    So this is something I wrote today which may be helpful to people who dont have a required game to hack vwii.

    UPDATE: this update is one month after the initial release of v1.0, this is much simpler to do now with v1.1!
    Grab the current elf release from the releases tab.
    Download the hackmii installer and put only the boot.elf from that zip on your sd card root.
    Make sure to unplug any and all usb devices before following any of these steps.
    Put the wuphax.elf into your wiiu/apps folder on your sd card and run it in homebrew launcher.
    Press A to back up your current mii channel and inject it with wuphax.
    After the wiiu restarted, go into wii mode and run mii channel, install homebrew channel from there.
    To restore the mii channel just run the elf again and press B this time.

    Awww man, I was hoping for a Cafe2Wii kind of situation where we can use the gamepad in vWii.
    Still, this is a pretty neat thing to have!
    Really nice work FIX!
    You never disappoint. :D

    Why do you want to know?
    Great, if only this existed a year ago... but still great for those of us who don't have a required game!

    Does this need 2 GB sd or we can use SDHC?

    And I bought Batman and hacked it with that. Oh well but at least it's good to have more methods available. :D

    Sweet! Now I can finally get around to selling my original Wii that's been collecting dust when I'm not in the mood for some backup loading on there.
