    It's a pretty long story, but here's the gist: Homebrew can't be transferred like any other apps (same goes for pirated apps). The Software goes through some checks, then is deleted form the host system. After being deleted, a special download ticket is sent to the client system, so that the software can be downloaded onto that system.

    So if we do this transfer all our homebrew will be deleted on our wii console?

    i still fail to realize how anything in this topic lead to talk of homebrew, the email was asking about transferring wii wifi ID data to wii u, like we can do from DS-DSi-3DS.
    then i just mentioned wii mode lol.
    as in this
