    Dorritos are always a good idea to have, but right now, only time will tell what exactly we will get from Hykem.

    So keep a USB-Harddrive ready if you get one cheap, as it will surely come in handy sometime after the exploit release.

    Is a usb-harddrive with only 1 usb connector good enough (without external power supply)?

    Bold of you to purchase a USB HDD, even though nothing has been released yet and nobody has common knowledge about USB loading with Wii U games. But not a bad choice at all, there's a nice probability that it'll happen I'd say.

    USB loading will almost certainly happen, although maybe not right away. If you have a spare SD card lying around, you might want to prep it (E.g. clear off space) just in case, but I wouldn't go out and buy one exclusive for your Wii U at this point. As others have pointed out, a Y-cable is definitely recommended for the external HDD. Other than that, I say just wait until the hack is released and go from there.
