A savegame exploit for "LEGO Batman" on the Nintendo Wii
SD card (not SHDC) formatted as FAT16 or FAT32
Some possibility to copy the savegame

Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
Go into Wii Options -> Data Management -> Save Data -> Wii.
Go to SD card and select the "Bathaxx" savegame that corresponds

Copy the savegame to the Wii.
Boot LEGO Batman.

the door in order to enter the "Wayne Manor". Now you can select a
character. Choose the last enabled one in the lowest row.
It's a typical (string) buffer overflow. There are more than one way to
trigger this vulnerability (I think there're three ways). I choose
that one, because it's the closest one to the spawning point :p
