    I found a youtube video that said it could take up to 2 hours on a 32GB Wii U system. Now from what I understand the chances of bricking are very low.

    I've been following https://github.com/FlimFlam69/WiiUTutorial/wiki to a T.

    In the black screen where redNAND is doing it's thing it seems to be hung up on slccmpt line. Is there anything to be concerned about? Or should I just be patient?

    See how the number on the right is 40000, and the number on the left is less than 40000? You have to wait for it to get to 40000

    I'd say be patient. I've installed redNAND twice and backed it up once. installing takes longer from what I remember. it does take a long time too, so just be patient with it.

    edit: if u've dumped the virtual wii's NAND, it takes about two to three times longer than that to the wii-u's. I think a lot of it has to do with the sd card when it comes to speed.

    For my "8GB" console, it was roughly:

    slc: 20 minutes
    slccmpt:1 hour and half (each sector was being reread 3 times, you can tell because it says "retry 2")
    mlc: 10 minutes or very little more

    it's faster to dump the NAND backup than it it is to create it. I dumped my NAND backup to my pc backup drive (2 or 3 of them actually) to retain tickets, and I don't think it took even an hour. u dump each of the three partitions urself, and it's pretty quick. however, creating a NAND backup takes considerably longer. even if u don't use it for redNAND, u'll still have a backup of ur NAND in case of a brick. :)
