You will need an external hard drive and the SD card. In my case I also needed certain wire because the hard drive didn't receive enough power (https://www.amazon.es/gp/aw/d/B01NAQPWYK/ref=yo_ii_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I will leave some more links to the things I needed. Also, you will need format the hard drive to certain "mode" so the Wii u can read it and format it (the "modes" depend on the windows version you use, the Wii u wont read the newest modes). I recommend a 500gb one, specially if you plan to play a lot of games.

SD: mine is 32gb. The bigger it is, the more games you get to install at a time.

For the hacking, there are plenty of tutorials here and also on YouTube. I recommend you to install haxchi.

If you're on 5.5.1, it is recommended that you block updates before accidentally installing 5.5.2. The browser exploit is much less stable on 5.5.2, and there's no reason to update.

If you plan on buying a DS VC title for Haxchi or CBHC, then it doesn't matter if you update to 5.5.2.

Or you could read the community noob guide here on temp. Written by many temp users instead of just one person and constantly updated.

Just wondering ive found a 8 gig SD card .. could i use this as a start ? chances of me getting a bigger one anytime soon is unlikely
Yeah that should be fine. When you are on the nand backup step just get otp.bin and seeprom and you'll be fine if you need to hardmod to fix later.

get-started

Follow this guide to get started, however you will need to find your fw version in system settings.

NNNNOOOOOOooooooo do NOT read or follow this guide. It is well known to be rubbish and wrong. Follow this guide and youll be back here asking how to do things properly. Use Kaflukes guide. If you follow wiiu.guide youll be installing haxchi and mocha and rednand and god knows what else for absolutely no reason at all. All you need is haxchi. End of. Unless you cant buy a DS games then use mocha. No need for rednand.

My advice...forget wiiu.guide.
