Hacker Releases Wii U Homebrew Exploit Teaser

Will the latest Nintendo released console be the first next-generation console to be exploited by hackers? It seems like the end of the tunnel might be approaching faster than ever. Indeed, a few days after the Mario Kart 8 Map Hack videos released by some hackers, there is another hacker going by the name of "garyopa" that released a picture of a Wii U GamePad running unsigned code.

o no nintendo am doom

Seriously, though, this is a flamebait article. These hackers found an exploit in the Wii U browser and managed to get a message to pop up in the browser, they're not anywhere close to making a homebrew channel yet. It's a browser exploit, that's all.

Did you forget last gen? Not only homebrew was made, they made a fully working & fast Wii emulator for PC during Wii's best days.

Th4Freak1929d ago

Uhmm, no. Its not a message in the browser, they're able to run unsigned code with it and it seems that its a kernel exploit.

So long story short, if this is actually true, the Wii U is the hackers bitch.

This. These are the first steps into getting the Wii U exploited and when there is a kernel exploit, then we'll be able to pirate and play.

If you look at the hacker's website, they themselves did state that they're not anywhere close to making a homebrew application (right now), but they are progressing towards it.

That's how it all starts.

MasterCornholio1929d ago

Dang that's pretty bad.


I never like it when a system gets hacked.

"We Do do not encourage piracy, we are only giving news"

Lol if that's not the biggest understatement i don't know what is. Just by posing this crap you are encouraging it idiots, and what exactly are normal people going to be able to do about it anyway???......people just keep getting dumber and dumber.

If you own the game already it's technically legal. :D

wonderfulmonkeyman1929d ago

And how many people will actually own all of the games they'll hack into their Wii U, if that comes to pass without patches?
Yeah, thought so. Minority figures.

Codewow1929d ago

The amount of people risking their system for it is so small that the devs wouldn't even see a hit anyways.

FlyingFoxy1929d ago

The only reason i'd want homebrew is to run emulators on the Wii U gamepad, should be pretty sweet with off TV play.

Plus, should be the first console to run Dreamcast games etc.. full speed, even though PC's been able to do that for like 7-8 years.

Sounds great if an emu is in the works, so we'll be getting access to more games.
