    I want to run OctoHax and colorizer on my wii u but I don't want to modify my consoles code really, does it change anything?

    It changes code slightly to exploit it and allow you to use homebrew.

    The code change is only temporary and will go back to normal when you turn off your wii u

    Slightly incorrect. The code is modified. Just its temporary

    If a permanent change was so easy then a permanent hack for the wii u would have been discovered looong ago!

    No "code" is modified, just some parts of the RAM.

    But the modification is code. If it were not code then it would need to be a physical change such as a modchip
