shouldn't brick ur console lol. What is this? 1982?


Actually, old consoles were much sturdier when it comes to sudden/unexpected shutdowns because they never had to flash their bios' and such. Unless you're comparing the WiiU's fragility to... arcade cabinets or something? I dunno.

What happens if the connection to Nintendo's servers goes out, likely due to everyone updating? Does the Wii U brick then?

any system would brick if the power is off or turned off during updating, NOT during downloading.

Yes. you should have connected the system to a UPS.

This is why you don't program your updater to wipe the current firmware before the new firmware is downloaded.


And no one does... Whats your point?

This

Plus incase of firmware corruption, a secondary base firmware should be stored on the system which activates and restores the system

If my Internet goes out for like 10 minutes would that brick my system?
