    afaik, patching ios 80 enables playing games from sd card in the official manner, eshop games that is. personally, this is not something I did, because it's easier and better to use emunand and neek.

    Sorry, only realised after posting. Personally I’d avoid it if possible using options godreborn suggests.

    There is a patcher, but I haven’t used it myself:

    In terms of recovery, there are potential options but the best option is to avoid the risk if possible:

    Make sure to have a backup of everything both vWii and Wii U anyway.

    if possible, I'd get neek2o. it has more options than neek. neek you can make yourself, but neek2o requires leaked files, which can't be shared on here as they contain official code I believe. I have neek2o, and it works flawlessly. there are a few drawbacks like the wii u rebooting into wii u mode after exiting if the system is designed to return to usb loader gx or something. with usb loader gx, you can create an emunand and inject wads without a wad homebrew. both of those things are in features.

    I strongly suggest you use emunand. you're limited with the sd card. emunand can hold unlimited titles.
