    FYI have a Wii with an external USB already, however just got a WiiU and updated to latest firmware as of July 28th 2013..

    I see a couple of guides on the site for various features and add-ons however I wanted to ask for myself and other new users that have similar questions. What is the newest / proper way to get vWii modded?

    If someone could point user of this thread to the threads, and or updated instructions on whats needed It would be appreciated.

    Some of these guides are quit old and lots of don't need this or that anymore. So hoping to get a newer step by step for beginners.

    Thanks in advance

    You basically just need to run one of the exploits that work on the vWii. There's a list here.

    http://wiiubrew.org/wiki/WiiMode

    In the last column it'll tell you whether it works on vWii mode, if it does then click the exploit's link. From there the instructions are pretty simple.

    EDIT: All of the working vWii exploits require you to have a exploitable game.

    Other people seem to be helping you out fine but there's one thing they didn't mention.
    You'll probably need a USB Y-cable for your USB HDD unless it has its own power supply as the Wii U does not provide enough power to the USB ports.

    I did read some of them, however there was alot of changes since those were posted. Just wanted an updated posting.. Sorry your butt hurt...

    On a side note, does anyone know a way to make the message about your HDD isn't formatted for WiiU that appears each time you stat up the Wii U. I dont want to format it over to Wii U use since its holding my Wii files..

    again thanks in advance.

    You didn´t read anything, otherwise you would know that my guide is up-to-date.

    And your last question would also already be answered.

    I swear, people these days always need everything served on the silver platter, because they lack complete reading comprehension.

    Another reason why I think your guide should be on the main page - not just inside another important one (or at least edit the title of the progress guide to include - hacking guide as well or something like that).
