    Hello! In this guide i'm going to tell you how to install the Homebrew channel onto your Wii U.
    Some notes: The Homebrew channel isn't a 'channel' because you have to re-launch the exploit every time. Okay lets get started.

    Requirements: 2GB or more SD Card - Wii U - PC or Phone with internet and downloading capabilities.

    1. Download the Homebrew launcher from here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/homebrew-launcher-for-wiiu.416905/ I would suggest you get the Homebrew version and not the channel version because you need redNAND. Get the latest release (1.4)

    2. Plug your SD Card in and extract the folder 'wiiu' to the root (Beginning) of your SD Card.

    3. Make sure your Wii U is either turned off or on the home menu. Plug the SD Card in.

    4. Go to www.wiiubru.com/go on your Wii U's web browser

    5. Wait a few seconds.

    6. Ta Da! Your on the Homebrew launcher.

    pointless thread.
    We have way better guides that go over everything wii u homebrew and we have way better hacks. The only reason to use this is to install Haxchi.

    Its fine and I like that but I would recommend writing guides that haven't been written ten times on this site.
