    Yes, HIDtoVPAD has a build-in config for the Switch Pro Controller, to use it wireless, you need the HIDtoVPAD Network Client.

    neat, where can i get that client thingie?
    and do i only have to put it in the app folder of my SD card?

    will it be required to launch it like SDCafine on launch every time?

    Everything is in the HIDtoVPAD thread and yes, you need to launch it on every reboot since it is a temporal patch.

    Isn't CBHC essentially permanent CFW? If not, what's the difference?

    Not at all, since it does a reboot and relies on a /usr tittle that can be easily deleted/overwrite (inclusive if it has tons of sanity checks :/ ).

    I guess my question would then be would a permanent CFW offer anything that CBHC doesn't already accomplish? The only thing I could imagine would be the return of the ability to use the Gamepad to quick launch specific titles when you turn on the Wii U. It is a bummer to no longer have that ability with CBHC, though mapping quick launches of specific titles/homebrew to holding of specific buttons when you start the Wii U is an ok substitute that CBHC has to offer, still I'd prefer the official method if we could have it. But beyond that, is there any other real benefit it would offer over CBHC?

    The benefit of being QUICK, not having to affect other system functions, in this case, CBHC affects the quick menu which I love. Also, we need something that works since the VERY boot of the console., not having to wait for it to "reload" everytime you enter and exit from a game. ETC ETC ETC

    Doesn't HID2vpad have some kind of unstable bugs still present within it? Isn't that why it was disabled and then removed from retroarch? Apparently the cause of memory errors.

    That was only affecting RetroArch not the Wii U in general where it works flawlessly.

    Tapatalk doesn't display those, so I wasn't sure if it was "yayu" or "yaywiiu".

    Quicker boot, safer, nand restore at boot, bootchains (well, this one is alreally posible with CBHC, but perhaps permanent CFW may (lead?) to more stable bootchains) and lots of cool stuff.

    I’m not disrespecting him it’s great he’s keeping the wiiu alive but devs have moved on! I was trying to say he should use his talents on something new elsewhere and not stay in the same mold.

    I’m not blowing my own trumpet but I was the first to make a mod out of cbhc the only reason why I didn’t release my work was because I was trusting someone else alongside working with me who went on and released my work very early beta stage without my consent and it wasn’t even tested properly my end it could of bricked wiiu’s for all he knew, actually it didn’t work properly so he went from Gbatemp because everyone was asking him to fix it and update it when he couldn’t. Check my Sigi it’s been there since fix released the first beta...I was only asking fix if he would do the title for his cbhc mod, he gave me a sarci/nasty reply so I went on too create my own cbhc mod which tbh is the bollocks does all this on bootup and more!

    Great early cbhc guide you made on that site by the way, really went down well with many bricked wiiu’s!!! Cough, cough! Don’t think I haven’t remembered..

    Would this make it possible to make an Amiibo spoofer for Wii U?
