    Hi, I'm doing hack my wii u but then I got sd problems, but then I was told that the Wii U could be bricked by softmod, but I'm not sure. I have seen some take away his tray with bootmii, But if I install just install the Homebrew so I do not bootmii as other os, and then maybe I install some channels with the homebrew I saw on another post that someone had gotten bootmii as first (OS). So I wonder if the Wii U can be damaged by installing homebrew and bootmii, my wii u is the verision 5:30.

    Can the Wii U damaged by being softmod?

    If I softmod, should I install homebrew and bootmii?

    Thanks if I get quick answers :)

    if you take your time to read everything before softmodding it, there will be no problem!..dont mess with the iOS(s) and you wont really risk bricking it..
    and dont forget that you cant use a 32gig sd card for softmodding it, but once the homebrew channel is install, you can use big SD cards if you want, wich can be great to stock all the games and movies :yay:
    Good luck and take your time!..

    As vwii and Wii u are like 2 seperate systems then updating the Wii u side should have no issues as long as the vwii doesn't get an update too

    well i did say ''its not suppose to''. So, ''normaly'', you shouldnt have any problem updating after a softmod.
    ..i've softmodded vwii's atleast 50times and never had trouble updating the wiiu, and never heard anyone having this kind of trouble..
    ..dont scare the guy for nothing! :grog:
