    Read the article, read my electronics book (grr acronyms).
    Saw the pictures: those look like hell to solder.

    Loving all these developments over the last few weeks by the way.

    So to sum up a bit for people a bit lost with all this technical informations :
    * running code on the wii means exploiting a bug to run unsigned code
    * once you can run even the tiniest bit of unsigned code you can access on the wii to all the contents of its internal memory (splitted across a lot of stuff)
    * the deepest the bug is the hardest it is possible to be patched by nintendo. the CCC exploit was not leaked because it could be easily patched by a firmware update. A bug in the boot process is A LOT better as it CAN'T BE PATCHED BY AN UPDATE.
    * the boot process is a long chain of processes, the strength of such chain is the same as the strength of its weakest link. Here there are many bugs in one of these links.
    * Using this bug tmbinc is able to execute starlet code and dump a lot of data. As this is not the main processor of the wii, it does not allow him to use the wii hardware. To get back information he writes in the NAND (which is in fact virtually mapped to a pc file by tcp)
    * Doing this means that he has to use a lot of wires. BUT making a modchip will only involve a flashing of the NAND and will require less wires.

    I just spent $90 on a Wiikey installation, and now you're telling me it'll soon be completely inferior? Ugh.
