    Nintendo WIi U hacked?

    First of all, this is not in wii mode! Ok fail0verflow (a real trusted homebrew group has just released an image that shows something that isn't supposed to be on the gamepad. A picture of reggie with their name on the top of it. Do you think this is real? Are they hinting and teasing at a later release for homebrew on the Wii U? it is from a trusted source that originally helped hack the Nintendo Wii. Other homebrew devs say to give it 2 weeks and the Wii U is going to be completely unlocked.
    Heres their twitter:https://twitter.com/fail0verflow
    This is the image: "The Wii U is a system we can all enjoy together" - Reggie Fils-Aime http://twitter.yfrog.com/gymu6fjp
    And something odd they posted:fail0verflow ::
    What do you think? WIll you hack your wii U if it gets unlocked? State some things that you would like the WIi U to be capable of if it is hacked!

    I'm leaving mine just the way it is. Only updates I'm doing is from Nintendo.

    I am all about some homebrew. The day it comes out I will likely test it.

    Fair enough for people who want to modify their systems, I can't argue with that; however I've never been into the modding scene and likely never will be, as I prefer my systems to be originals.

    Sure, homebrew games and Blu-Ray support might be cool, though I already have a capable Blu-Ray player (PS3) and homebrew games could easily be released through Nintendo's eShop.

    Take a look at all the Wii homebrew out there;

    List of homebrew applications - WiiBrew

    Then factor in they may be able to unlock using the old wii games with the new pro controller or even the gamepad.

    I don't see much evidence in that picture, you can make pictures appear on the gamepad quite easily, I'll wait two weeks and I bet I don't see anything happen.

    My Wii is hacked anyway and my PS3 is really really hacked to bits so modding and homebrew is all done on those consoles I have no need for anything else, plus as full proof as Nintendo hardware is the Wii U seems to have broken that trend just a little so I think I'd like to keep my warranty thank you.

    Like it has been said in the other hack threads... running homebrew is not for everyone. Nobody knows what we will be able to install yet until we crack the system. People said the same thing about the original wii and homebrew until all of a sudden you were able to play dvds. To me, I love playing emulators and having emulators built around the gamepad is a cool thought. Nobody is forced to hack their system. fail0verflow has no reason to lie about a hack.

    If they can get Blu Ray support and a good media player, I might consider it way down the road. But to test it out on day one is just crazy, unless $350 doesn't mean much to you. If I do anything at all, it will only be after a bunch of loonies like you brick your systems and figure out how to do everything safely.

    I would be VERY careful with this. Now that Nintendo has a (decent) online presence, it certainly wouldn't be hard for them to verify your consoles firmware and potentially ban you/void your warrantee for having a modded system. Granted, you could disable your network connection, but that seems like an awful lot to sacrifice for some "homebrew".

    Agreed. I'm always careful with those kind of things, and trying the first version of something isn't really safe also.

    I have tons of experience with stuff like this. I am not concerned at all. My 360, PS3, iPad, iPhone, router, and even my two android devices have some form of homebrew on them. I am not recommending you all to go out and try this, but I know what I am doing. Again, my PS3 and my 360 have homebrew on them and I have been online gaming on them with no issues for quite some time.

    No, it isn't. But if you take precautions you will be fine. Wait for people like me to help them test and work our all the kinks and wait for stable builds.

    I don't have a Wii U.

    The Wii Homebrew Channel and other mods intrigued me, but I never got them.
    Super Smash. Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, and Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 are my favorite Wii Games.
    They've all been modded, especially Brawl. They're all good games without the mods too.
    The way I see it, hackers dedicate considerable time to improve the experiences of those interested.
    It costs a considerable amount of money to develop a major video game, and companies don't implement everything.
    On video, Balanced Brawl and Brawl- look more enjoyable than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
    I also like the texture and Stage Building hacks.
    There's so much more that the Brawl hacks have to offer that Nintendo wouldn't offer until the next installment if ever.
    Nintendo's versions of "updates" are to release a new game a few years later. No problem there, but I really appreciate - though I've never tried - what hackers have done.
    I don't like Mario Kart Wii Hackers that hack to win, rather the ones who hack to lose and make things chaotic.
    If done the right way, the Mario Kart Wii online experience is so much more fun.
    You get a few fun or challenging races here or there, but with hackers things can reach another level.
    I don't want to rant too much, and I don't support software piracy.

    I just think the hackers should be appreciated for doing the things that paid developers can't, don't, or won't.

    I'm big on hacking normally but I can guarantee that your Xbox 360 that is hacked if it's online on paid for servers that no one wants hacking on, eventually some time down the line they are going to perma ban your console, and quite frankly rightly too I see no reason as to why Nintendo would not ban or exclude you in some way from online gaming on their system, I intend to play lots of games online on my Wii U so I won't be risking that thank you.

