In a surprising move, Team Twiizers today announced they have developed their own exploit for the Wii game, Lego Star Wars.
Some of you may have heard Giantpune (who brought us homebrew apps like USB Loader GX and PunEmu) has been developing his own hack, Jabba the Haxx, and is currently working out hacks for all versions in all regions. Well, it looks like Team Twiizers has come out ahead of the game yet again and has already managed to do so.

Recently, news has spread of a Lego Star Wars exploit for the Wii. After last week’s Bathaxx release there wasn’t much rush to get our LSW exploit out there but it seems the cat is out of the bag. Releasing our own version now would make more sense than waiting or not releasing at all. No disrespect is meant towards the person who worked on the LSW exploit that has been making the rounds on news sites, but we figured it wouldn’t hurt to share what we’ve created.
This exploit works on the original Lego Star Wars game as well as the newer (1.01) release (NTSC and PAL) all through one masterfully crafted save.
Thanks goes out to lewurm for fine-tuning all code and testing the PAL region save and of course Team Twiizers for initial LIJ source.
[segher: And of course, thanks to roto for doing all the heavy lifting for this exploit! And to drmr for the awesome graphics.]
Have a look at the source code, or download the binary.
As always, be sure to read the license before redistributing the binary: it’s GPL, you are not allowed to distribute without also giving out the source code. So please don’t.

Nice!! one file to rule them all!
Respect to giantpune for keeping up the good work.
and all of TT of course
Wow, team twiizers released two exploits in less than a week(bathaxx and now this)
now all we need is a 4.3 gameless (read bannerbomb/etc) exploit....
All I can say is,Team Twiizers
"Absolutely. Still amazes me how much effort these guys put into making the homebrew experience what it is for the Wii." Ithian I could not agree more with this statement. To put so much effort into a what now is an old console. Just hope when WiiHD or Wii2 comes out they keep up the work. I just wish someone would invent a stable way to usb load to a Xbox 360.
