    Hello!, I'm making a dump of the NAND on my vWii, can I cancel it in any possible way?, if I turn off my console, will it brick my vWii?, or is it safe to stop in any possible way (Like removing the SD card, or turning off the console)??

    Don't stop it in progress. It's common sense.
    It's a dangerous process, and there are no "cancel" options for a very good reason.
    You'll likely brick your Wii U and Nintendo will refuse to repair it because you hacked it.

    Hmm isn't MPilgrim dumping a NAND? Which means he's reading the NAND and writing it to external storage?

    If that's so shouldn't cancelling a NAND dump be okay since it's not effecting the Wii U's files. I would NOT recommend cancellling or turning off your Wii U when you write to your NAND.

    But then the SD card could be damaged beyond repair.
    Not to mention any read/write operations on critical system storage like that are very risky. I really wouldn't pull the plug on the system... you're never sure whether the dumping operation doesn't indeed write to some flags somewhere.
    Common sense.

    Maxternal said you could eject the SD card, and it will resume when you re-insert it. It will not affect the dumping process or the console's files.
    Though, there's always a possibility to corrupt the SD card's file system.
