    I'm thinking about trying the emulators through retroarch in WiiU mode. Does going through the latest tools for hacking WiiU have any impact on playing WiiU games from their discs? Any impact on vWii hacking? Also, what is the latest/preferred method method for getting homebrew launcher to install?
    Thanks in advance!

    after installing haxchi, if I plug in my existing usb drive for running USB loadergx in vWii, would that still work ok? I see some haxchi install tutorials that say the USB drive should be disconnected when installing haxchi.

    It should only be disconnected during install because if you accidentally install your HaxChi to USB you're fine unless you install CBHC. If you have HaxChi installed to USB and you install CBHC then you brick. That's why I have the step in my guide tell you to unplug usb (During install only)

    Thanks again. So after I do browser hack and haxchi (so I can get a homebrew launcher channel without internet), I can then disconnect my internet, and plug the USB back in for vWii usbloader gx... right?

    thanks again for everything everyone. One last question.... when I launch the emulator apps, they appear with a hard to read white screen menu, as opposed to the grey/green menu I see in the videos. Am I doing something incorrect?

    You mean Retroarch? There's a thread about it on Homebrew subforum, just ask away there, also it contains all the info you could need.
