So before I begin, I just have a few questions to put my mind at ease.

    When I softmod the vWii on my Wii U, does it have any affect on the Wii U side. Like say I softmod my vWii and then go about playing my Wii U games as normal like playing games online, doing stuff in the MiiVerse and buying/download stuff in the Wii U store. Is there anyway for Nintendo to know that my vWii is softmodded and will it in anyway affect the things I do on the Wii U? Also, is there a chance that future updates to the Wii U will either overwrite my vWii softmod or prevent me from re-softmodding my vWii in the future. Thanks in advance for your help.

    softmod will NOT effect the wiiu. however, the wiiu update did mess with the aspect ratio on the vwii mod. there is a temp fix in the first post of this thread.

    nintendo generally doesnt scan for modded consoles. they never did with the wii. i had my modded wii online since 08 and never got banned for it being modded or me playing mario kart wii off my hard drive (probably one of the 3 games i played on the wii).

    so far, the softmod on the vwii has NOT been affected by wiiu updates, sans the aspect ratio bug.

    As far as I know, Wii U and vWii are two distinctly separate entities. Wii U doesn't know anything about vWii and visa-versa. (Think of vWii like running a Virtual Machine on your computer so you can have a version of Linux running inside your Windows machine. vWii works similarly with the Wii U).

    While this doesn't mean that a Wii U update can't ever disturb vWii, so far no update has messed with it.

    Wii U will work just fine with a modded vWii.

    There was one other question I forgot to ask. I still occasionally buy stuff from the Wii store. If I softmod my vWii, will I still be able to use the store and buy stuff or should I avoid using it once it's softmodded?

    You can still buy stuff. The shop channel is unaffected.

    Hey cjizzle has there been any worthwhile updates to any of the vWii Homebrew since the last update of this guide?

    So I successfully was able to install the Homebrew Channel onto my vWii on my Wii U. I stopped there and didn't go any further because I remember reading another guide where it had you back up your NAND and keys.bin using a program named "xyzzy" and "Dump Mii NAND tool (by Maxternal)". Once those are backed up then it continues on with the guide just like your guide here. I've always trusted and used your guides here above anyone else's. I was just wondering if there was a reason why your guide doesn't have me back those up and whether or not I should do so before I go any further. If you'd like I can provide you with a link to the other guide if it helps and you'd like to review it. I didn't provide it because I think it's against the rules to link to another forum. Could be wrong though.

    You can back up the nand and keys if you wish to do so. The only reason I didn't include that in the guide is because there is absolutely nothing you can do with them. There is no restoration process. As of when I originally wrote this guide and now over a year later there still is nothing that you can do with those files. Most guides for the Wii had you back them up because you could use them to recover from a brick. I didn't want to give anyone a false sense of security, which is why I left it out and mentioned numerous times not to install wads. Personally, I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    As for new apps, yes there are some. What is in this guide works fine for most everything. Maybe sometime soon as time allows I will update the app pack. I guess I've been following the old concept of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it".

    When I ran the IOS 236 Installer v8 MOD I noticed it said something about a certain IOS needed to be on the root of the SD card (it went rather quick and I didn't want to run it again in case that would mess something up just to read it again). You guide doesn't say anything about putting an IOS on the root of the card before running it. I'm assuming everything worked but just wanted to make sure. I know in your update history you said something about not needing the base IOS on the sd card root but it looks like that was only for the d2x cIOS Installer 2.2 MOD. Other than that, everything is working great with no issues. Thanks again for this guide.
