    I can't use my computer's SD card reader. Is it possible to use the Wii U to send things to the SD card over the network? I have HBL on the SD card, so that might help?

    I can use someone else's laptop to transfer some files. But it would be interesting to see if there's some hacky solution to my problem that uses the Wii U and doesn't involve borrowing any additional hardware.

    Thanks, I'll ask a friend to add ftpiiu to the SD card.

    But that involves "borrowing hardware", any idea of how I could launch ftpiiu without the files already on the memory card? (Just curious)

    No SD card slot

    I've got one coming in a few days. I don't need it now, I was just wondering if there were any other solutions.

    Loadiine GX2 can download game covers, so there must be a way to download things on to the SD card off the internet. I think HBL had a homebrew download feature back in the Wii days. Any plans for updating the Wii U HBL to do the same?

    The old wii homebrew launcher could not download files you had to install an app called homebrew browser to the homebrew launcher menu and it worked like every other app did that you had to launch through the homebrew launcher.
