If I buy a DS game for Haxchi, do I need to rebuy it if I wanted Haxchi on another Wii U?

    I have two Wii U's in the house. I own mine and my cousin has one. I was wondering if I have to rebuy a DS game if I wanted CFW on more than one Wii U's. Ty!

    Really? It's not like every other platforms where the game is saved on my account and I can just simply download it again?

    Well that sucks. And just like that, Wii U stuff gets even more complicated. Like adding CFW to platforms is kinda of a hobby of mine and it's fun but so far Wii U is the one giving me the most headache with non straight forward methods of having permanent hacks (without having to pay) and backups. No simple drag & drop, no ISO's, having SD card to install on to another storage device (which takes forever), etc... the scene for Wii U is a big oof. I wish it was more simple like the others.

    Does it matter ?
    Isn't that only for account made before 2014 or something like that ?

    Brain age is not free anymore and it was maybe 2 years ago for a week.

    I don't know why you complain spending 5 bucks.
    You don't have to use it. You can also use the web based exploit. Also if you don't use dlcs you can just play your installed games as long as they have a valid cert.

    I don't mind spending the $5. It's just my cousin with the Wii U and maybe my friends as well want me to CFW but don't wanna dish out $5 for it. It just sucks that the games are only tied to one console. Like I said before, Wii U stuff just makes minor things very complicated.
