Since I didn´t found a noob questions topic like on the 3DS board, I´m going to create this topic. Sorry, everyone, if it´s in the wrong place. I´ve been reading the forum for a week, gathering information about this and I think I understand everything. I know you all must be tired of answering this questions over and over, so, to simplify, I will just post all I´ve learned and would like the veterans on this matter to confirm if everything´s right, point any mistake or add some important tip. My situation: I want to play backup copies of Wii games on my European (PAL) Wii U. For now, I´m not interested in any kind of emulators, just the Wii games, and I never had a Wii or did this process before. What I learned: - vWii is completely separated from WiiU, so even if I brick it, my WiiU interface will be all right; - Never install things made for softmodding Wii in the vWii; - Softmodding vWii will not interfere in updating the WiiU firmware, as long as I don´t mess with slots below IOS200; - To instal the Homebrew Channel (the first step), I need to have one of these games, from the same region of my WiiU: http://wiiubrew.org/wiki/WiiMode (this is the tricky part, because my WiiU is not from the region I live, I will have to do some searching for these) - To install the Homebrew Channel, I need to use a non-SDHC SD card (2GB or less); - After the Homebrew Channel is installed, I can use other types of storage, like a HD or SDHC Card to boot my games from; - It is a good practice to use DumpMiiNand to backup my NAND and Yet Another BlueDump Mod (YABDM) to backup individual vIOS without fake signing, because it can help a lot if I do some careless mistake in the future; - The main diferences between using EmuNAND or not is: if I don´t use EmuNAND, I can only boot games from the vWii internal storage (512 mb) and, if I brick it, I´m bricking my original NAND, which is harder to recover. So, based on these, I think using EmuNAND is the way to go because it allows me to boot games from external storage and it´s safer. I think that´s it. Like I said, I just wanted to do a last check with you guys, because I had no problems with my 3DS, thanks to all the info on this forum.
