Video: Galaxii Overflow Nintendo Wii Exploit Preview

50°
289w ago - Today hetoan2 has just released a preview video of his new Nintendo Wii Galaxii Overflow exploit.

To quote: This new wii exploit allows code to be executed by the game. I showed this before loading a level in an earlier video.

Now I have a code that loads a boot.elf from the root of the SD card. This is done by an anomaly in the game which has the game storing data in a buffer area, the data overflows and overwrites adjacent memory.

In this case It allows a modified save to run code, unfortunately, playing on this save file can easily mess with the code due to where the code is loaded from.





The exploit is also very dangerous as turning off during the underlying NAND processes can cause bricks. The only way to get the code to execute is to preform the glitch. It's not easy to do.

Once this is perfected so that it is easier to do and is safer it will be released. Until then enjoy.

THQ Ships Gold-plated Nintendo Wii to the Queen of England

400°
292w ago - The Nintendo Wii has positioned itself as the gaming console for everybody. As it turns out, that includes the Queen of England.

Well, sort of. It's not like Her Royal Highness went down to Wal-Mart and bought one with her summer job savings. Rather, she was given a special version by gaming company THQ.

To quote: Buckingham Palace will be getting a special delivery today as THQ plans to deliver a golden Wii earmarked for the Queen.

The pack will also include a copy of the newly released BIG Family Games, as Philip, Charles and the rest of the royal gang compete for the living room crown.

The publisher hopes the PR stunt will amuse Queen Elizabeth, though we hope the 83-year old monarch doesn't throw her arm out swinging the console's presumably heavier gold-plated remote.
