We I got some awesome WiiU hacking news for you.
It seems that Twi has put another quick video out, informing us of a kernel exploit that is 100% reliable because it does not rely on a race attack, for those of you who don’t know about race attack it’s the way to run a kernel exploit on the Wii U. The hack lately has been running it through the browser, click it twice and get it to load the payload.

In Twi video, you can see it running without the need of internet access which for most of us can be extremely helpful but there isn’t much to go on from the video and can only guess what it needs and don’t need. The release of this kernel exploit has not been given yet but I imagine this will be working on most firmware’s when it is released. With the latest v1.2 RC2 of The Homebrew Launcher, that just came out today, we are looking at the ability to run the Homebrew launcher from the 3.0 all the way up to 5.5.x firmware, yet we are still waiting for the payload for 5.5. x.
Doing some testing, making my own custom build, got it down to a measly 2.~KB pic.twitter.com/saqvqPVJ0X
