    I did it by myself, I just modified the meta files with ftpiiu everywhere and made the CFG USB Loader's vWii forwarder as the default title on hbl2hbc.txt.
    If only I could have access to the WiiU forwarder's source code, I can make some other forwarders for my WiiU Menu, even could make some kind of tool to make something like "WiiU2vWiiBrew" *praises to @brienj

    The forwarder is actually done in a way that shouldn't be done for normal apps, but in the case of HBL2HBC, it works, because it goes to vWii mode. I will be working on a much better implementation eventually, in its current state though, it's not good to use for other apps.

    That wouldn't be made as a forwarder, just a new channel.

    I made the CFG USB loader meta files, Just replace the files in the folder: "storage_mlc/usr/title/00050000/13374843/meta/" with ftpiiu everywhere, restart the console and done.

    I made some GameCube/Wii oriented images for USB Loader GX, feel free to use them if you like.
    Just replace the tgas and meta.xml via ftpiiu here:
    storage_mlc/usr/title/00050000/13374843/meta/

    Put the hbl2hbc.txt file on the Root of your SD Card. This will launch USB Loader GX directly.

    Oh Boy! This combined with @oibaf's WiiU controller recompiles for his Wii Homebrews makes my day a good one. Thanks all!

    I don´t know if that´s a more basic question but of cource this need sign patches. But how exactly do they work? I launch a CFW to get them, install whatever and then turn off the console. The sign patches aren´t enabled now, what happens with unsigned games/channels now?

    the signature is checked at install and at launch.
    all the badsigned installed channels or titles are not affected (deleted) if you are not in a signature patched environment. they will only refuse to launch if you try without patching signature first.

    I see the forwarder for CFG UBS loader, is there a collection of other Wii U forwarders to vWii homebrew apps? I'd really love Nintendont, USB Loader GX or Wiiflow, and any vWii emulator that now has Wii U pro controller support. Also can we have forwarder apps for other Wii U homebrew apps? Any of the retroarch emulators would be good now that they support controllers besides just the gamepad.

    Hey man, thanks a lot for the tool. The effort the community makes to make our gaming lives easier and more pleasant is unbelievable.

    I need help with an issue trying to install your tool, but the problem goes beyond it i guess.

    Through my searches with google, a single one person seems to suffer from the same issue, and he asked it on reddit a couple days ago with no answers.

    In a nutshell, i've softmoded my vWii fine and run it perfectly through sysNand with HBC and UsbLoader GX running great. Thing is, when i try to run vWii from the redNand-Mocha i get this infamous message for some reason:

    "the system files are corrupted please refer to wii operations manual for help troubleshooting"

    I can't play VC Wii games either from the redNand-Mocha, don't know why. Same issues.
    I thought the vWii system operations were completely different from the Wii U, as you can brick one but not the other. So to my laymans knowledge this makes no sense whatsoever.

    Everything in my system modding is updated stuff, as i've used a custom package with the updated tools to softmod everything a couple days ago, following the Faq from here and reddit. This is the only issue i'm having and as much as i hate creating new topics on help, i couldnt adress this elsewhere.

    So, in a similar way, when i went and tried to install your tool, it redirects me to vWii okay on the redNand-Mocha, but after the Wii black and white logo i get the same message.
    Again, i can acess perfectly the moded vWii on the sysNand.

    If you, or anyone else can help me, it'd be awesome.
