Hi, everyone. I'm new to the scene and still a little confused and so I was hoping to get some help. First, I'd need to perform an exploit, correct? Since I have the Super Smash Bros. for the Wii, I intend to go with the Smash Stack exploit. Is this the correct guide - http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Smash_Stack? Using the installer from this page http://hackmii.com/2012/12/hbc-release-for-a-new-wii-u/, v 1.2. Then, I follow this guide - http://gbatemp.net/threads/simple-guide-to-install-cios-on-vwii-backup-nand-and-keys.339890/ - and all the sub-guides I need contained within, correct? I have a European, PAL Wii U. A few questions: Does hacking the Wii Mode affect anything in the regular, Wii U mode? Can I still update to the newest firmware, play my Wii U games online, etc. Can I use a USB thumb drive or a fast HCSD card for Wii backups or do I need an external HDD? Thanks for your time.
