Hackers deliver Homebrew Channel to Wii U

by on11 December 2012

Only in Wii mode so far, but a sign of things to come

The Wii U hasn’t even been out that long, and hackers have figured out how to get the Wii Homebrew channel up on the Wii U. While the Wii Homebrew channel is only working on the Wii U in Wii mode, it still is a start that many are hoping is a back door into hacking the actual Wii U.

Nintendo has already started letting it be known that activation of the Wii Homebrew Channel on the Wii U or Wii consoles invalidates the warranty on the console. In addition, Nintendo is letting it be known that they are prepared to repel hacking attempts on the Wii U console. This isn’t the first time Nintendo has taken such a tough stance.
