    I mean, we all know why :)
    All I have done so far on my console is loadiine and install haxchi.
    Is there a way to make my console region free with noob-friendly tutorial?
    I never really touched wii u hacking scene

    thanks

    You have Haxchi so you are region free already.

    then all i have to do is install the game with WUPinstaller and I'll be able to play it?
    thats all?
    I mean, it will convert the game to US version and all?
    or do i need to do something before?
    Like launching haxchi on console launch before playing it?

    You need to run haxchi each time you want to play out if region games it's that simple just install Zelda like you would any other game run haxchi and the load Zelda.

    wait wait wait
    how do i run haxchi and load zelda?
    I mean, when I run haxchi, it gets me to homebrew launcher, ok?
    so what do i do then? just exit it, go back to home menu and launch the game?

    Start haxchi and immediately press the b button and keep it held down you will then be booted to region free sysnand instead of homebrew launcher select Zelda and play it

    Yes, run haxchi, or mocha cfw. The reason why you load homebrew launcher is your config file you had when installing haxchi. If you modify it to do something different, re install haxchi again, then you can change it.

    For example, i have Mocha CFW auto boot when loading haxchi, and hold a button to load homebrew, X button to load VWII homebrew, and y for WUP Installer Y mod.

    I think to be clear, put a config.txt file in the folder named "Haxchi" Here is a example txt file to use. Open it and you can see how the basic structure works. Just edit the line that has "Default" (That what will load when no buttons is pressed during haxchi boot.) You can download mocha cfw and have it load by default just specify the path where the mocha cfw elf is placed. (at least how i did it)

    Then load haxchi and you have region free. (ONLY WORKS FOR ANYTHING NOT LEGIT, virtual console/ eshop only games/ Out of region games.) But you can also play disc with no restriction to region as well.

    Error: install error code 0xFFFBF442
    Verify WUP files are correct & complete. DLC/E-shop require Sig

    That error code is far from unknown.
    The update has a fake ticket. Do the Haxchi hold-b thing that @Marko76 told you, then reinstall the update.

    Also why aren't you using latest wup installer GX? It even has a channel you can install once you launch it from HBL
