marcan said 9 days ago:

we're calling the WiiU security processor the Starbuck (vs. Starlet on Wii). And it seems to be about equally vulnerable, too

sorry, I'd rather not talk about how I got that yet. It doesn't involve leaks, it involves Wii U hacks ;)

Pro tip: 40 character hex strings are usually SHA1 hashes, not encryption keys.

Hmm, if that number is what I think it is...

Should be interesting to see if this is a vector into 3DS as well. Maybe, maybe not.

Wow that was fast. But unfortunately maybe not that surprising considering how rushed the OS seems in general.

Lets pretend it's hacked and homebrew is available for all to do what they want (Region Free, Run games off HDD etc) then what are the chances of being able to access Wii U's online features without being banned?

Considering Nintendo can't even restore account names from accounts that were deleted, I would say 0%.

Wait and see.

This. That would seriously make me consider picking up the console.

If it stays region locked I'll have to wait until the first relevant jrpgs are released. Then I'll have to see whether they are localized, and if so, to what region.

The homebrew channel stuff was posted yesterday, this cryptic 8 days message is from today. It's possible they've made further progress on the Wii U in general. Let's wait to see what they have to say about the most recent post.

If it becomes difficult for Nintendo to patch properly (no clue about this stuff personally) then this isn't going to help with their wanting more third party games..

Think it will be ok?

If it's going to be the same cat and mouse game like on PS3 then I'm not going to bother. Sure it's nice to run some emulators and back up your games to the hard drive but if they force you to keep updating software just to use your machine which kills the hack then I'm out. That was a huge pain in the arse.

I hope PS4 has HD PS2 emulation similar to those in PC.

I'll be honest, I wouldn't have used my Wii as much as I did if it hadn't been for the homebrew applications. WiiU has less deficiencies that could be fixed by homebrew, but it'd still be nice to have.

Still, I doubt this will lead to something substantial. It would be beyond embarrassing to fuck up the Wii U security like they did with the Wii. They learned their lesson after the DS and managed to lock down both the DSi and 3DS, so I would assume they've done the same with the Wii U.
