    haxchi is a forwarder AND firmware patcher, it lets you launch homebrew without going into homebrew launcher if you press a button instead of patching the firmware's signature check function.
    set the path to the homebrew you want to launch in haxchi's config.txt, assign that path to a controller's button, and reinstall haxchi to put that config.txt file on your console.

    now when you launch haxchi and keep the assigned button pressed, it will launch the designated homebrew.
    If you want to launch Mocha, set a path to it
    you can even have different mocha version assigned to different buttons, but Mocha is useful only if you need redNAND or want FAT32 USB beta support, OR need WUP server instead of ftpiiu everywhere to access file system.


    CBHC has the same thing, but without config.txt file (hardcoded path, you can't put it elsewhere than the expected path), it's hardcoded to either launch Mocha, HBL, vWii, or by default patch sysmenu.

    Haxchi is simply a loader with its own built-in CFW (which has some limitations but it boots faster).

    has anyone ever used SEEPROM redirection feature to unlink RedNand and SysNand in order to avoid reinstalling USB games under RedNand ?

    How does one install games using Mocha with the FAT32 support?
    I basically want to use the same HDD I use for Wii/NGC games for installed games on Wii U as well.

    u have to install the games to a wii u formatted drive, then copy the files over to the fat32 drive. a major pita, and not worth it imo.

    u could alternatively decrypt downloaded games' contents then place them on the fat32 drive. it might save some time, but the location must be exact. decrypted content will just have the code, content, and meta folders without the folders that would be located on a wii u formatted drive. the problem is the metadata indexer. it records the location of games/apps at the time of installation. I don't know how much work has been done to reverse engineer it, but not enough at this present state. and, yeah, it sucks. if u have to have a wii u formatted drive just to install the games to that indexer, it kinda defeats the purpose of using a fat32 one. another possibility is to use one of those wii u hdd apps to grab the content, then transfer it over. essentially, u have that method, decrypting games' content method, or the ftpiiueverywhere method. there may be others, but that's all I can think of atm.

    even if you extract the game to FAT32 manually, you'll still have to install it once on WiiU with WUP installer (then delete it) to register the ticket.
    I made a quick guide (in my blog, there's a link at the bottom : how to use multiple HDD with wiiu, there's a part which explain this)

    edit:
    now I have time to find and provide the link, here it is:
    https://gbatemp.net/posts/7216091

    It's not fully "noob proof" as I provided only the steps, not the tools or links.
    It's not hard to understand if you are used to WiiU homebrew.

    is the ticket the metadata indexer itself? I heard the file responsible for this was on the root of the slc which isn't where ticket information is stored.

    I don't think the ticket alone is enough, or copying the ticket manually to the right folder would be enough.
    someone said he will test, but I don't know if he reported it, maybe I missed his post.

    I think putting the ticket in the folder is not enough because you need the console to "index" the game, like you said. mark it as officially owned or bought.
    On wii, there was a file where all the launchable titleID was stored, and the tickets were in another folder.
    On wii, we found how to do it using a homebrew, I don't know if it's known how to do the same on WiiU. if it's possible, we could make a "wup installer" homebrew, unpacking, copying files and registering the game using the IOSU instead of the official WUP function.

    Am I the only one who runs CBHC with Mocha with the primary purpose of not having FTPiiU Everywhere running in the background all the time?
    (it also runs better with a few homebrew apps I run sporadically, but the first point is my primary reasoning behind my setup - I like not having filesystems open remotely unless I need them to be. Least privilege and all that.)

    CBHC has ftpiiu running all the time? never knew you didn't have to run ftpiiu homebrew to access the NAND from ftp.

    if you talk about the privilege to access NAND, then Mocha has it too. in fact Mocha had it first, and CBHC added it (using a different method, but it has it)

    Mocha is actually the one that has something constantly running/listening (wupserver), it requires no ID/password, and someone can destroy your WiiU's configuration with it, so you're pretty much breaking your own best practice.

    yeah, the ps3 uses an indexer as well to facilitate the reading the hdd. the 360, on the other hand, reads the entire hdd which is y the load times when accessing your xbla content r so slow. the ps3 indexer is in a folder named mms on the root of the hdd. I heard that the wii u's is on the root of the slc or the mlc. I've never checked though.
