    Hi Guys...

    I was wondering if someone could help on this one....

    I have both wii and WiiU, as probably some of you have... In my wii, I used to have my OpenWiiFlow working on with my USB HDD and plenty of games...

    On my old Wii, I downloaded as much DLC content as I could, running IOS56 patch. But when I transferred all the content from Wii to WiiU using their assistant, It turns out that this does not transfer DLC content. I see that there seems not to be an option to do it, according to Rockband website etc.

    My questions:
    1 - Has someone figured out how to do it?

    2 - Would it be safe to patch IOS56 with the relevant patch to enable the access to the shop and re-download the songs on Wiiu directly?

    Thank you so much for your support

    I do not know if it is possible, but I would highly recommend that you do not install a patched IOS unless someone VERY reputable tells you it's safe. Generally speaking, installing a Wii IOS on your Wii U will cause serious problems and/or brick your vWii. There would have to be one designed specifically for vWii for it to be safe.

    Thnx for your Reply TehCupcakes....

    I know patched IOS shouldn't be applied....However, as far as I remember, this is only a dope IOS thing, to restore trucha bug.... Not really a complete patch....

    IOS56



    Used by:
    • The Beatles: Rock Band
    • Super Mario Galaxy 2
    • Wii Shop Channel v20
    • Sonic 4: Episode 1 (WiiWare)
    • Club Penguin: Game Day
    Apparently shouldn't be very harmfull.... Can someone confirm its dangerousness??
    Thnx

    Patching vWii IOS56 with Normal Wii patches will mess up ios56 and any games using it will act funny and/or crash.
    Is it harmful : Only if you forget to backup IOS56 first. patching it will not brick vWii, and the backup can be reinstalled to replace it with the vWii one again.

    I do not see why you need to patch ios56, if you load the game with cios249 (it uses IOS56 as a base), it should allow you to do the same stuff patching 56 would do.

    The point is that The IOS56 needs to be patched restoring trucha bug in order to enable with the relevant WAD installed to have fully available the DLC content in the game.... That's the whole point...

    Thanx 4 replying this one out! ;)

    Nice 1, thanks Ratskull. I'll be testing this later. Do you have all the parephenalia (drums, hofner bass, mics, etc)? I'm hoping it'll all work as before.

    Yeah got them all just don't forget to select 249 in USB loader and you will need a hub if using the drums and mic together

    So is the DLC legit or backup/pirated copy? If it is later of course it doesn't transfer.
