    Without doing a system transfer? My Wii is hacked. And I'm worried doing a system transfer might mess something up. Plus I would have to update the Wii firmware, which is a no no.

    You don't have to update your Wii, just your Shop Channel, and it won't mess up your Wii using the Transfer Tool.

    Will the save data be erased from my Wii?

    Yes. That's why you do a NAND backup or use Savegame Manager GX.

    How do I just update the shop channel and not the rest of the system?

    Use ModMii to download the latest Shop Channel and install it with a wad manager.

    you can move saves (not all but some)
    copy the save(s) for the wii to the SD card
    RUN the game(s) on the wiiU
    copy the save(S) from the SD card to the WiiU

    as long as the save to not copy protected it should work

    I just went to data management on my normal wii, then copy (sd card must be in!) than put the sd card in my wii u, data management>sd card then find the one you copyied before and select it, then press copy or move
    easy!
