    HBC release for a new Wii U

    Another year, another console, another Hackmii Installer!
    Despite all of the anti-reverse-engineering tricks we put into our last installment of the HackMii Installer, Nintendo managed to find the IOS exploit we used to install The Homebrew Channel and fix it sometime within the last two years. There never was a Wii system update for this, the fixed IOS versions can only be found on a Wii U.

    They also blocked our old title ID. Consequently, we have a new release with a new version of The Homebrew Channel; this will install on both Wii consoles, and inside the virtual Wii sandbox inside the Wii U. The currently used IOS exploit is courtesy of tueidj.
    Please note that this is not running in full Wii U mode; running this on a Wii U will probably work just like on a Wii. (See if you can find any differences, we can all try to hack the Wii U together from inside Wii mode!)

    Also, due to technical limitations of the virtual Wii mode, BootMii will not work on a Wii U. If we are able to resolve this, we will make a new release with BootMii support.

    As usual, grab the new installer here.

    If you’re unsure what do to with the installer, see this wiki page for a general tutorial on how to setup homebrew on your Wii, and this one at the brand new wiiubrew.org for savegame exploits that still work on a Wii U.

    Yeah, had one on pre-order. But cancelled it
    because price wars have started already over
    here. The premium pack was $428 AUS at
    release, but now it's already down to $378
    at some stores.

    Just waiting to see if there's anymore movement
    on price lol. But reading the Op makes me wanna
    run out now and get one lol.

    I would still love to see someone run a FULL portscan and possibly a wireshark scan on one of these while it's talking to Nintendo. Also, I'm sure this is a dumb question but does the WiiU use UPnP?

    Strange, the HBC didn't ask me to update it. I guess I'll have to do this manually.Sent from my Nintendo Wii using the Internet Channel.
