    I'm about to install homebrew on my Wii U(going to use browser since I can't buy Brain Age with my credit card) then I will use WUP Installer GX2 and I was wondering, do I need to activate homebrew everytime I want to played those pirated games? Or do I only need to activate it once to install them on my NAND/USB then I can just start my Wii U and play them directly?

    Thanks!

    Depends, if the title was installed with a legit ticket then no signature patching is required. If the title was installed with a fake ticket ie: DLC or Eshop only titles then you will need to have signature patching(CFW) active prior to launching those titles.

    So games like Mario Maker, 3D World and Yoshis Woolly World can be run without CFW if I use the right region?
    How do I download a legit key game(not links, like tips on how to find the correct typr to dl).

    Use one of the NUS downloaders like WiiU USB Helper or my app FunKii-UI. Both of which will tell you if a title has a legit ticket available

    Used USB Helper to DL those games above, how do I know if I downloaded a legit ticket version and not a fake eshop ticket?

    Scratch that, my games are legit.

    Anyway, can I use this tutorial to install those games?

    Holy shit it works, using WUP Installer GX2 with legit games from USB Helper, just finished installing Maker and 3D world and waiting for woolly world and I can run with them without the homebrew files on the SD card.

    AFAIK, WiiU USB helper have a filter option specific to show/hide CFW Only items. So people who come here and doesn't know, try setting it to not bring CFW Only items, so you can download only games that will work without signature patching.

    Thanks all, i was able to get smash downloaded and run mario lart 8 mods through loadiine using the usb game of smash for the boot method.

    A quick question, how do I unpack a game to have it loaded through loadiine again? Like an update of the game and such?

    If it had a physical release, such as Zelda BotW, or Pikmin 3, nope

    If it's digital only (including virtual console)
