    I get this error immediatly when I try to install the game; 'LEGO_ UNDERCOVER [0005000010101800] Confirm complete WUP files are in the folder.' (The 8 in the numbercode could be a B either. ) I get this error with all lego games, and all just dance games. But with other games, it works perfectly like Mario games, Donkey Kong games.

    Guys, does anyone know if I can play ANY Wii game on my Wii U by downloading an ISO and injecting it? I've tried a couple (Wii Sports and Wii Party) that went to black screen. Is that because I have PAL and they were NTSC region downloads, or because they weren't originally Wii VC games? Is it only Wii games released on VC for Wii U that I can play injected versions? Sorry if that doesn't make sense, but it doesn't to me either!

    Hi Cyan, thanks for your help pre-Xmas. I think I'm pretty much set up now and starting to get my head around a lot of this. The one thing that I'm having trouble with and am still a bit confused about is the Wii U VC stuff. I was downloading some Wii ISO's and using WiiVC Injector as you said but a couple of the games (Wii Sport and Wii Party) went to black screen and froze when I tried them. I tried Punch Out and Mario Striker Charged and they both worked fine. Do you know why the other games wouldn't work? Does it depend on region (I'm PAL)? Or can I only play games that were released on Wii U VC, via that method? I was hoping I would literally be able to download any Wii ISO possible and play it via just one USB with all my other Wii U games, without getting into the vWii stuff? Or did I misunderstand that part?

    I have 3 32GB SD. Gonna install couple of games. Can i take out my SD on the homebrew launcher menu, put the other SD and install the games via WUP? What i dont want is having to enter homebrew every time i have to change SD cards.

    Yes. It's checked for updates almost every day. Look at the text red right at the beginning of the OP

    I modded my Wii U some time ago with cold boot haxchi. I didn't update to the latest firmware, but would like to do so now, as I consider it somewhat incomplete and I also don't think that Nintendo will release another update for the console.

    So could I just uninstall CBHC, update and reinstall? Will unsinstalling it also remove the 99.99 fw spoof?

    You don't need to uninstall CBHC first. Just update and it will be fine

    sorry, I don't know why.
    I don't use wiiu vc myself. you could ask in the wiiuvc script injector thread, or look at the wiiu vc compatibility list on the wiki.

    Just dance works now, but I get a new error with the lego games: Veryfying WUP files are correct & complete. DLC/E-shop require Sig Patch.
    I aslso get this error now often when trying to install something: Exception Type in DSI occured! And a lot of numbers.

    Use GUI Format, it's a program to format storage devices.

    Format your SD Card to FAT32, with either 32k or 64k cluster size.

    A small update/test:

    Primary DNS = 168.235.92.108 and Secondary DSN = 81.4.127.20 still work and worked on JP consoles. Trying to upgrade from 5.5.0 to the newest firmware on my JP Wii U gives an error(was actively looking for a way to upgrade to 5.5.1 but looks like if you're on 5.5.0, the only way is to upgrade to 5.5.2...unless you buy another game disc). Also, I stumbled into this page: http://sumamate.com/diary/2496/

    It's a Japanese tutorial and inside, he used "107.211.140.065" (TubeHax DNS) for both the primary and secondary DNS. I tested it myself and what I found out is that this one blocks all communications. You won't even pass the connection test.

    Might be useful?

    And, Kafluke I kinda feel sorry for you, to see people coming to ask for help but with that kind of shitty attitude. There is so much stuff to read about on homebrew and you cannot possibly type out all the information for every beginner, and his questions were really basic. Just gotta try and find tutorials and videos first.

    Ahhh yes, forgot about that thread. User just didn't want to listen. What do you mean "add the deals"?
