    HBC, emu's, USB Loaders and everything else still seems to be working fine. Just letting you all know.

    It is up to you. I have tested everything and everything works fine. Installing wads, IOS, booting loaders, etc. So if it worked before and it works after, then you are probably safe to do it however you like.

    I really dont think it matters, you should be fine on any version but if you want to be 100% sure wait at least UNTIL TOMORROW or later tonight for more comments here.

    There have been no changes to vWii since october 1st. Should be good to go. 4.0.2 seems to be the smallest WiiU update to date as it only changed 2 titles (no idea what these channels are or do, but all the other updates had at least 3).

    NA changelog can always be found here. They do a fairly good job of keeping it up to date.

    Since launch, there's been what, 2 actual updates that were good? The spring and the launch update. And yet the WiiU is already at v.4.0...

    Pretty much. Not gonna update since there's no real need. The last update was the best one (off-screen homebrew apps mostly), but this was was meh.

    Right behind you
    I was highly disappointed since you still need a wiimote. I don't see why the buttons on gamepad couldn't be used like a classic controller. Now that would be awesome.

    But agreed, this update is nothing special.

    did anyone try to go on youtube with the internet browser? There was an issue on 4.0.0 and videos wouldn't play anymore.

    Maxternal actually explained why the buttons couldn't be mapped in vWii more, it's an overly complicated reason and can't be done, reprogramming, etc has to be done.

    Well, can't be done is hard to tell but something Nintendo would be willing to reprogram every single IOS in vWii mode for ... I doubt that part.

    Yeah, it would be a real PITA to program that extensively :P It would be nice, but I get to play Snes, N64, Genesis, etc on the game pad :D

    You should patent it and make a crap ton of money :P I would love to have something like that, it would make playing homebrew apps so much better :D
