    I installed a game that I got through a "helper for WiiU" using WUP Installer (I ran Mocha CFW before installing)
    My question is: what do I do when I want to uninstall it? Do i go to System Settings and remove it from there? (it's installed on the system NAND by the way, not on USB)
    And when I want to install it again, I do it through WUP Installer like the first time?

    I know this must be a silly question but I just got my WiiU and the softmod for this thing is very complicated, unlike the softmod for the Wii, and I don't want to screw up.
    Thanks.

    Is there any other way to uninstall games from NAND? If i open the data management on my WiiU and select System Storage it gets stuck in an endless loop. If i select thge HDD everything works fine.:huh:

    After thinking about how the hole data thing is handled on the Wii U I've found a solutiion myself: Because i could open the data management on the HDD side i moved a little demo (ca. 160 MB) to the NAND. After that i could move the games that are, possibly, the cause for the problem from the NAND to the HDD. Now Everything works fine again.:D:toot:

    He said that it would loop when he chose internal memory. He got it fixed though.

    Probably due to a bad install/update.

    There are other ways too but I didn't have a chance to reply before he got it fixed.

    I've found out another interesting bug: :huh:
    I have at the moment 21GB free on my NAND.
    I'm on my way to dump my collection to my WiiU with disc2app and i install them with WUP Installer GX2. Because i load the installer from the homebrew channel trough haxchi it fails to install the games directly to the HDD. It fails to recognize the HDD. So i install them on the NAND and move them with the WiiU data managment.
    If i want to use the data managment I have to choose the NAND and wait till it hangs/loops. Then i must force-shutdown the WiiU, go to data managment, choose HDD, move a demo to the NAND and only after that i'm able to move the demo and the installed game to the HDD.
    If i instead move the demo imedeatly to the NAND it doesn't work and it still hangs if i choose the NAND.
    If anybody founds a easier solution for my problem it would be great.:yayu:
