    Hey Guys,

    I just read the following two posts:
    I created a Unity Test Project with a legit Ticket (retail commonkey, not dev commonkey).
    So if I install this Game on my SysNAND, it wouldn't brick the console, am I right? o.o

    Can someone confirm this?
    Would cause the Install of a non-system title (which is not available through NUS or WUD) a brick? I just created a Game with UnityForWiiU and compiled it with retail-commonkey instead of the dev-commonkey.

    He wants to install in sysNAND, but is more safe in redNAND

    I was under the impression that the game will just fail to launch if not in sigpatched environment. I do not see why the app would brick the system menu.

    Precisely.
    I might be wrong, but I think the Wii U Menu is much better than the Wii Menu at handling corrupted banners. I believe it just shows a ? mark instead.
    But I mean, seriously, you have to actually try to corrupt TGA images using standard software.

    It is considered a system title. (I think) That or everyone are too scared to install it to sysnand because they don't want a brick.

    Likely the second.

    But did installing brick it?
    Only the settings bricked it.

    As for your question it should be 100% safe. Just install it to usb.

    It didn't bricked because of installation.
    It bricked after I checked some options there and the other time it bricked after i hardreseted my WiiU.

    Hard resetting the Wii U probably bricked from the unstable state RedNAND is right now. I doubt installing it to SysNAND would brick the Wii U. Using it for out of region game launching should be fine, which is what I want to use it for on SysNAND.

    If you think it doesn't brick your SysNAND, go ahead. I'm too scared to try it, tbh xD
    If it works, show us a video that shows that it works :3

    I checked the system.xml and I wonder what this would do:
    Code:
      <dev_mode type="unsignedInt" length="4">0</dev_mode>

    editing system.xml has a giant brick risk.
    You wouldn't want to brick like @NexoCube\

    At that rate installing sys config tool is safer
