    Hey guys. New here. Before anyone says anything, yes, I am aware that I need to search the threads for information about my problem before posting. To avoid wasting anyone's time, I'll cut right to the chase: I'm getting error code 162-3006 (bad vIOS/blacklisted NUS) when updating.

    If you're still reading and willing to offer any advice, I would be extremely grateful. Unfortunately, I've made this a pretty difficult problem to resolve. To start off, like an idiot, I patched several vIOSs with the idea that there'd be no consequences on the Wii U side. I don't have a NAND dump because I originally believed there was no way to dump the vWii NAND. I also don't have any of the unmodified vIOSs backed up because, again, I was not aware Dump Mii NAND existed. Having heavily modified my Wii with no problems, I thought vWii wouldn't be any different. To make matters worse, I installed a Wii IOS36 thinking it was the same as a vWii IOS36. I stopped installing anything else when I learned that IOS and vIOS are different.

    My Wii U and vWii still function as normal, with the exception of not being able to update Wii U. I built a version of NUS Downloader that can download vWii titles, but without the vWii common key it's pretty useless. If anyone has any ideas how I can get my vIOSs back to normal, I would really, REALLY appreciate it.

    Install the correct vIOS's from the internet. They don't allow linking to those kinds of files here, but that doesn't mean you can't find them somewhere else.

    The problem has been solved! Thank you so much for your help! For those who are stumbling upon this thread looking for an answer to the error code, I solved my problem by getting a genuine vIOS36 and installing it.

    IOS36 (rev 3608): No Patches

    How did you know to replace vIOS36? It doesn't get flagged in the report. This one IOS58 (rev 6432): USB 2.0 shows something but that's AFAIK normal on vWii. Googling a bit will tell you to install an IOS36 with a newer build (v3864), is that what you did? Would be nice if SysCheck can flag these things.

    Yup. I compared his syscheck to mine, saw that his IOS36 revision was lower than mine, dumped my IOS36 and gave it to him, and he installed it. The update worked fine afterwards.

    This seems to be an extremely common error as of late, why do people keep installing a wii IOS36? Are they using the trucha bug installer?

    I can't speak for others, but that's exactly what I did. I'm officially done messing with any vIOSs. I don't really know what I'm doing so it's too risky.

    People seem to think the vWii is the same as the Wii, which is an understandable mistake, but it can bork your Wii U up bad.

    Its pretty sstraight forward when you only read the guides here, but there are so many guides out there made for the wii and then just changed for vwii, without actually changing the content of the guide
