Some people are concerned about updating their Wii U and it bricking their vWii. That's not going to happen and here's why: vWii is "essentially" a Wii but not to it's entirety. The vWii is a built in emulator, just like how the original Xbox 360 came with a built in Xbox emulator same with the original PS3 although to an extent this is a full-blown emulator not just backwards compatibility. The main reason i'm talking about that is because like an emulator on a PC you'd have to manually update it. When updating a Wii U you're not updating the vWii. The vWii cannot be downgraded (It would take a substantial amount of time and effort to figure out a way to because the way of doing so would be entirely different than how you downgrade a regular Wii) and cannot be updated because like I stated, in essence it can't be updated through the emulator and for the Wii U to update it it would technically have to delete it and re-download the entire thing. Now new models of the Wii U could technically have an updated version of the vWii but the probability of that happening is extremely, extremely slim. If you already have your vWii homebrewed you're absolutely fine. The only way you're going to brick your vWii is if you screw it up yourself. Just wanted to put that put there. I come to these forums often to get my softmodding/hacking/whatever done and decided to start posting on here and came across a few threads about this.
