    I feel lost in the hacking game.

    I have an old HDD with GC/Wii games that I bought, then ripped as backups and played on my old Wii.

    I am now interested to play only my old games on my new Wii U from my HDD.
    I am NOT interested in hacking anything else other than the VWii. For the WiiU I use games that I buy from the ordinary E-shop. But I also want to be able to play my old games from HDD.

    What are my options for hacking the VWii? I really have a hard time navigating in the instructions.
    Does the ordinary Wii U firmware matter when it comes to hacking the VWii too? Am I screwed if I updated to the latest firmware, wich I did?

    Well. My machine is connected and constantly updated with the latest stuff. So it´s all the latest.
    As I said. I have no intentions of hacking anything else but the VWii so I can play my old GC/Wii games. The only stuff I need is Nintendont and Wiiflow.

    But I really don´t know where to start or what to do.

    I know how to hack the old Wii machine. But I don´t know how to do it with the Wii U.

    wiiu fw doesnt matter to hack vwii. to hack vwii any wiiu fw works but you need a real wii game, either ssbb or lego batman/indiana.

    I have Lego Batman as I used that one to hack my old Wii back in the days.
    Is this true? I won´t have any problems installing WiiFlow and Nintendont on my fully updated Wii U?

    nope wiiu fw doesnt affect vwii, you hack vwii the same way on 5.5.0 as you would on 1.0.0 wiiu fw.

    Will he have any issues with autoupdating his Wii U, if he hacks his vWii?
    I have no idea (haven't hacked my vwii), but I have seen issues with people no longer able to update the Wii U at all, due to a bricked vWii. It might be worth clarifying, since he says he always has his Wii U connected to the net.

    lol if he briks his vwii then its becuase he didnt follow the tutorials and tryed installing some wii ios instead of vwii ios, if you do the tutorial wiiu will update just fine.
