    If this happened to anyone, it would be a good idea to share this information.

    I voted that I bricked on the poll for fun so I assume everyone else did. There have been no reports on any website from what I see.

    What are the benefits of having REDNAND? Are loading times still huge as with Kernel Exploit?

    When big N will release an update you can update your rednand and continue enjoying online games while keeping your sysnand on 5.5.1.

    Are the loading times normal on with it or are they still the same as Kexploit?

    Except you can't because of the SEEPROM check.

    Last night, setting up redNAND worked like a charm. Only problem I had was the time redNAND took to setup after the dump, since I have no patience. But no actual problems for me!

    From what i understood it s an eprom on the wiiu, different from the sysnand, that is also beeing updated with console update.

    Updating that without updating the sysnand would result in a brick.

    So if you update your rednand, it will also update the SEEPROM and you ll brick.

    Specialists do not hesitate to correct me if i m wrong

    The reason that there's so many votes for that is because that was the only "NO" option for a little bit... I added another one which didn't brick and it's growing a lot bigger.

    Damn I was hoping you said they both managed to update rednand. I'm guessing if a update does come out we will be able to spoof the rednand like we can currently do with the normal nand??
