    I don't think there is any media player homebrew on WiiU.
    you'll have to use vWii mode, or maybe try to inject WiiMC dol into a WiiU channel (with VC injector), but I don't know if WiiMC works that way.

    Sorry for the late reply-

    Yes, I did post this backward. Fat32 WON'T let you have lowercase letters, so it doesn't make sense for the guide to say put lowercase letters when it can confuse people.

    I have spent this morning looking for greater details, and even walked through it with a rubber ducky to no avail.

    So I setup a SD card trying to follow the instructions from the first post. I go to the website indicated, and wind up with a black screen stating "FSOpenFile failed". Per Brawl345's post, this indicates an issue with the file not being located (more-stable-webhack-for-5-5-2-5-5-3-released.528757)

    SD card is brand new, formatted using guiformat.exe, 32768 allocation unit size (default).

    Things I have tried:
    • Using autorun.inf to set the label as sd (label=sd)
    • Leaving name blank during format (defaults to Removable Disk)
    • Formatting with SD as the label
    • Lock/unlock the SD card
    • Redownload several times the payload.elf file (directly from u.wiidb)
    • Multiple reboots/resetting of browser data
    The WiiU can see the SD card as tested via putting an image of a Mii on it and verifying its presence via the PC.

    What am I missing?

    Thats why file structure is shown in image 2 and 3. Per onlineMD5 my version of the payload has the following hashes for verification:

    MD5 is 2DFCDECEE0E5BAF5CD97A062B031F923
    SHA-1 A2841C2DFC85177BF6FBAB59B910719FED17A8DC
    SHA-256 is D95735BF45E490AE87EB634654F8F372B90661898802851E77D4E412A1A85C65

    Also note the bullet points about deleting browser save data already being attempted.

    Hey hey I was wondering something about browserhax & mocha cfw.

    As I understand it browserhax is the temporary mod method for HBL yup yup all clear there..

    I'm wondering if I do browserhax & load mocha am I good from there to load with things like loadiine & whatever usb loading is supported ?

    Or even after mocha is loaded would I still need to do the browserhax on every reboot.. go into HBL & launch mocha.. ?

    Thanks much /salute

    everything seems ok,the letter H is assigned by the compute or you ?did you try using another adapter.
    try this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/more-stable-webhack-for-5-5-2-5-5-3-released.528757/ for liftoff you can then continue with this guide
    (delete the payload.elf and the homebrew launcher stuff and replace it with the ones from this guide)
    check the slot of the wii u for dust build up

    The H:/ is computer assigned, I have 4 logical disk drives, and a DVD-RW drive, so C, D, E, F, G are all assigned. I don't have another adapter but could look at that.

    Using the other instructions figured out the mistake. So apparently the FSOpenFile can ALSO refer to not locating the homebrew_launcher.elf which in my case was caused by downloading the v2.1 RPX version of the homebrew_launcher, not the v1.4.

    Suggestion for OP: Change your HERE link to the .zip of the desired launcher, not the releases.

    Downloading the HBLv1.4 got me into the launcher properly.

    Can I load games from a USB drive with WUPInstaller ?

    I also see it mentioned often to convert a USB drive to WiiU Format..

    How ? I'm not finding any of the guides & threads specifying this..

    put the usb device in the usb port of your wiiu and go in settings(somewhere in data management ,it's been a while) and let the wii u format (the device(you will lose everything on the usb device and will become unreadable to computer).
    you can load games from usb when installed with wup,i believe thats in the tut

    So you can still plug the Wii-U formatted drive into a PC to be downloading the games to with WII USB Helper or similar utilities ?

    Thanks much for the info thus far :-)

    -Edit oh wait it seems you said will be unreadable to the PC.. understood.

    How do I get the games from my downloaded Wii USB Helper to the Wii-U drive ?

    So the USB Helper seems to have more than Wii-U games in there..

    GC for example..

    Won't work with Wup Installer & have to be injected into vWii ?

    Only Wii-U games on the Wii-U side.. everything else on vWii side ?

    with wii vc injector the wii&gc are installed like a wiiu game ,but they are injected in the vwii(doesn't need to be hacked).you only need techmoons vc injector and the iso's of the game,...and you need to be in cfw ,gc games on usbhelper are for nintendon't and do not have the game itself.only gc,nes,snes,wii games that where made for the virtual console by nintendo will work on your wiiu using usbhelper.
