Digiex publishes easy to follow tutorials for Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo games consoles. Computer help and downloads are provided on our forums.

As you know here at Digiex we like to provide rare content that is often very difficult to find in this day and age, usually this content has been around on the internet at some point, however this one is a little different.

We're hoping to obtain a Pokemon Distribution Cartridge which has used to distribute the Pokemon 10 Year Anniversary Pokemon (10ANNIV) to Gen 3 Pokemon games, these been Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red and Leaf Green.

Anything event related to the GBA Pokemon games these days is extremely rare, and unfortunately not cheap to obtain when things like this surface. However that said were doing a crowdfund with theSlayer, who is know for catalouging and making available Pokemon Gen 6 events for the 3DS. The aim of obtaining one of these rare distribution cartridges, so everyone can obtain these Pokemon in the future.

If you are interested and want to know more then you can read more on the Digiex forums: Pokemon 10ANNIV Distribution Cartridge Crowdfund

Update 24.12.16: The Pokemon 10ANNIV Distribution Cartridge Released thanks to Deoxyz.

It's now possible to start the Wii U Homebrew Channel / Launcher from the Homescreen, thanks to the recently released Haxchi hack by well know 3DS / Wii U hacker smealum.

Interested? if so we've put together a easy to follow tutorial that will take you though the process from start to finish.

The tutorial will teach you how to install a permanent Homebrew Channel icon on your 5.5.1 Wii U. The end result will be you can load the Homebrew Launcher from the Wii U’s home screen, just like any other app or game. The Homebrew Launcher will load first time, every time, unlike the unreliable web browser exploit we have had to use until now.

Note: Updated 1st December 2016 with a much easier tutorial, linked to above.

For fans of the traditional Pokemon 3DS games who are also enjoying Pokemon Go, all your miles (kilometers) of walking to find and hatch Pokemon in the real would could pay off in Pokemon Sun and Moon too.

Junichi Masuda, series producer mentioned earlier this year they were looking in to a way Pokemon Go could interact with the core game series, it looks like that will be a possibility in the future.

One of the met locations on Pokemon Sun / Moon is "Pokemon Go", suggesting something was able to be implemented and it will eventually be possible to import Pokemon from Go, to Sun and Moon. We would presume via Pokebank, which will be updated early next year to allow importing of Pokemon from previous 3DS Pokemon Games and the first generation of Pokemon games released on the Virtual Console earlier this year.

By hex editing your Sun or Moon save game, its possible to view all the in-game met locations for Pokemon, as shown below:


The PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV on firmware 3.60 have been hacked. This is a native hack, meaning it's the actual Vita / PS TV is hacked and not the emulated PSP, meaning any Vita / PlayStation TV currently released to date is now capable of running homebrew.

The new hack, known as "HENKaku", will require the following:

  • A Vita/PSTV running 3.60
  • A memcard with at least 10MB of free space (internal memory is currently not supported!)
  • An FTP client
  • An internet connection
Yifan Lu who released the hack had this to say about it:

The HENkaku hack has been released at https://henkaku.xyz/, you will need to visit HENkaku website to perform the hack and require a PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV on firmware 3.60.

He're at Digiex we like to keep you up to date with console tutorials for hacks and homebrew, with that in mind if you have a Wii U and want to hack it to load the Homebrew Channel we've now got you covered, hopefully making the process as easy as possible to follow for a complete beginner!

Firstly your Wii U need's to be exploitable, since we posted this news all currently Wii U firmware versions including 5.5.1 are exploitable, with that in mind we've put together a very easy guide on how to stop your Wii U from updating.

Part 1: Block Nintendo Wii U Updates Easily With Alternate DNS Server

Once your Wii U is safe from updates issued by Nintendo you can follow the main part of the guide, we have made things easy for you and setup our own mini site hosting the exploit you need to gain control over the Wii U.

Part 2: Nintendo Wii U Homebrew Channel Hack Guide

Finally when your Wii U is up and running with homebrew you might also wish to load some games from other regions, this is also possible and we have a guide teaching you how to prepare Wii U games to load from an SD card inside the Wii U.

Part 3: Extract Wii U WUD's (Encrypted ISO Images) for use with Loadiine GX2

As always we have tried to make our guides as easy and detailed as possible, remember the Wii U homebrew scene is in its infancy, however even so game mods, level editors are already out there. We expect things to progress a lot as the year goes on.

Updated on 07.05.16 as Wii U Firmware 5.5.1 is now exploitable, meaning any Wii U released to date is currently capable of running the homebrew channel.
The BADIRET exploit has been released for the PS4, this is a Kernel Exploit which gives full access to the PS4 hardware.

This exploit was designed to work on PS4 firmware version 1.76 originally, however it may work up to firmware 2.01 if a different entrypoint to run the exploit is released.

Team Fail0verflow who have a full Linux distro running on the PS4 decided to also release the missing pieces from their Linux booting on PS4 talk. This means in theory everything is now out there for the public to get Linux running on the PS4.

As the PS4 is capable of booting Linux, it is also capable of booting a patched Orbis OS, with security restrictions removed. That essentially means homebrew in the PS4's Orbis OS. The PS4 scene is in its infancy, however this is a big leap forward, especially as things are now out in the public. You only need to look at the 3DS scene to see how that progressed!

The Digiex team have invested in an exploitable PS4 on firmware 1.76 in the hopes we can bring you some high quality tutorials in the near future.

The ideal way to get yourself a PS4 on old firmware is to buy one of the old bundles, and to ensure it's new, not used. The exploitable firmware you need is is 1.76, so you need to obtain a PS4 on this firmware or lower. You can easily upgrade to 1.76, however it's not possible to downgrade to it.

The list of exploitable PS4 bundels are as follows:
  • Ps4 Glacier white with Destiny Bundle
  • Killzone Shadow Fall Launch Bundle
  • Battlefield 4 Launch Bundle
  • Knack launch Bundle
  • InFamous Second Son + Killzone Shadow Fall + Knack Bundle
  • NBA 2K14 Bundle
  • FIFA 2K14 Bundle
  • Dynasty Warriors 7 bundle
  • Dynasty Warriors 8 bundle
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Bundle
  • Infamous: Second Son launch bundle
  • Watch_Dogs bundle
  • Destiny Bundle (black)
  • DriveClub Bundle (Black)
  • DriveClub Bundle (Glacier white)
  • Call of Duty: Ghost Bundle
Amazon UK and Amazon US still stock some of the above bundels...

Yesterday Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow and Green we're re-released for the Nintendo 3DS on the Eshop. These are essentially the same games you played on the original Game Boy up to 20 years ago depending on where about's in the world you are from.

However the games have been updated to allow trades over local Wi-Fi and another nice bonus is that you will be able to import your Pokemon in to Pokemon Moon and Sun which will be released towards the end of this year.

As side effect of this re-release is that it gives people with a hacked 3DS a chance to import their save game from the original Pokemon games, either from an emulator or actually dumped from a physical game cartridge.

This means for the first time ever Pokemon from games in the first generation will be able to brought up to the current generation of games. Pretty awesome for the older fans of the series who still have their save games.

We have created a tutorial that will teach you how to import your Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow or Green save games from either an emulator or physical game cartridge on the the eshop re release on your Nintendo 3DS.

If that sounds like something you would like to do head over to the tutorial now: Pokemon GameBoy / Rom Save Transfer To 3DS [Red, Blue, Yellow & Green]
