BroadOn data dumps

From RGDWiki

Of the data from the Zammis Clark Breach that has been leaked, there are a few archives that have some connection to BroadOn/RouteFree or contain data that originated from BroadOn. These archives contain dumps from BroadOn's file servers, archived in TAR files with source code repositories formatted in CVS for version control. Most of the files from these dumps are organized in a similar way, and have references to originally being located in a parent directory called "routefree".

To give an example, it is possible that BroadOn finished development on the Wii around the early 2010s, backed up a CVS repository with some of their code into a TAR archive named "depotrvl.tar", in a folder named "ng", which was then requested by Nintendo to be sent to them in a big folder containing the "ng" tree and all the other trees, and then kept in a folder called "routefree" on Nintendo of Europe's file storage servers, which were then hacked, and dumped by wack0 in March of 2018. Afterwards, wack0 sent some of the data to someone who had connections or a friendly relationship with him, who then copied over the contents of the "ng" and "bb" folders, along with "prewrite-062308", maybe part of an internal email dump of some sort, and then put into a 7-zip archive called "unsorted.7z", shared between friends for a bit, then later uploaded to Anonfiles and posted to 4chan.

The chance of something as enormous as the "routefree" folder being leaked in full is highly unlikely, but not impossible.

Known development trees

  • bb - Short for BroadOn Board. iQue Player hardware documents & software source code with data relating to Nintendo 64.

[Location: unsorted.7z\depot.tar]

  • ng - Short for NNGC. Wii software source code, internal Wii/GameCube documents, hardware documentation & Verilog.

[Location: unsorted.7z\depotrvl.tar\d1\routefree\ng\depot]

  • gba - Game Boy Advance software source code and hardware related documents. Not related to the iQue Game Boy Advance.

[Location: netcard.7z\gba.tar\depot-offline]

  • iqgba - Source code for the iQue Game Boy Advance and some of its games.

[Location: netcard.7z\iqgba.tar\iQue-GBA]

(Note: Unsure if iqgba.tar is the same as the others. It doesn't have any CVS data until multiple subfolders in, and it doesn't have a "routefree" or "depot" folder. Maybe it was just dumped or archived in a different way?)

  • bbgames - Source code for multiple Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance games, likely used for Chinese localization & releases for the iQue Player.

[Location: bbgames.7z\bbgames.tar\d1\routefree\bbgames\depot]

  • ios-releases - Source code for many versions of the Wii's IOS, multiple copies of the "gba" and "ng" trees, and other files.

[Location: ios-releases.tar.7z\ios-releases.tar]

  • sc - Unknown. Not leaked itself, but found inside the ios-releases tree.

[Location: ios-releases.tar.7z\ios-releases.tar\ios_release_080223132629_branch_031408\ios_release_080223132629_branch\sc]

  • nc - Unknown. Possibly NetCard related. Could be the contents of “nc_stuff” in netcard.7z.

[Mentioned in: unsorted.7z\depotrvl.tar\d1\routefree\ng\depot\sw\server\rsync.bins,v]

  • bb2 - iQue Box, a cancelled iQue GameCube. Not leaked in full, but files and documents from the bb2 tree have been sent to people by Zammis Clark.

[Mentioned in files from “ng” tree]

  • client - Unknown. Possibly NetCard related. Could be the contents of “nc_stuff” in netcard.7z.
