ARSC Hacks Blog

Keeping you updated on the Wii and DS homebrew scene! And now the DSi!

There was an error in this gadget

If any of you need to be on YouTube, Facebook, or any site that is blocked on your school, I've made a proxy you can use to browse the web anonymously! I uploaded it to the main site: http://www.arschacks.com/proxy. Everything should be working, you can log in and everything. If some java or flash doesn't work on a certain site, it must be because your school computers suck or you just need to install another browser (ie: Firefox, Chrome).

Finally! The main site works after about a month or so. Ironically I'm hosting it with the first service I had in the beginning. :P
Anyway, glad that that's working. Now, to some bad news. The forums have DIED. :( I guess I will be active on them more during the end of the school year or the summer. That's a time when most of us are either more bored than usual or have more free time. Well I do anyways. So yeah. I'll be advertising them and more active on them during that time. We'll see how things go.

The main site is down... I'm trying to change the nameservers with my domain provider to change it back again so I'll post a new blog post when it works again. In the meantime, sign up to my forums: http://www.arschacks.freeforums.org

Just a quick update. I finally installed a "toolbar" on all of the parts of the site. Check it out (it should appear on your browser below.
It was pretty easy to install and if you have a website/blog you should get it from here: [link].

Version 0.8 of the homebrew channel and beta 6 of bootmii has been released! Here are the new features:
- Homebrew Channel has USB 2.0 support. If you have a version below 4.3 and want USB 2.0 support, go into the homebrew browser, Utilities, then download the IOS58 installer. If you don't have internet access on your Wii then here is the installer's wiki page: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/IOS58_Installer
- General Bug fixes to Bootmii.

ALSO If you didn't know, you can add themes to your Homebrew Channel: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel/Themes

Btw, I'm going to try to write more interesting posts and not be all nerdy and technical all the time... Lol.

Hey guys! Here's a video (part one) of the fourth Mario Kart Wii tournament ARSC has hosted. In my opinion, this one was the funnest since we talked through skype. :)
If you want to be notified of upcoming tournaments, sign up on our forums: http://www.arschacks.com/forums

Ok it's been confirmed. Smash Stack doesn't work, the wiki page is apparently misleading. What you can do now is two things: Either try Indiana Pwns or WAIT PATIENTLY until an exploit is found. I will be one of the first to know and will make a tutorial as QUICKLY as I can. People just be patient...

I am sorry to say that the forums will be down for about a week or so. I am trying to find another webhost that can support the forums and the site. For now, the site will be hosted with my domain provider. I have everything backed up so it isn't really a problem. I just need to find a better webhost. So in the meantime, the only thing available is the actual site and blog. Sorry for the inconvinience.

Well that didn't take long at all! The site and it's forums are now working. :D

My web host provider is having some problems with the web and MySQL servers and so the website is temporarily down. I have contacted them already and they said that the problem is not serious and they will be able to fix it soon (within 2 - 3 days or sooner). So there is nothing to worry about, I have the site and forums backed up. All we need is patience. Sorry for the inconvenience guys.

Hackers at Wiiso.com have joined together and formed a custom game development team to do remakes and texture edits of games. This game that I am featuring here is a remake of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It will be texture edited with remakes of all the levels in Super Mario Bros. for the original NES, wii-style!

Due to the massive amount of spam the board keeps getting, I have decided to tighten the security. Therefore, I will disable the board for 1-2 days. In the meantime, If you have any questions or concerns, e-mail me at: dshacker14@yahoo.com
I will also need to appoint one or two moderators that can help around the forums. If you would like to apply, e-mail me at dshacker14@yahoo.com and tell me why you would be helpful as a mod.

SnacksVideos is ripping the AC:CF complete soundtrack! For more details check out these links:

They are honestly the BEST QUALITY rips for AC:CF I've heard! They're in .mp3 files (350kbps) and they can sync perfectly on any iPod :3




The ARSCHacks Forums are now live! Go check them out here: http://arschacks.com/forums
I hope everyone signs up and takes advantage of the fact that this will be the best way to contact me, the site moderators and VIP members.



So this is the newest video I've made. It's about getting free Gamecube Games and playing them on your Wii!
-----------------------
I've been told that It looks proffesional and such and I agree. :P It's actually my first video that has voice (Thanks to Samsome000) and It's probably the most "noob-friendly".

This needs more attention.

Asiekierka has modded WB3000's Common Key Bruteforcer to make it use Distributed Computing, as in every computer tries a selected part of the nearly infinite combinations! If you join, you make the process go faster! Add more computer's for more speed!

THE MORE PC's RUN THIS, THE FASTER DSi HOMEBREW WILL HAPPEN.

- Download it and run the EXE. It works on Linux and anything with Mono, too!


- If you exit the app in the middle of work, don't worry! The block you've been processsing is stored and will be taken on by someone else! It just makes it go a bit slower.

Woot! ARSCHacks.com is finally back! After searching and searching for a perfect web host with 99.9% of server uptime I FINALLY found one! However, I'm very sorry for the inconvenience of having the site down for 3 weeks or so. Because of this I was unable to make videos. Thankfully now that that problem is solved I can finally get to the EPIC video ideas I have planned.

Important news:
As of now (Feb. 4, '10) I have a Wii hacking tutorial 96% finished and it should be uploaded in a day or so. It will be my first video to have VOICE! So I'm very exited :) After that video is released, I will start making the next videos I have planned, which I think you will enjoy ;)

Thank you for everyone that subscribed to me in the past year! If you don't already know, I started 2010 by hitting the 1,000 subscriber milestone! So I'm hoping for the best this year :)

Yes, the site is down. I don't know how long it will be down but the crappy web host I'm using is just failing right now. I am doing everything I can to find another decent web host that doesn't have frequent server downtimes...

If anyone knows any web hosts with MySQL and cPanel support, please let me now. Sorry for the inconvinience. For now, ArscHacks.com is on pause.
