    Looking around, there is no wii u plugin or available unity version, with full support, that is attainable without being Dev approved. Unless someone leaks the package.

    It's the name of part of the security system in the Wii U, ask Nintendo; and it's not released yet, you cannot actually install this exploit.

    This is not a release thread. There is no IOSU exploit available yet. So NO you cannot play online

    I can't vouch for whatever SALT's been working on, but from what I've seen they're making it stable for the end user, smea's thing is hacky as heck, even says:
    "also, fair warning : do NOT blindly use this. read the patches. running this with the wrong options enabled can/will brick your console. this release is oriented towards devs, not end users."

    You've seen quag's menu stuff, NAND dumping sounds very simple and only has to run once whereas I can't vouch for reliability on smea's stuff, they probably have a more advanced custom firmware from a large amount of reverse engineering and the exploit isn't unstable like having multiple attempts just to dump the OTP (smdh), emuNAND is probably very easy to boot into as well, no idea if a persistent sploit has been achieved or will be released but

    not oriented towards end users != hacky as heck

    it's perfectly reliable and usable if you know what you're doing (which basically just requires the ability to actually read code)

    Are you saying @NWPlayer123 can't read code?

    How about, we people that have no clue, just sit and wait? And tinker with the stuff we got right now?

    or just never bothered, just don't have much faith in temp blindly leaping into stuff based on hype now that "muh IOSU is here and I have muh 1337 OTP"

    So I went ahead an complied this which was fun setting up, and after a successful make I'm left with a new fw.img in the work directory which I assume is patched(?), a folder of patched sections, and a wupserver.bin and elf

    Out of morbid curiosity, if I had any idea what I was doing, what kind of thing would I be doing next? This seems oddly incomplete to me. Even if we assume the vulnerabilities/exploits aren't included, it seems like there are missing tools for all the purported functionalities like nand backup and nand redirection

    I assume the .elf/bin would need IOSU kernel access to run but to me that suggests the patched FW is already loaded. There seems to be a link in the chain missing in how the fw.img is supposed to either be loaded or installed

    Yeah I wouldn't call it hacky as heck, it's just really Not Nice for end users. It definitely works from a development standpoint if you're actually using it for development, but for end users there's not much to be gained yet. Half the problem is/was getting things nice enough and adding enough value that booting into redNAND isn't a pointless burden (assuming that users will be going through browserhax).
