    I'm pretty experienced in 3ds modding, I've had my fun with it and now I've decided to move on to modding my wiiu as well! I have black 32GB console and I have access to the homebrew channel and loadiine and all that good stuff, but I've heard that a new IOSu kernel exploit was released and that you're now able to run custom firmware on your wiiu with the ability to install homebrew and games straight to the sysNAND. Since I'm still a little inexperienced in wiiu hacking I thought I would ask you (the community) for helpful websites, guides, links, and downloads to help get me started. Any response is appreciated!:D

    Those stickys are preatty outdated.Here's some rad new stuff.
    Basicly install the homebrew store from here https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-homebrew-app-store-for-wiiu.433275/ that will allow you to install everything
    Heres a new pc application to Backup your games https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wii-u-usb-helper-a-small-eshop-for-windows.446565/ make a install folder on the sd root on out the files there and launch this https://gbatemp.net/threads/wupinstaller-y-mod-with-mulitple-install-folders.445907/ to install them(When not running cfw you can only install legit games)
    This cfw (launch the application in homebrew)http://gbatemp.net/threads/mocha-cfw-the-sweet-chocolate-to-your-latte.452940/page-9#post-6921895 if you want to install not legit games
    You can also install haxchi and cold boot haxchi to get into homebrew quicker and basicly install a thing like a9lh http://gbatemp.net/threads/cbhc-v1-4-coldboot-haxchi-cfw.452615/page-14#post-6916928
    And you can get retroarch using the homebrew store!

    This is a good way to get the updated ways of running homebrew.

    Gambia, The
    first of all this video is bullshit it works to install but it dosent tell you that CBHC comes with its own firmware so if you Cooldboot
    mocha without rednand it will crash alot in sysnand since CBHC comes with its own custom firmware and it will mess together only use cooldboot mocha if you want to use rednand.

    here is how to install a homebrew launcher channel https://gbatemp.net/threads/homebrew-launcher-for-wiiu.416905/

    Why would you need that when you could just launch the ds vc game you need for haxchi on the homemenu to acsees homebrew?I found the video made by the same guy but with haxchi cfw if you want to do that.

    well coolboot just boots directly into a cfw from a powered down console thats more comfortable
    you can launch homebrew launcher as a normal wii u channel after that
    its just way more comfortable if you brick youre console for any reason there is a chance that cooldboot can still boot youre homebrew and you may be able to recover stuff

    Thats my biggest gripe with coldboot haxchi. It sounds like a nice way to brick by just forgetting to turn on a dns and acidently updating.
