@SciresM - Our switch 'emulator' (for debugging/RE) is now public - huge kudos to @daeken who's a wizard!

With that simple Tweet above from @SciresM, he set the Switch scene on fire, with the words 'Switch Emulator', but don't be fooled, this will NEVER play games, it just is basically a cpu line-by-line microcode emulator to allow for other scene developers to run Switch sysmodules, step-thru-code, and test out exploits, and see what is occurring on a very deep micro level, without the need of running it on actual hardware, basically full real-time-debugging, with all the data you wish for and much more, plus total single-step code execution.

Possible WebHack Work-Around For The v5.5.2 Blocking Added By Big N' Has Now Been Released By Scene Developers!

Recently, Nintendo decided after a long pause, to update the firmware on their Wii U consoles, and sadly v5.5.2 blocks the 'WebHack' exploit used to installed 'Homebrew Launcher' and 'HaxChi', and current work arounds require you to have 'special eeprom backups' from v5.5.1 or earlier, so only useful for those that did and for some reason updated their consoles, but now a possible new WebHack entry point has been discovered, and scene developers have released their current progress as 'unstable beta' test tools to gather data on feedback and improve them, it may never become as 'stable' as previous releases, but at least it is way in for now until the so called 'CrunchyRoll' app exploit is released, which will really be nice boom to the Wii U scene when it does finally become public for all to...

SaveMii.png
GabyPCgeeK has yet again updated the original Savemii by Ryuzaki-MrL with number of neat new features and changes.

SaveMii, is originally a homebrew developed by the Brazilian Ryuzaki_MrL and which allows to make a backup / restoration of your backups. You must first run IOSUhax and CFW Mocha to make this homebrew work, and then you can archive your Wii U and vWii backups to SD card.

With the modified versions of GabyPCgeeK the development is more advanced and the functions more numerous. In the latter version, it is possible, for example, to perform operations on several backups, and it is possible to add the icon of the game, the backups are better achieved by using the Unicode which is supported and which allows Display symbols and special characters correctly.

Useful for those stuck on v5.5.2, but have 'backups' from their v5.5.1 or earlier consoles

As you all know by now, Nintendo released v5.5.2 for their abandoned Wii U console, which stop some major exploits, but no problem if you have updated by mistake, and have key backups like your 'SEEPROM' files, then you can get back to enjoying your modded console, very easy, as earlier this weekend, 'Dimok' has returned to the scene and released WiiU WFS USB Block Injector and now EyeKey has released a patched 'HaxChi PC Installer' that can run on v5.5.2 as long as you have the needed 'backup' files to complete the installation using the new 'USB Injector' hack.

@modrobert writes: "dimok has posted a brief tutorial and coded Linux tools to inject WFS blocks via USB over at gbatemp.net. This is primarily for those who updated to firmware 5.5.2 by mistake and are interested in restoring HBL or haxchi on their Wii U. I have uploaded a complete pack with a save exploit here. The procedure is pretty advanced, and the tools are compiled for a Linux (32bit) system, to use on Windows (or Mac) you need to compile/port the source code yourself. This also requires an SEEPROM dump from the target console."
