    Behind you
    AFAIK There's no way to restore a NAND backup on vWii.

    I can be done with a progskeet, infectus, a teensy, or a multitude of other flash memory writers.

    To set the record straight: no one has publicly said they have written their vWii NAND back (yet) with hardware or software.
    While it MAY be possible, too many issues are currently unknown.

    Ok, well then let me say it. I have. I did it the same exact way that I do it with the wii. It was simple.

    Did you cross mix a vWii NAND from 1 firmware version with different firmware version WiiU NAND or EMMC or DRH firmware?

    No, and I can't anymore bc I don't have a wii u anymore. I only had it for like a week when the wii u was first released. But hell, if people want to contribute something to me so I can work my magic and document everything then I would be very happy to, but I just don't have the cash flow for me to purchase one especially with a baby coming within the next week or so.
