    Hope this is the right place to ask this question!

    I ran across a tutorial on how to set up RedNAND.
    I've been searching, but since I don't know what it is I'm looking for, I really don't know where to look.

    I take it RedNAND has something to do with WiiU's NAND, or?

    What is it? How does it work? What are the benefits?

    Help a poor sod....

    RedNAND is a second NAND on your Wii U console. You can mess around with it as much as possible and brick it if you want. The benefits is installing pirated DLC. I don't recommend it because first of all you have to launch web browser every time to launch RedNAND and there are no auto-boot on startup hacks. Although if you want to use it you can.

    Didn't feel like giving a very confusing explanation. Just wanted to let him know what it basically is like.

    Oh, so currently, the only thing exclusive to redNAND at this point is pirated DLC and the ability to brick it without much worry (I mean, sure, nobody wants that, but it's better than your sysNAND)?
    I'm just asking since to my knowledge, we can already install titles with modified wupinstaller, and all homebrew is available with the same method as usual.

    Plus the ability to install virtual console titles plus the ability with sysconfigtool to play out of region games plus a whole lot more abilities.

    in terms of 3ds hacking (if you have or had one) its basically a emunand or emulated nand, a virtual system copy.

    A long while worth a brick-less risk factor

    I wouldn't be throwing the word "brickless" around when your talking about tools that allow to mess with nands. Take a look at the 3ds scene...
