Has the Nintendo Wii been hacked?

Nintendo-Scene.com is reporting of an interesting presentation that took place at the 24th Annual Chaos Communication Congress (24C3) right now; it would appear that a fully hacked Wii capable of running native homebrew with full hardware access has been presented.


From the report:


The guys over at 24C3 just demoed a Wii hack that is set to provide native Wii

homebrew in the near future (not running in GC mode, and with full access to all the Wii hardware!)


They were able to find encryption and decryption keys by doing full memory

dumps at runtime over a custom serial interface. Using these keys, they were

able to create a Wii ‘game’ that ran their own code (their demo happened to show live sensor/Wiimote information, amongst a few other things).


Someone was able to start Homebrew in Wii-Mode. The video [in English] is from a hackers event in Germany. It’s mainly about the xbox 360, but at the end they speak about wii and show own Code injected in Lego Star Wars. More information: wii homebrew.
