"In theory, the firmware on the drive can be rewritten with a new, secured version via a Wii U system update and thus nullify the device, but the question is how the Wii Key team reverse-engineered the system in the first place," he added.

Unless Nintendo finds out what the Wii Key group used as an exploit, additional hackers could issue a system update for their own hardware and "piracy will continue with barely a pause" as described by Leadbetter.

If you are experiencing this, try setting the archive bit for the file - in Windows this can be either be done from the file's properties dialog (right click on it in Windows Explorer and check the box) or from the command line using "attrib a ". Otherwise, load the only "Twilight Hack" save game. Extract your Mod Pack to sd:\ Download Extract to sd:\ Overwrite files if asked After doing that then this should be the structure of your SD card : (sd:\CIOS-PACK.md5 sd:\Mod Pack-****-*.md5 sd:\IOS Update.md5 sd:\sd:\sd:\hacks_sd:\sd:\USBLoader sd:\bootmii sd:\apps sd:\apps\ARCmod06_Offline\sd:\apps\Home Brew Channel Loader\sd:\apps\MMM\sd:\apps\priiloader\sd:\wad\!!!

The main reason why I made this instructable is because when I read the website and tried hacking my Wii 4.3, it was really hard because all the info was on different places and not arranged, and some info was missing, and there were no images, and the info was in very complicated english...

so I thought I would make this ible to help others not to suffer the way I did while hacking my wii!

Also make sure your Wii is connected to the internet and do not use Wii to update when it asks you to after connecting to the internet. I cannot get my MAC address and I am not connected to the internet. Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that Nintendo Wii is a great media Player.

Once you put the SD in your Wii, it's a good idea to restart it and try checking your mailbox again. Anyway, in trying to fix the menu, I got hold of Epic Mickey which ran an update. If you want to access Netflix and other streaming stations on your Nintendo Wii you can use Uno Telly as I do to get around the geo block.

If you are using System Menu 3.4, you must immediately put the Twilight Hack to use. Download the Hack Mii installer You can use the mac address to build a custom hackmii installer at Letter Bomb MAKE SURE YOU SELECT YOUR REGION up top If you get the captcha wrong, it will RESET your region. If you do, the installer, well, in my case hung the wii. Errors = Bad News, so try again After that is done, now comes that most important step in this whole process : If a wad fails to install, try to install that wad again.

Turning off or running some other channel or game will have the System Menu delete the savegame again, and you'll have to start over. If the wad still fails, press B to go back to the main menu, select reload ios, reload ios236, then try to install the wad that is giving you trouble again.

"This looks like a variation on the optical drive emulators that appeared first on Xbox 360 - where the drive firmware was easily decrypted - and then latterly on PS3, which was much more of an effort to reverse-engineer," said Digital Foundry's Richard Leadbetter.
