    I purchased a pre-hacked Wii U second hand recently which the seller stated came with Haxchi installed. I have connected a 1TB external USB hard drive, formatted it and successfully installed 8 titles using Wii U USB Helper (patched with version 0.15b of USBHelperLauncher). When I try to install using WUP Installer GX2, at least half the titles throw up the error message "verify WUP files are correct and complete dlc/eshop require sig". I don't think it's a case of corrupt downloads, I suspect it's more to do with how the Wii U has been hacked. The problem I have is that I don't know how to determine which type of hack is installed and there isn't a backup of the NAND on the supplied SD card. I am worried if I start playing around with anything without the prior knowledge then I might brick the console. I was hoping that someone might be able to help identify the hack used and then I can go away and search for possible solutions. Many thanks.

    Here is everything I know about my Wii U console:

    System software version: 5.5.4 E

    Contents of the included 64gb SD card - directory / file listing (abridged) *I have added some brief output of .txt files and .log's

    Many thanks, I ran sign patcher first and the title installed without any problems. I was under the impression I had cold boot haxchi installed and therefore wouldn't need to run anything else to patch sigs, obviously that wasn't the case. Thank you so much for your kind help.

    When haxchi is installed, you don't need any signature patcher anymore.

    If you have cbhc installed, you would see the firmware version 99.99.99E or something like this in the system settings. And an autoboot menu at boot. And your statement is correct. Start haxchi and you dont need any separate signature patchers anymore.

    Hello,

    @ baamalex:

    I had to launch "Sig patcher" before launching "wup installer" for some games, I do not know which ones, but not many games, I had to do like this.

    You don't need to launch "Sig Patcher", or any other signature patching homebrew for that matter! You already have Haxchi installed, you just need to learn how to use it properly. Next time do this: Launch Haxchi and while it's loading hold down the "B" button on your gamepad. Continue holding "B" until you are taken right back to the system menu. You are now in CFW.
    BOOM!!! PROBLEM SOLVED
