    Nope, all it patches is stuff in the Cafe OS portion, vWii is untouched.

    Yes, vWii it's in another NAND chip so it should keep working, but it's very strange to a Nintendo update brick the vWii, unless it touches a vIOS, but they need what are they doing, the 5.1.0U update had touched the IOS62, and added a new channel.

    no they can't noticed a hacked WiiU - Vwii because the Vwii is ''sandbox'' and is not used/recognized by WiiU mode(Cafe OS)

    Nah, they didn't ban in the Wii, the vWii is just identical... anyway, they don't pay attention in vWii hacking, if they do, with the 5.1.0 update they should deleted the homebrew channel and replace the custom vIOS... we don't know in Cafe OS yet...

    Do note that the browser exploit was patched in the new firmware though so you won't be able to run WiiU homebrew which is already in the works.

    It is actually ON the same NAND but in a different bank of the same chip.

    according to f0f:
    All of the updating and downloading for vWii actually happens in WiiU mode.

    So the WiiU is vWii aware but mostly likely not the other way around.
    This is also the reason a messed up vWii doesn't allow the WiiU to update properly.

    we have an exploit but no actual home-brew just yet but its just on the horizon the exploit works on 4.0-5.1.0 ...patched on 5.1.1 so keep away from 5.1.1 if possible

    But, NWPlayer say Webkit it's full of bugs, so we need to wait to they do a new one, I'm only saying it's stills possible of got a new exploit.

    Ifixit is wrong about their WiiU info(unless they fixed it recently).
    The WiiU has both an EMMC chip (either 8gb or 32gb some of which holds some of the WiiU system software essentials) and a 1GB NAND chip which is split(evenly?) by banks between WiiU and vWii.
