    Hey guys! I am planning to modify my Wii U, and I was wondering if there is a option to get 'free' wii u games dlc's, like the one from smash bros wii U.

    Oh man. I do not envy you. Before the onslaught begins allow me to tell you that there is no modifying your Wii U. I am getting out of your blood circle now.

    you might be able to get free dlc if your wii u version has a public kernel exploit

    obviously this kernel exploit isnt out yet

    You can get everything but DLC to run off game dumps. Updates work, eshop titles work, discs work online and can use DLC but no DLC for digital game dumps running on your SD card.

    Also your Wii U firmware can't be higher than 5.4 to run game dumps.

    I know splatoon dlc are free and that a level from super smash bros is free, but that's all I know.

    Just buy the dlc if you wants it. And if possibly the game itself too.

    Afaik it's no problem to download dlc's for free.
    Just use nusgrabber or a gui.
    But you can't use them.

    Ah damd.. sorry for the noob question guys. Been checking it out since 13' and hoped there would be some kind of progress. But backup-games is possible right? Or are all those YouTube vid's and topics just trolling. I see alot of video's, some say you need a SD card + batman game, other say you need ssbwiiu. Getting confusing. Was it just as easy as the Wii back in the days. :P

    Ah great! Thanks. Looking it up now. I am planning to buy some dlc's for super smash bros, do I need to purcashe them now before implementing loadline or will buying dlc's force me to update to a version I can't use loadliine with?

    as off now no,
    loadiine only works on 5.3.2 and 5.4.0 and if your abode those then forget backups.

    to go to e shop you need a 5.3.2 or 5.4.0 console and spoofe it to 5.5.1 so you can eneter e shop after using the nnu patcher.

    if your abode 5.4.0 then forget backups altogether.
