Hello everyone! I have decided to make a short guide about injecting and dumping save games to and from the Wii U using FTP

This method requires a device capable of FTP connected to the same network as the Wii U (a PC, an Android phone etc.). The Wii U also needs to haxe CFW (ex. Haxchi or Mocha). You have to have Mocha running first to make sure FTPiiU can access NAND files


1.Grab FTPiiU from (https://github.com/FIX94/ftpiiu/releases) and install it like any other homebrew app (Create a folder named ftpiiu in /wiiu/apps and put the downloaded file there)

2.Start your Wii U normally

3.Get into the Homebrew Launcher via your preferred method (You should know how to do this if you followed pretty much any wii u hacking guide - https://gbatemp.net/threads/mattkimuras-wii-u-hacking-guide.462121/unread)

4.Launch ftpiiu like a normal Homebrew app. An ip adress with a port should appear at the bottom left on both your gamepad and tv it should look something like this XXX.XXX.X.XX:XX where X is a number

5.On your device (connected to the same network as your wii u) open your favorite FTP client (on Windows you can even use the stock windows explorer by typing in ftp://XXX.XXX.XX.XX:XX/ [Replace X with the numbers from your IP]) and input the ip adress (up to the ":") in "host" and the numbers after : to port

WARNING! FTP HAS ACCESS TO A LOT OF YOUR NAND'S DELICATE DATA, REMOVING OR REPLACING ANY FILES COULD POTENTIALLY BRICK YOU. PROCEED WITH CAUTION AND I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR BRICKS!

6.Go to the correct folder depending on the location of your game /storage_usb/usr/save/00050000/ for games on external drives (flash drives, external HDDs) /storage_mlc/usr/save/00050000/ for games on your NAND (the console)
(any folders in save other than 00050000 contain savedata for system titles. DO NOT TOUCH THEM)

7.Go to the correct folder of your game. You can find which folder corresponds to which game by looking at the title key site(you should know what this site is)


8.Go into user and select the correct user to replace the save file or into common to replace common data (folder ending with 50 should be the EUR version and 40 should be the US version)

9. Copy over the files from 50 to 40, and say yes to replacing the files.

10.After replacing turn off your ftp client and return to homebrew menu by pressing the Home button

11.Thats it! Launch your game to check. Let me know if you have any issues. I personally like this metod over saviine but do not use this method if you dont know what you are doing.


I think WINscp is the best FTP client for Windows. Get it here https://winscp.net/eng/index.php

Thank you for the guide ! Just a question however ; What are the benefits of playing on the NA version anyways? (VS just continuing on the EU version?) Is it really just not having to run mocha everytime?

Thats right, no need to run Mocha everytime you want to launch the game. And if there are new updates for the game it should download and install without issues if you have an NA console.

Not sure why you would want both copies. You can delete the EUR game and update and keep the save. When you install the US version, the EUR save file won't be affected(2 different titles). After the install, use the guide to move your EUR save to your US game folder.

Do you have to pass the intro and save the game manually for this to work? I am replacing all the files from the EU 80000001 directory and putting them in the US directory but the game keeps playing the intro and doesn't register my EU saves.


Edit: Still nothing. Every time I launch the game it "prepares" and deletes any save data that I copied to the US Zelda directory.

I'm currently playing the EUR Version on loadiine but the load times are unbearable, so I'm looking to install the US version with wupinstaller tonight, but I this method work for me? Or I'm better using saviine, and injecting the save from my pc?

I'm fairly new to the wii u scene, so I'm being extra cautious

The title id of EUR version is101C9500 and the US version 101C9400. Make sure you are using the correct folder.
I did, it resets the save data literally every time I launch it. I tried playing in a few minutes to see if that did anything, saved and closed it. When I reopened it it had deleted the saves again.

Thanks for the guide, but it sadly doesn't seem to work for me. Dunno if I missed some part, but doing this only gives me access to the sdcard inside the WiiU. It doesn't show anything else. I tried connecting to the ftp address + storage (ex: ftp://192.168.0.0:00/storage) but it denied me permission.

You have to run CFW first, then use FTPiiU_everywhere version, not standard FTPiiU.

Like the guys above me i tried overwriting but i continue from the start...

Ps. I'm trying to move a EU usb save to internal fresh legit EU.

It won't let me copy the files. I can access everything fine but can't copy them from one folder to another, I get errors everytime.

Use Mocha, then use FTPiiU_everywhere version not the normal version.
I was using Mocha, otherwise I wouldn't even be able to access the files, lol. But thanks anyway.
I managed to copy the files but like everyone else replied, the game just starts a new game anyway.

Well, GG I guess, will have to re-download the EUR version to continue playing.
