    Hello Gbatemperz.

    I just had an idea - maybe a stupid one, so please stop me if I say bullshit... But would it be possible to replace completely the vWii nand (vNand ? :rolleyes:) with a real Wii one? I don't mean with homebrews from now on, but with ProgSkeet for example. It would solve many problems with Wii homebrews running on a Wii U.

    Have a nice day. ;)

    It would be 100% possible to brick doing this.

    The drivers in the IOS are different between vwii and normal Wii because the hardware is different as well as the extra level of encryption required by the Wii U processor spell an instant brick if you do this.
