    I just hacked my Wii U yesterday following this guide. I bought Brain Age and installed Haxchi, there is a 64GB sdcard in my Wii U. I believe I hacked the Wii U correctly. Anyways, I'm a member of a torrent site that has pretty much every Wii/Wii U game. My son wanted to play Kirby's Return To Dream Land(Wii) on his Wii U. I found and downloaded Kirby's Return to Dream Land (USA) (En,Fr,Es).wbfs. I'm still new to all of this homebrew so I have no idea where to start. I have tons of Wii/Wii U games that are in .iso & .wbfs format, how do I go about playing these, what is the easiest method? There so many tutorials it's overwhelming.

    Make absolutely positive that you DO NOT EVER install things meant for the Wii U on to the vWii & vice versa.

    My Wii U was on 5.5.3 I believe. These vWii tutorials say I need earlier firmware?

    I have no clue what vWii is but from what I briefly saw dont I have to be on a lower firmware than 5.5.3? Because thats what I was on when I installed Hax or whatever.

    wbfs files can be played on the vwii with usbloader gx or wiiflow or cfgusbloader, or if u have a somewhat powerful pc you can use the dolphin emulator

    There used to be a flow chart they showed you what you could convert to what and what it would run off of, but I can't seem to find it sadly

    vWii is the virtual wii client of WiiU. A wbfs file only works on Wii/vWii. So you will have to soft mod your vWii. Follow this guide: https://wiiu.hacks.guide/vwii-modding.html

    Another way that you could load Wii wbfs/iso is using Wii VC injector (https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wiivc-injector-script-gc-wii-homebrew-support.483577/). This is the preferred method to use Wii games on WiiU.
