    Dusted off the Wii U to try the new Zelda game.

    Followed this guide: https://wiiu.guide/get-started

    Finalizing the Haxchi install as we speak. Downloaded a compatible DSV game to be able to load with ease.

    Trying to figure out how to install Zelda onto my Wii U. I don't play on playing any other games at the moment just this one. I have a 64 GB SDXC card. I have a portable USB drive but would prefer not to use that if I can avoid it.

    Is it possible to install the game from my SD card onto internal memory of system?

    For Zelda I currently have a:

    sxs-zbow.key
    sxs-zbow.wud

    These are the two files I have. What do I need to get these installed?

    Wuds cannot be installed without converting them first to make them installable it's much easier just to use a program like wiiu USB download helper and download botw again. It will download it in an installable format you just copy it to yours sd card then switch on the WiiU load the homebrew launcher then use wup installer y mod to install the game to sysnand

    yes, u need to decrypt the game first, u can do so with uwizard. the key file u have is probably the decryption key. it will extract the content for use. u'll need to convert it to an installable format though. there's an app (forgot the name of) that can do this. like the member above said, it's much easier just to download the game again with nus. u can use uwizard as well for this. u just need the content id.

    Make sure to atleast make frequent backups using Saviine in case if redNAND corrupts.

    The OP doesn't even need cfw to install botw, it has a legit tik for both the game and update. Only reason for cfw with botw is for the dlc.
    This is to prevent the lost of saves do to redNANDs unstableness

    Yes but the op does not have rednand so the reply had zero meaning to the op
