    Unlike the previous tutorial I wrote on how to get Wii U USB Helper running on Mac, this guide will show you how to get the android version on your Mac though Bluestacks. Significantly more stable.

    1. Download the Wii U USB Helper Go .APK (android package).
    Wii U USB Helper Go Download
    2. Inside the 'Documents' folder (Must be in documents due to Bluestacks) create a new folder called 'Wii U USB Helper' or something of your choosing.
    3. Put the .apk file you downloaded into this new folder your created.
    How it should look so far.
    4. Download and install Bluestacks (an android emulator for Mac/PC)
    Bluestacks Download
    5. Once installed it will look like this (***NOTE*** It may say that it cannot connect to the internet, just give it a minute or so):
    Bluestacks Freshly installed
    6. Click on search in the top left and type in 'File explorer' and hit search.

    7. This will lead you to the 'One time setup'. Click continue.

    8. You will be prompted to log into or create a google account at this point. Proceed as instructed on screen.

    9. Once you have logged in, you will see the 'one time setup' again. Click 'Continue'.

    10. You will be prompted to login to your account again. Proceed as instructed.

    11. After logging in, it should bring you back here to the 'one time setup' for the last time. Click 'Let's Go'
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    12. This should bring you to the Google Play Store. If it isn't already in the search bar, search for 'file explorer' and select 'File manager'. You can use any on there, but for the purposes of this tutorial this is the one I chose. Install and open the app.

    13. Click on 'Internal Storage'
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    14. Navigate to >root>sdcard>windows>documents>Wii U USB Helper (Or whatever you decided to name your folder) and click on hikari06.usbhelper.usbhelper_go.apk and install then open.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    15. After opening, you will see a window asking where to store games to. Choose 'Custom location' and navigate to sdcard>windows>documents and click 'select' to the left of 'Wii U USB Helper'
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    16. It will now ask you for a title key source. You should not have a hard time finding this on google.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    17. You are now ready to download and enjoy. Downloads will be found as shown in the image. Copy the folders you need to the 'install' folder of your SD card and use WUP Installer GX 2 as per usual.

    Thanks for the tutorial! Do you know if there is any way to resume downloads via bluestacks or Wiiu Helper - I'm getting only partial downloads each time and can't find anywhere to resume anything I have started.

    When you open the app in blue stacks it should show as a yellow/orange to show a partial download. Simply go to that game, scroll down and hit the download again. It will resume where it left off.
