    i've always wondered if you could just pirate brain age and then go on with the installation after that, or is there some way to boot to homebrew and back to the home menu?

    No, pirate copy would result in brick.

    How is the Wii U browser supposed to go away, anyway? Is there actually any mechanism for Nintendo to disable it remotely?

    The wii u browser is a program that's preinstalled in the OS, it won't just stop working...

    @shixooo Faster and optionally automated booting, mainly. Haxchi boots faster than launching the browser, especially if you're manually opening an exploit web page (as opposed to using Indexiine). There's also the convenience factor of being able to set up Haxchi to launch different homebrew apps depending on which button you hold on boot. And then of course there's the option to install Coldboot Haxchi, so you can boot into CFW without having to do anything at all.

    In short though, all the improvements are about convenience, so you're not really missing out on much besides the amount of time you're spending getting into a CFW/homebrew environment if you use a browser exploit.
