    Hi everyone,

    I recently got a second hand WiiU and luckily it is with 5.3.2. after a few tries, i was able to use loadiine last night. Thank you for making this possible.

    I am thinking of modding the vWii too. but im afraid that the process will be hard to reverse. Will vWii modding interfere with future updates?

    is there anything we can run off loadiine to emulate wii and then running games off USB? so we dont have to switch SD cards between wiiu games and vWii mod?

    Thanks.

    You can mod your vWii just fine. It's almost close to 0 the chances that future updates will affect homebrew on vwii.
    I'm not 100% sure about Loadiine and vWii mod, but i think you can have both stuff on same sd just fine (i'm on 5.5.1 so i dont have loadiine).
    As i can see, you won't be running both at same time, so i don't see a problem having data for both on same SD.
    And as far as i know, loadiine can't acess the usb yet, so you'll have the apps+wii u games on sd and wii games on HDD.
    HDD support is expected when a IOSU exploit is released, and even so, i doubt will have some kind of wii emulation on it, so a softmod wii will still be needed imo.

    Thanks RodrigoR. i thought we will need a 2GB SD for vWii? or is that only for the modding? are we able to run it off any sized SD card once modded? then it sure is more convenient.

    You can use any size you want after mod. In fact the apps you'll keep on the SD for just WII backup doesn't even pack over 100mb (with all the game covers in hd,2d,3d etc...), you can add like +500mb or so if you want to use emunand on sd too.
    I did my softmod with an old 1GB card, and i still use that same card.
    Just a small edit cause i forgot, I did a mod for a friend and he uses a 32Gb card (cause it was the only he had), he ended up stuffing with gamecube games and still have lots of space left.

    Will it be able to play original Wii discs once modded? in case, im selling it to somebody innocent in the future?

    Yes. Softmod just make it able to load games (isos) from a HDD. It doesn't change the hardware side. So it can read original wii/wii u disc normally .
