    Installed via WUP installer. It appears on my homescreen but launching it causes a black screen freeze everytime. Did I miss something?

    Also @FIX94: I edited the txt and put nothing in but USB Loader GX but when I launch it (from Wii U's Homebrew Launcher) it "only" leads me to vWii's Homebrew Channel, not USBLGX.

    This is nice, but I would like to have an option to return directly to the Wii U Menu when the Wii system menu is called as in exiting from a channel, similar to how Wii VC games exit directly to the Wii U Menu when the Wii Menu option from the HOME Menu is selected.

    I agree with the idea to launch wii channels / wiiware / forwarders from cbhc if possible :P

    if you actually read the first sentence in the first post you may realize that that was what I wanted; so far unsuccessful, I guess in the worst case I can let it boot using hbl2hbc but I wanted to have it internal so it boots up in no time at all instead of having to wait a full minute.

    the wii doesnt have a global os like the wiiu so each game has its own mini os basically and each game has to know the system menu id and all the other wii specific stuff so if you go back to the wii menu it does exactly that for that simple reason.

    One step closer to modding cafe2wii and gamepad support on vWii.

    Just keep pressing B on Coldboot to instantly enter vWii mode. That was a native Wii U feature all the time.

    Only thing to make this better, using wii u game pad or pro controller in v wii. :)

    So if you exit homebrew channel, does it go back to wii u or go to vwii menu?

    Would you mind explaining the contraints in a technical standpoint to why this is not possible at present?

    Just curious.

    Goes to vWii menu, but it would be better if the .elf would point the system menu call to Wii U Menu instead of vWii menu, like Wii VC games did.

    I am confused by something here. Am I mistaken that we cannot have two HDDs connected and running at the same time or is that info old? (One WiiU formatted and one fat32 for vWii).

    If that assumption is correct, at what point in this process should one power down/disconnect one and start the other?
