    my friend recently messued his vwii trying to install homebrew and some other apps. The system turns on and everything but when entering wii mode on the wii u and trying to launch the game it goes straight to a black screen and locks the console. When installing homebrew he forgot to make a backup nand files luckily when i did i had done so. So i was just wondering how can i restore the nand onto my buddies vwii?

    Depends what was done to the console? If you cant access wii mode at all= screwed. But if u can get in wii mode then there myt b some hope of resolving the problem

    you he can access wii mode go through the menus and such he just can't launch a game, when he hits the start prompt it goes to a black screen and locks the console.

    Then he's not totally screwed :) What exactly did he install? Sounds like some CIOSes in slots below 200?

    That is correct. Find out what wad files he installed and install the originals
