    So, I tried to hack my wiiu but something went wrong. i had followed the instructions and was ready to go. i had went to the browser and went to wiiubru for the homebrew exploit, but it didn't work. my wiiu had crashed, so i restarted it. but when i did, all of my games read as invalid. can anyone help me?

    Are you using Fix94's fw if so you need to run that every time you want to play your games

    What do you mean by fix94's firmware?
    Just for more info, i don't have homebrew yet. what was described in op was my first attempt.

    you mean games installed to the system quit working or loadiine games on your sd quit working, if its a sd game problem then you should check your sd card for errors

    You need to take us through what you did step by step.

    Is your SD Card formatted to FAT32?
    What files and folders do you have on the SD Card?

    Nothing in the hack should affect your Disk Drive as you are running an exploit from the web browser only.

    Ok. first things first, i use an sd card for both my hacked wii, and my hacked 3ds, so if that is the problem then woops. ok so first i downloaded the homebrew channel, loadliine and a cheating software(forgot the name, all i remember is that the icon has doctor mario).
    i then made a folder called wiiu(ether that or came with homebrew) and put all of the apps that i listed on the sd card(the one that i mentioned. the size is 4 gigs if you're wondering).
    After that i put the sd card in the wiiu, ran browser, then went to wiiubru. when i got to the site, a video came up then the console froze
    I waited a bit and because nothing was happening, i restared my console. after that, the game i had in the wiiu (Smash) reade as an invalid disk.(it was working fine befor this.)

    If more info is needed, i tryed MK8 after and it worked fine but wouldn't update (dns) so i started it, quit it, went to settings to turn dns off, then when i went back it read as an invalid disk too. and then all other disks continued (except for wii games)

    As long as the apps you downloaded are in wiiu\apps\ on your SDCard and it is FAT32 Formatted everything should be fine. What firmware are you on on your WiiU?

    I still don't understand why your Disk Games aren't working though......

    WOW!! You have a hell of a lot of folders in there!!

    What's in the wiiu folder. I suspect the problem lies in your SDCard format though. It is recommended to have your SDCard in Fat32 64kb clusters.

    Thats all for the wiiu folder. also, while i know that its FAT32(3DS homebrew) i think my sd is 32 kb clusters.

    if you can, try reformatting with 64kb clusters and see if it works. I realise though you have a crap load of folders to copy off first though.
