Hackers release Homebrew Channel for Wii U

A week after hackers showed off that they could launch their homebrew application on the Wii U they've released this application to the public.

Right now it only works in Wii mode and doesn't really do anything Wii U related but it will in the future. (Nintendo, Wii, Wii U)

not surprising since Wii U runs Wii in it's own environment like an emulator. so naturally it was just a matter of tweaking the old homebrew to work around it.

This news should say homebrew channel "on" the Wii U, not for it because it doesn't work on the Wii U at all. It works only on the Wii emulator in the Wii U and it can't do anything at the moment.

This is just as misleading as the last two time times this news was posted on here.

There is a homebrew channel for the "Wii" and it works only in Wii mode just as Gamecube hacks and action replay worked in GC mode on the Wii before the Wii was hacked but weren't able to effect the actual Wii. Also, last I checked no software or game actually homebrew works with it on the Wii U in Wii mode, just the channel.

Only hardcore pirates and Nintendo haters will be jumping for joy at this news.

What can be done with this?

Can you update the console if installed?

Don't give a shit about hacks. I buy my own games

Will it let you play Gamecube games or use the pro controller?
