Smash Stack is an exploit from Comex that uses a flaw in the custom stages in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (NTSC) to load unauthorized code on the Wii. It was made on August 20, 2009.

Usage

  1. Remove any existing custom stages on Brawl and make sure SD is selected when you leave as it may freeze.
  2. Copy contents to SD and grab a .elf file (LoadMii as .elf works, find it at LoadMii's Google Code page).
  3. Start Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
  4. Go to the stage builder and the .elf file will load.

How it works

Smash Stack works by exploiting the way Super Smash Bros. Brawl loads stages. It is different from the Twilight Hack and Indiana Pwns exploits in the way it is loaded. Twilight Hack and Indiana Pwns exploit the save files of their respective games to execute a stack smash and load unauthorized code. Super Smash Bros. Brawl's stage loader loads from the SD card and not from a save file on the Wii itself. Since the exploit is loaded from SD, it completely bypasses the System Menu, making it difficult for Nintendo to patch.
