    If your regular sd reader in the Wii u doesn't work your only choice is to use a special build of Mocha that will read a fat32 USB drive and allow you to install from it.

    I keep on getting "Can't mount sd card" when I do finally get the site to work.
    I have
    sd>hackchi>bootDrcTvTex.tga, boottvTex.tga, config, iconTex.tga, title
    sd>wiiu>apps>appstore> hbas.elf, icon,meta
    haxchi>haxchi.elf> icon,meta
    homebrew_launcher>homebrew_launcher.elf, icon, meta

    I'm guessing I didn't have put all that stuff down, but I didn't want to leave anything out just in case.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    @Binxy :


    You must format your SD in fat32

    It is in Fat32. It was the first thing I did, and to make sure I for some reason forgot to I just checked.

    Do you have your vwii hacked? I always like to go into the HBC and insert my SD on that screen. It will real time populate with your vwii homebrew if it detects the sd. If not, pull out the SD and reinsert it until your vwii homebrew shows up. Once it shows up you can exit back Wii u menu and know at that point that the SD is at least detected. If you still get the error after that then you don't have your files in the correct directories

    I don't have my vwii hacked.
    I did get it to work with a 16gb sd card. I don't understand why it will not work with the 64 gb I just bought. Garbage thing!

    Is it a micro SD or an SD?

    It's SD.
    I got it to work. I reformated to fat32 again and it started working.
    I'm dumping my nand right now.

    Thank you for this guide, still really usefull.
    I wanted to install Haxchi on a european console that was still with its stock lower firmware.
    So I was looking for a EUR game, preferably a JRPG to update to 5.5.1, I found and tested this one that is not on your list :
    Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_Mirage_Sessions_♯FE
    Maybe you can add this title. Its NA, AU and EU release date was june 2016, so all these regions will work.

    I checked the tutorial and I think there is a mistake. Step one SET UP YOUR BLOCKING. After doing this you won't be able to buy the DS game anymore as the shop is blocked already, right ? So the blocking must happen after installing the game.

    Its correct. It instructs you to use NNU patcher before browsing the eshop

    I have a micro sdxc card with adapter from samsung, 64gb, I formatted it with guiformat put all the files in it as you say in the instructions but when inserted the card in WII U nothing happened. I even turned off the wii and restarted it with the sd card inside and still nothing. When I try to go to eshop to buy a DS game it shows me error 105-4206. There is no disk inside the WII U, I am using windows 7 and the name of the SD is always in capital letters even if you write with small letters, only on Linux or Mac I might be able to rename the card with small letters. I renamed the card to several names but still not able to go to eshop.

    Hello,

    @ Nuyen :

    Test with a normal SDXC, no micro SD.

    You say you can not go on the Eshop, did you put the DNS to block the updates ??

    If so, configure your Wii U normally and you can go to the Eshop.

    What firmware are you on? If you're on 5.5.2 then you can turn off blocking to get on eshop. Then turn it back on after

    Hi guys. Joined gbatemp 10 years ago, right after getting my Wii.
    Today, after few years of hiatus in modding, I decided to mod my Wiiu. I have successfully installed Haxchii. Now, where should I go?
    1 what homebrew I use, to install channels? I mean, I want to install homebrew channel first, and some backuploader.
    2 what backup loader I should get for backups of hdd playing? Is there few like in case of Wii?
    Thanx in advance for response.

    Go through the guide in the OP. It explains how to load games and what your options are.
