    Don't worry about it being slow, everyone has real lives outside of gbatemp, its all in your spare time and unpaid after all, too many people forget that and think that its the one and only thing you do and should spend 24/7 on it.

    The minute it feels like work is when you forget why you do it

    I think a new update was just released for the Wii U. Luckily my internet was crappy so it failed to download, can someone check if it's safe? (btw I was already on 5.3.2.)

    What exactly needs to be backported? The webkit exploit that Comex used on 3.x has already been leaked [https://www.mediafire.com/?dgtm8ue4o89j9fr] This is the ArrayBufferView overflow bug that Comex talks about in his CCC presentation, which he used to dump CafeOS and develop his IOSU exploit to get the common key.

    Don't ask me, probably just for compatibility's sake, because then ours will work on 3.X through 5.1.0.

    To be honest, I can't wait. The reason is game modding.
    Think about it. NEWER SUPER MARIO BROS. U!!!!!!! by Newerteam!!!

    Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii by Newerteam is the best there is on the Wii.
    Amazing!! :D
    I hope game modding will be available for digital games.

    I was going to record one once I got my hands on Caffiine, because otherwise it's not that exciting, you just go to a url, browser exits, do it again, and then go to whatever program you want.

    Ah. That makes sense. One browser exploit to rule them all!

    Makes sense as the kernel exploit basically applies to all versions right? As it has not been patched yet. Once it is released and Nintendo runs the exploit(s) with full access to their hardware/software then a patch will be released. It will end up being a cat and mouse if people want to keep online functionality. A great thing is that it does not require anything beind installed. So, people SHOULD be able to run legitimate games online without risk of being banned, right? If Nintendo does not monitor though (online) we could see some serious bullcrap in MK8, lol. Infinite golden mushroom ;-) If that is possible. I told my wife and she was relieved. When the 360 had issues I hardware flashed it back to life. The first Wii was bricked (was one that had the GameCube controller ports built in). Dumb mistake on my past AND the program I had used. I was able to secure another Wii for free, basically, roflmao, and was golden after that. Unless there is security that we are not being told about then the brick risk with this SHOULD be nonexistent with the userspace/kernel exploits.

    I'd imagine that the IOSU exploit(s) will carry a risk of bricking. I am still very confused as to how Comex "called a function" and it bricked his Wii U (could not be recovered, right?). That is the type of crap that had me looking for a guide from somebody reliable to hardware flash a Wii U. The ultimate protection as there is probably never going to be a "bootmii" or "priiloader." Oh well, others can test the waters first, lol.

    AS for patching they could just wait to release it when a "Freeboot" like feature is ready to work with the exploit? Well never mind they have to wait to release the exploit because they can make the freeboot when its ready


    Like the old wii used to do when the new update came out modded wii can update to the kernel without losing/bricking the modded wii u
    This is similar to JTAGS and PS3 as well

    I don't know the details, but he called somethine called CreateTitle, i.e. a function which performs permanent modifications on the NAND. I suppose the system software has protection against creating random titles, hence why the console didn't boot anymore. As long as you don't call functions which modify anything on your NAND, you should be safe.

    Other than that, stuff like bootmii obviously always has a risk of bricking if it's doing something wrong :P

    Thanks for that. Haha, if there was a way to recover a nand via hardware flashing I guess people could poke around. No real reason to do so now though given the scope of the hack (what we are being told).

    Same here, looking forward to the expoit video!

    Also, is it possible to inject DS games into the Brain Training VC with the exploit like the 3DS Game Boy VC does? Or can it do even more like installing VCs, Homebrew Channel U or whatever the name will be for Wii U Homebrew Channel XD

    (I'm on 5.3.2E btw.)

    Would have to finish another Webkit exploit to see how the files work. I'm pretty sure they hand converted the game instead of just slapping a DS game in an emulator, hence having a new layout. Also, until a loader exploit is made nothing is installable. Neither kernel nor IOSU alone can do that.

    No, not for a very long time. Clever name though, I like it

    Maybe "HomebrU Loader"?
