it's "kind of" possible.
it's not possible to install a theme to your vWii (brick risk etc.), but you can do it on Sneek ! (to test it and don't risk a brick)

I don't remember if someone already did it, maybe you could ask diddy (I think he is part of the wii theme team, he should know about vWii too)

yes, it's emuNAND with full redirection (not only the current game).
it means that ALL the vWii is actually running on your SD or USB instead of the NAND chipset. ALL if it, even system menu, which lets you try things without risking a brick.

There's a thread someone in Wiiu hacking forum which explain how to setup vWii Sneek. it's from JoostinOnline (it's easier to find if you search by user)

Isn't vWii just a modified 4.3 system menu?

Yes but from my understanding, may be wrong, you have to have boot access like with bootmii or something similar to get the themes to load. Otherwise it either won't work or will brick the vWii. With Sneek I'm gonna guess you have that access.

I've only now had time to actually check it out, and, well...
This only tells me how to set up Sneek, but I'd like to run my emuNand from USB. Is that possible to do on vWii?

when reading the tutorial, there's a step where you choose if you want Sneek (sd) or Uneek (usb).
Oh, okay. Thanks.

Where is that part? I can't find it. :unsure:

I don't remember if it's using crediar's tool (sneek installer?),but it's an option in that tool that you choose if you want SD or USB and enable "di" or not.

I'm sad about the fact themes shouldn't be used on vWii officially ever since I've hacked it.
I've set up (s)neek but only to use it from USB Loader GX (from my real NAND) for WiiWare.
So I'm never facing the emunand system menu and I would love to have a dark theme in my real vWii nand so badly.
