    - 64GB SD card got damaged and I now can't load Rednand.

    - I have tons of games, DLC and updates installed on external HDD via USB Helper and WUP Installer.

    - Want to buy another card, restore Rednand to the way it was before.

    - Back when I made this hack, I used sdios Nand Manager to back up the mlc, slc and slccmpt Rednand files, all of which I have currently on my PC.

    Question is: can I use sdios Nand Manager or a similar app to inject the rednand files into the new card and continue to access all the games I have installed on the HDD?

    If that's not possible, will I be able to access those games if I create a new Rednand again from scratch (by inserting a brand new card into the Wii U and loading .fw file)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, this is the part you're talking about, right?

    How to transfer redNAND to another SD Card
    • Dump redNAND to your PC. Follow either the Windows or Linux section. You should end up with 3 files: 1 for SLC, SLCCMPT, and MLC.
    • Backup your data from the SD card.
    • Place cfwbooter and the fw.img file on your new SD card, put it in your Wii U and start the dumper like usual.
    • Once it formats the SD card, press and hold the power button until the system turns off. This should take a couple of seconds.
    • Take the SD card and put it back into your computer.
    • Inject the 3 files you dumped earlier to the SD card.
    • Once all that is done, transfer all the data from your old SD card to the new one.
    • Put the SD card back into your Wii U and boot redNAND.

    My question though is if I do this will I be able to access the games I have installed on my HDD just like before?
