    You should test sysnand before saying something that will likely brick someones wii u.

    Nothing wrong with it, was only nuked as a loadiine ready rls already existed. Wii U scene rules are all over the place.

    It got nuked by mistake because they thought it was another loadiine version the same as LiNKLES release but its ok, just ignore it, its a proper scene wud release ;)

    in fact, it's nuked because "the first released format wins".
    https://scenerules.org/p.html?id=2016_WiiU.nfo
    Either File format OR Wud format.

    Also, it's nuked for being mislabeled because it contains the region in the folder name instead of inside the nfo.

    but it's not the same region, so the xml from the wud is different. I don't know why they decided to nuke other regions as long as english is present, they are different disc content (even for very few files).

    I repeat, Wii U scene rules seem to be a bit of a mess. I personally think only full iso rls should be allowed instead of all those scrubbed loadiine ones. That feels more like p2p than scene to me.

    sorry, I didn't read your previous comment about the rules. I replied by quoting from the previous page.
    yeah, I also think only wud should be allowed and loadiine format be nuked. especially if loadiine format is not "clean" (dumped from a console, and not extracted from NUS, it could contains merged updates, wrong xml, missing rpl, etc.)
    they should allow different dumped region too. (like wii scene rules)

    The xml is not signed so it SHOULD work on sysnand but I wouldn't try.
