@Hykem has revealed some information on an upcoming Wii U release/exploit, here is a quote from his post on GBATemp:
The following statements are facts:
– I have successfully compromised the Wii U’s IOSU;
– The exploit being used works from 2.0.0 up to 5.5.0, but it obviously needs to be ported for each firmware;
– The exploit doesn’t need PPC kernel access, so the new kernel exploit won’t have to be released.
I want to do some kind of Christmas surprise yes, but take that with a grain of salt. I can’t promise I will have the time to get everything ready by then and I’m not disclosing what will be released.
Keep in mind that releasing the exploit “as-is” is pointless, so it will have to be ported first and most likely obfuscated so it will take a little longer to patch. It’s also worth noting that I will have to develop an easy way to block updates so no one updates past 5.5.0 by accident.
