    This is tutorial to convert your Loadiine Game Backup to Brazillian Method Format so you can install it to your USB HDD

    Requirements:
    -Loadiine Game Backup, make sure its working in Loadiine (not a bad dump/bad file editing)
    -JNUSTool (with injected wii u key in 'config' file)
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/jnustool-nusgrabber-and-cdecrypt-combined.413179/
    -NUSPacker (with injected wii u key in 'encryptKeyWith' file)
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/nuspacker-pack-files-into-installable-packages.447689/
    -internet access
    -access to that title key site

    Steps

    #Replacing 'code' & 'meta' folders
    -Open your Loadiine game folder and move 'code' & 'meta' folders to somewhere for backup or you can just delete it, it's up to you
    -Open that title key site and find the game that you want to convert
    -Copy Title ID of that game and make a new folder inside 'JNUSTool' folder named 'tmp_[titleID]'
    *example: tmp_00050000101c4cXX
    -Also download ticket file (title.tik) from that title key site and put it in the folder you just created
    -in the JNUSTool folder, press Shift+Right Click then select 'Open command window here', it will open command prompt
    -then enter this command:
    Code:
    java -jar JNUSTool.jar [titleID]
    example:
    Code:
    java -jar JNUSTool.jar 00050000101c4cXX
    -after you press Enter a proccess will run and a new window will appear, check the 'code' and 'meta' by clicking in the checkbox, don't check 'content' unless you want to download the whole games
    -click Download
    -after download is finished there will be a new folder named with the game you want to convert, copy 'code' & 'meta' inside this folder to your Loadiine game backup folder
    notes: make sure that your game backup root folder only consist 3 folder: code, content, & meta folder. If there is another folder such as updates/save/etc, you should delete/move it from there

    #Converting (Encrypting) to USB Installable Format
    -Open NUSPacker folder, press Shift+Right Click then select 'Open command window here', it will open command prompt
    -then enter this command:
    Code:
    java -jar NUSPacker.jar -in "inputDir" -out "outputDir"
    replace 'inputDir' with the location of your game backup and 'outputDir' with the folder name you want
    *example:
    Code:
    java -jar NUSPacker.jar -in "D:\Nintendo Wii U\wiiu\games\Xenoblade Chronicles X EUR Undub" -out "Xenoblade"
    -after you press Enter a proccess will run, this will take a while depending on how big the size of the game you want to convert
    -after the proccess is completed you will find a new folder in the NUSPacker folder
    -copy the folder to your Wii U microsd and install using wupinstaller
    -DONE!

    The problem of many Loadiine game backup is because the game is dumped using DDD and the code and meta folders is not compatible with the Brazilian method
    I already try this to some games that need editing in renaming some files (because I have japan console) and undub games so that it can installed to USB
    so far I haven't got any error
    try this and comment if there is an error in my tutorial
    and sorry if there is grammar/spelling error in my English (not my first language :P)

    Nice tutorial. Works well! Thanks.

    Just one little thing: "java -jar JNUSTool.jar [title key]" should be "java -jar JNUSTool.jar [title ID]".

    Oh, also, if you have any DLC folders or the "save" folder, you should delete them before trying to use NUSPacker. I also had more success importing and exporting on the same drive rather than across two drives.

    Finally, NUSPacker hates hidden files (in particular, the .DS_Store files on Mac - not sure about things like thumbs.db on Windows).

    I wonder if this method will work to repack Tokyo Mirage Session with the Patch (Restoration) to make it installable throught usb!

    Wait.. Do we need rednand or sysnand with Sig patches ?

    thank you so much for this
    wish there was video
    or a one click .exe program to ease the process

    1. can we use code and meta folders from update files? considering we will manually update loadiine games

    2. what title id to use for loadiine vc injected content? can we make them up?
    for example I got edited super Mario bros rom in loadiine

    3. we need original title keys or edited titlte keys for Brazilian method?

    4. do non region loadiine games work with nuspacker and Brazilian method?

    I don't have the knowledge & skill to make the .exe maybe someone who can will help
    1. I don't think so, because some code folders from the update have different content with the main game folder
    2. sorry I don't know, never tried to use VC on loadiine & installed channel
    3. the ticket that you get by doing my method is fine, I never get to replace it with the edited one, all works fine
    4. what do you mean by 'non region'? I think all games have specific region code on their game ID/title ID
    I use this on Mocha CFW sysnand & rednand
