    Glorious day! my father who only bought the wii U to play the two mario titles that came out finally lent it to me to try my hacking skills.

    Plugged it, updated it to 5.51, tried to launch loadiine from the browser with a few folders installed on the root of the sd card. from the zip file called WiiU 5.5.1 - Permanent Full Hack Haxchi + CBHC - MyPizzaTube.com.zip
    Cool! it seems to work. so far, what next?
    There seemed to be the loadiine folder missing in the app section so i searched and found it and put in in.

    I would like to play Paper Mario Color Splash, i am currently putting it on the root of the sd card in a folder i called games.

    Do you think it will work? am i missing a step? is there still wbfs conversion needed here, or its best to use usb drives?

    If i can play this game and Zelda Breath of the wild, my next step will be to play eshop titles like, axiom verge and such, and probably next would be to own the wii/gamecube/emulation portion of it if possible in hd... because i tried an official wii game and so far the graphics as bad looking as the old wii with no graphics options in the wii emulation menu.

    Lend me your basic april 2017 knowledge as a first day hacker!

    Why not install it to NAND memory? It will eliminate endless crashes and useless Loadiine.
    Also only grab current Haxchi from FIX94 Github page, not from Youtube videos.
    Newest Haxchi Version: 2.5u2, Newest CBHC Version: 1.6
    Back up your NAND using NAND Dumper before installing CBHC.


    It's impossible to play BotW with Loadiine unless you want to experience freezes, white screen and overall instability, install it to NAND or USB instead.
    If you need more, then i suggest checking Brazilian Method in my guide, it should help.

    hum... i see. can nand be on a 128gb sd card i used on my old wii for all games to be playable without a hdd?
    And what is Haxchi? i dont have a nintendo eshop account... my father has one but i would not want to have him billed or banned from anything...

    You need to do some reading to understand what you're doing. Never just blindly follow YouTube guide. Read over the noob guide in the stickys. It explains what you need to know

    As much as I loved it back then, I can't recommend Loadiine anymore. Please don't go the SD way and use the Brasilian method.

    Anything is possible if you believe in yourself.

    What you are describing is possible if you google better.

    If you want to earn your Dad's respect, then ditch Loadiine, redNAND and other outdated methods.
    Either use my guide or Kafluke's. We both explain most of stuff.
    Also @Kafluke feel free to copy info i collected in NAND Dumping section :3

    White Wii U = 8GB Flash Memory
    Black Wii U = 32GB Flash Memory [22GB free]
    Yeah, you can check in Settings -> Data Management.

    Don't look at Loadiine at all, just download games using Wii U USB Helper and install them using Wup Installer GX2/Mod Y to NAND or USB. [Wii U USB Helper has automatic Copy to SD feature]

    Loadiine is only useful for small VC games.

    Now thats my kind of answer! I'll look into it

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    From a specific source for both? I am already using a program called uTikdownloadhelper, and since i tried Wii U USB Helper i got from an official .com site, all i get from it is a message saying please wait while the installer updates your application.
