    Casper uses the same IOS exploit as Revolution, not sure if either has been tested, but if one works, the other should also.

    As for DOP-Mii, I think that was using the same method as "Trucha Bug Restorer", which was patched a while back. (in the IOS that came with 4.2 maybe? then people installed Korean IOS which still had the bug, so Nintendo started including them in updates for all Wiis, with the bug fixed). Currently, I believe the only way to install any patched IOS with DOP-Mii is HW_AHBPROT or an already patched IOS.

    No. They're no doubt working on it though.

    Not sure, but I suspect Hackmii Installer just spits out the "no vulnerable IOS" message. The IOSes on a vWii all have fixed exploits and newer version numbers...

    (I don't have a Wii U, so can't test.)

    No they don't. I know that much. The IOS's are the same as those that come on the new Wii models.

    I tried the Bathaxx on my wiiU deluxe, all I get is the no vulnerable IOS, and a reboot.

    Take a look below at the title list (the second column is version number).

    The version numbers of the vWii titles have the second character from the left incremented by one compared to the Wii versions. For instance: IOS31 has version 0x0e18 (v3608) on wii, version 0x0f18 (v3864) on vWii.

    A vWii has these: http://wii.marcansoft.com/wiimpersonator/lastupdate.vwii.USA.txt

    A Wii has these: http://wii.marcansoft.com/wiimpersonator/lastupdate.wii.USA.txt

    What on earth is a vWii?

    I gave the new IOS's to several developers, and I imagine marcan has them too.

    Between marcansoft.com and wiiubrew.org I can see they're not loosing any time on this.

    Also, as a side note with the video on OP, That guy has quite a nice collection of Ninty consoles there.

    I been told the wifi signal used for the gamepad is poorly secured. Can anyone confirm this? I been told by the same person (who wants to remain private for now) that he is working on a gamepad emulator. Basically so anyone will be better off buying an archos gamepad, a jxd s7300 or jxd s5600 then paying for a replacement wii-u gamepad. Keep in mind the rumored price for a new wii-u gamepad is between 99.95-124.99 USD.

    And how are you supposed to install the unofficial channel without AHB access or a cIOS?

    I installed the VC wad to Wii and to transfer to Wii U.
    If that doesn't work on Wii U, I'm going with SmashStack.
    NOTE: I don't have a Wii U. I plan on getting one.

    Have you even read the other post? Non-official wads do not get transferred over to the Wii-U. And the VC isn't even out on the Wii-U, neither a new version or old.

    The transfer app doesn't actually TRANSFER anything other than save files. The VC stuff it just notes the shop channel account in the SD card so the Wii U can download them directly itself.

    Unfortunately, you can't get any unauthorized stuff through with the transfer utility.
