    I have CFG Loader and nintendon't on my Wii U's vWii mode, which I use to play Gamecube and Wii games. If I transfer everything to a different Wii U (from the white basic to the Windwaker edition) will it survive the trip? Will the transfer fail, or do i run the risk of something breaking?

    Thanks.

    It will probably do the same thing that a System Transfer from a real Wii to Wii U will do. Move the legitimate titles and delete the homebrew/pirated titles.

    I'm not certain though, so I'd recommend getting a second input from someone else on this topic before going ahead and doing it.

    Not really an issue unless it decides to format my SD card, though I will have to re-jailbreak my Wii U. Damn, I'll have to borrow that Lego game again.

    No you don't, just use wuphax to install HBC without the need for a disc game.

    ...My Wii U side is untouched, and I see no reason to change that. I use only CFG Loader and Nintendon't to play games that Nintendo has not made available to purchase from their eShop.

    runnign wuphax doesn't really change anything on Wii U side though, you can just use wiiubru.com on the console itself

    1. start appstore first to get wuphax (you'll need the hackmii installer boot.elf on SD yourself)
    2. then launcher homebrew launcher and run wuphax
    3. go into wiimode and run miichannel or whatever wuphax rpelaced to install homebrew channel
    4. reboot wii u and run wuphax again to restore the mii channel to original
    no you can safely delete the wiiu folder and boot.elf from your SD card

    your wii u is still perfectly vanilla no permanent changes except ofcourse in you vWii

    Update: It's all good to go.

    I performed the system transfer, and as expected HBC and my loader forwarder were deleted. Then I ran Return of the Jodi to reinstall Homebrew, and I redownlaoded a CFG forwarder WAD and used "Yet Another..." to install that. Everything works, including Wii and Gamecube games. Just have to resync all controllers with the new Wii U.

    I still have a bunch of garbage on my SD card (along with a wad manager that just crashes on start), but it all works fine so I'm not complaining. I'm surprised I didn't have to install IOS 46 or 248 or whatever to make it all work, but I'm not complaining.
