    I may have discovered an eShop exploit. Requires no hacking or anything like that. Works on Wii U and probably 3DS and Switch too. However!

    I am loathe to post it publicly. It will be patched instantly. Please contact me if you are an admin here and I will PM you to discuss it!

    Would be illegal here as the site doesn't support warez.

    If I do post it, it will not last long. It is a very easy fix for a ridiculously stupid exploit, and honestly it should never have worked in the first place. It is very, very sloppy and careless behaviour. Therefore I am not posting it publicly for now. But I will... and it will be patched very quickly I'm sure... because of how it works - it will be flagged up immediately.

    Ok fair enough. It's not wares but a software exploit for eshop. I'll keep it to myself then, I guess

    If it is only an exploit you can share it here. I'm interested.

    I really don't think an exploit for getting free games from eshop is useful. If Nintendo finds out how it's done and they can identify who used the exploit, they might just instantly ban them (or even worse, legal action.) You might as well just hack the Wii U and pirate games if you want free games.

    The wii u is dead and a flop. Nintendo doesn't ban any players there as long as they don't cheat online. I mean, i play my mario kart 8 and splatoon online on the cemu emulator. They don't care about this console. The worst thing which can happen is this: They release an update which finally makes the freeshop on the consoles (if there was one like on the 3ds) and the usb helper completely unusable. Or haxchi/cbhc are unusable for the moment, as was the case with 3ds with the 11.8 update. Or they change the way it works behind the virtual console so that the games don't load .nds files directly.

    Ok that's pretty much proof that your exploit is quite indeed fake.
