    And for clarity, are these correct files the "Homebrew Launcher", "TCP Gecko Installer", and "JGecko" from the top post? If so, I already did that and I'm still running into the same problem.

    Just tried it again, same error message as before.

    You need to wait till the Titles.xml is downloaded (which requires Internet access).

    This only works when it finished the original download which usually takes 1 - 2 seconds so I don't know what people are doing. Fix your Internet. I have just been working on this problem and there is nothing majorly wrong like that. It works for me and at least most others.

    Trying to get this to work on my hacked 5.5.2 Wii U. I have Haxchi installed with the coldboot and can access HB via an installed channel launcher. Do I still have to go through wj44?

    When I run the tcpgecko installer, do I press A or X?

    I boot up the game, connect using jgecko u and then the game freezes.

    Grabbed all the relevant files using the Updater.

    Okay, so I've decided to try it again today, got a Titles.xml, but now I've run into a new problem: the Wii U crashes after connecting to JGecko. Updating said .xml doesn't do any good since it'll just hang there even though the process should take seconds. Something's wrong with my internet, but I have no idea what that is. I've even tried factory-resetting my broadband.

    Attached. Copy this unzipped Titles.xml into the same directory as JGecko U.jar and it will be loaded directly without Internet so it can't fail.

    This seems to be a problem with the latest JGecko version. As soon as you connect the console freezes. And to make it even more worse it also screws up the the code file of the current connected game. Good thing I had a backup of an old JGecko version

    So sorry, it's fixed now. :(

    You should still have the archive.zip with code list backups so you should have lost nothing.

    Hi I'm using 5.5.2 CBHC and I'm trying to RAM poke in JGeckoU on COD BO2; I'm running the homebrew launcher with the latest TCPGecko and JGecko U but upon connecting it freezes the game; It shows a socket error when I try to switch to the other tabs and I can see that it identified the game but other than that the freezing still happens.

    @BullyWiiPlaza I just wanted to say great work! I've been using JGecko U for a while now and it's freaking awesome. I do have a question though. I'm using the latest version of JGecko U and TCP Gecko and everything is working great for me as far as codes go, I can connect to my Wii U just fine, send codes, do searches, etc., but when I try to update game titles it never actually finishes. The button displays "updating..." but stays grayed out. I've tried several times and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes each time, but it just stays like that. I have a few older versions of JGecko U and they all update game titles just fine, so I figured I'd run it past you and get your thoughts on the matter.

    Thank you for all the continued support on this project, it's greatly appreciated!
