    hello. No matter what I try through ftp client when connecting to Nintendo wii u nand, it keeps telling me "failed to retrieve directory" error through FileZilla, same through other ftp clients, I can't see the directory folders. I don't know how to fix this, am I ok with just dns blocking updates, but then will be unable to update games? Please any help would be appreciated, I've been stressing out over this.

    Hello. No matter what I try while following these steps, I am getting "failed to retrieve directory" error through FileZilla ftp client. I launch ftpiiu.elf, then enter the ip and port into filezilla. I am seeing the root directory of the nand, but am not able to see anything else when exploring it tells me "failed to retrieve directory".

    This has been stressing me out. Should I just block updating through dns? But then I won't be able to update games? Please help.

    Thanks for responding.
    Yes I am using haxchi, following through the instructions in Kafluke's guide. Then I am taking the corresponding steps, I downloaded ftpiiu_everywhere for haxchi and followed the steps for haxchi.

    I tried another ftp client, cyberduck, with the same results: I can see the root directory of the wii u, but when double-clicking on the storage_mlc folder I am unable to see its contents. For FileZilla it reports "failed to retrieve directory".

    Thank you for any help. I am currently going with the dns method, but would like this to get working, if possible.

    Although you've said you're using Haxchi, have you executed it twice? You need to run it the first time and select your sysmenu button (if it's not the default) to patch the system, then run it again and select your HBL button. If you're only running it once to get HBL, you haven't patched the system, so the directories won't be there.
