218w ago - Comex released today BannerBomb v2 for the Wii System Menu 4.2. From what I have read, it works great on 4.2 E/U Firmware. But give a try for yourself and let us know your experience with it.
To quote: I can't get enough of a sample size on IRC, maybe he can help. This version is for 4.2 only, any region. I'm have absolutely no idea how consistently it will work, but I'd appreciate if you'd test it whether or not you already have homebrew.
Actually, they didn't even try to fix the actual exploit. The only change was that the size of banners in saved channels is now limited to 100 kilobytes. After several months, that's their "fix".
Still, it means that the 400kish nop sled in bannerbomb can't fit anymore; I think the SD menu is somewhat more reliable than data management with respect to memory addresses, but not sure yet.
For this version, instead of Data Management, you must use the SD menu.
219w ago - We've previously covered the WODE which is set to revolutionize the Nintendo Wii modification scene.
USB Loaders have their downfalls as they don't boast 100% compatibility and are limited to the WBFS a file system designed for the loaders.
The WODE is a totally hardware based solution that comes with the compatibility and reliability of a modchip - something you can't get with software loaders. Anyway, the WODE Team have just launched a Web site for their upcoming modification.
It doesn't reveal much, but the opening animation is interesting. It seems the stand for the Wii houses a port and the intro shows it using a USB hard drive or an Ethernet card. That totally got my attention.
To quote: WODE will include a Flatmod type mainboard that attaches (solderless) to the Wii drive cable similar to other available chips.
It also comes with it's own vertical stand that harnesses a slave board with built-in LCD, USB, and SD slot. The SD card is used to house the powerful Linux-based WODE software.
WODE is compatible with WII DMS, D2B, D2A, D2C, D2C2, D3, D3-2 boards. The OS is LINUX and allow to manage WIFi connection and many...

223w ago - The kind people of team D2SUN (linked above) have sent out some samples of the new Nintendo Wii SunDisk Chip for testing.
After testing this chip out I have to say that there is not much more one could even expect out of a drive chip.
Some high points:
• Chip comes retail packaged nicely.
• Quality of the pcb is excellent.
• Chip is large but fit's perfectly under the drive when placed correctly.
• So much more than just a drive chip, having the ability to dump disks directly to the onboard nand, copy .iso from pc to chip and vice versa, and loading them from the chip effectively emulating the drive all together.
It almost seems that the only thing it cannot do is play the game for you
Here is the feature list followed by some pics!
The SUNDISK final SPEC:
• plug and play,100% solderless
• come with A.I. Boot to auto choose region, support JAP/USA/KOR/EUR all regions perfectly,100% smart and play & play!

• support D5/D9 games
