    Hope someone can confirm the safety of having vWii HBC.

    I was expecting a notification, but nope, I had to go to the system settings to download it. Weird. Takes about 30 mins to download on my end fyi.

    It's not out for me quite yet, however everything is undergoing maintenance so I would imagine it will be ready soon.

    Go to the system settings and click the update option. I had to do that.

    How is that people on IGN have "Access" to it?

    call me paranoid but that sound like you can no longer stop the system from updating itself without just turning off WiFi (kinda like what some have reported with the new 3DS update) even if this particular update doesn't patch vWii or future vulnerabilities for Wii U hacking, it would make it harder to AVOID getting such "fixes" applied when they do come out in the future.

    Ugh. Time remaining is 1:23min for me. Oh well. I'll be glad when it's done updating and I can access the new things.

    Looks like it... It was the first think I ran when I started the vWii

    Didn't try any backup loaders, but I bet they'll work as usual.

    Another thing to note is that the hold B to boot to wii mode doesnt seem like it will work when you dont have a wiimote currently synced to the system. It didnt boot up when i just held B with the gamepad.. It just tossed be back to the log in screen

    It wasn't available at the time of reading this. I checked the downloads tab it said no updates available. Turned on the Wii U an hour later and now it's there and downloading.

    It's probably 'hidden' so their servers don't get crushed.

    ^ Would make sense. It's an update that's seen a long time coming. Lots of stuff everyone wants (and by the download time, I'd say fairly large.)

    Updated, got that Wii U pad error once but it updated without issues. Most excellent.
