    Hi im currently running 5.5.1 and i got through the video tutorial for using 5.5.x kernel exploit and illuminati says ok i restart the browser and it goes to step 2 but it say sd card could not be mounted. I check and i am using fat32 and have tried different clusters. Please help

    have you tried putting the sd card after the kernel exploit out of the wii u and putting it back in? That works for me.

    Put the homebrew launcher on your SD and then use WiiuBru.com. It launches the kernel exploit and homebrew launcher at the same time. Always works for me.

    So when it says SD card not mounted just take it out and put it back in? I tried to use wiibru but it just freezes I put the home brew launcher in the right place I believe wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher

    Wow, my thread was actually useful. EaseUS was best for me when formating a SD thats 64GB or higher to FAT32. None of that command prompt crap which can take 15 minutes just to do. EaseUS does it in 15 seconds. lol
