We've seen some fairly significant developments on the Wii homebrew front as of late, and it looks like you can now chalk up yet another milestone, as an exploit has reportedly been discovered that lets the console run homebrew without a modchip. To do that, however, you'll apparently need a copy of Zelda: Twilight Princess (hardly a problem for most) and a willingness to take some risks, as the exploit in question takes the rather unelegant approach of crashing the Wii before letting you run your own code. Details on exactly how to exploit the exploit also seem to be a bit hard to follow at the moment, but you can hit up the link below if you want to get started.
