Should be interesting to see what they've actually done. I'm a bit baffled since no one has leaked any dumps, or methods to make dumps/etc.

From what I understand, they didn't hack the Wii U. They hacked the drive. All software related things like region lock will still be intact.

Edit: I just noticed they have updated their website.
A few lines of code...

"Nintendo is aware that a hacking group claims to have compromised Wii U security," a spokesperson told Eurogamer. "However, we have no reports of illegal Wii U games nor unauthorized applications playable on the system while in Wii U mode."

What is it? Hexadecimal code from a Wii U game?

My guess is that it's the common key.
Not huge if they have it. The wii was hacked with a combination of common key and other exploits. (strncmp)
Still, if that's legit, they are further along than any other group out there.

WUP-P-ARPP-00-101EUR-2 is the hex converted, My guess it's an ID of a game they dumped.

fail0verflow has full access to the wiiU system since February but until now he hasnt released anything. I think he will wait until someone wants to do some profits with modchips or anything and then he will release a open source solution.
