296w ago - Today a new version of the Wii Linux Proof-of-Concept with read and write support for the front SD card slot has been released.
To quote: Thanks to the bits of information collected and made public by the wiibrew.org and libogc communities we have been able to write a block driver to use SD cards through the Nintendo Wii front SD card slot.
The driver provides read /write support and performance is fine (2.1 MB/s reads on my normal SD cards) compared to the classic SD card adapter driver. As in the last posts, we have released a new version of the wii-linux Proof of Concept to show our progress in the kernel side.
296w ago - Last month, Twiizers gave a video demonstration of the ability to launch unofficial applications directly from the Wii channel menu. The homebrew channel demo has now been released to the public, and can be run on any Wii that has the Twilight Hack installed.
Currently, the demo has usage time limit of 10 minutes, and once the channel has expired it cannot be reinstalled... so it's suggested you use the allocated ten minutes wisely.
Installation and usage instructions are provided below:
* Download the installer at the link below.
* Place the installer file on the root of your SD card.
* Rename the file to boot.elf
* Run the Twilight Hack, and allow the installer to load.
* READ THE DISCLAIMER! In the very unlikely case your Wii should be bricked by the installer, this will let you know where you stand in regards to Team Twiizers.
* Press the RESET button on your Wii.
296w ago - Dragula96 has posted a video (below) on YouTube today that demonstrates a PS3 "Hello World" Proof-Of-Concept.
Needless to say, today is the day before April 1st (April Fool's Day), however, dragula96 has been a long-standing contributer of several development boards (including PS2Dev) for several years... so we have opted give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being and dubbed this a "rumor"
He also states he is attempting to get a game of Pong working, and that he will share the method and source code in time.
According to dragula96, this does not require any hardware modification and the method has been tested on a PS3 40GB and 60GB console- both of which have current 2.20 Firmware and are retail models, not development models!
To quote: In the video, you can see some tape on my TV, that is to hide MAC and IP addresses... there are no cuts in video at all.
I have spent somewhere around 9 hours to get this working, and I hope you guys don't think this is a fake.. I have a good reputation in the PSP scene. I would not release something if it was fake (even if it is close to April Fool's Day).
I do not know the extent of which the discovery will let me program, but I seriously...
