Wii U Menu is a channel installed in every vWii that exits back to Wii U mode. It was put there so that people do not need to search everywhere for how to return to the Wii U Menu, and so that less modifications to the System Menu would be necessary.

This title seems to use group ID ZZ; this is presumably a group ID used on dummy channels, but has not been seen anywhere else.

Hacking Wii U Mode

Because it is possible to take over the ARM core via a cIOS, it may seem that it is possible to use the mechanism used by this channel to disable the hardware protection that blocks Wii U mode. However, all this channel actually does is reboot the system, meaning the only way to clear the protection register is to reboot, clearing all code and preventing a cIOS from taking over. It may be possible to hack Wii U Mode by modifying some wires, but there are currently easier ways to hack it.
