A Wii-to-vWii Transfer question that's (probably) unique.

    I'm sorry if someone has had this same situation but I didn't want to fish through the other mllion transfer questions.

    Alright, I'll try to keep this short.

    Two years ago, old White Wii stopped reading discs, so I installed the Homebrew Channel having nothing to lose. So I then buy shiny black Wii to play discs and stuff.

    Now I buy a Wii U and then cheap Wii U VC offer happened. Here's the situation.

    I want to transfer the Virtual Console games I legitimately bought using old White Wii to the Wii U's vWii WITHOUT transferring the Homebrew Channel or the one wad I installed.

    I'm a bit of a noob about this, but I haven't connected old White Wii to the internet since I installed the Homebrew channel. So here are my questions.

    1.) If I connect to the Wii Shop with old White Wii, is there a chance of it bricking?
    2.) If I try to transfer old White Wii over to the vWii while it still has Homebrew Channel/Illegitimate wad installed, will it brick my old White Wii?
    3.) Will the Homebrew Channel+Illegitimate wad transfer over to the vWii? Because I don't want it to.
    4.) Assuming the Homebrew Channel+Illegitimate wad doesn't transfer over to the vWii, will I have to reinstall them on my old White Wii?

    I'm assuming how the transfer works is by taking your Wii Shop download info and transferring it to the vWii, but I want to know exactly what I'm walking into before walking into it.

    Thanks in advance and I apoligise if this has been asked before.

    Illegitimate titles will simply be ignored, the transfer tool will not touch them.
    But you can make a bootmii backup on the Wii if you want beforehand just to be sure though.

    AND restore your saves and VC games to your original Wii later. Just don't set foot on the shop channel on the original Wii or your games will stop working. I deleted the shop channel to avoid this.

    Now I'm confused.

    What games will stop working? The Homebrew-installed games or legit games? I don't want to transfer the Homebrew Channel, just the normal *bought from Wii shop* games. And either way, I'm going to have to go on the shop channel to download the transfer tool.

    If you restore the NAND backup on the original Wii then go in Shop Channel, the legit WiiWare/VC will stop functioning on the original Wii, I believe.

    Ah, now I see. Well, I'm not going to bother with a NAND backup anyway.

    It does more then this, is actually removes the legit WiiWare and VC. meaning a NAND restore or WADs would be necessary to fix it. Since i have BootMii/Boot2, i Deleted my shop channel completely via AnyTitle Deleter considering its 100% useless because of that.
    I would not advise anyone without BootMii/Boot2 or a NAND backup to do so though.
