    This is more something I ponder on occasion, I appreciate any answer from any and all developers.

    How do you arrive to conclusions that a certain action when it comes to exploits (and sometimes software) will result in a brick?

    The most obvious answer is through testing actions and having the result being a brick, but I highly doubt devs are buying a new Wii U test after test - otherwise Nintendo might make enough money to think the console isn't dying.

    Are you guys constantly backing up the NAND and restoring it after every brick? That would get annoying I would think.

    Or is there some sort of easy answer I'm missing? Or maybe more than one answer? Thanks for reading, at any rate.

    What you said. They back up the NAND and restore it. Not as hard as you think once you get used to it.
