    I want to know that will installing wii virtual console wads on my Wiiu have a chance of bricking it?
    I am rather new to the scene and just got hold of the ropes, and this question is from what I have heard about it
    If it isn't dangerous, a site from where I cand dowload wads would also be aperciated very much

    You need to find a system menu wad, use something like Modmii to download it.

    See the Install WAD option? Dolphin will set up a Wii-like nand structure once you install a wad in /User/Wii/

    I don't remember if you need the System Menu IOS, if you want to avoid a possible issue just download and install it as well with Modmii.
    Once you have it installed you can install channel wads and Load Wii System Menu from the tools menu. This is useful for testing the icon and banner.

    BTW I've installed many injected VC wads for a very long time and never encountered any issues.
