    It's on the Wii Shop Channel already. I mean, it's of no use to most people yet, I just thought it was interesting. I guess you could beat the crowd or something. :wink:

    I actually just noticed that myself. Came online to see if anyone had any info.

    (noticed it while trying to find that elusive youtube channel.)

    Anyway, downloaded it. Just out of curiosity. Won't even have the means to get a Wii U for a while.

    From what I've read you need to initiate the transfer on the WiiU, so it's not exactly useful until tomorrow (not for me anyway). Out of curiosity I checked to see if it was there since the WiiU update is live now. :)

    If either of you have already downloaded it, could you please check the title ID with Wii Mod?

    Hm, stand by on that. I actually deleted HBC temporarily ahead of transferring stuff to WiiU tomorrow, but I can letterbomb it back on quick.

    I'm checking on the title ID now. I actually installed it to the SD card. What's most interesting to me is that in the description it says that you have to switch the Wii U into Wii mode run an option on the Wii U from Wii mode first. It kinda implies that there's gonna be a separate Wii system menu installed on the Wii U.

    Ah, well I guess I don't have to look up the ID then? ;) Also, yeah...people have confirmed that already. The Wii mode is apart from the regular WiiU stuff....more like Gamecube compatibility than DSi compatibility on a 3DS. There is apparently a Wii Menu channel...but I have no idea what that means. :wtf: Maybe you go there for Wiiware/Wii VC stuff?

    I'm not sure what you mean, that's on your Wii already? If you mean the transfer tool, go to the Wii Channels section on the Wii Shop.

    Okay, I thought I had WiiMod already but I guess I didn't .. I did see that the folder on the SD card is HCSE but my family has taken over the TV while I was at the computer so if you need more than that I'll get it when I can.

    I already understood that there was a separate Wii mode in the Wii U but not that there was any kind of visible menu system running on it. gamecube mode on the wii doesn't have all the gamecube bios menus in it and I just assumed the Wii U wouldn't either.

    Anyway, to install the shop channel you can get the WAD from the latest version of ModMii. Yes it comes with the wii but it was recently updated and in order to update the channel through the normal way they want you to reinstal the whole system menu so that might be the worrysome part for some people with softmods

    Another interesting detail, semi-confirming that the transfer tool uses IOS62. I hadn't gotten around to installing the WAD I had downloaded and I thought I'd check and, sure enough, I now have 62 installed.

    Anyway, I'm transferring the channel back to NAND to use WiiMod on it.

    Thanks man. It uses IOS62, but since the ticket isn't available, I'm not sure how I can decrypt it with NUSD.

    Couldn't you just install it yourself and get it that way?

    I see some stuff about Pikmin in the decrypted contents. I bet there is an animation during the transfer, similar to the Mario one when downloading from the Shop Channel.

    So, I'm gonna see what files are given to me once I try the transfer. I'm backing up my nand first, don't want to lose all my stuff :D

    Damn, I can't without data from the Wii U. Someone needs to do the transfer and see if they can be modified for use on different Wii Us.

    Could anyone try if the following is possible?
    1. Backup NAND
    2. Transfer data from Wii to Wii U
    3. Restore NAND
    Will you get back everything on the old Wii? What happens to the eShop?
