    there's an exploit for boot1 I believe, but no one has developed anything from it. there's a list of exploits and how they work on wiiubrew iirc. afaik, no one is working on it, but I don't know for sure.

    This is still a great guide. The only 2 problems I have come across are below:

    #1 - The Homebrew Appsotre link has a 404 error (HBAS1.5). Whenever or wherever else I download HBAS1.5, the zip folder is empty...

    So for the Homebrew appstore I'm not up-to-date... and therefore, I am using a beta one.

    Am I the only one experiencing this issue? If not, can somebody link me to a download that isn't empty?

    #2 - Here goes issue #2 -> I still have no idea where to get the download files to hack into the Virtual Wii within the WiiU.

    I did end up eventually successfully completing step 3, but In a failed effort to perform the Backup sysnand (step 3) I thought I needed to install mocha.

    So I opened haxchi and downloaded it from the homebrew appstore, and then loaded/installed it from homebrew channel. Afterwards, I deleted mocha from the homebrew channel because I was hoping that would uninstall mocha. I'm still not sure if I installed mocha well, or if I am even using mocha anymore... though I think I recall seeing the mocha logo pop up on my screen at least once after deletion. Anyways, will my mocha situation matter if I just want to run some games via Wup Installer? In other words, Should I even worry about trying to uninstall mocha?

    Otherwise, here is the slightly less annoying problem I'm having
    So I kinda skipped over step 4 (game loading methods), because I wanted to hack the vWii before worrying about Wii U games. I plan on using my HDD which I for some reason partitioned into WBFS and Fat32 back when I had a hacked Wii but an un-hacked Wii U. The only pain in the butt I discovered thus far is that in order for the HDD to work I have to plug it in after running USB Loader GX on the virtual Wii. Does anybody know how to fix that issue? An update of something? A different USBloader? A way of transferring from WBFS to a WII U formatted external HDD?

    Depending on the workaround (or lack thereof) I might just have two different external HDDs. One for my Wii U & the other one would be for the virtual Wii.

    Hello,

    if you want two external hard drives:

    1) for the vwii mode hard drive, connect it to the back of the console. And use ==>https://gbatemp.net/threads/ustealth-wii-u-format-disk-nag-workaround.352786/

    2) for the external hard drive to format Wii U, connect it to the front of the console.

    But be aware that you can have on the same external hard drive (format wii U) ==> wii, wii U and Gamecube games. And use Usbhelper and WiiVC Injector Script (GC / Wii / Homebrew Support) ==>https://gbatemp.net/threads/working-fix-easy-install-wii-u-usb-helper-0-6-1-655.535214/ ==> https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wiivc-injector-script-gc-wii-homebrew-support.483577/

    Is this method fixed with today's update? I am unable to take NAND backup. It says "failed to open /otp.bin for writing! Error.. rebooting!"


    EDIT: I resolved the issue now! The SD card sleeve I was using was in 'locked' position. Just slid the slider upwards and everything is fine! ✌
