    Do you think this will reinstall the IOS's for the vWii like i hear it did with 4.1 and 5.0 (I think it was 5.0 too)?

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Updates are almost always synchronized worldwide, so yes.

    Hurry up homebrew people.

    Nintendo remember last time you guys pumped out a new update every single time something happened in the Homebrew community? You ended up just annoying your customers and taking up too much space.
    How about spacing out these updates and making them worth a damn, instead of just trying to crush homebrew devs.
    Also Nintendo, this is why you aren't making friends with the Indy crowd, because you are jerks to them.

    I really hope they don't and learn from when Sony removed the OtherOS from the PS3.
    It sounded good on paper, but pissed off a lot of people

    They only say so. First real hack was done with help of OtherOS Linux. And when this hack appeared orher groups chimed in.

    Will this firmware bring anything useful as a feature? GamePad as a controller for the Wii games?

    don't count on it. get those servers blocked (or just do what i did and unplug the lan cable) and keep your auto standby off boys because this will be the one you don't want!

    I'm on 4.0.3 . Will I still be able to dodge updates by entering vWii ?
    I tried blocking URL but it doesn't work and blocking ips is hard for me.

    also a warning for those using quick boot that has enabled standby and the update will install without you knowing. you need to disable standby in the system settings!

    I don't really care about hacking my Wii U and besides it, I honestly fucking hate to wait for the system to download and then install an update.

    All I want is to play the games I have purchased god dammit! I don't want to watch it install, if for that, then I'd boot my PS3. :P

    It'd be a lot better if they made the menus run a lot faster, like, Settings takes a couple of seconds to load whereas in Xbox 360 it's instant.
