    That will work but are you aware there are other methods for loading games?

    Loadiine is pretty much obsolete at this point

    It's possible to download and install games directly to the home menu provided that you have the ticket file or title key for the game you want to install

    Someone has written a pretty comprehensive guide for everything

    https://github.com/FlimFlam69/WiiUTutorial/wiki

    The new alternative to Loadiine is known as the "Brazilian Method"

    The name is silly but it's because it was some Brazilian hacker that figured out that the files weren't decrypted correctly... the name just stuck...

    If you're not in 5.5.1 update is better for this

    You can download wii u games with uTikDownloadHelper (update and dlc to (you must have a CFW as like moha or fw.img for dlc)) or in the Iso site (with mega links
    And then you have a folder (the game) with .app .h3 .tik .cert and .tmd files
    put this folder in SD://install
    and put In SD://wiiu/apps this homebrew :

    -Homebrew launcher
    -Wupinstaller mod Y

    go to loadiine.ovh with the wii u browser, select homebrew launcher 1.4 (I think ?)
    you should be in the homebrew launcher
    go to wupinstaller
    then press X to install the game in the Usb/HDD

    If you don't have regionhax you must install game of your wii u region (E = Eur, U = Usa, J = Jap)

    It's better to install the game in a usb/HDD

    With this you can play online !

    (sorry for my bad english ^^')

    But if you don't want to mess with rednand or Cfw for out of region titles or shop titles then Loadiine still is a bloody good solution

    I'm really confused on what to choose, and how to install it. :blink:
    First of all, USB/HDD solutions means that that hack will run games from pen drive or HD right? Wii U supports every HD 2.5/3.5 or pen drives like a normal pc?

    Also, which is the better hack to run games via USB?

    If you want a noob friendly answer you're choice is simple. Forget about Loadiine. Focus on "Brazilian" method. Man I hate that name.

    Bullshit... there is no need of CFW or rednand for the simple "big games"... CFW is only needed for DLC's and eshop only games...

    Thank you..... You Just confirmed my bullshit..... No eshop and out of region games without messing with your system... Loadiine works fine with those.

    You don't mess with your system though. you run a file on your sd card and you can run eshop until reboot.

    Your best option is to just use the "Brazilian" method

    "CFW" is just an app like loadiine but it patches the system so that it can launch anything

    I don't know if loadiine can be used as a channel either...
