Wii U is hacked "We have everything needed for a next-gen key"


 Wii U is hacked "We have everything needed for a next-gen key"
topic by Da Ill One - 04-30-2013, 07:37 AM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


A team of console hackers, previously responsible for a custom chip that circumvents security protocols on Wii, have claimed they are able to design a similar key for Wii U.

The hackers say they have "completely reversed the Wii U drive authentication, disk encryption, file system, and everything else needed for this next generation key".
Though it appears that the group has designed a hardware chip, the complexities of modding a console raises questions about the claim that it has fully hacked the Wii U.

Other questions, such as whether the mod will survive an official system update, or if the modded system could run back-up games, remain unanswered.

The group, which CVG has decided against identifying, has yet to provide verifiable evidence that it has hacked the Wii U, though it is responsible for one of the many Wii mod keys available.

Hacks of this nature could test Nintendo's expertise and will in overcoming piracy.

The legal issues surrounding modding consoles are particularly complex due to differences in international law.

In the modern age, console manufacturers tend to battle piracy by offering valuable online services that hacked systems tend to be stranded from. The capacity of Wii U discs - at 25 gigs per layer - is also a deterrent for piracy.

CVG has contacted Nintendo for comment.

Just to clarify because the WiiKey team aren't making it very clear (why would they? Any publicity is good publicity). This isn't a Wii U OS hack, it won't enable homebrew, mods/cheating, region free or anything fun like that. The*only*thing it enables is the playing of copies of disks because it's effectively a "drive emulator"Drive emulation is a tough cookie to f!ght against, it's also used for the 360key, Wode and Xode (and probably others). Basically you emulate the disk drive and redirect all the calls to a USB drive instead. However because the drives are going to have significantly different timings and thresholds, that's a possible vector of attack for Nintendo - just make games check for known jitter or timings, preferably game specific or constantly updated... Similar to how the later waves on the 360 worked. It won't stop piracy because you could always update the drive emulator with new patches, but it could make it a big enough pain in the arse to put most people off.



nvm
