    Can you tell me how? I also use Mocha. I haven't seen any guide that explain the use of both mocha and haxchi and that guarantees that you won't brick your console, can you tell me how, thanks.

    That's because Mocha is not dangerous, Haxchi is not dangerous, what you may do with them could be (and you can brick even without a cfw)

    Just stick to installing games, their updates, and dlc from trusted sources and you won't brick
    (Most versions of wupinstaller block installing system titles anyway)
    And avoid editing files with ftpiiu-everywhere without knowing what you're doing

    That is all



    To install titles with wupinstaller y-mod or wupinstaller gx2, create an "install" folder in the root of the SD, create inside "install" folders named after the titles (letters and numbers only, no accents or symbols), copy the contents (*.app, *.h3, title.tik, etc) to those folders, insert SD in console, and use those installers

    If you are installing to the external hdd you have zero chance of a brick because you are not writing anything to the wiiu it's all going to the hdd.

    Thanks for the answer. If something went wrong, my games saved on the hdd (the original one) have to be erased?
