    GC/Wii backup loader without rebooting into vWii mode, that would be cool

    Not that simple, until you have IOSU access you can only use it with games that can access the SD card normally (like golden said).

    You can't use GC/Wii games without booting into vWii mode, or having very advanced emulation of low-level hardware (plus IOS for Wii).

    Here I am smashing my head against a wall for updating to 5.5.0

    "It's okay to update Eric. Wii U backups are years away. The only reason to stay at lower firmware is to hack games. You don't care about hacking games. Update away. There won't be a firmware spoofer any time soon. There's no issue."

    I wanna go back in time and smack myself :wacko:

    why would you port something that the wiiu already does in vwii? lol if its to use the gamepad your much better off trying to hack the gamepad to use in vwii.

    Gambia, The
    HD textures and shaders! *_*

    Edit:
    Also >1x internal res and maybe [if the console can handle it] 2x AA! ^^
    I know, a Dolphin-port isn't necessarily needed, to achieve that, [or even able to run] I was joking! ;)

    wiiu has no power ever to emulate wii or GC, the only reason they run on vwii is becuase they arent emulated.

    Nintendont ported to WiiU?

    I think that would need IOSU kernel because you need to enable the rest of the hardware...

    Now that this stuff seems to get going, any news on the 5.4.0 userspace exploit @Marionumber1 / @NWPlayer123 ??
    Or an update on where it is currently standing and if it will get released apart from Nintendo patching it or not ??

    I really don't know.
    The only title I ever downloaded/installed from eShop on WiiU is netflix.
    I didn't even try game demo.

    Would the update installer make it possible to replace the browser version with an older version?
    I'm on 5.3.2, but I was curious if it were possible to make a firmware-specific installer that just rolls your exploitability back if you're on 5.4. or 5.5.
