    Thanks to the new update SneekyChip can soon run GC backups from USB!

    Specs in first post and site updated with GC backup info and SneekyChannel info.

    Could you back these claims up with some hard evidence?

    There will be videos of SneekyChip in action up soon. The GUI is nowhere near complete as of this post and our channel has only begun development, so the videos that will come soon won't show SneekyControl or SneekyChannel.

    so this requires no hardmod and no softmod? so basically you are selling a SD card. the user gets the sd card, compiles software that is already free, and puts that free software on the (probably overpriced ) sd card? this is on par with the homebrewii and homebreware douchebags that sell other homebrew.

    how much are you going to sell this sd card for? and how much of each purchase is going to be donated to the person who's free software you are profiting from?

    Sounds to me like someone will just get ahold of this software and it will be all over the net in a week.

    this software is already gotten ahold of. it is open source. ive even already made a version that loads the entire nand and games from the usb drive (much faster than the SD card, but still slower than the real nand). and ive already made versions of usb loader GX and wiiflow that interface with it to allow selecting games and what not.

    full usb sneek...
    usb loader GX (sneeky edition)...
    wiiflow (sneeky edition)...

    i don't see what else there is to this package except the sd card

    The price of SneekyChip is being aimed lower than the price of the SD card it will be placed on. Of course this will only be possible via bulk sales, so that remains to be seen. SneekyChip will be donating part of every SneekyChip sold (assuming a profit) to developers whose code is used (even though we are not selling that part of the package itself.) While we can be compared to "douchebags" like homebrewii and homebreware, we don't aim to act like them by simply selling open source or free software in a rar archive and throwing a copy/paste guide in their faces.

    The GUI will be made as secure as possible to prevent this. As will the Channel. The actual backend, however, is free, in source, as giantpune stated above.

    The purchase essentially covers the GUI (which includes a fool-proof compiler), the Channel, and the support (SD card support, and the actual operation of all included software). The software itself will be based on SNEEK, but will have heavy modifications to it's source code.

    For the average user doing something such as installing development tools and downloading source code for compilation can be quite a hassle, and even for coders can take a while. SneekyChip is aimed at automating every aspect of NAND/Drive emulation and competing (feature-wise) with hardmods.

    so how about after you release the software whats to stop me from downloading it and putting it on my own sd card?
    i dont understand fully. this is just a sd card with software on it right? so its still just a softmod.

    It isn't a real softmod. Considering softmods are created to make permanent changes and hardmods are made to make permanent changes, this is more of a "softchip". It's a REAL hot swappable method to a modded Wii and an unmodded Wii, as the "hard"ware part is the SD card that actually allows the "soft"ware to be run. Removing the SD card leaves you back to a normal Wii NAND (except for bootmii or [for newer Wiis] SneekMii, both of which are silent on their own and unnoticeable.) This means you can move the softchip from Wii to Wii, keeping your NAND on it and losing no real time installing or compiling anything. Every Wii is your Wii.

    It can be thought of as a loader, similar to how HBC boots homebrew, SneekyChip is a package, and bootmii/SneekMii are the loaders.
