    Well i backed up my nand, transfered my wii data to the wii u. restored my nand, the only thing i can see is that you cant go back to the wii shop channel on the wii and redownload any purchased games to the wii. my wii didnt have any of my purchases still installed when i did the transfer, so i had to install in the wii menu thru the shop channel on wii u. but once you do that you cant re download them onto your original wii again. the process did go without a flaw as far as the transfer goes.
    didnt check to see if the saved games and stuff were back on the wii or not after the restore of the nand. i'll update tommorrow and give you the results.

    Thx for the info. So the wii channels (ex. VC OR WIIWARE) didn't come back when you restored your NAND?

    i didnt have them installed to the main wii memory, so no they werent there to backup... i had to re download them from the shop channel on the wii u (wii menu) and redownload them. also you cant go back to your old wii and redownload the games after the transfer.

    Btw how've you tried any online games on the wii u? Are there still those loong friend codes, or do we finally get gamer tags?

    Did you delete any of the mods before transfering to wii u? did you have to delete channels like HBC or say Neo Gamma before you transferred? Or did you just transfer your stuff w/out doing any of these things?

    nope, jsut backed up my nand, run the transfer program, and since i didnt have any of my purchased games on the wii, it just transfered my saves, shop account info and wii points that i had.. that was it. then i went into the shop channel on wii u under the wii menu and redoanloaded my purchased games again.

    Good to hear it is safe to transfer.

    So I'm taking it that if your Wii is modded, it is safe to run the update and transfer your save games and files? Afterwards the wii will still work and play all games from the hard drive?

    I need to know cause I just got a Wii U (32gb) and i don't want to wreck it. So someone who's Wii was modded and did the data transfer please tell me:

    Does it transfer your Homebrew Channels too? I don't want my Wii Homebrew going onto my WiiU cause I don't really want to hack the vWii (maybe I'll do WiiU mode when it's doable but not the vWii). So please do all the Homebrew app channels transfer too? Also does the transfer really delete the items from the original Wii after?

    Edit: I do see someone above says he transfer his data and his Shop Channel games can no longer be played on the old Wii but he did not mention if his HB apps were transferred.
