    The game support is crap on the Brazilian method of doing things, in fact, I'd rather not have it at all because it annoys me that i can't get the games i want! Can i get it with a 32gb sd card? I don't have a 64gb sd card so i am out of luck on RedNAND. Thanks.


    EDIT: I am so sorry, let me fix the title: Can I use a different method than the Brazilian exploit to get games?

    Nope, you're going to need a 64GB one.

    White Wii U's NAND = 8GB (Needs 16GB SD card)
    Black Wii U's NAND = 32GB (Needs 64GB SD card)

    Basically you need a full 1:1 clone of your Consoles NAND on the SD, if you buy a 32GB SD you won't actually have 32GB, more like 28GB, so you need the next size up

    Its only risky if you do stupid things like installing sysconfig and fuck around with it.

    Exactly, RedNAND takes tards into consideration and allows you to recover from those situations

    I mean a 64GB SD costs like £10

    How is it risky? Its by Dimok who basically released everything in the wii u scene (Loadiine, Homebrew channel, ect).

    It's risky compared to using RedNAND, if something goes wrong you can't just restore your NAND backup

    Explain what you can do that goes wrong. (excluding sys config) Its not like the op is a dev that needs brick protection.

    Its like rednand. You need to boot it each time your wii u turns on/enters system settings. (You can do coldboothax but I wouldn't recommend it) Wup installer will install any game that has a tik whether legit or not.

    I have no idea, but there's always a possibility of something going awry, I'd rather just have that extra layer of protection until something more solid similar to A9LH comes out ;)

    (Better to be safe than sorry)
