    Hello guys. I am coming everyday to this forum just to read news. But today i made an account at last and this is my first post ever :D

    So i got some questions.

    I have a wiiu with 5.4.o firmware. But i am little confused.
    Can i actually run any homebrew on it? Should i stay on 5.4.0 or should i update? I mean is there any chance that a homebrew like loadiine will be released on that firmware.

    Thank you in advance!!! ( sorry for my bad english )

    No, 5.3.2 is the last fw wich can do wiiu mode homebrew so far, there are exploits for later fWs but they arent released yet.

    Hacking vwii(wii mode) is still totaly possible and do everything a wii can do.

    Thank you very much for the info. It's a shame but i think ill just wait. For now i don't care about the wii mode so ill just live it like that.
    I hope i could program by myself so i could help other people to release a homebrew for later versions, but i got no idea of any programing language :P

    Both 5.4.0 and 5.5.0 will have a kernel exploit released eventually, there are private kernel exploits for both that will be released once patched by Nintendo. But the 5.5.0 exploit is more buggy and the 5.4.0 exploit will be released first so if you want warez loading ASAP stay on 5.4.0 or sell it and buy a 5.3.2 one :P

    I also have a 5.4. I guess will just have to be patient :/. Hopefully it comes out within the month. Lol doubt it though maybe in 2 or 3 though.

    Yes. i can't sell it at the moment and get another with 5.3.2 firmware so ill just have to block the auto updates and wait patiently. Hope the next kernel will be released within the next two months .
