A new Nintendo Wii exploit was found in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
To quote Xuzz149
, via YouTube: DON'T NAME THIS EXPLOIT! LEAVE THAT TO COMEX!
Exploit by comex, ELF loading code by Team Twiizers. Bug used was discovered by svpe.
This exploit exploits a vulnerability in SSBB's stage builder code to run arbitrary homebrew code. Currently it will load an elf file from /boot.elf on the SD card.
This exploit differs from others in the fact that it is quite difficult for Nintendo to patch. There is no method on the Wii for patching games, and as this exploit does not go through the System Menu, it can not be patched by Nintendo at this time.
Join us in #usbgecko on EFNet (irc.efnet.net) to discuss! Release is when its done (aka: soon).
All you have to do to use this exploit is delete all custom stages on your Wii, then copy over the file. When you etner the Stage Builder menu, it will automatically run /boot.elf on SD. More PlayStation 3 News...
