Description Like the previous years, fail0verflow and friends, console and other hardware hackers are getting together for 33C3. We will set up our consoles, show off our hacks, and teach people about them! We will also work on new and existing projects. Non-exhaustive project list: Linux on PS4, NES Classic Hacking, OpenLase, Defeat Device Reversing, Dolphin Emulator
Members Blasty, Delroth, Drmr, Jix, Marcan, Segher, Tmbinc

Planning notes We'd like to be next to the Eindbazen assembly, as we team up for the CTF.

Setting up consoles for hacking (connecting scopes, fpgas etc.) requires a bit of extra table space. Having a not too brightly lit wall nearby/within line of sight to project stuff on using lasers would be nice. While we have projects to show and want to meet new interested people, we also need space to gather and work on projects.

past congress review A lot of the work we did at the hackcenter was presented at past congresses (see list of talks below). We're distributed world wide, so the C3 is usually the only place where we meet in person to start new projects or finish projects for presentations. We also participate in the c3ctf and won it in 2008 (as wiiphonies) and 2014 (together with Eindbazen as 0xffa). We always had a bit too little table space in previous years, thus getting a bit more table space is more important than a prominent location. There is always a stream of interested people coming by, so any temporarily unused space is quickly filled with people sitting down to learn more about console hacking and hardware reverse engineering.

Like the previous years, console hackers and team fail0verflow are getting together for 33C3. We hope to have some table space at the Hackcenter to set up our consoles, show off our hacks, and teach people about them!The topic extends to many aspects of video game consoles and embedded devices, both software and hardware. This includes breaking the security, using homebrew software, modifying their existing software, hardware modifications and improvements, using custom hardware peripherals with consoles, using console peripherals with custom hardware, and anything else that's related to video game consoles. A lot of what goes on behind the scenes only happens once or twice, so here's your chance to learn what it really means to hack a game console, hands-on.If you always wanted to learn how the Wii's security was broken using a pair of tweezers, how to reverse engineer the Wii Remote's extension encryption and make your own, or why using a real random number generator is be very important, you might want to stop by and say hi :)With the Wii, WiiU, the PS3 and PS4 down, what will happen this year? We'll probably stare at other current consoles to see how far we can get during CCC. Three years ago we broke the last remaining parts of the WiiU and last year we made some progress with Linux on the PS4 thanks to the teamwork made possible in the hackcenter - let's see what this year brings! Before registering as fail0verflow we usually registered under the "Console Hacking" group, and members include people who have worked on the iPhone Dev Team and the wii hacking group Team Twiizers. We will also have a number of guests sitting with us.
