    The secondary OS running on the Wii U's ARM processor. It handles a lot of title security and hardware access, and exploiting it would give us control over several areas we don't currently have.

    Wait until IOSU what? IOSU is not the interface you use when you turn on the Wii U, that's the System Menu. I don't know how many IOSU's exist at the moment, but if they use the same method they did on the Wii's IOS, then there should be more than one.

    Obviously I am talking about a custom IOSU that a coder/developer is supposedly working on.

    No custom IOSU is being worked on currently; an exploit in IOSU to gain control of the ARM is being worked on.
