    vWii Decaffeinator
    vWii Decaffeinator allows you to restore your vWii without the need of a NAND Backup
    Please backup your SLCCMPT and OTP before using this tool!

    Source:

    How does it work
    This uses the fact that the Wii U will redownload many missing files when performing a System Update.
    So this homebrew will remove files that can be redownloaded and forces a System Update.
    This even works while being on the latest Firmware Version!

    How to use
    Choose an option from the menu and confirm with START.
    After a mode has finished press any button to launch System Settings where you can perform an update.
    The update folder will be recreated if you deleted it! Make sure to delete it again if you want to block updates

    Light mode
    This will redownload every essential System Title including all IOS

    Aggressive Mode
    This will remove EVERYTHING!
    Save Data, Installed Channels, ...

    Force Update
    This will force an update which may redownload any missing files

    Regenerate setting.txt
    This will regenerate the setting.txt which is the only file that can't be recovered by any of the other modes.
    The file will be regenerated from the consoles region and serial which can be read from the Wii U mode.

    Advanced options
    This lets you manually configure what should be redownloaded

    Troubleshooting
    • Error 105-3102 when trying to update
      Restart your console and go back into System Settings
      Now do the update again
    • Error 160-0101 on startup
      Remove any inserted disc and remove any connected harddrives

    The Light and Agressive mode would restore every IOS even modified ones.
    In the Advanced Options you can specify what specific IOS should be restored

    Probably not.
    It only works for system titles and I haven't even tried this method on the SLC or MLC.

    ok thanks for helping bro :)
    but I think it's just the ticket I have to put in to because the mlc already got the actual app so that the nintendo tvii can show

    After I used this tool, I installed the homebrew channel and cIOS's for USB Loader GX. After I install the cIOS, the homebrew channel won't boot and if I try to play a game from a disc it goes straight back to the vWii system menu
