

    A complete replacement for sys menu and nintendo IOS would be great, but no one ever asks about these things, well rarely.

    Well they are both powerful enough to run a GC emu. Or do you know something the rest of us don't?
