    Hello Guys.

    So today I bought my WiiU and I'm planning to transfer my Wii data to the vWii of the WiiU. However, I have Homebrew launcher & USB Loader GX installed there.

    Is there any problem to do the Transference? Also, the USB Loader GX and the HB Launcher will still be there after it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok so only stuff you have officially bought from the eshop will be transferred along with your game saves then the wii will be reset with nothing on it. What to do first is a nand backup of the wii then do the transfer to the wiiu then on the wii reinstall the nand backup and the wii will run exactly as it did before the transfer.

    I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that HBC and Loader will not work, since vWii and Wii are not a 1:1 copies. Best thing to do is just do the transfer, then hack vWii using @CJB100's excellent guide, and use the SD card you used for Wii on vWii.

    So, I've done everything including the NAND Backup. However, I can't make the NAND Restore. Even though I can't install BootMii at Boot2, I should be able to use it from the HB Launcher to make the Nand Restore, right?

    You are doing the nand restore on the original Wii, correct?

    Have you already backed up the nand and then transferred the Wii data?

    If this is the case, you should be able to hack the original Wii with whatever method you choose (Wilbrand and LetterBomb are probably the best choices) and then reinstall BootMii and HBC. Once that is done you should be able to do a nand restore via BootMii.

    I've alredy done the transference. However, the Homebrew Channel and the USB Loader GX stayed there, so, I'm accessing the HB Launcher, press HOME to select BootMii, and at the BootMii, when I select Nand Restore it tell me something about Konami and to press Z ( but BootMii don't use any wiimote, so I don't know what Z is)

    Z is referring to a GameCube controller. I think there's some combination of buttons on the front of the system you can press instead, give me a sec and let me see if I can find them.

    You need to enter the Konami code using a gamecube controller. Code is

    Up

    Down

    I looked and yes, this is one of the few functions that absolutely requires a GameCube controller. Unfortunately reset and eject buttons cannot be used here. :/

    So, is there any other way to restore a Nand Backup on the Wii?

    The only thing I care, since The USB Loader and the HB are still there, are the saves. If I, on the vWii, put them on the SD Card, and after, put the SD Card on the Original Wii and transfer them again to the console, will they still work with USB Loader?

    As Marko put (not so elegantly >.>), there is nothing to do now unfortunately. I didn't see the post initially, and even if I had I wouldn't have remembered this bit of info. We should have asked before you transferred, sorry. But you should be able to easily get things back to working order if you still have your SD set up.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    If you are talking about Wii save games, then yes, they should (assuming the vWii let's you copy them over). You will probably need to open up the game at least once before you will be able to copy the save from the SD Card over to your original Wii.
