    Learning C++ as a first language is best, learning about pointers, memory, etc plus object- oriented programming. Other languages take care of various stuff for you and it's easier to then learn what you don't need to do than to go from another language to C++ and not understand how to avoid memory leaks etc and write horrible code for a long time before you unlearn all the bad habits learned from other languages

    True but not good as a first language because you don't learn object-oriented programming which puts you on the back foot when learning your next language. And you can use C within a C++ program

    If it's not too much hassle, can I have a copy too?

    Okay, so simply put: EmuNAND'ing your Wii U is not a good idea so far? What can (and probably will) go wrong except the EmuNAND bricking, can it brick the real NAND too?
    Since the one useful thread for EmuNAND'ing your Wii U got closed down by mods for whatever reason I can't ask it there or look for an answer...

    AFAIK there is a chance to brick sysNAND if you don't unlink the nands by formatting sysnand. And the post was removed because the tools used (and the cfw) really aren't ready for public use yet.

    I mean I'm not a mod but a simple, big fat red text saying "Tools are unfinished, if you do this and it bricks your Wii U you're a dumb fucking idiot" should be enough, right?

    it's perfectly usable and it doesn't have much brick chances if you follow it correctly, but. Obviously no one will follow it correctly... RedNAND isn't really useful atm, you'll be fine if you follow it correctly though. Oh and the nand dumper is crazy buggy, it'll take a while to get it working.

    I will admit that getting used to C has wiped out basically any object-orientedness from my system. I have a hard time even reading C++ when it gets super objective, and if I went back to Java I'd probably write it very differently.
    I would like to defend C in that it's not a total dead end like you suggest; I've moved to learning Assembly (which has allowed me to get a far better understanding of what computers do on the low level and has helped me to debug my higher-level code far more effectively at all); which seems to have proven a very difficult task for the C++ people.
    You could also move on to other straight languages like Python or (at a stretch) JavaScript.

    So it does require to format real NAND? Damn...

    Yeah, it requires a sysNAND format.

    It's perfectly usable for those who can properly read and follow directions (except for the buggy af nand dumper).

    But aside having vNAND, what's the point in actually setting one up for now? Installing homebrew and getting real titles for "free" the safe way maybe, but what else?

    What you don't seem to realize though is that in my experience a lot of people can't seem to properly follow written instructions.

    Custom apps and easier modding, along with a way to mess around with files for devs.
