    There's already games on my SD card so I want to know what will happen to them after installing CFW? Will my Wii U work as normal just with the new homebrew stuff?

    Sure, why would you think it's not possible? :)

    (Any decent guide will yell you to set up an update-blocking DNS, which inherently blocks the eShop too; but a homebrew called NNU Patcher allows you to temporarily reenable it for just when you want to

    Plus, you can make legal backups for when the servers will close/you will change console/you just want to reinstall without redownloading!

    BTW games don't install to the SD card, only to internal storage or USB drives

    Actually if he were using rednand (which he probably isn't) then it would install to the SD Card thinking it was internal memory. (I'm really nitpicky)

    I'm just following this guide https://wiiu.guide/ to homebrew and I'm guessing its the "coldboothax" version?

    Also, if I need more storage I can just use an external HDD like I would do for the OFW Wii U?