    That and hacking on the Xbox 360 led to people spamming online matches with hacks and cheats that makes some games unplayable, look at MW1 and MW2 hacked to death from people only hacking their consoles for bad reasons, so even though most of the peoples intentions on this forum will be honourable others out there are not so honourable and are determined to ruin things for paying customers.
    So does your blu-ray playback sound so good now? something that I'll be honest I don't think the system will be able to do anyway due to the drive being proprietary unlike the Wii DVD drive that was just a standard DLDVD drive, and the revised models of the Wii were unable to play back burned DVD-DL discs or DVD's so what makes people honestly think they will be able to play blu-rays when the hacks come out I don't know?

    Whenever they get it hacked, make sure you start a new thread on here specifically to keep us posted on how your experiences are going.

    Meanwhile...

    Sony and Microsoft fight over who's boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is all about having fun with them.

    Yes, my homebrew still sounds good. My 360 has been online for a LONG time without ever getting a ban. If it did happen, to be honest, I would not care either way. I understand the risks involved when running homebrew on a console. I also hacked my PS3 back when the first hacks came out, and as long as you are smart and not doing anything suspicious online you were fine. I can still log into PS3 online right now and I have custom firmware on it.

    I understand people being upset that people will hack for wrong reasons, but don't talk down to those of us who are not impacting your gaming while we enjoy our homebrew. I could be misunderstanding your post but that is how it comes across in my eyes.

    It depends on how advanced the hackers get. My PS3 is many staged behind on official firmware but when I log online it makes it think I am always up to date.

    Haha I am a 4TL (for the lose) hackers on MKW, and it is fun!
    Untill a 4TW (for the Win) hacker comes in. I become a hacker cop and destroy them Sometimes I have met up with more 4TL hackers and one 4TW hacker comes in and any legit racer gets the gold while the 4TW hacker is rage quiting!
    Don't put my name on a grave yet

    Hopefully...

    I'm not talking down to you mate that would be hypocritical of me as a hacker but speaking as a gamer first you need to realise the whole I hack legitimately argument is very old and very irrelevant nowadays, hacking is first and foremost about cheap people downloading video game torrents and or cheating in online lobbies now, a problem for what punkbuster was created for on the PC, and should be brought over to the consoles if I'm honest, and trust me you will get banned from Xbox live, I work for Microsoft I know what they are doing and you will be on a hit list for perma bans, personally for me it's not worth it, I like to play online and I like to pay for my games.

    I don't see Wii u homebrew having any real advantage over Wii homebrew in anyway.

    I loved mario kart on wii soo much and I'm gonna be honest since the hackers started joining mario kart and messing things up i got to the spoint i just can't stand it. I hate with all my heart hwo those ppl trolled mario kart online Maybe for you it's a cool thing to have hackers in Mario Kart of course if you hack as well it might be fun somehow yet i can't just understand it... Whats the point of playing a racing game if u can't win the way it's meant to be? Once hackers Joined Mario Kart it was over.

    As soon as ppl start hacking online the challenge and competition just fades away.

    I honestly can't share your point of view at all madara but once again thatst he magic of different points of views.

    It's true that everybody has different opinions as to reasons why they like to use homebrew. Homebrew isn't necessarily just to pirate games and hack into multiplayer online games. Actually, all the developers of homebrew do not condone pirating or anything like that at all but all power is taken advantage of by some people. I use homebrew on the wii to listen to my mp3s, watch my movies, and play old school games on a nintendo console instead of a computer. There are different ways a person can use homebrew. Of course i do agree that once online gets infested with people who think they're cool just because they "hacked their console and can do whatever they want online", everything fun ends. Thre is no more competition and whoever gloats because they hacked their console is stupid because they're not the ones who developed the hack at all! All they did was either get it hacked for them or followed rules any simpleton can follow. Developers are the true geniuses as they spend a considerable amount of time to take the best out of the console but never have i heard that they do it just to take money away from actual game developers. The bottom line of this is that homebrew in its essence isn't bad, the way SOME people want to use it makes it bad.

    Yeah i understand that Homebrew brings nice things to the table but the fact that it's used to hack online and ruin games like Mario Kart is what pisses me off... When i bought Mario Kart and played it online i was like holy crap i will play this for years it was only like 5 months or so until i started seeing ppl hacking in Mario Kart... infinite stars, shrooms and Blue Shells made it impossible to play and TOTALLY ruined my mario kart online experience... Mario Kart is a racing game and like any other it's about facing off ppl and trying to claim 1st with your skills all that went to hell with the Hackers.

    But if you hack them back, like try to kill them and let the legit racers win, it makes the game sooo much fun :3

Mario Kart is a racing game and like any other it's about facing off ppl and trying to claim 1st with your skills all that went to hell with the Hackers.
    Except, Mario Kart isn't 100% skill. With or without hackers, skill isn't all it takes to win. You need luck too.
    Also, the game didn't have to be ruined for you so easily either. You could have traded friend codes online to eliminate the hackers.

