    This is going to be an odd question, but bear with me here.

    Could the original homebrew for the Wii work with the Wii Menu on a Wii U? For example, could I use Letterbomb to install homebrew onto the Wii Menu and just the Wii Menu only?

    If it's possible and I end up bricking it, would it make the whole Wii U inoperable or just the Wii Menu?

    Nope, you need a game to do the exploit. I have a copy of YuGiOh 5Ds that I used to hack my vWii. If you pay for shipping I could send it to you (PM me if your interested).

    So would it affect my Wii U at all? It would use the game to hack just the vWii, correct? (if the vWii is the Wii Menu as I'm assuming)

    So far, the only way to affect the Wii U side is to alter or delete the vWii IOS that are factory installed. Don't mess with those IOS and you will be fine. Install the vWii version of the d2x cIOS and you are good to go.
