    Hi, is there any way I can load backup games from a USB drive instead of an SD card? (Like the wii's USBloaderGX...)
    And if not, is there going to be sometime in the future?
    I have a PAL Wii U on 5.5.1, recently exploited (thank you whomever)

    No, currently Loadiine is only supporting SD. Sorry man.
    And I don't know if it'll be the case in the future :P

    :sad: Guess I'll have to get a new SD... All the spare SD I currently own are only 2-4GB...
    Thank you anyway! :D
    Edit: Guess the thread can be locked

    I dont think USB will ever happen because Wii U formats the USB in a certain way so files are inaccessible, and I don't think we can gain access to USB without it formatted like that. But you can do that with WiiFlow on vWii.

    Perhaps it will be possible to access a WiiU formatted USB drive via a homebrew filemanager and copy the extracted games to it.
