Right now this Wii U hack can be used on firmwares 3.x.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.0, 5.0.0, and 5.1.0 according to the Readme file on the repository though it is confirmed the vulnerability is there on 5.3.2 too. There is still ongoing work for the 5.3.2 firmware. The exploit is not compatible for 5.4.0 firmware users though.
As this is a userland exploit, backup loaders or any modification that requires kernel level access is not possible.
What do you think about this new exploit? Please share your ideas in the comment section below.
