    hi since the wii u's launch i had alot of unanswerd questions, & concerns about a few things, im sure lots of others may also & would like to know. so i decided to make this post. seeing there's no other place to find these answers.

    some things i can confirm from testing on my wii u.

    other things homebrew related.


    as for a few other notes, it may be possible in the future that we will be able to merge old & new account data on the phone today i was told by a rep that there looking into that.

    Ah, I see. Thanks.
    I guess it's the same with all real user's information then (first name, last name, date of birth)
    I don't have an account yet, so I don't know what are possible to edit or not.

    Can I transfer the Wiiware from my old hacked Wii that I installed via WADS to my WiiU? Or is there a possibility of it messing up my wiiU

    All of my WiiWare is stored on my SD card, if that makes a difference

    If you talk about the official Transfer tool from Wii -> vWii, it will not transfer the WiiWare/Virtual Console/Homebrew you didn't officially bought on eShop.

    It doesn't really "transfer" the files.
    It's checking which games you bought on the eShop, Delete the channels installed on Wii and deactivate them for the Wii (you can't download them anymore on Wii).
    You put the SD card on WiiU's virtual Wii, and it connect to eShop again and reactivate the Channels you bought on Wii, then it downloads the channels you had installed on your Wii to look like it "transfered" them. (the pikmin did a lot of work)

    I don't know what happen to the (official) WiiWare you have on SD card. Maybe they are resigned for vWii and you can play directly from SD like on Wii without downloading them again, maybe you will have to download them again from eShop.


    About the non official Wad files installed using Wad Manager, they will not be transfered.
    You can reinstall them on vWii one by one with Wad Managers, like you did on Wii. You can also use SavegameManagerGX to restore the save files

    I'll answer my own question...

    While in Wii-mode the Wii U downloads does indeed stop.
