    Hi guys,

    Just bought a WiiU that's running Haxchi. I can play my backup games without starting haxchi first, I can just run them once they are installed on the USB drive.

    I am installing WiiU games using WUP Installer Method and it's working fine.

    I tried to install some DLC like Mario Kart tracks, but it says CFW required. How can I know if a CFW was installed on my console, I bought it already configured with Haxchi but that's all I know.

    Can I go to the Nintendo store on my WiiU, buy some DLC and use them with my games being installed on a USB drive?

    What about Wii games, do I need something else to play them?

    Thanks!

    You must be in CFW environment before installing DLC.
    If you got Wii U with Haxchi then check if SDCard has config.txt file in sdcard://haxchi
    If it doesn't, then update it. [Newest version is 2.5u2 i suggest downloading Haxchi from PC to SDCard so you can already edit config.txt]
    Insert your SDCard into your PC and locate haxchi folder in SDCard.
    Edit it like this
    config.txt

    For Wii games, you need to homebrew your vWii [I can't help you with that because i didn't touch my vWii since i bought it (it = Wii U)]
    You can install vWii VC games but some will not run.

    Thank!
    Ok, so I guess I have Haxchi but I am not booting into CFW by default. Gonna check my SDCard when I go home, thanks for the help!
