    I've finally figured out how to bypass the problem of having external drives for both the Wii U side and the V Wii side however now there is just one more problem i can't find any solution to and is frustrating because it's the only obstacle left. To save having to type everything again you can just see it all by going here -

    Everything you need to know about what i need help with is there, the reason i put "**DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ**" is because i'm guessing it will require someone who knows what they're doing to fix this... a technical sorta person and i'm NOT one of those :( If someone can find a solution can you please explain everything in a step-by-step, Wii-hacking-for-dummies sorta way? Thanks.

    P.S. Yes i did already download that WiiMC that was labelled as compatible with UStealth but buggered if i know what to do with it! lol.

    Ok no replies so far :( Ok so i downloaded a file called "UStealth Compatible WiiMC" which appeared to be self-explanatory (that's why i downloaded it) and it downloaded as a zip file which i'll show pics here of what it looked like when extracted. So first...

    and then after opening the apps folder i get the "WiiMC" folder which i already know to add to my apps folder on my sd card but HERE is where i could use some help. In THAT folder is both a BOOT and an ELF file. Can someone who knows about this stuff tell me if maybe the mistake i'm making is having them both in the same folder? I don't even know what an "ELF" file even is or what to do with it. The person who created this swears it works so i must be doing something wrong.

    For one, you don't have the boot.dol in a program folder.

    You need /apps/<app_name>/boot.dol

    I don't think you need the boot.elf.

    Umm yes i do, i said that in the description. It's an a folder called "WiiMC" I know how to do homebrew stuff and if you look at the file path in the second pic it shows a folder named that so i didn't think it was necessary taking a pic and having a third one up.

    This is where i got everything from -

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/ustealth-wii-u-format-disk-nag-workaround.352786/page-8#post-4897911

    and there he states - "However, following the tutorial I linked to it should be possible to compile your own modified version, even for someone not familiar with development environments." Umm no... we're not all rocket scientists like you mate. I looked at that link and you might aswell be showing me the Matrix itself! I haven't got a f**king clue what to do there.
