    And now we have a 3rd player in the WiiU CFW race......
    Upon reading his blog this one sounds as if it will be more user friendly before WiiUbru's version and SALT's unless they release theirs soon...

    Remember back in the day when everyone said IOSU wasn't going to change anything and that whatever anyone wanted to do could be made with Kernel exploits?

    Well, I don't want to be that guy but...

    The vast majority of people wanted IOSU for easier game piracy, e.g. USB game loaders, going from the forum posts here anyway...

    In regards to homebrew it doesn't really change that much from what i've gathered. However a permanent exploit that launches when the Wii U boots will hopefully encourage more homebrew development, we will just have to see.

    I said that before, ppl blamed me and I don't regret nothing :) I was pretty sure that IOSU was the last hope of the wiiu scene.

    Its kinda true, everything IOSU got us was a way for Developer to use USB in their Homebrew.

    The thing is THERE ARE NO DEVELOPER THAT ARE DEVELOPING ANYTHING BESIDES THE ONES THAT MAKES IOSU!!

    Except for the recent builds of 10 different libretro cores. That's certainly not nothing.

    Exactly and I am willing to bet that a number of devs have other secret projects in the works.

    When I think of CFW I think of customised firmware: themes, modded text, alternate music, (sig) patches and splash screens.

    Full control over the look and feel.

    Can't wait for a dark themed Wii u!

    Someone on a discord I browse has actually been trying to do this with his redNAND dump. I'm certainly interested to see how it turns out.

    Is he one of the guys who accepted yifan's vita hack challenge and then completed it with ease? According to his nickname, it seems to be. If he could help the wii u scene, then there will be a huge boost to the sucess rate of the iosu.
