    No need for abductions... :P
    I was already working on the loader side (reverse engineering the Wii U's loader process) with Relys and NeKit a long time ago.
    It's fairly trivial to patch the already existing loader to allow running unsigned code, but replacing it entirely would be a much more interesting project. Still, there are higher priorities at the moment like NWPlayer123 stated.

    While I agree, he's just enthusiastic, like the rest of us.

    Better than the first. Get rid of the "E" and I'd say it looks pretty good

    Although, keep in mind that unless [user]Hykem[/user] creates an exploit that allows us to run code from the System Menu (which, in all honesty, I don't doubt he'll dive into after the kernel exploit), we will be confined to launching from the Web Browser

    Ok thanks. Any1 know if I can keep stock firmware or if the WiiU has to update some mandatory fw on the first boot? I´m thinking about buying one but I´d really like to keep the firmware that the unit is delievered with. I´m just guessing it´s safer to stay on the lowest fw as possible.

    Just don't connect the Wii U to the internet and it wont know whether or not it needs an update

    He would have to set up some form of IP/Domain block since the exploit is going to be browser related, doesn't it?

    Yes, but I'm just simplifying things since a) that isn't released yet and b) he doesn't even have his Wii U yet, if I'm reading correctly

    Fair enough then.

    Although once he gets it, he should leave his Wii U without any internet connection and just update via disc (probably Smash) so that he can still be on an exploitable and compatible firmware.
    Once the exploit is released, then we talk about blocking domains. :P

    I made this in 10 minutes:
    (Idea by Zedd91)
    The HomebrU Channel.
    As we all know, the Internet always contains totally accurate information...

    Hykem's Wii U arrived today, but he needs a disc to upgrade to v2.X and power adapters. Expect to hear something by Monday ;) it's probably too low to auto-update

    It was a good idea too! (I did edit my post to give you credit for the idea.)

    I think instead of having a Homebru "Channel" we could replace or use the Tvii Icon at the bottom and redirect it to a homebrew loader or something?
    something like this:
    WiiU_Screen.
