Whenever i try the browser step because my gamepad screen is broken i hit cancel when it asks me to turn on the gamepad,
and then it asks me to insert a fat32 formatted sd card even though i know i have a fat32 sd card.
would please be so kind as to tell me why this is?

Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Followed this guide but it still won't work: https://wiiu.hacks.guide/#/mocha/indexiine/browser-modding

I ran the indexiine-installer, and rebooted my wii u several times, and have waited over a minute after opening the browser. It never launches the homebrew launcher automatically. I still have to tap the button for it to start.

Any help?

Do you have the homebrew launcher on the sd card?

You know, I'm curious about one thing...since CBHC works by editing system.xml to boot the modified DS game on system startup, couldn't this same method be used to boot the browser on system startup instead? It'd circumvent the requirement to pay $6 for an exploit...
not really, the system app that launches when the wii u turns on mounts the sdcard and some other stuff, if you boot directly to the browser it cant load the sdcard stuff (actually i believe it just crashes when the exploit is triggered), also iirc when you boot directly to the browser you cant quit to the menu.
Its not really "unsafe" to try this if you add a timer to the exploit launching process in the homepage, its just a pain in the ass to recover.

my last toughts about this was maybe instead of having an exploit payload that loads mocha/hblauncer from the sd, have a payload that is mocha itself when the exploit is triggered (this was the way the original browser exploit worked wayback (not with mocha)), but even then there are some routines that payload would have to do and the payload doesnt work if its too big(thats why the only thing it does is look for a file on the sd), rendering it kinda impossible.

I have the same problem. Installed indexiine using the wiiu.hacks.guide and it doesn't work. It only worked the first time I tried to open the browser. I didn't modify the SD card after that so all required files should still be there.

I haven't met a single person who actually has installed this without issue. The discord server was no help either since apparently nobody there used it when I asked. Very curious what's going on with indexiine and why it won't work.

The wiiu hacks guide is incomplete, i suggest you check the link i just updated on the first post of this thread, it works very consistently.

Also dont forget to enable quick start menu to launch the internet browser directly for a cbhc like experience

Do you mean the link in the first line? wiiu hacks guide uses indexiine installer too. i think i'll try your guide instead. But I don't know how to open the mii maker in the browser without exiting it.

Unfortunately indexiine fails if gamepad is not present.

Haxchi needs a gamepad too, out of the box. But, can be tricked to be gamepad-free, as described here
