I went to see what firmware it was and was sad to see it at 5.5.0. I know there will be a release to exploit it but I am confused as of today what I can do. I don't care about playing wii u backups yet. Can I put home brew on there and play emulators for systems like mame and Snes? Can I play wii games through an external hdd using the vWii? What about GameCube games on 5.5? I am a noob at wiiu but I got all these things to work on my wii but keep it around so a I can play the 100 games I got off the HDD. Thanks for any help.
