    Introduction:

    Recently just purchased a wii u to play online and offline with any sort of mod. My Ultimate goal is playing games safely and being able to download games easilly.

    Main Question:
    Which SD card is compatible or good for Loadline?
    https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Ultr...c&ie=UTF8&qid=1481542327&sr=1-1&keywords=sdhc

    https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Ultr...c&ie=UTF8&qid=1481542327&sr=1-2&keywords=sdhc

    These need to be formatted to Fat32 and modified ect?

    Difference Between WII U USB Helper , FunkwiiU , vWii
    Which one is best for installing quick and easy? Safely will be a nice addition too.

    Difference Between Loadline and WUP installer in the Wii U

    In the Hebrew channel.which one is safer to use for online us. What is the main differences that one provides over the other. Are they just install and then play. Or do i need to setup key title's or something?

    Kernel Exploit , Redsnand, Softmod

    Im leaning toward's Kernel Exploit more(FilFlam's) but what can i consider about the other's. Can any of em be removed in the future? Working at the momment

    SD Card or USB:

    To install games from the Hebrew channel, is usb or an SDHC card like the one above better and more reliable to install on.

    What is vWii?

    Also i would like details about NUUPatcher and the DNS servers.

    So ultimately i want to be able to install and play games either from WUP installer or Loadline. Which is the most convenient for me since im a total noob when wii u but not totally on the pc as i got some knowledge there. Safest for online , and easiest to install. let me know down below thank you so much <3

    If you want to play online, I recommend using the Brazilian USB method instead of Loadiine. But both of your SD cards look fine.

    Yes, the SD card needs to be formatted to FAT32. You can do that with fat32formatter, or its GUI version.


    Wii U USB Helper and FunKiiU seem to be the same thing, except Wii U USB Helper has a GUI. So, use that, I guess. vWii isn't similar at all to the two other programs, more on it later.

    Loadiine is offline, while the USB method is online. You will need to get title keys for the USB method, yes.

    They can all be removed in the future, if you want. RedNAND is like a second Wii U, except it stores everything on your SD card, so if you break it, you can just wipe your SD card. The kernel exploit doesn't allow much, but it is definitely the safest. All of these (RedNAND, the kernel exploit, etc.) are softmods.

    A USB is probably more reliable, from my personal experience. It may need a USB Y cable, though.

    vWii is the Wii U's virtual Wii, for playing the old Wii games. It's like a Wii inside the Wii U; it can be hacked, too. NUU-Patcher lets you temporarily access game updates and the eShop when you have a DNS server blocking them, to prevent updating the Wii U. You do not want to update your Wii U, as that would remove your hacks.

    It's called the Homebrew Channel, not the Hebrew Channel.

    EDIT:
    You don't need a signature patch; not right now, at least. All it does is let you install the Homebrew Channel directly to your homescreen, which can already be done with Haxchi. When a game has an update, run NUU-Patcher and update the game like normal. You can also purchase DLC when in NUU-Patcher mode, too. You can, however, pirate DLC any time...

    There has been a GUI for FunKiiU for some time now. https://gbatemp.net/threads/a-simple-gui-for-funkiiu-funkii-ui.446853/ my opinion is biased because I wrote it but I sure do like it lol. Also, WiiuUSBHelper does a few more things that I don't atm. Mine is a bit more minimalistic in terms of design and I don't have a copy to sdcard feature quite yet but will be added soon.

    Ah, sorry. I'm not exactly up to the times with that stuff (most of the time, I'm worrying if what I do might brick my Wii U :P ). Thanks for correcting me.

    One question , So basecally Haxtachi is the best at the momment? After seting up the DNS server that Kafluke provided i go into eshop and download one of those games listed. i have 20$ in my eshop account. But if i set up the DNS server, wouldn't i lost acess to the eshop. Unless i download the one of the games first then setup the DNS. Also Haxchi can only be done with a Sd card correct? No USB? Also for the hebrew launcher link aka https://github.com/dimok789/homebrew_launcher/releases . theres only channel and rpx which you mention on your guide those aren't the ones you download so which one is it? then is it homebrew 1.4 launcher zip ?

