    im on 5.3.2 and using a 1gb card.

    thx

    Its most likely the speed of your card

    Get a faster card

    The wii u shouldnt overheat really, should be fine

    Technically, its reading the NAND, not writing, so unplugging it should be fine. But Im not positive exactly how the dumper works. Its recommended that you DO NOT unplug during the dumping process.

    You dont need to backup vIOS anymore. Theres a NUS that can download vIOS now

    Format the SD with a bigger cluster size.

    I have a fast card...it just takes a LONG time (although mine took around 2 hours). Don't worry about the Wii U overheating. Mine has been on overnight on occasions and is always cool a a cucumber....then again I have it in a very open and ventilated location :)

    Yea if you're using the 2GB SD you used to hack your system, it's FAT and Class 4, it's going to take a long time.
    Swap it out with a SDHC and it should take at most 20-40min unless your SD is having issues.

    yeah, you can stop it if you want, its reading, so there is no problem, i stopped mine, but again, just to be sure, dump you nand keys using This and also dump your full IOS Set using This This

    Leave it to do its thing. Don't be impatient. Dump your nand, your keys, and each individual system ios like it says in the guide. Keep it in a safe place. Also, installing wads, like VC wads and whatnot, risk bricking your vWii. Despite what others say, there is a good risk, so without these back ups, you'll be dead in the water. Run homebrew apps and USB loaders in vWii. Don't install VC wads. For that, get a Wii, or use some other avenue to play the game.

    The nand dump depends on your card speed mostly. My first dump i did with a 1gb non hc and took +- 30min. (i do backups now and then of my nand after update on wii u or if i change something). My last backup i did with a SDHC 8GB and took +- 3hrs. I did some speed test on my desktop on the cards and the 1gb was way faster.
    Also NUS can get "good" vWii ioses now but it's always better to have your own clean ios wad from your console.
    I advise to not skip any step on the backup part, you never know when you'll need it.
