    Hi guys, I've been reading some of your tutorials and thanks to that I was able to install haxchi on my console and then use loadiine.
    I've read that now it's possible to use the dlc with the games. I really would like to play the new tracks of mario kart 8.
    can you please tell me how to add the dlc in the game?
    also, does anyone have a 100% unlocked and completed mario kart 8 game save?
    thanks

    @ziggystardust why use Loadiine? You'll have to have SSBB to play the latest update on MK8 with Loadiine plus you can't play online.

    Perfect. Now you just need to fire up WUP installer and install that game you downloaded from Wii U helper. No Loadiine needed. Loadiine is really an older method for launching games that we used before we had the WUP installer method

    sorry for late reply but I had to wait for a sd/usb adapter :D
    so now I have mario kart 8, the latest update and the dlc. I've used wiiU helper to move this content to the sd card.
    I've put inside the sd the wup installer gx2 1.10
    I launch it after opening haxchi and then the homebrew channel. when I try to install mario kart 8 it says it requires signature patch. how do I do that?

    Basically it's telling you that you need to run this on a CFW because the DLC is not legit.

    Your choices are:

    Sigpatched sysNAND - Use HaxChi or cold boot
    Mocha - just like above but you don't need HaxChi to run. You just have a couple of extra clicks each time you want to play.
    redNAND - Use HaxChi or HBL to load this up. Just like Mocha except it's an emulated nand using your SD.

    Personally I use CBHC to run sigpatched sysNAND on boot. Best option in my opinion but if you believe all the brick hype then you can get close to the same result with just HaxChi. Just one extra click if you don't cold boot.

    In any case I would make your next step getting Haxchi installed. It's needed if you want to cold boot to hacked wii u

    Hi,

    Sorry for jumping in on an old thread but I was wondering if somebody could help me.

    I've just modded a Wii u and I have haxchi installed. I've downloaded Mario kart from the usb helper and it installed just fine via wud installer.

    The next step would be to install the update ( the last one available, v64) and the dlc, but when I try to install the update it fails, the error is something like a missing file.

    Could you please help me understanding what I am doing wrong ? I tried the same process with other games and I had no issue.

    Thanks a lot
