    Does file loading = app launching?

    You leased out your Wii U right? I think it's cool you seem to talk with some people outside of these forums. You've always been nice. Exciting times ahead.

    Kinda sorta :P. Marionumber1 needed an address from firmware 4.1.0. The work was really all him, he just walked me through the steps for obtaining it :).

    What what? Aren't ipk files for linux (AFAIK debian) related packages? Really neat btw.

    It wouldn't surprise me personally if Nintendo was using existing file types for convenience, and Linux is open-sourced, so that would make sense

    You're correct, this is the files for the Wii U version, specifically the challenge app (never got the full game on this Wii U so I'll need to wait until we make a new Webkit exploit for games like Smash or Kirby and the Rainbow Curse :c) that doesn't have all the content.

    On another note, with the initial release of SARCPack, you can tell something big is coming ;) The coding is probably not as good as it could be but it should work fine. Again, feel free to include it with whatever. If you need to Yaz0 compress, use yaz0enc from amnoid.de. yaz0enc might have some trouble with big files (I tried it on MysteryHouseMaxTexture from SM3DW and it went to like -40% halfway in ???)but it should compress fine so ignore the percentage.

    How do you use SARCPack, I can't figure out how to use it.

    Look at the source, just drag a folder onto the script/exe and it should make the file, or you can use the command line with SARCPack.py folder (it also says it if you just run the program)

    Maybe I'm wrong, but Ubisoft make a big mistake there.

    So I'm now wondering if further down the line if we will be able to run Linux on the Wii U. I mean apparently the demo stations use it. Being able to run a full OS on with a gamepad could be really nice.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Its definately possible. Thanks to the amazing work of Ninja_Carver we currently have ubuntu 12.04 lts running in the vWii. Albeit its more of a poc right now without SMP (pretty useless to most) but it does work.

    We would need 3 things to make this happen however:
    1. The kernel exploit (no way is it going to run in userspace alone)

    2. Access to external storage (sd and/or usb) for the filesystem

    3. Community. Linux wouldnt be linux without it. Furthermore, im still pretty noobish when it comes to coding (im more of a hardware guy) so we would need the efforts of those with much better programming skills than myself XD
