Wabtris v1.0 (ISO) (Wii Game)

It seems Team Wab, were releasing a native Wii homebrew, in fact the first native Wii homebrew game ever. It’s called Wabtris and uses ripped graphics from a Playstation 1 game.

The download seems to be currently down.

PDRoms note: As the download does not work, some people are already talking about a fake release. We all shouldn’t be too excited, unless the real proof is given.

Release notes:

Wab is really proud to bring you the first and only Real WII Homebrew.
This release is called WABTRIS, a small tetris cover, WIIMOTE powered !!!
Stay tunned for the soon coming source code of it…

you just have to decompress, burn the iso, and boot it with ANY modchiped WII, and follow the instructions.
remember this is an “autobootable” dvd image, so you won’t go to channel menu !

Special thx to “PissProduction” (all graphics and musics are ripped from their MARVELLOUS game WARTRIS on playstation 1) – Greetings : Crediar, AloneTrio, segher, bLAStY, etc… from #wiidev@efnet

The Wii, officially “hacked”? (Wii misc)

This article has been taken from Wiinintendo.NET and is not property of PDRoms!

Nintendo-Scene.com is reporting of an interesting presentation that took place at the 24th Annual Chaos Communication Congress (24C3) right now; it would appear that a fully hacked Wii capable of running native homebrew with full hardware access has been presented.

The guys over at 24C3 just demoed a Wii hack that is set to provide native Wii homebrew in the near future (not running in GC mode, and with full access to all the Wii hardware!)

They were able to find encryption and decryption keys by doing full memory dumps at runtime over a custom serial interface. Using these keys, they were able to create a Wii ‘game’ that ran their own code (their demo happened to show live sensor/Wiimote information, amongst a few other things).

Someone was able to start Homebrew in Wii-Mode. The video [in English] is from a hackers event in Germany. It’s mainly about the xbox 360, but at the end they speak about wii and show own Code injected in Lego Star Wars. More information: wii homebrew.

ԉ۪ll keep this post updated as more news/images/video come in.

Update – View the video on YouTube

Update 2 – (From GBATemp forums) There is a “Lightning Talk” with the topic “Console Hacking: State of the Wii” by Ben Byer+others on, Sun, 17:15–19:30, this is central European time (I think) and there is a live stream:

Thanks to http://www.tehskeen.com for the hint.

It seems some group of coders were able to hack the Wii and run native code on it, thanks to MK2k for the video. Unfortunatly he did not mention any source along with this.