    That's the best forum I know for Mario Kart Wii. They also cover Mario Kart 7, though I'm not sure it's to the same extent.
    If you want to play an online game a certain way, then it's best that you play in friend matches.
    If a game only offers random matches, then you're out of luck.
    I can understand your frustration, but the problem is easily managed.
    The Wii was all about Friend Codes, so you could have exchanged those on your Wii games to avoid problem users.
    I respect your opinion, yet I don't think what you stated was primarily a Homebrew problem.

    Also, some people enjoy playing FTL hackers. The game can get dull.

    Well it all depends you see i have a large history of games that has been ruined thanks to ppl cheating... Ragnarok online, Counter Strike, Starcraft, Warcraft, black ops, i do agree with you that mario kart ain't 100% skills but still you have to remember that the hacks are not available to everyone it's not like you go online and a window pops up asking you if you want to cheat and get free blue shells etc, there are ppl that don't want to hack their wiis so why do i have to play with ppl messing up my online experience by cheating? The idea is everyone being in the same ground with the same chances and same opportunities.

    Sony and Microsoft fight over who's boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is all about having fun with them.

    Sorry to hear that. Could you post some examples where hacking was shutdown? Nintendo system updates didn't prevent the hacking, neither did banning reported hackers. I'm not sure you can eliminate hackers. In this world, getting rid of the bad guys is usually tough if not impossible. The same goes for online gaming. Hackers eventually find their way around things. Nintendo won't be able to eliminate hackers. I imagine there are 100s of people on the internet who would be willing to add you and have matches. You've just got to make it known that you want to play the game the way it was designed. I know you might not always have this option, but with the Wii you usually did.

    It shouldn't be up to the standard users to make private matches, if cheaters want to cheat then they should be the ones making their own private lobby and hack and cheat to their hearts content, but going into a public lobby and cheating is down right no skill trolling and they should be perma banned, your trying to justify something that in my opinion is stealing, as your stealing the standard game experience from the users something they paid to enjoy.
    Unlike over half the hackers who pirate the game and use USB loaders to play their torrent downloaded games, some people have paid for that experience that hackers are getting for free and obviously they don't have the same emotional connection to the game so it's less important to them so they cheat and steal the bought and paid for customers good experience away from them.

    It shouldn't be up to non hackers to avoid hackers, they should just be banned.

    I agree. But stop whining about hackers and start whining about Nintendo not have the care or the skill to deal with those hackers.

    Nintendo should hack their own system and see what they can do with it. There are alot of Nintendo technicians that are very good.

    It was kinda a Nintendo rant too, problem is I've ranted about Nintendo's weaknesses here before, it doesn't go down well as there are many elist strictly Nintendo only gamers on this forum.

    Somebody just tipped me one of the main reason to run homebrew is to remove the region locking from your Wii U. This would allow you to play a game that only released in Europe, on your US Wii U.

    The real advantage is that I have a Wii U now, and I don't have a Wii. I don't want to have to reboot to Wii mode just to run a homebrew that doesn't have HD possibilities.

I use homebrew on the wii to listen to my mp3s, watch my movies, and play old school games on a nintendo console instead of a computer.
    Exactly. I would only use Homebrew to add functionality that isn't available any other way. I would never use it for pirating. I used Wii homebrew mainly for the media player.

    depends on if it can even read them due to the reader being hardcoded.

    On xbox you cannot play online on an rgh or jtag console fact. (You could play only if you were on firmware 14717 but it got updated and you cannot play anymore and that's that).

    On PS3 you could play when there was the 3.55CFW with rebug psn, but only for a limited time because sony updated the psn keys, and know it's only a month that psn got cracked again and we have 4.30 firmwares.

    So i really dont get how you play online on both consoles, especially on xbox. I really want you to tell me.

    I get that, but when most of the same hacks work in wii mode on the wii u, I am willing to bet the code still works and they will find a way to patch it over to the Wii U once we get that hacked.

    See, and I'd wager they use a different system for decoding Wii U discs. The technology is different. Perhaps I'm naive, but it seems to me they would formulate a new codec system for their new releases....

    Hackers are super smart and will find a way to crack new codecs. It isn't like Nintendo has some technology nobody has ever seen before or heard of. Other consoles that have gotten homebrew such as the PS3 got their region locking removed as well via homebrew. I think you are underplaying the hackers and overestimating Nintendo.

    Your original statement wasn't that it COULD be hacked...of course it can be hacked. Your original statement was that the original methodology for region unlocking a Wii would work for the Wii U.

    If they were that concerned with hacking, why not patch the old exploits before the Wii U came out? I can't go into much detail on this so sorry if I am being a bit cryptic.

    Because they don't care about the Wii exploits, they are on to a new generation of system. The revenue stream from Wii game sales is dwindling. Why fret over patching exploits for games that can be emulated now, or already have tens of thousands of hacked consoles that can run them already? Its a waste of time. Better to focus on future updates. I understand exactly what you are talking about...but honestly, Wii hacking is the least of their concerns. Do you think it was coincidence that the Wii games are run from a separate dashboard?
