    This is not The Definitive Guide! This is a supplement that attempts to explain the latest Wii U developments in an easy to understand set of instructions.

    Last updated 5/24/17


    This guide will give you all the current hacking options and give you a choice on what works best for your situations. Unlike other guides I will not simply give you a set of instructions and tell you to follow it blindly. Read up on everything so you can make an informed decision on what will work best for you.

    This is unreadable for dark theme users like myself.

    I've heard this in the other forum. How can I fix this? Change what colors to what other colors? I don't use the dark theme.

    As I said in the other thread. My computer glitched. It posted twice and I asked the mods to remove the other.

    Lol. It's stickied in the hacking forums. I was working on a different thread and accidentally posted it here to. Then my computer freaked out and posted it twice. So we can either get rid of both threads here or leave one anyway cause it's the tuts section. Either way is fine by me.

    Don't use Black text color because it blends on some PC monitors [And is hard to read.]

    Get on one of the CFWs (CBHC, HaxChi by itself, or mocha) then use Wii U USB Helper to download the DLC. Then use WUP Installer to install it to sysnand.

    One question, I notice that some of those games I have downloaded with Wii U USB Helper. Do I still need to download from the EShop or the one already installed works too?

    Thanks!

    NOOOOOO! That's why it says you MUST download from eshop. The game has to be legit. If you use a non legit DS game downloaded from Wii U USB Helper HaxChi won't work (unless you have already booted into CFW)

    You don't "put WUP Installer" on it. You just use it to install games to USB or sysnand. No, you don't need to hack your wii u to use WUP Installer. If you want to actually install WUP installer to use from the main menu rather than going through your browser then yes, you will need CFW
