    HI, everyone
    Noob here, My question is:
    Do we must use "Smash Stack" to get Homebrew work? Is there have any other way to get wii u hack without game card?

    I hope you know smash stack will only let you get homebrew in Wii mode. Nobody has (publicly) hacked the Wii U yet.

    The Wii had some ways of installing the Homebrew Channel without games, like Letterbomb, but none of them work on the Wii U. You'll need one of the following games.
    • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    • LEGO Indiana Jones
    • LEGO Batman
    • LEGO Star Wars
    • Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
    • Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Wheelie Breakers

    This.

    Absolutely read it all and make sure you understand before even putting the disk in your Wii U. vWii bricks are much harder to recover from than a normal wii that can have access to things like priloader etc.

    Yes, you need to install the homebrew channel via the exploit you want to use. Smash stack is the most widely used, but the others are fine ways of doing it as well. Then it's just a case of putting the nintendont app on your SD card. For the exploit to work, you need an SD card 2 GB or less. No SDHC or SDXC, has to be SD. After installing homebrew channel, you can use any SD card you like.

    You don't need any cIOS mods for Nintendont, but if you want to use any USB loader, you absolutely have to.

    Remember to put everything in the right folders via the install instructions. Make sure you've done it all right before you install.
