    It can't be done using this method. Downgrading the browser using another method will make the browser useless unless you're already running Haxchi or CBHC CFW, which will make the browser unusable as a way to load the Homebrew Launcher or Mocha CFW if you don't already have Haxchi/CBHC.

    In short, don't downgrade the browser. It doesn't work.

    It sure looks that way.

    I remember 5.3.2 was able to lauch Loadiine GX2 , was it through an web expoit ? I'm thinking about launching a game with 5.5.1 update from Loadiine and , it does the update ? If it does not with Loadiine format , maybe it works with "brazilian " format ? Does the brazilian format work on 5.3.2 ?
    I'm thinking all the exploits discovered in 5.5.1 are functional in lower versions too . Also , it there a way to "protect " the browser from being updated ?

    Hi guys, I went through this guide (and after failing to install via ostitleloader i managed to manually download them and use the GX wup installer. only problem was that i missed out the last file 000500101000400A as I assumed it would install and then let me install that before rebooting. System rebooted and shows 5.5.2 (with 5.5.1 browser) but for the life of me I cant get any HBL or HBC to come on it keeps going to black screen with spinning blue circle.
    is there a method to install this OSv10 file. ive exhausted most methods..... or can I just upgrade to full 5.5.2 and maybe it will exploit easier...

    I am having this same error where it says my java size is illegal when I use the common key I found online and put it into the common.key file. If someone could PM me what I am doing wrong that would be a lot of help. I'm looking to go from 5.3.2U up to this. Thanks.

    why follow old guides?
    just update your console, then use the 5.5.2 exploit (80% chance of success is not so bad, and not impossible).

    if you are stuck with half an update, let the console update to fix the missing titles.



    the common.key is a binary file, not a text file.
    copy/pasting the key inside a file as text will not work.
    you don't need the key number, you need the key file. if you have the key value, use a hex editor to paste it into a binary file.

    or, just update your console to 5.5.2 and hack it with following the noob guide.

    I'm going to have to quote both of you here.

    I just had a reason to use the unsafe version of wupinstaller for the first time since 5.5.2 dropped, and I am getting this same error installing minecraft dlc.

    This error code appears with both wupinstaller and wupinstaller GX (unsafe version as well). The description says: verify WUP files are correct and complete. DLC/E-Shop requires sigpatch.

    I tried it with both mocha and haxchi. This leads me to believe it's a problem with the files. I downloaded the files several times using Wii U USB helper, and the result is always the same. I also noticed it produces one .app file without an .h3 file

    I hope someone can shed a light on this, if not, can someone test the minecraft dlc from Wii U USB helper and let me know if it works?

    (Quite a bit off topic...)

    I tried downloading the European version DLC with uTikDownloadHelper, indeed the 0000002.app doesn't have a matching .h3

    According to https://github.com/FIX94/wud2app/blob/b4664a86bd068db65314c751b48c4cf63418a260/main.c#L419 however not all .apps require .h3 checksums, most likely that's the DLC index

    Here's the file list, haven't tried installing though:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You removed any fancy characters from the folder name, right? :)

    Thanks for the reply and info!

    Yep, 124 files and 02.app is the one without .h3 file. I also had an old version of the dlc on my pc that had 53.app, 54.app, and 55.app (no respective .h3 files) that I dont see in the latest download version. I guess they were removed for whatever reason.

    And yeah, no weird naming or anything. It is called exactly this "Minecraft Wii U Edition [0005000C101D9D00]"

    I dont suppose you can try installing it? as that's where my issue is (then again, yours in europe so it's not exactly identical)

    Some additional info: I tried it with wupinstaller y mod 1.3 release (not the unsafe version) and it still didnt work. Wupinstaller GX funnily enough, after reporting the error, goes to a black screen instead of going back to title installation screen. I guess @dj_skual might want to take a look at that.

    Off-topic: I used to use utik all the time. But earlier when I tried to run it, it kept giving me an error and I deleted it and went to use wii u usb helper. Can you share your working version please?

    So, I gave up and left it alone the other day. I just went to USB helper again today and saw there is new update to the dlc. It is now 200KB larger with a few more files. After I downloaded it, I tried to install it, and to my surprise, it worked this time!

    So I'm guessing there was an error from the DLC side of it, and I spent hours trying to figure it out for nothing.

    Thanks for the help!

    I think that's right common key. what happens with the app? you may not have the dependencies like Microsoft virtual or .net framework. install the latest then try it.

    edit: looking over the instructions again. do you have the latest java installed? there's a checker on the java website. try that first. :)

    You need to edit your post removing those keys.

    How about if I wanted FW 5.5.1 and Browser 5.5.1? How would one go about doing it without buying a disc im on 5.4 with spoof 5.5.1 if I did do it following this method would I mod my console with following the guide for 5.5.2 FW? Just wondering since the browser is 5.5.1 following Kafluke noob guide

    Aside from the browser, there's no substantive difference whatsoever between 5.5.1 and 5.5.2. The simplest thing to do is to follow the guide in the first post. This will allow you to update your system from 5.4 to 5.5.2, but your browser will be updated from the 5.4 version to the still-vulnerable 5.5.1 version.
