    Hi, thanks for the reply. I didnt realise the gamepad had a sensor built in, thank you for the info. I paired a remote up and its seen in the home menu however again i couldn't click the load button in the homebrew launcher. I have now found the patched version for Wii U Pro controllers and gamepad and used that. I now have haxchi installed and working. Time for some reading and research into how to load up the wii with some stuff now. Thanks for your help :)

    Good to hear you got it working. ;)
    For hacking the vWii look for WUPhax but I guess you'll look up some guides nonetheless. Good luck.

    Hi everyone! I have a problem that even reading the whole thread I couldn't find anything similar, My wii u is on 5.5.3 and I use mocha through web exploit on loadiine.ovh and from one moment to another HBL stopped working entirely, it just remains frozen on the apps list, loud buzzing and no apps or animations visible at all. Making it so web exploit loads Mocha directly in order to open the channel version results in the same freeze. Is there any reason to it that I missed? I just don't know what it could be anymore.

    After not using my WiiU for a while and coming back to it, I found that any .elf app that I try to launch through the homebrew launcher (current 2.1) fails to launch and simply returns to the homebrew launcher. It looks like I can launch .rpx apps fine (retroarch cores), but not any of the .elf apps I used to launch without problems like tcpgecko, saviine or wup installer y mod. A lot of these apps don't seem to have rpx replacements. Any suggestions?

    Hello everyone. I hope you can help me. I'm trying to install some games on my Wii U. A year ago I succesfully installed coldboot haxchi and everything went fine. The problem is, that was a year ago, and now im trying to install some more games and it seems I don't have the files needed in the SD Card (I have the 2 ... When I try to open haxchi, it always says "-3". I have formatted the SD Card and nothing changes. I tried to download the same files from the tutorial I followed but they have been eliminated... I'm not sure if everything is fine within the "wii u" and the "install" files.

    You need to have the HBL on the SD card.
    Games go to
    SD:\install\gamename\[multiple files]
    and are installed with WUP Installer GX2.

    I believe -3 is the error code for "FSGetMountSource failed" which means that the console does not think an SD Card is inserted, or that it is not formatted correctly. I find that sometimes I need to remove and re-insert the SD card a few times before my console will recognise it.

    A trick I always use to find the source of SD card troubles is to open Mii Maker and try to save a picture of my Mii to the SD card - if there's a problem, Mii Maker will return an error message that may be more descriptive than "-3".

    I'm new to Wii U homebrew I installed Haxchi just fine I'm not using cold boot. How do I run homebrew from my SD card though ? What I mean I can only run things like RetroArch through the homebrew channel. I want to install Not64 how do I make them show up on my home menu etc. I think my console is on 5.5.3. When I installed homebrew launcher it open but nothing happens it goes back to homebrew channel.

    Im just confused looking at it, sorry xD

    I bought used one, so it has some hack i think....

    My Homebrew Launcher is a .elf file and it is outdated, I am currently using v1.4 could I replace it to update it with the .rpx file?
    I am not booting through cbhc I am using Haxchi.

    So is it impossible to launch Homebrew/Haxchi without a gamepad? I was having problems with my gamepad, which inexplicably fixed itself, about a week ago and when I tried to launch the CFW ticket thing you need for games, it said I needed to turn on the gamepad. That makes it seem like anything that requires a CFW would be unplayable without the gamepad.

    I believe there's a version that works without the gamepad, but you've gotta find it on the internet.
