    So I heard we can transfer our Wii Virtual Console games to the WiiU.

    Here's the questions:

    Who will be the first to try transferring the VC games installed "illegally from HBC" to a legit WiiU console?

    Will this work? :blink:

    i doubt it, because if it is anything like the DS-3DS transfer it will need to go online and verify your licenses

    Correct, Nintendo recently warned in this video to keep your Wii, because both systems have to be connected to the internet for the transfer.

    Now I need to figure out how the heck to update my hacked Wii to get into the E-Shop so I can get my Paper Mario and Ocarina of Time VC Downloads back

    I'm gonna attempt it, but I fully expect it to not transfer my HBC game channels.
    It makes me sadly, but hopefully people hack the Wii channel. I wanna have my OoT 1.0 rom :cry:

    I have Pal save files and Ntsc save files on my NTSC Wii.
    I am getting a NTSC WiiU and I would guess that all my Wad installed channels wont be transferred and my pal save files which is 100% okay for me.
    But I just am a little scared that I might lose my warranty if I do the transfer.
    But I just want my Zelda skyward sword save file on my Wii U.




    People can you tell me if it is safe and if I will lose warranty?

    its probably safe to transfer stuff, even with a modded Wii

    The Wii will analise all that you have and then list what it can transfer to the SD card and what can't before the process really begins (some can be transfered, some need to be re-downloaded from the Wii U eShop, and other can't be transfered at all). There is no system modification involved.
    If its possible to transfer the "homebrew originated" things, only some tests will say ...but it's probably safe to try.

    EDIT:

    Here are some things from the new Nintendo FAQ about the transfering process:

    My Wii is on 4.2 and has Priiloader and bootmii set as boot2 which runs all my eShop purchased VC titles and disc games from an ext HDD via usb loader gx. I don't HAVE to transfer these (VC titles only) and can still use the Wii along with my Wii U but would like to do it if it's possible.

    What I obviously don't want is a fully formatted Wii running the latest firmware and having to set it all up again from scratch. Any recommendations?

    My Wii has an undeletable channel
    Some old pirated copy of Majora's Mask. If I ever attempt to delete it, the console freezes, and on rebooting, cannot access the data management screen. Doesn't matter what I use. Channel management, WAD manager, Any Tile Deleter, what have you. All of them freeze and come back with a semi-brick

    I stuck the channel in the corner. I hope the transfer app doesn't try to delete it. I don't think it'll be able to.

    Will it work fine even if you're not on the latest firmware?
