Complete guide to brazilian exploit method on 5.5.1 IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Gbatemp community or me IS NOT responsible if you BRICK your console or EVEN if you are banned. We still don't know if Nintendo will ban consoles playing unpaid games online. You will need a dumped tickets, and there will be no link here for that. The game you want to install has to be available on the eshop too. Introduction Purpose: This tutorial will teach you how to use brazilian exploit and how to update your games to go Online, FROM SCRATCH AND FOR NEWBIES. Another, more exhaustive and more complicated tutorial exists >> here << made by @BurningDesire, many thanks to him. His tutorial covers steps I), II) and III). The goal here is to have a total noob friendly tutorial that we can use from scratch and that will bring you to a full updated game on your wiiU that you can play Online. If you have errors, you may want to look that link! Requirements: 1) A Wii U (on 5.5.1) 2) A SD card (I recommend 32GB if you want to install heavy sized games) 3) A way to load homebrew (connected to the internet or self-hosted ways) 4) A SD card reader on your computer 5) A Windows computer (sorry for Linux/MacOs guys) 6) I highly recommend to have Tubehax setup before beginning this guide (check definitive guide to wiiU hacking for that in "GETTING TO (AND STAYING ON) AN EXPLOITABLE FIRMWARE">>"How do I block updates?">>"Set up TubeHax DNS on your Wii U") 7) A lot of patience Downloads: 1) Archive with content for your SDcard 2) Archive with content for you windows PC Where to start: If you never launched any homebrew launcher on your wii U go to step I). If you ever have launched homebrew launcher via the Illuminati thing skip step II). If you already have the homebrew launcher with wupinstaller and wupinstaller y mod ready, go to step III). I) Prepare your SD card with wupinstaller, wupinstaller y mod and other apps. Detailed steps 1) Format your SDcard: /!\ You will lose all data on that drive so BE CAREFUL with that. a) Find guiformat.exe in Brexploit_win_app/fat32format/ in the archive and unpack it wherever you want. b) Double click "guiformat.exe", and select the letter of your SDcard. c) The allocation unit size should be 32768, let it like that, then click "Start". 2) Put the "wiiu" folder inside the archive at the root of your sdcard. II) Prepare you wiiu to have a 100% working homebrew launcher. Detailed steps 1) Put your SDcard inside you wiiU 2) Go to "loadiine.ovh" with your WiiU internet browser and select "Homebrew Launcher Illuminati" if it hasn't been done before. 3) Wait for those fancy screens. 4) When you have the "Home Menu" coming back, click "Internet Browser". 5) Go back to "loadiine.ovh" and select "Homebrew Launcher 1.2 RC3" and click "Submit" to test if your homebrew launcher is working. NOTE: You should see "wupinstaller", "wupinstaller y mod" and other apps, if it's not the case go back to step I). III) Prepare your SDcard to install games on your wii U. Detailed steps 1) Unpack the Windows archive. 2) Get your ticket file. /!\ Make sure the ticket file is one of your WiiU's region OR YOU WILL BRICK. 3) Drag and drop your ticket file on uTikDownloadHelper.exe that you can find into the "Brexploit_win_app\uTikDownloadHelper\" folder of the unpacked archive. NOTE: It will ask you for a folder where it will put the full game, name that folder Game_whateveryouwant". 4) Put that folder into SD:\install\ NOTE: You can put multiple games like that by repeating steps from III.2) to III.4). Bonus) setting up your hard drive (optional). Detailed steps 1) Boot your WiiU. 2) Plug your HDD on WiiU's USB port(s) (may require a Y cable). /!\ It will ask you if you want to format your HDD, all your data will be lost, so be careful with that, there is no way to partition a WiiU HDD for now. 3) Click "Format". IV) Install your games on your wiiU or HDD. Detailed steps 1) Go to "loadiine.ovh" with your WiiU internet browser and select "Homebrew Launcher 1.2 RC3" then click "Submit". 2) Click "wupinstaller y mod" and then "Load". 3) Select which game you want to install with the DPAD then push X to install it on your hard drive or A to install it your console. 4) Wait and be patient, do not turn off your console, go grab a drink. 5) Your game is installed, you still need to update it to go online. V) Prepare your SDcard to update your games. Detailed steps NOTE: I don't know if you can use "wupinstaller y mod" to do that, so I still use the old method where you can only put one update at the same time on your SDcard. 1) Go into the "Brexploit_win_app/NEW-NUSGrabberGUI/" folder. 2) Start NEW-NUSGrabberGUI by double clicking "NEW-NUSGrabberGUI.exe". 3) Go to "Settings" at the bottom left and choose your console's region. /!\ Remember, if you install something of another region YOU WILL BRICK. 4) Click "Download". NOTE: You should have a new folder named with a Hexadecimal numbers. 5) Empty your SD:\install folder 6) Put what you have INSIDE the hex folder into your SD:\install folder which has to be empty first. VI) Update your game. Detailed steps 1) Put back your SD card in your WiiU. 2) Go to "loadiine.ovh" with your WiiU internet browser and select "Homebrew Launcher 1.2 RC3" then click "Submit". 3) Click "wupinstaller" and then "Load". 4) Push X to install it on your hard drive or A to install it your console. 5) Wait and be patient, do not turn off your console, go grab a drink. 6) Your game is updated. 7) Enjoy. NOTE: to update all your games, repeat step V and VI.
