    Use the wup installer. But you need a cfw for this. Haxchi or coldboot haxchi. Coldboot haxchi is an upgrade for the "normal" haxchi and requires an ds virtual console game legally bought from the eshop. Look here for an detailed guide.

    Cbhc is not an upgrade, its exactly the same. You need a legal ds game for either. Cb is just cold boot haxchi which saves you 10 seconds from turning on your wiiu and clicking the haxchi title if you need cfw. If you dont need cfw its actually quicker not to use it.

    Dont use that guide quoted above because its shit. Use kaflukes guide stickied in this very forum.

    Well actually the one quoted above work fine, that was the one I used, Kaflukes one is much more confusing since his still old stuff like rednand in the guide.

    Why? It is easy to understand and easy to make. You dont need rednand or mocha. Cbhc from my linked guide is enough.

    Thanks for the info guys with haxchi is there 2 or three ways of running it? The web browser exploit? With the shop game for Cold boot. Is there another way of running it from the shop game without cold boot haxchi?

    Coldboot haxchi means it will run/start by itself after every starting the console. Haxchi must started manually from the homemenu. The haxchi icon i mean.

    You need only one. Coldboot Haxchi.

    Coldboot haxchi is not a must have. Coldboot Haxchi is slightly more dangerous than standard Haxchi because your DS Virtual Console game exploit is the only way to boot the system.

    Because the kids while be using it I was thinking of non coldboot hatchi.

    Is it still through a VC game or a diff way?

    What for other ways? You must perform the Haxchi exploit manually after each reboot if you dont want to install coldboothax. Coldboot Haxchi is slightly more dangerous than standard Haxchi but it causes your wii u to launch CFW automatically at boot. Read the guide which i have linked dude. Its very good detailed and easy to master.

    You dont need any mods like rednand. Important is here that you want to install games. Use coldboot haxchi to disable the signature patches and wup installer. You dont need more.

    Ok I think I understand now is haxchi only work if u get a VC game u can do it at boot up cold boot or manually by using the game.
    I think I was confused by Browserhax is that just a web browser temp hack?

    Yeah. Thats right. Internet Browser is temp. You need haxchi to run the exploit without the Internetbrowser after Installation. But dont forget...you must buy the DS VC game. Pirated games wont work.
