    I have written a homebrew app which needs to behave different on Wii vs. on a vWii (WiiU).

    To find out whether it runs on a Wii or a WiiU I'm currently checking the version of IOS58 - 5918,6175,6176 = Wii, 6432 = WiiU, other versions = cancel.

    However sometimes there are people who report getting errors and investigating showed that they somehow had the WiiU IOS on their Wii.

    Is there any reliable method a Wii homebrew can use to check if it runs on a Wii or a WiiU?

    Thanks, that works great. Much better than just checking IOS versions :P
