    as the title says, is there some quick way to see if a game has permission to use sd card? perhapse something in the IMG dump files?

    AFAIK, the SD card is only for compatibility with vWii. I don't think any WiiU software actually takes advantage of it.

    You can see it in the cos.xml:
    if permissions->UHS (value & 0x00000000000B0000) the app has SD access

    thanks, thats a quick way, the 2 games have no 0x00000000000B0000 value in the code\cos.xml so i guess that they dont have access.

    FYI the only four known Wii U apps that have access to the SD Card are:
    • Mii Maker
    • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
    • Art Atelier
    • KaraokeU

    USB has multiple APIs, it's using HID, we need UHS to access storage which MCP locks access to

    I thought to read/write NFC tags, HID permission was not enough,
