    I know that the work in progress about the hack natively about the Wii U
    And i heard that the objectif was to share us the first ways to hack before the E3
    I just would like to know if this objective is always possible ? And know where did they have ?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think enough progress has been made to get anywhere near a homebrew channel.
    Who told you this?

    According to the current team making the hack (Marionumber1, NWPlayer123 and friends), a kernel exploit is supposed to be released parallel to E3; this means hacks can be run with decently high permissions, but absolutely nothing can be installed to the console (so probably a Homebrew Menu, but not a Homebrew Channel). And don't expect to see anything before E3, it's either going to be during or after

    It doesn't really matter who said that, as it was even said here by the team.
    nothing has been invented.

    "expect something before E3" has been said few times.
    But users might think that "release" means there will be homebrew ready to install and launch and pirate games etc.
    if users wrongly interpret what will be release and possible (due to language barrier maybe), it could become a wrong rumor on other websites.


    A note :
    I don't like referring to code loaders as "The Homebrew Channel" for future consoles or homebrew.
    1. it's a (copyrighted? in the sense that it's their own property and idea) name chosen by team twiizers for their homebrew launcher. It's not a general name to cover all launchers.
    2. it was named "channel" because the installed Titles on system menus were called channels. It's no more the case on 3DS or WiiU. there's no "channel" anymore.

    homebrew launcher, homebrew browser, etc. all are fine.
    but "homebrew channel" refers to that particular released homebrew name on wii only.

    miss-read information is all it seem's to be. there is no actual deadline or promise date to be expected just a rough guess of which month it could possible be

    it's not fake, just not totally right.
    The team hope to do a release, but there's no fixed date as it still requires work.

    and the article is good and correct.
    no release date are given.

    Our expected release date is right after Nintendo's presentation on June 16th, but all that's going to include is:
    • The new build system for making applications
    • The kernel exploit polished for 5.3.2
    • A Webkit exploit that works on 5.3.2
    • Possibly TCPGecko and Cafiine, we'll see how things go, should be around that time though.

    Is 5.3.2 the latest version? Is Cafiine the Riivolutuion replacement, I have not been paying much attention to the Wii U lately.
