    Your mom's basement.
    I would like to be able to view and edit the contents of my SD Card on my Wii U, but it seems that I have to go into vWii via Wiiexplorer to do this. Is there a homebrew app that's like that, but in Wii U mode?

    I would also love to see that for Wii U, being able to simply make basic functions like copy, paste, cut, delete, rename would do it for me.

    Is been requested several times, even by me, but no dice. The good benefit for it would be installing mods into the digital games easily without needing to download the full game, extract repack like the Tokyo mirage sessions game. (I know cause i did it to get the game to work on my system) So if i had used FTPIIU everywhere to just do so, it would take long to copy files from sd to internal memory. So yes i want this.

    You can use ftpii u and browse with your mobile phone. Maybe thats also the reason why there is no Xplore U yet.

    There is one, but it only works on Mocha CFW. Maybe I'll try and update it to work with every CFW and release it.

    Let's just say, if I was to theoretically start working on something like this on the weekend, what you you think it would be called? Give me inspiration!

    Looks neat, the Wii U is in a huge need of a basic File Browser of some sort to at least delete files from the SD without having to put the Sd everytime in a PC to do so.

    I made a thread about this a while ago, because I was too lazy to always take my sd card out and put it in my PC.

    Maybe we should start a bounty source, so there is more incentive :P
    BTW the one in the pic has a pretty gui it's a shame it was abandoned (?)
