Is the WiiU hacked yet? Eh.. Probably?Fail0verflow have apparently developed a software based exploit, but it has yet to be released. (and may not be.) UPDATE: FEB 2014 - A seperate hacking team unrelated to F0F has announced they they have also developed a parallel exploit, and have dumped the Boot ROM. It has been independently verified and the MD5 hashes match that of the F0F Exploit. Can we Run WiiU ISOs/Backups?NO.But this YouTube video said....NO!Is Wii Mode (vWii) hacked yet? Yes. MOSTLY. What does that mean?What can we actually DO in vWii Mode?Here’s a simple, easy to use list of our current progress in Hacking the Virtual Wii in the WiiU.(Basically, most stuff works the same, with a few exceptions.) Perform an Exploit? YES! (Here's a list of working exploits for vWii) Run Unsigned Code? YES! Dump the NAND? YES! (FSToolbox has been updated to work with the vWii.) Restore the NAND? YES! But Be Careful! (NAND Restores are always dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, ESPECIALLY on the WiiU! Make sure you do!) Install the Homebrew Channel? YES! Run Emulators off an SD card? YES! Install Emulators onto the NAND? YES! Install Virtual Console/WiiWare WADS? YES! Install and Run USB Loaders? YES! But a few games may not work. If it didn't work on the Wii, it won't work in vWii. Run Retail Wii Discs? YES! Run Foreign Retail Wii Discs RegionFree? YES! Run BURNED Wii Discs? NO (The physical drive is different than the Wiis, and would require a new Drivechip.) Use SNEEK on vWii? YES!(Crediar released the source code for the vWii version of SNEEK before leaving the Wii U hacking scene.) Install Bootmii on vWii? NO (No Boot2 access yet, and there likely won't be, due to how vWii was designed.) Install Priiloader on vWii? NO (Ditto) Use Cheats/Mods through Gecko OS? YES! (Use Wiilauncher, which is an alternative to GeckoOS with AHBPROT patching for vWii) Run GameCube Games? YES! (Devolution now has WiiU Support, though you'll need to use a legitimate disk on a GC-Compatible Wii first. More info in this thread. Crediar also released the source code for Nintendon't, A GC backwards compatibility layer for vWii that does not require complicated setup, and released an alpha that supports Wind Waker. If you'd like to help with this project, more information in this thread.) Run Linux? YES! Kinda.. Thanks to a proof by Fail0verflow and some fantastic work by the Trinux team, a distribution of Linux running on all three cores of the Wii U's CPU running under vWii is under development. More information (and how you can help!) here. So how do I actually DO this?So, you're gonna go through with it?Congratulations.BTW, Your warranty is now Void. There are a few tutorials out there, but my personal recommendation is Truth's tutorial, available here. It's simple, concise, and to the point.PLEASE read the other stickies in the forum, especially this thread.It will tell you what is and isn't safe to install on your vWii. You don't want a brick on your hands, so you?Any other cool stuff we can do?Why yes, there is! For example:You can use your Wii U Pro controller on your PC!Oh, and you will soon be able to use your Wii U Gamepad on your PC, too!I'll update this with more more accurate information as time passes.
