    The picture also includes images of the R/W adapter

    Due to the fact their picture is over 8700 pixels in length, click on the shorten thumbnail below to view it fully.

    Also it seems TX is working on small adapter to make the job easier for everyone, here is picture of it in action:

    I have to be honest, I don't understand why is everyone so excited about this.

    Dumping NAND is not a big deal. Hook up any old cheap NAND dumper, dump NAND, done. Figuring out where the connection points are is easy if you can read a map and have even the most simplistic understanding of electronics. You can dump the NAND, Flash, Rom, Prom, Eprom, EEprom in anything with nary any effort or expense at all. That has never been an issue. The issue is what can you do with the data. And as of now, being encrypted and all, that is absolutely nothing. Until there is an exploit found where unsigned code can be made to run on a console running in it's native state, there will be no way to extrapolate the encryption on a general level applicable to all consoles.

    What I personally find "interesting" (and by interesting, I mean exploitatively disturbing) is they are already working on making hardware to sell for making it easier for the end user to do something that serves no point at this time, and depending on the level of security, may never serve any point (and don't say 'never say never', because the WiiMini has pretty much shown that 'never' can be said.)

    This can be useful for when M$ decides to re-activate all the DRM they claim to have taken out right? :p I heard Sony has the same thing but that goes without saying since they have patented it in the PS3 years. I remember reading about that ages ago on Maxconsole or some similar news site.
