    Yeah, I know there's all kinds of stuff we're just waiting for them to freaking RELEASE ALREADY !!!!

    (I know, patience ... and I don't even HAVE a Wii U yet. )

    It may not come out for months, Walmart's online site says 2/28/13 (take it with a grain of salt considering its Walmart tho) but nobody else has even posted a release date for it. I want someone to review it first before i jump to get one.

    this is coming from someone who preordered the "Razer Onza TE" half a year in advance and had my friends get one when it came out. It was supposed to be the best controller ever made, and it seemed like it was , until the triggers broke from just using it. then my second one broke from the same problem, and so have my friends. I will NEVER pre-order another controller again until people start reviewing it first to see how it holds up durability wise.

    true. that one looks super cheap from the pictures - which at least they finally posted. i had a controller once where the joysticks carved notches into the sides from use, and i don't even play very much.

    I was one of the first to jump on the Nyko Wand+ bandwagon when they came out. they suck badly, the speaker buzzed alot since they did not know how to properly use the Bluetooth speaker stuff since not even the dolphin team has figured that out.
    and the Wand+ had trouble with homebrew and even regular games with it being jumpy and the rumble being super loud. its even worse now that i have a Wii U. NintendoLand randomly asks me to insert a MotionPlus adapter into the Wand+, which has one already.
    i guess Nintendo wants Wand+ owners to run a Wand++ (Wii MotionPlusPlus) remote. sometimes, i can play, and sometimes, i cant. I have no motionplus adapter to see what happens if I plug a motionplus into a wand+. I wish i did to see what would happen since the builtin one randomly works.

    It's an okay controller, but it's not as all-in-one as they say it is. The Wii and WiiU register the device as a Wiimote with a Wii Classic controller connected. It is NOT a Wii U controller Pro as well, as some may confuse it to be. Game compatibility may not be 100% either. I'm seeing some major issues with games like Metroid: Other M or Super Paper Mario, for example.

    I got something along those lines shortly after I started using HBC and Gecko OS on my WiiU. It gave message saying system files corrupted while I was in vwii mode. I think it was also after I installed IOS236. I unplugged system, waited bit, restarted and everything seemed fine afterwards.

    I have a feeling we have that data already.

    but it's useless as is, as it's encrypted.

    Do you also have the 2.0.0 Firmware Update as well? I am currently still on 1.0.1 E. I didn't update yet cause of possible exploits...

    Anyway - just imagine it would be possible to update (somehow) via USB with one of these firmware files - would 2.0.0 E be required to update from 1.0.1 E to 2.1.0 E? I ask this because i heard that the first firmware update was about 1 gig in file size and people that had defective consoles caused by download issues like canceled / buggy downloads after starting the update...

    but he posted a link to files that are copyrighted by nintendo, and if one read the rules of this forum, they should know that this is not allowed here.

    maybe I didn't write it correctly, it was a package containing files from nintendo's server.
    Not a link to the server itself.

    Users who want the files can find the link to the server, or use a proxy which list them when updating their console, and download them directly from Nintendo Update Server.
    Do not re-host them.
