    Since the WiiU kernel exploits for 5.3.2 and others are already out, mind as well make a tutorial on how to use them!

    Take notice, though. Running these does not void your warranty (in a way, none of them are permanent, but I'm unsure of this.)

    And if you want to continue using hacks, I will recommend you to block updates with OpenDNS, for a tutorial click on this.

    Step 1 - Downloads
    First thing you have to do are download the kernel exploits.
    Download a ZIP of kernel exploits here:
    http://wiiu.us.to/kexploits.zip
    If your browser goes "omg malware", don't blame it. It's not going to harm your computer in any way, and if you refuse to download it even though it will do nothing to your computer, you can do whatever you wish. If you want to hack your WiiU, proceed to download and make an exception with your virus/malware detector on the ZIP.


    Open up the ZIP you just downloaded. There are multiple files that start with payload and index.html, frame.html. The payloads are for your WiiU version number. For example:
    • payload532.html -> 5.3.2 Kernel Exploit
    • payload500.html -> 5.0.0 Kernel Exploit
    • payload410.html -> 4.1.0 Kernel Exploit
    • payload300.html -> 3.0.0 Kernel Exploit
    • frame.html -> Needed for all of the exploits, except for 5.3.2.
    • index.html -> The file literally nobody should care about.
    Step 2 - Preparing your hosting environment
    Next up is preparing to host the kernel exploit on a localhost, or your own server. You can use a DNS that you've registered (http://blahblah.com/payload532.html) or your localhost (http://10.0.0.11/payload532.html, or whatever your localhost IP is.)

    If you do not know how to set up a localhost, try something like Xampp to host your files.

    Step 3 - Running the exploits
    The next part is fairly simple. You open up the internet browser on your WiiU, and you open up the URL bar and navigate to where the exploit lies. (You can add as a bookmark to save time.) If it's successful, it will reopen the pause menu. If it fails, it will do the following:

    • Freezes
    • Black Screen
    • Black screen with "Race attack failed :(" on it
    • Black screen with "Failed to find DRVA or DRVHAX"
    If it does fail, keep trying. It will eventually work.

    A few things I did to make it work better:
    • Once a failure occurs, hardreset the WiiU. Then do a manual reset (quickly pushing the button to turn it off)
    • Keep tabs open with Google (sometimes, I doubt this helps)
    • When the kernel exploit works, refrain from turning it off, or crashing the WiiU.
    Now take notice, this exploit is not the most reliable. Use it wisely.

    If you have any questions, please ask below. Any improvements, can be posted here too. :)

    It is worth noting that "Failed to find DRVA or DRVHAX", while uncommon, may occur too.

    This one seems to be working for me!
    Well, how do I proceed when I want to connect to TCPGecko?
    When I run the exploit with the webbrowser it freezes and sends me back to the wii u menu. When I start a game now TCPGecko can't connect. I have checked out the router to get my Wii U's ip address and I can ping it through cmd.
    When I open the web browser while a game is running the console just freezes.

    To run TCPGecko, the exploit has to be ran twice.

    You need to run this exploit, then the TCPGecko installer (which is not in handy HTML form, unless MrRean added it).

    Soon. The source is not on GitHub, but once it is I will provide a tutorial. :)

    Where can I find this installer?
    And I can't run the exploit twice. It always freezes without blackscreen on the second time

    Will this exploit work on version 5.3.1?

    Yes, you can't run the kernel exploit twice. You run the kernel exploit once, and then an app that uses it (TCPGecko or Cafiine installer) second.

    MrEvil? Hi. And does that even exist? If so you can try the 5.3.2 payload

    5.3.1 is not officially supported, but you may get lucky and find that it works fine. If not, just use a game like Splatoon or Mario Party 10 (?) to update to 5.3.2.

    Preferably Splatoon as MP10 sucks. :D

    These installers are not released yet?

    They're not necessarily public, or easy to find. Once we contact Chadderz, there will be proper releases.

    I'm looking forward to one for 5.4.0. Fortunately, it didn't download the 5.5.0 update yet so I'm in the clear.

    I'll have to double check the web filter and see that I block the servers to disable automatic updating. Don't want to have my system update on me by accident.

    Edit: Blocked the update, my system is totally unaware of it, and still grants me online access. I cannot complain about this.
