    I've heard the exploit doesn't work on the latest firmware, is this true?

    I'm on the latest firmware. It worked when I tested it.

    As the person behind this, I should point out that Nintendo can't patch this exploit through firmware updates. What I (and fail0verflow before me) did was take advantage of a design flaw in the Boot ROM, and the Boot ROM can never be updated. Nintendo could change the Boot ROM with newer Wii U's, but all current Wii U's are vulnerable.

    Same here! :) Although with the 3ds scene as recent precedent, I fear months and months of secrecy and warez preaching followed by a paid piracy device and no homebrew. Let's pray not.

    Dumping the Boot ROM is the first step of reproducing what fail0verflow did to hack the Wii U.
