    Yes you can.
    btw you need to buy anything to use cfw, you can launch mocha from the browser if you really need to.

    Some people tend to think that you have to have haxchi (and therefor buy a ds vc) to use cfw, and the way you wrote it out made it seem like you thought that.

    Be sure to check these: :P

    Up to date guides:
    WiiUBrU Guide [wiiubru.com/guide]
    Kafluke's Noob Guide [Sticky]
    my redNAND-free guide [Tutorial Section]

    Kinda up to date:
    MattKimura's Wii U hacking guide [Tutorials section]

    Don't follow this guide for various reasons:
    wiiu.guide

    In Wii U scene, you want to know what you're doing and why you should do it. Blindly following something will result in useless amount of people 'bricking' [Mostly their redNAND corrupted] or somebody will install a system app because a guide told him to.

    The biggest reason not to follow that guide is because it doesn't explain anything. There is not a one size fits all solution. There are many different options for different circumstances. That guide doesn't give you an explanation it just says "do this".

    Also big big red flag, no nand backup section

    Fair enough. That's the guide I used twice with no problems. But good reasoning

    Both. Btw, Wii U has flash memory so refer to it as "NAND" ;)

    None unless you're installing system titles then there's a high risk.
    I myself installed BotW to NAND and it works just fine.

    I like how in the 3DS scene, everyone is like "USE 3DS.GUIDE", but in the WiiU scene: "AVOID WIIU.GUIDE LIKE ITS THE PLAUGE"
