The Wii U Transfer Tool is a channel that provides ability to copy your Wii content (including save data, purchased content from Wii Shop and all WiiWare and Virtual Console downloaded titles) to a Wii U system through the use of a SD card and Wii System Transfer.

Emulation Information

Network Certificates Required

Wii U Transfer Tool has functionalities that requires proper network certificates extracted from an IOS to work. Refer to the network guide for more information.


Verifying SD Card

After some checks, this channel will ask you to insert the SD Card which was prepared on the destination Wii U console, and then it'll throw an error 389005. It's currently unknown if a RAW dump of a prepared Wii U SD Card would allow further progress with the transfer.


This channel boots and loads fine, however, all you'll get is an error 204701. Fixed in 5.0-2874.


Crashes nearly instantly after starting with a generic "An error has occurred" message. Fixed in 5.0-11432.


No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this channel.
