Wow, that would be cool.
Do I need to first mod the wii u with homebrew like the Wii before I try to set up this USB loader? I am new to the wiiU. Ive already moded my wii.
no, you don't need a persistent hack before doing this.
you can use temporary homebrew enabled applications to install the games to your console, then the game will stay on the console and can be launched without using any homebrew.
system menu > Browser > homebrew channel > wup installer
then you launch your game from system menu > select your game
Note that it's not always the case:
if you install a game from your region, and originating from a Disc (game released as DISC format), it will work without launching a homebrew before launching the game.
all other games (games released on eShop only, DLC, custom games, other region, etc.) will require a patch to install and launch.
system menu > CFW patches > non legit games install or launch
The CFW can also be temporary or persistent, it's up to you to choose your patching method.
full detail is on the previous page (users should at least read last few pages before asking the same question over and over, it's asked on EVERY pages).
is that info missing on the first post, or just not read by users?
I should add it or make it more visible, for the users reading it.
I added it at the top, in the description of the method.
what does DLC mean? I see you can load game, updates or DLC?
I successfully installed several games into the HDD with WUPinstaller and CFWBooter.
The problem is that I installed Pokken Tournament and it's update yet everytime I select the game it goes into a black screen and everything freezes, I'm not even able to access the home option.
Anyone has any idea of what could be wrong?
Try deleting the game and reinstalling. Are you confident of the source of the files?
I got the files from UtikDownloadHelper. I'll try to do it again then.
so if I were to grab legend of Zelda twilight princess so I can keep my disc and box nice is there a way to use the same save
Try downloading from Wii U USB helper. This app has the ability to check every file after a download to verify it was downloaded fine. Also it can verify the files before you copy them to your SD card. I had an issue with two games downloaded with uTikDownloadHelper were the Wii U freezes when launching the games.

Please let @BurningDesire know what is ambiguous about this part of the OP, so others won't have to ask the same question:
I'm having an issue with Color Splash where it just boots to the splash screen (screen with a sepia tone and the title) and the music just loops over and over (catchy tune, tbh). The Gamepad ceases to function and the only way to regain control of the system is to do a full shutdown.
Anyone have any idea as to what's causing this?
I moved it to my internal memory and it started working (up until it froze after the first cinema screen )
Well for one. Last time i read the op fully was a wile Ago. And then i assumed. I would have to use saveiin or something so i didnt reread the op. But thanks for the info. Now i just have to figure out how to move stuff to usb. This isbthe first time ive put a hdd on my 16gb wii u
Try another copy of the game, that usually works for me.
Is it possible to install games to SD card or only NAND/USB?
Just checking... You know you either have to swap the displays before you start or turn on your TV, right? Color Splash doesn't have that "Look at your TV" message for your gamepad after the ship comes into the port.
The most likely cause is a corrupt game. What are you using to download the game? I recommend using Wii U USB helper, it performs checks after every file download to verify game's integrity. Also can perform checks when sending the game using the same app to guarantee you won't end up with a corrupt game.

My heads swimming a bit, didnt know there was so much to hacking a wiiu OR which hack to use. Im going to hack an EU wiiu. I m going to hack my daughters new wiiu, so need to be careful, if I brick it, I'll be well and truly up sh*t creek without a paddle lol. Weve got a few wiiu games, a 500gb hdd and a 32gb class 10 sd card so i guess Im ready to begin.
THE BASIC WAY IS REALY EASY THIS is easy compared to the 3ds lol
Anyone know if there is any ongoing project to use a HDD FAT32 or other format?
