    Hello guys,

    I read that homebrew is now available for wii U but it is possible to transfert all the stuff we have in the vWii on the Wii U ? Like homebrew channels with all the emulators, etc or if its not worth and I am better to keep my stuff as is ?

    Thanks :)

    No, sorry :(
    Homebrews are made specifically for each plaform (though they may be ported), so Wii U homebrews are different (and newer) than wii ones and not all of the wii homebrews have corresponding ones for wii u. I suggest you to take a look at wiiubru.com (you should see a list of homebrews) :)

    You can't transfer homebrew from the vWii side to the Wii U side. If anything, ports of those said homebrews would need to be made, and that doesn't look very likely just yet, if not, ever.

    And I find it more easier to access them from the Wii menu than from the Wii U's browser anyway.

    Are you really thinking about the WiiU homebrew, or the vWii part of the WiiU?

    You can transfer and use all your Wii homebrew on WiiU by using the vWii mode.
    all your games, emulators, utilities (thought, you should be careful with system utilities, they are dangeroud on vWii), game loaders, etc.

    edit:
    don't mind, I misread :P
    I thought you talked about wii to wiiu, sorry.
