    The vWii software exploit works fine in 5.1.1. There is no issue.

    The 5.1.1 does fix the WiiU browser exploit, but it is only user mode and not overly useful right now. If you're only interested in vWii, feel free to update.

    By using the term "softmode" you disqualified yourself from getting support.

    It seems like it might allow full access to many parts of Wii U mode as people are already modding Mario Kart 8 with it. Because of that I would avoid updating to the latest firmware, since the exploit might eventually enable USB loaders, firmware mods and things like that.

    Dude. Take a mario kart 8 with a friend to update to 4.1. Then take a smash bros wii original to install hbc and play your wii games from external hd. And wait until some good thing come from scene. Dont play online if you want future homebrew.
