    "CDecrypt to decrypt/extract from NUS downloads with NUS title key(extracted from ticket). however WUD dump needs special hardware from what I've heard."

    I thought that atm cdecrypt needs de wiiu common key to decrypt NUS games and not the title key??

    yes, pm me, or report the post.
    (don't PM me, I'm here now :P)

    I don't think I'll sticky it (we already have a lot), but also because there are some mistakes (mainly chronological mistakes).
    that's nice to write it, and I know it takes a lot of time to do, but if you want to make a hacking progress, I may send you a PM.
    I would like to make a hacking progress on the wiki, with major advancement and releases. I have lot of info since January 2015 (I wish to add previous one too), but miss a good write up. (miss time to write it and make a nice page). I already contacted someone else to work together, if you are willing to help, let me know.
    I wish to make a more chronological page (like the last link on your first post), instead of "current possibilities". maybe that's not what you want.

    Yes I'm an outsider of the Wii U hacking scene, so I'm not the person to write what you're suggesting, if you think my writing is worth a bit, I'm more than glad to help if you need any.

    And Yes, my title/wording is horrible, English is not my native language, "current possibilities" is more like what I'm doing, more user oriented. but I can't edit titles, I'd appreciated it if you can do that for me.

    ah, don't worry, I didn't mean your title was wrong.
    I just wasn't sure if you wanted to make a chronological information, or a current situation information.

    so, it's fine. it will help users to know what choices they have right now.
    I guess if that's the purpose of this thread, it could be stickied to help user know their possibilities.

    Maybe someone could help you with english? you can give edit access to your first post to any user who want to help you. (preferably someone who followed the WiiU hacking this past months)

    I mean, is it stick-able with an appropriate title?

    I could stick it with another title, and better presentation and information.

    For example, proper section (not "=====" to make underline or chapters, etc.)

    if you want, you can use [ h] that to make a blue line, with font size 4 or 5

    Example size=4


    Also, I think you used too many bold text, and it's defeating the purpose of making it more important, because too many things are like that making it just "like everything else".

    I updated it a bit. bold is used when a new term comes up or summarize of the paragraph, I think it's reasonable.

    Just to notice that hexFW is in a usable state, but you need to build it yourself. As a note loadiine.ovh supports hexFW's browserhax based launching.

    Since when do you NOT need RedNAND for DLC or eShop?

    Is that patch applied to an image on SD card? Or directly to the consoles system software?
