What would happen if the Return to Wii U Menu channel from vWii was ran on an actual Wii?

    I’m morbidly curious to see what would happen. Obviously I know it wouldn’t magically turn the Wii into a Wii U as it’s a totally different console - but what would it do? Assuming it could even be copied from the Wii U’s memory (and packaged into a WAD file or directly exported into a Wii’s NAND) Would it brick or freeze the system, reboot it or maybe pop up some sort of error window due to it being made with a different firmware than what a real, up-to-date Wii would be running on?

    Nothing, that's why there's exclusive vWii channels

    Probably just power it off or reboot it. IIRC "powering off" with the power button in vWii mode reboots into Wii U mode instead.

    I think it will cause a brick. If remembering correctly the Wii and vWii IOS is not interchangeable.

    in all seriousness the channel just resets the console so either it would lock on a black screen or reboot as normal

    I've tried it before. It just reboots the system.
