    I can't release the source or work on it right now, sorry (my main computer is in another place)
    When I get back I can continue

    Your mom's basement.
    There's a bounty going on, so maybe you can submit that and try to win? That'd be neat if you won!

    That's the source code for the project:
    https://github.com/rw-r-r-0644/WiiU-FileManager

    Anyway I guess I'm just too lazy to finish it, right now at least..

    EDIT: I can try to finish it after school starts
    EDIT2: If you compile it, you can open a file/folder menu by long pressing it...iirc the delete function formats your sdcard because of a bug (didn't edit it in a long time) so don't use it...the other functions aren't implemented yet

    I don't always have internet connection. Besides, if I wanted to do that, I could just insert my sd card into a pc. The opposite that I'm asking.

    Extra steps that don't need to be there. Sure you can just use FTP on the 3DS to rename files, but you can do it without needing anything else since there's multiple apps to do so. It's a "Quality of Life" improvement as they say.

    i honestly doubt that will happen because the wii u modding community is dying off

    Just saying, you'd think the DSi modding community would be dead but a lot of 3DS modders started working on stuff for it. And that's years in the ground compared to the Wii U. Also there's the github that was posted with a WIP file explorer.

    If I'm on my Wii U and I realized I put a file in the wrong place, I don't want to open FTPii U, open FileZilla, check to make sure the IP hasn't changed, find the file, move the file, have an error happen, try again, then put my laptop away, exit FTPii U.

    Or open the File Explorer I would call SDii U, find the file, move the file, exit SDii U.

    Maybe half of the coding is done and uploaded, anyone could go finish it if they have enough coding knowledge.

    If you know, what are homebrew apps written in, Java? HTML? Python?
