    Can it not be emulated? I know the wii used similar parts to that of the GCN, is that also true for the WiiU?

    At this point in time, no it can't.

    Obviously not yet but in the long run, do you expect GCN to be playable?

    My concern at this point, is whether or not the vWii is "visible" to the WiiU. The implications of that are the possibility of a WiiU being able to check for a modified vWii instance, either through a WiiU update, or just a built-in or soon-to-be built-in feature. It'd be a bugger to brick your WiiU (or even flag it as modified) by hacking the vWii. However, I don't believe that Nintendo would do that. It's my assumption that there is an inherent benefit to "allowing" the vWii to be hackable, in that, the plethora of customers that currently have modded Wii's will be able to move to the WiiU, and thus purchase the console. The feeble attempt to "prevent" hacking when they have the ability to make it outright impossible (via a read-only filesystem) tells me that vWii modifications are implicitly allowed.

    It seems to me that a read-only filesystem, while it might make the Wii "unhackable," would be entirely pointless. There could be no updates, no virtual console games, no data transfer from the original Wii, no game channels (like from WiiFit), etc. etc. And we would still be able to run code. Game exploits like Smash Stack simply can't be fixed by a software update (because Nintendo failed to plan ahead and make updatable). While I agree that Nintendo knew that the vWii was backache before they released it, I'm not sure that they are being as malicious as you think.

    This is all just my opinion, of course. I guess we'll find out in the coming weeks.

    I have the following doubt: what happens if we install the cios d2x on the WiiU (current firmware 2.1.0) in wiimode and then nintendo will release a new firmware (e.g 2.2.0 or 2.3.0...).
    Can we continue to use the WiiU connected on internet ? will it be possible to upgrade the WiiU firmware even if the wiimode was modified with the bios d2x ?

    Nobody knows yet. AFAIK, you can decline updates. If you install any homebrew, decline any updates until we know more.

    Naah they make it just hard enough so that hackers brick some Wii's, then eventually people get it hacked. People start buying it because its the only system which you can hack, then update it by accident=brick=buy another wii.
    Awesome money circle.
