    Since my Wii U is already softmodded, is there any harm in me trying to use the smash stack exploit just to test if it will work? I'm not going to go through the whole softmodding process but I will at least see if smash stack will glitch out and start the hackmii program.

    No Clutz450 there is no harm. I would love for you to try it actually and tell me why it wont work on my system. Updating the Wii U still keeps your homebrew without any issues. But to re hack the vWii at least for me with the smash stack did not work. I went and bought the Indiana Jones game and tried that way and that worked perfect to install Homebrew.

    I have brought this situation to the attention of the rest of the staff. Hopefully CJizzle (the author of this guide) or one of our other staffers can try this out and verify if it is true or not and update the guide accordingly.

    Thank you for bring this up juan71287

    So I just tried the Smash Stack exploit on my Wii U which has version 5.1.0U and I was able to load up the HackMii Installer. I didn't go any further than that since my vWii is already softmodded and I didn't want to risk an accidental brick. Now I don't know if it worked for me because my vWii was already softmodded. I'm going to assume so since the Wii U update didn't affect my softmodded vWii at all. It sounds like from other posts that people who are trying to softmod their vWii for the first time are the ones having the problem loading the exploit. I hope you find this information useful.

    Thanks for the report. It is appreciated.

    Now, to the meat and potatoes of the issue lol. The above quoted reasoning is invalid. If you used this guide to softmod, all original vWii system files were left untouched. An exploit was used to install the HBC, and you installed a few cIOS, thats it. If the exploit to run the SSBB hack had been patched there would be no way to get it to work, regardless of if you are softmodded or not. An original disc of SSBB uses an untouched IOS and the untouched SM.

    My money is on people either not doing it right or not using a compatible SD card.

    @cjizzle Yes, I used this guide to softmod using the Smash Stack exploit. I did nothing else to it after that. Thanks for explaining how the exploit and softmod works and why my reasoning was wrong.

    @juan71287 Just a shot in the dark but are you deleting all the custom stages before you put in your SD card? What I did to get the exploit to work was delete my SSBB gamesave and had it create a new one. Then I deleted the 3 custom stages, backed out to the title screen, put in my SD card with the exploit on it, waited about 20 seconds and then went back to the custom stages and the exploit loaded. If that still doesn't work then I'm out of ideas. Best of luck to you and I hope you can get it to work.

    You should probably include a link to UStealth and a brief explanation and it pretty much makes the formatting issue all irrelevant.
