    Hello can someone explain to me how modding on the Wii U works i am a completely lost,IL start from the beginning after beating the main story Xenoblade Chronicles X I've been searching online for a way to easily get money,best gear, high level stuff you get the idea when i found this post [here] showcasing some kinda Xenoblade Chronicles X Game modifier at first i thought it was a simple Save Modifier but while looking through the instructions i found myself completely lost most of the instructions involve using this program with some others one like loadiine and pygecko i have know idea what they are but i am guessing there some kinda essential homebrew program used that most Mods rely on,Can someone give me full guide for a newcomer on how to install them so i use XCXgecko i am confused on how to do the whole thing my modding skills are very basic i have soft modded my Wii a while back and i have used a few save editors and Action replay codes before i am not sure if it is done the same way or done completely different so i would appreciate it if somebody could help me out and give me clear instructions from the ground up so i wont mess up my Wii U or something. thank you for your time consideration

    1.) Download the latest release of XCXgecko:
    https://github.com/mimicax/XCXGecko/releases
    2.) Follow this guide to get the kernel exploit up and running (assuming your firmware version is 5.5.0/5.5.1):
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...server-loadiine-homebrew-launcher-etc.424948/
    3.) Run the kernel exploit, followed by pyGecko (itself or some variant is included in the kernel exploit), and finally launch the game (XCX) on your Wii U. From here, load your save and run the program I linked on your PC.
    4.) Find a tutorial on cheat codes (I don't use them, and therefore don't know anything about them).

    1.) Everything is temporary, and rendered unusable after restarting your system.
    2.) The things that load from an SD card can only be loaded from an SD card; I.E., no USB support.

    Read the stickies. And you can't use USB right now.