    Also wiiubru/go we visit it on our wii while we have the sd card in with our homebrew launcher and haxchi files installed.

    after doing the steps in wiiubru/go haxchi will be activated fully and running. these small game from the list we have to purchase has to be installed in the nand? what is that? system storage or sd card? But after Haxticahi is running i can acess the eshop to download this game? doesnt the DNS block that. After this is sorted out i go the loadline link and continue from there. Now from there on i can install game with loadline gx2 into my sd card but will only let me play offline correct? I can play online with the brazilian method which install games to internal memory or usb? not MEMORY. Is there a complete Disc Tik Trick (Brazilian method). Also I dont mind not having dlc to play online but will SIGPATCHED sysNAND Make my life easier? like less hassle. Because idk how to get ticket's and don't know if Is easy.

    So correct me if im wrong;
    I will need regardless A sd card c:
    So also i will need a USB for Brazilian method.

    Step 1:
    Setup DNS

    Step 2:

    Install Haxchi and Hebrew Launcher on SDCard and insert on my wii

    Step 3:

    go to wiiubru.com/go

    Step 4:

    Im prettey sure Hebrew launcher is ready now , IDK if i can acess eshop from this step and download game but if i can , i acess the shop and download one of the games in the list

    step 5:
    Installing Disc Tik Trick or SIGPATCHED sysNAND. Dont know which one is more worth it ? I do not know about ticket's or signatures or any of that. if Sysnad is worth it and way easier to download and play games, ill get it.

    Step 6:

    Download games to my SDCard. IDK if i download with FunkWiiU or Wii U USB helper :/. I download full WUP file's into the apps folder in my sdcard? or does FunkWiiU/ Wii U USB helper install them in the right place.

    Step 7:

    Go into Homebrew Launcher and acess the WUP installer or is there a certain thing to do with the Brazilian method. thank you so much for answering this c:

    Wow that's a lot of questions. I'm going to keep editing this post as I update and answer each question. I'm going to number them so you can follow along.

    1. Good point. I should update the guide at the start of the Haxchi portion to let users know that they will either need to temporarily disable blocking to get to the eshop or use NNU patcher. Thanks for the heads up.

    2. Yes only SD when installing haxchi. Once installed you can use homebrew that accesses USB just fine.

    3. Yes you will look under the 1.4 section. I tried to be a bit ambiguous here because it won't always be 1.4. It will get updated to a new number. I was just trying to say, get a release not the RPX/ Channel version

    4. wiiubru/go doesn't require anything to be installed on the SD or the system. You can use it to get HBL, Loadiine or even latest haxchi. So in theory you could just go there to get all the files that you will need. You will still need to get the SD files from the haxchi github though.

    5. Here are the steps I would follow:

    Step 1. Download and install one of the games from eshop for haxchi
    Step 2. Setup blocking
    Step 3. Follow the instructions for installing Haxchi
    Step 4. Find and follow a guide for setting up sigpatched sysNAND
    Step 5. Use DTT or Brazilian Method or whatever the hell you want to call it these days to install to USB or internal memory.

    Wait I only Install Haxchi on my sd card. then i go to the wiiubru.com/go and it will install Hebrew Launcher 1.4 Automatically so i can skip that step? As long as i have Haxchi files in my SD before going in the site im good. Also after everything setup how will i go on about installing games? For example i want Redsnad now and now that Haxchi is all setup ? i use FunkiWiiU or something

    You don't need to have haxchi before going to wiiubru/go. That in the first part of the Haxchi section. Get haxchi first then read the redNAND section

    What do you mean it "isn't doing anything" with your SD card? Is it not recognizing it? Or something else?

    That's what it's supposed to do. What matters is whether or not you can load any executables off of it (like the Homebrew Launcher).
