    Well
    On the website it says it is pretty stable
    It might fail, but yeah launching browserhax is no longer a pain on 5.5.2

    What does the coldboot hax (syshax.xml) button do is it real autoboot?

    Hello,

    I have been testing the Mocha "0.2 FAT32 MOD",
    Hello Dimok and the others,

    First of all, I want to say thank you for your invested time on this!

    Secondly, I want to tell my experience regarding the following:

    I have been testing both the Mocha "0.2 FAT32 MOD", and the normal one, configuring it with the CBHC, to make my Wii U able to launch all the time with this modes, and I have the following considerations:

    Configuration:
    - Just put the .elf "FAT 32 MOD" file in the wiiu/apps/Mocha folder, instead of the previous 0.2 one.
    - I had to replicate the content of my SD card in the HDD.

    Considerations:
    - It worked and loaded pretty well with my FAT32 HDD (including all the Virtual Wii stuff).
    - Loadiine and Loadiine Y (DLC MOD version:y.1.0.1 ra0ba461) games worked the same good as before.
    - The only problem that was caused, and this was common for both Mocha, is that when I exit from Homebrew Launcher, the console started to make a noise, and it gets frozen.

    So I only want to ask for help regarding the last point, why when I enter, and after exit the Homebrew Launcher, the console gets frozen???

    Another thing that I want to ask, is whether there is any program, or tool or whatever that allows our computer to read the Wii U format??

    Thanks in advance,

    Best regards

    Eipok

    I am trying to perform the following sequence : Browser Exploit -> Mocha -> Homebrew Channel but when i launch Mocha it just returns to System Menu . Tried to set launchSysMenu=0 in the config file , but it still exits to SysMenu . I think i saw 2 variants of Mocha and Sigpatcher , that exit to either HBC or SysMenu , but i can't find them anymore .

    Engine room, learning
    Mocha is a full firmware patcher and need to reboot the console. you can't go back to Homebrew channel.

    You have these options from the browser exploit :
    Browser Exploit -> Homebrew Launcher -> Mocha -> Sysmenu
    OR
    Browser Exploit -> Homebrew Launcher -> Sigpatch to sysmenu -> sysmenu
    OR
    Browser Exploit -> Homebrew Launcher -> Sigpath to HBL -> Homebrew Launcher

    OLD, depretacted, don't do that :
    Browser Exploit -> Homebrew Launcher -> CFW Loader -> IOSUHax binary from SD -> Sysmenu

    You can add a ticket's bytes into the appropriate ticket bucket file, and the WiiU will use it. The bucket files themselves are just the bytes of one or more tickets concatenated.

    If you're asking how you know which ticket bucket file to put the bytes into, we don't know the hashing algorithm, but a given title goes in the same bucket on everyone's machine. That means that someone who has the title installed would have to tell you which bucket to put the bytes in. (They could run tik2sd to find out easily.)

    Well yeah, I figured out how to make extracted titles (aka Loadiine Ready) to work on Mocha FAT32, the only 2 extra files needed into "code" folder which are title.tmd and title.fst. The first one can be fetched from CDN and the second one can be easily generated using @ihaveamac's tools, but I still need to figure out how the tickets buckets works and how to manually install them on SLC.

    By this, you're meaning that you want to determine the hashing method so you'll know which bucket to use without a reference table of titleID->bucket?

    I was using ftpiiu_everwhere and a hex editor, and I'm pretty sure you're familiar with those. What angle are you approaching this from?Are you trying to write WiiU homebrew that appends the bytes of the ticket to the bucket file, or are you just trying to shove a few title's tickets into their buckets to see if the games work?

    Yes.


    Might try batch stuff first, the only thing that is needed to do on console is the bucket part which can be done with ftpiiu or wupclient (still don't know if the ticket needs to be chmod'ed on the bucket).

    I didn't have to chmod to get the ticket recognized after a delete and recreate of the bucket file via ftp. Since it worked, I never bothered to double-check that the new file matched the others.

    Hi, I'm curious I haven't followed the Wii U scene in such a long time but does Mocha CFW works with 5.3.2 Spoofed 5.5.1 or must i update firmware?

    There is no reason to stay on 5.3.2. Update to the last firmware and use Haxchi as reliable entry point

    the mocha image file is in the elf itself. it shouldn't be too hard to find. I think I may have posted it in my wii u tutorials thread on psx place. tga files should say (iirc) truevision at the bottom of the tga file, so use that to find it assuming that it's in tga format in the elf, since I can't recall if it is (probably is though).

    I found the image in my tutorials thread:

    [​IMG]

    it's upside down in mocha.elf, so you'll have to make it right side up in photoshop.

    I don't believe so. I don't think I've even seen it. there's a tga save thread that I started on psx place. I think there's one here too, so you could create your own icon.

    here's the thread: http://www.psx-place.com/threads/correct-save-settings-for-tga-files.13082/

    iirc, the mocha image above uses 16bit for some reason yet it still displays correctly. that may be the case with the tv and gamepad boot images, not sure about icons though.

    btw, I forgot to mention this, but make sure the saved files are correct; otherwise, the game/forwarder will not boot. this is even true of the icon. it will show a grey box with question marks for the title if that happens.
