    Please, even though you're a new member, don't use the term jailbreak.

    I created an account just to say that "jailbreak" is a term used for more than just iOS devices, its a term used by computer enthusiasts that means "to exploit a device to remove manufacturer limitations and restrictions." Its used more for Apple products only because its more common to jailbreak a very tightly closed device such as iPhones while other devices are already quite open-source.

    Also to stay on topic, Smash Stack is one of the easiest ones to do and more common since most Wii/Wii U owners have this video game.

    nothing against this post, but wikipidia is an open ended argument. you can't believe everything that's put in there because so many people have diff opinions and can edit it.
    but I will take this quote and use it anyway.

    "In the case of gaming consoles, jailbreaking is often used to execute homebrew games"

    but either way, idc. just stating my thoughts.

    Wait, no one actually answered the question. Can you or can you not jailbreak it?

    Seriously cut the guy a break he's a newcomer not some one who's been here for 4 years I bet if everyone here was a newcomer then you would be expecting the same kind of respect even if you made a mistake.

    really i'm a " computer enthusiast" (certified in many areas of pc knowledge, and programing) and i don't use that term. so far i've only seen people that enjoy watchign tutorials on how to click the ok button on a script to do the most simple of tasks use the term "jailbreak" for hacking, cracking, unlocking, rooting, exploiting, decrypting, and (you'll laugh at this) gaining admin rights to Microsoft devices and apple devices.

    lastly on topic, smash stack is as i do agree with spymoft a common exploit for running unsigned code and installing the homebrew channel on the wii and wiiu. (just make sure you follow instructions on how to do it properly.)

    Just to clarify, the term "Jailbreak" is a term coined by geohot, and was intended to be the name of HIS exploits, which entail Apple and Sony, anything not developed by geohot is not considered a jailbreak. The more you know!

    To answer the original question: Yes. As far as I know, there is no version of vWii that cannot be hacked.

    As for arguing over terminology, I always thought you jailbreak Apple and Sony products, root Android devices, and just plain hack or mod most others.
