    I load it off the http link you enter by building a new path from it to lead to a boot.elf, also right now its unusable and I'm not too sure if its the MEM1, it does load the code and the data just fine but executing things from that new position is no good, except if I write just a simple "Hello world" as a first line of course :P

    Very cool. Yeah, maybe it's not mem1 and you're hitting limit of available memory... I'm sure you'll figure it out. Do you know how to check if it's mem1? I don't know the answer, just asking :)

    Shouldn't matter, as long as you copy the code into 0x01800000 (JIT) and jump to it, it should work fine. Gotta use ROP tho :P
    Dunno how FIX's test gave so little memory though :\ should be a way to flush it all out after gaining control (and to restart we can always just exit back out to the home menu).

    Is what Fix says a major step into backup loading?

    am i right in saying all this time and effort has been to play splatoon with diferent tunes or colours etc etc or mk8 mods or you know bits n bats of nothing compared to the effort gone in ?

    Does anyone intent to make good use of this work , or are we set for hacks n cheats and not much more ?

    cant seem to get my head around the whole point of any of this really , i followed your work since the start , and athlough very impressive im not too sure where it is leading . is the end game for you guys , game modding ? whats your reason for progressing ?

    Uh, it will load ELFs, a common and convenient executable format for writing homebrew.

    Well, yeah, I know that, but we haven't been explicitly told on what limits there are to said homebrew on the Wii U. Does this mean that emulators can be ported over now? USB loading? Region lock removal? Firmware spoofing? Details, details.

    The ELF loader doesn't change anything or let you access anything you couldn't before, it just makes writing homebrew more convenient. Emulators were always possible with the browser exploit, and they're easier to write now. None of the other things you mention are enabled by the ELF loader.

    Well, I hope that a simplified method will be done, like an ELF loader, which I assume Fix94 is working on :P

    ELF loading really isn't anything new. Weren't any of you around back when the Wii hacking scene kicked off?

    That said, it's very nice to see progress like this.

    Somewhere, out there...
    Will this lead to cheats and/or save trading?
