    Trying to install eshop games with wupinstaller but it just seems to hang on "installing" and it doesn`t move from 0%.
    Anyone else have this problem??
    Only having this problem with eshop games, regular retail games install fine.

    Are you running haxchi or mocha before you Install them if not that is your problem as eshop games need haxchi or mocha to work.

    Yes haxchi

    EDIT.....and I`m assuming they can be installed on USB? or does it have to be NAND?

    No they will install to USB fine how do you have your haxchi set up does it automatically boot to haxchi cfw or does it load to the homebrew launcher automatically??

    No autoboot.
    Haxchi > HBL > wupinstaller

    Using HaxChi like that won't get you into CFW. You're just using it as an entry point for HBL.

    Change the config.txt in the HaxChi folder on your SD to say "default=sysmenu". Then reinstall HaxChi over the top of itself to apply the change.

    Now when you tap HaxChi you're in CFW.

    Now you have to find a way into HBL. You can setup HaxChi so you hold B to get into HBL the same way you did with config.txt above. I prefer to install the HBL channel (just like your eshop games you'll have to first tap HaxChi so you're in CFW). But you at least have to get in there once after being in CFW to install the HBL channel. Just launch HBL from loadiine.ovh and then WUP Installer GX2 to install the HBL channel (but remember tap HaxChi 1st)

    Before trying to install anything that requires CFW check first to make sure that you're in HaxChi CFW by looking at your Wii U settings. It should say 99.99.99 as your version number

    I already have the config.txt as default=sysmenu.
    I already have the HBL Channel installed.
    It already shows 99.99.99.
    and FYI I`m getting the eshop games via usbhelper

    It's one thing to have "default=sysmenu" in the config.txt on your sd card but DID YOU reinstall haxchi over your current haxchi so it can take the new settings
    because just changing the default in the config txt won't do anything.

    Did you miss the fact the op said sys menu is showing firmware 99.99.99 which means haxchi has been set up right and the cfw is running so obviously he has reinstalled it already with the correct cfg.txt

    Don`t remember reading any tutorial that Haxchi had to be installed twice ("reinstall Haxchi over the current Haxchi"????) Isn`t changing the config.txt prior to installing Haxchi part of the correct process/procedure?
    When it shows firmware version 99.99.99....doesn`t that mean Haxchi CFW is installed?
    If I can get into the Homebrew channel.....doesn`t that mean Haxchi CFW is installed?

    True but you should read everything correctly and make sure you know what you are talking about before giving advice or you run the risk of looking like an idiot lol.

    Your really not getting it are you lol you are on a site where a lot of technical things are discussed and giving wrong information can lead to bricks or other fuck ups you really need to read everything correctly and know what you are talking about before replying and make sure you are giving correct information. But sorry for upsetting you by calling you an idiot.

    Did I say that it was to do with haxchi?? No I said in general you have to give good advice before commenting. And if I'm not here to help why have I being trying to help the op then hmm. I gave you friendly advice in how to use the site by telling you to always give correct advice and to read everything correctly but if you don't want to listen that's cool. You will soon learn how this site operates from others even without my help lol. If you can't take constructive criticism and if you are offended by being called an idiot this site really is not for you sorry because people here will call you a whole lot worse than that.

    You are correct, I almost began to second guess myself...like I did something wrong? etc...

    BUT back to my issue.....this is my first attempt to install eshop games, thats why it was odd that they would not install...it just hangs/freezes at 0% installling, I have to press the home button to get me back out to the system menu.

    UPDATE......
    Now nothing will install to USB....retail games, eshop, dlc, updates, etc..
    Installing to NAND works....then I can move to USB via data management copy/move

    EDIT....whats the difference between wupinstaller and the GX version?
