Basically, with so much already known about the inner workings of a wii by the community. I just wonder why this hasn't been done already. This post may be totally naive, but I just was wondering what people's thoughts were on why this would or would not be possible, or desired by homebrew users. I mean the possibilities are endless once the complete control of it is implemented. Anyway, it's just talk and I in no way am capable of undertaking a project of that kind of magnitude whatsoever. So, does something like this already exist? Would you want it to? Can it exist? Why or why not?
This could actually help nintendo in that they will have created the most hackable console ever, making it very desirable to some.
I hope I haven't broken any rules with this post. I love this place. I just thought this would be an interesting topic.

    Ninty have already made he most hackable console, and in a way they don't really want to sop it completely. How many people have purchased a Wii knowing they can be hacked?
    I see what you are getting at here, introducing a whole new set up, unfortunately to produce a whole new operating system would take years of testing. Look how much time and money ninty would have spent making the wii system.
    Nice idea though, but since the system is still so easily hackable, I doubt it will ever happen.

    sounds like a cool idea. not sure i would want it. i'm pleased with the current setup. there are ways to create new channels (sure you knew that already) to me though, i'm happy with the wii i bought (for my wife) knowing i was going to hack and run media, emulators and backups. it out there so why not lol. it's just another step hitting the hbc then you app of choice. personally if i had the ability/knowledge i wouldn't mess with it. interesting topic though.

    Great idea crimghost, but has the m8's said it would take years to test, money etc. on the other hand, I would love someone to come up with something likes this, this would be the icing on the cake, HBC is king, I think it is a wounderful app.. the guys who came up with this are (in my eyes) gods..

    thats a thought but if someone did that what fun would you have hacking your wii,but it would be cool to have that available.
