    nope, firstly there is device specific encryption afaik, the same as the 3DS, meaning without a nand backup from your specific console you cannot perform a hardware downgrade,

    also that guide only deals with emmc dumping, unlike the 3DS the wiiu stores its FW on a separate NAND chip, which is harder to wire up and dump/restore, not only that i haven't seen a single person actually confirm they have had a downgrade work, but seen a few people bricked attempting the mod

    These nand backups would only be useful for if you've bricked the same Wii U you dumped the nand from. (hope that made sense.)

    If your asking if this will work on all update versions. If it's anything like the 3ds nand dumping. It won't matter what firmware you're on since it's a hard mod. And can not be patched since it's the nand test point locations.
