    Update will become available after the e-shop is up.

    IGN users have reported starting the download process. Hope this doesn't kill vWii homebrew.

    The update will automatically download, but I have to manually install it right? Don't want to risk losing homebrew until there is confirmation it's safe.

    Yep, shouldn't be forced after it downloads. I don't think Nintendo will touch the vWii much aside from the quick boot option, but I'll wait until others confirm.

    I had to go to the system settings and check for updates before it would download. Was expecting a notification. 5 minutes left.

    I haven't had the chance to really use my wiiU yet because of complications recently with my housing situation but I hope this update doesn't remove the hbc from wiimode.
    Otherwise I hope they continue with updates and improvements for people, nice.

    Oh it's nothing against you or people who do. I just don't put that stuff on my consoles and only put official stuff on it.
