These are some currently popular questions in the #wiibrew channel. Remember to read the [[Channel FAQ]] before you jump in.
Are we using the SDK? Is there an SDK from Nintendo for Wii development? Is it leaked?===[http://warioworld.com/apply No,] we are using the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source open-source] , freely available [[devkitPro]] and [[libogc]].
Are there any homebrew applications available for the Wii?=== Many applications are available at the [[Homebrew apps]] page.
Will a Wii System Update brick my hacked Wii?=== Probably not, however, you must be careful what hacked programs you run on your Wii as the programs themselves are capable of bricking your Wii.
How do I turn off my Wii if the application does not support the power button/ hangs?=== Hold the power button for 5 seconds until the Wii powers down.
What if the next Wii update patches the Twilight Hack?=== The [[System Menu 3.3]] Update has patched this bug by deleting the corrupt savegames on startup, but the latest release of the Twilight Hack works around it.
The only way to patch [[Twilight Hack]] would be to press new discs or have the system patch the game upon loading it. The likelihood of the former depends on whether or not they intend to keep fixing bugs anyway -- this hack is probably not enough reason for them to restart production of the discs. (That having been said, there are already two different NTSC/US versions of that game, so a third could be released.)
Patching the game while loading is unlikely for a number of boring reasons. It's a lot of work with very little benefit -- until homebrew activities threaten Nintendo 's revenue, don't expect them to expend serious effort to stop it.
What if the next Wii update patches the trucha bug?=== The [[System Menu 3.3]] Update has already patched this bug.
The only way to stop it would be to make sure the Wii menu doesn't update itself. This would require a custom firmware update. A custom firmware update is risky at best to develop, as one mistake could brick your Wii.
What's happening now?=== A lot of people are working on fancy Wii homebrew. Lots of work remains to be done.
For example : * Building a working toolchain environment* Making a working low-level library to access hardware (CPU/GPU/ controllers/USB/Framebuffers and debugging)* Documenting memory maps* Discovering usage of registers for (Audio Interface, Serial Interface, Memory Interface, Video Interface)
* Triggering and setting up interrupt handling
Working on a stable Initial Program Loader* Reverse engineering [[IOS]] and other binary files
===The Fish Disc looks really promising===
