    Hey all. Kinda new to the forums here. But recently with the help of some amazing members here, got a new3DS and got AL9H+CFW up and running and everything is super awesome.

    What's the state of the Wii U scene here at the moment? Is something like A9LH for 3DS possible for Wii U at the moment? (Installing pirated .CIA, playing online safely etc)

    If so, how easy or not easy is it to setup compared to something like Plaitecs AL9H guide?
    I don't even have a Wii U yet, just wondering about options

    The Wiiu scene is still in its infancy. While the 3DS is pretty much completely and utterly owned inside and out, all we have right now for the Wiiu is temporary kernel access (i.e. needs to be re-applied on every bootup). Games are a lot tougher to find and play correctly than 3DS. Games have to be decrypted into their file state currently so its a lot more inconvenient than finding and installing CIAs. There are a few guides out there but none on the level of Phlatecs guide.

    The Wii U scene lacks any public CFWs, so don't get your hopes up for anything like A9LH being released soon. However, there is this:

    I was curious looking to see if I could find and ISOs for Wii u games and I could pretty much find any game in "loadline" format. What is loadline? People seem to be playing game ISOs on that?

    Only certain games require SSBU, most can run using MiiMaker, but you cannot play online, as the Wii U will think you're actually playing SSBU or MiiMaker instead of the backup you're actually playing
