    yep. Its was bound to happen. Fortunately I got my entire wiiu dumped before making any modifications. so how do i perform the hard mod. or what tools do I need.


    EDIT: application I used for the dump is ft2sd. I dumped all directories. from mlc slc. and vwii slc aka slccmpt

    I removed the contents of slccmpt which I guess the wiiu in theory does a check for that. and the wiiu expects it to be full. and since I deleted the contents (please call me a idiot now) it sends the wiiu into a angry loop because of it expectancy to be full. it makes sense, because some modfications to vwii ios causes problems to the system itself

    This is how to hardmod slc (second picture explains the difference for connecting slccmpt instead)
    This is (probably!) the flashing software...
    but you must have a disk image to flash, file-level backups are no good (unless you have the keys and nands can be converted with something like Betwiin? Which I doubt but you can backup first and you can't get much worse either)

    I dont think a hardmod restore of the vwii/wiiu system nand is possible yet, it can be backed up but not restored at present. However it is not impossible, just no public tools/methods exist to do so as of now. Sorry in advanced if my info is wrong.
