Sorry if that has been previously answered (I did read the stickied threads so hopefully I didn't just read over it because I'm stupid...), but I was wondering what is possible with the Wii U up to this point. I have a Wii that was hacked with the Homebrew Channel that I could play games off of a USB on. Although that was as far as I ever got (other than changing skins on characters on SSBB and playing on altered courses on Mario Kart Wii), I was wondering exactly what the Wii U can do up to this point. I've read a little bit about vWii but I'm not fully sure what it is. Is it just a version of a Wii on the Wii U? How can it be used to play games off of a USB (I'm pretty sure I read you can do this, but I wasn't sure how to even get vWii...) or to alter games slightly (again, I'm pretty sure I saw this was possible and that people had played with NSMBW). And if these things are possible, how can I alter my Wii U to do them? TL;DR: - Can the Wii U be hacked in the same way that the Wii can? - What is vWii/how do you get it & how can you play games from a USB using it? - How else can the Wii U be hacked? (Altering games such as Mario Kart/New Super Mario Bros Wii/Super Smash Bros) Thanks a ton and sorry if I just asked a ton of annoying questions.
