PSP day 1 hack was better.

That said I'm still waiting on the 3DS hack. I'll pay to have homebrew on the 3DS just to get rid of region lock, especially now that a Jump sequel is being made (and most likely on the 3DS).

I believe the initial testers of Wii homebrew discovered the partition is separate from the WiiU side. So I'm sure bricking the whole console is still possible but less likely.

This is sad for the people who bought this hoping the online wouldn't be the same as the Wii (Hackers, hackers everywhere...). Now we just need the 3DS to get some support. Flash carts must get boring after 2 years.

"...the Homebrew channel is just as likely to brick your Wii U as open up the potential for development on your console."

While it's true that this opens the door for you to run potentially poorly-written homebrew which may brick your console, this is misleading. The Homebrew Channel and its installer have not caused a single confirmed brick in all of the time it has existed. The same can not be said of Nintendo's official updates, which bricked hundreds if not thousands of consoles during their shoddy boot2 update included with System Menu 4.2.

Given the context of the paragraph and the full sentence, I don't believe it's misleading at all, qwertymodo. While I agree the Homebrew channel is, as far as console modifications go, a generally reliable piece of software, I would never encourage someone to install it without lengthy and extensive research.

Bluexy i am one of the experienced hombrew folk around here (some people here owe me for having an HBC in their wii) so i can attest that is pretty much safe install the HBC, send me a PM if you have any doubts on it, as long as you get your stuff right from the source, given how the installers work, on 4.2 and 4.3 some people have modded them to damage a wii, same goes for bad .WADS (install files of multiples purposes) there are some bad .WADS floating that completley toast a wii beyond repair.

Quite the contrary it prolonged their lives. Modding and homebrew has led to plenty of amazing things on the wii. It also means no bullshit region locking.

It is what it is I guess.

Its prob the equivalent of Horizon modding for xbox however you get console banned if you get caught using that
