    We haven't seen evidence that it's not, and many people are doing it. On the other hand, if we can tell which tickets are fake, so could the system (if it were to look.) Also, eShop ends up asking you how much you're enjoying games that your ID didn't purchase, but those might very well be on your machine from another NNID. Maybe it's safe. Maybe it isn't.

    Right, Ive bought my daughter a brand new WII U for christmas, I assume its on the latest FW, if it is, can it be hacked? I wont know until she opens it on Christmas morning swtiches it on. Which is the best hack? Id be looking to play back ups off an external hdd if possible. I have already purchased a 64GB sd card. Think my heads a little mashed atm as Ive watched a few youtube vids and have read loadfs of stuff on forums etc. I need pointing in the right direction. I tend to rent games so backing them up to a format I can use would be an advantage. Thanks in advance guys

    If you want to learn about all the wii u hacks available today, you can go here : https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-definitive-guide-to-wii-u-hacking.396828/
    If you want to learn about the vWii (wii part of the wii u) hacks then go here : https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-definitive-vwii-hacking-guide.425852/

    If you just want to install game back ups in USB or internal storage for your daughter to access easily like any app or game without initializing any hack, then you can use what they call "the brazilian method", there is a full explanation here : https://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-u-usb-loading-install-wiiu-games-to-usb-or-internal-memory.445514/
    Again if you only want to install the game back ups without any region unlocking or unbought DLC, you can skip any CFW related hacks. It's not necessary for just that.

    As I said I rent games rather than buy them so ripping the games would be great. The ganes I rent are all EU/PAL AFAIK. Bit clueless here so I'm gonna have a good read. I've modded a Wii a fee years ago and that went ok

    Well for children I'd just use the brazilian hack I told you about, where I install all the games they like to play, and they will all be in the system home menu. No need to launch any hack to see them. That's what I did for my niece and nephew, both of them only want to play some games that I installed, they aren't interested in homebrew, or cheats. But if you're interested in other stuff take a look at the definitive guide to wii u hacking There is a section about game hacks that are easy to use.

    On my part, I like tinkering with consoles and enjoy the hacking experience but I'm happy to rent games and play them off a USB.

    haxchi is a way of exploiting the wii U and launch hacks without going to the browser. Basically an offline, persistent, simple way to access other homebrew programs anytime from system menu.

    I haven't been following this scene for quite some while.

    Is it possible to install non legitimate dlc for disc games with mocha?

    Sorry for the noob question guys, but I already got my Wii U running games from the SD card via loadiine. I'm on 5.5.1 and I want to load games from a USB (which also holds Wii/GC games) where do I start on the guide?

    Thank you!!

    Not yet possible. The only way to load games from a USB on a Wii U is to format your drive using the Wii U (your Wii and GameCube data will be gone) and then use the eShop or WUPInstaller to install the games on your console's USB drive.
