    Hey guys.
    Long time 3DS Homebrew stalker, first time WiiU Homebrew stalker and poster in general (evident by my fresh account)

    Recently I got my hands on a cheap new WiiU Mario Maker Console which I'm expecting to be above or at 5.3.2 when it arrives and I'm looking for a step by step guide on how to set it up for Homebrew

    Yes yes, I already expect you to redirect me to the sticky pages but to be brutally honest it's not the clearest guide in the world and I'm coming from the 3DS Homebrew scene which is a lot more beginner friendly >.>
    Also struggling to understand the lingo behind some of the tools and what they 'actually' do, so instead of risking something stupid I'd rather seek the guidance of the (hopefully) kind people of the forums

    So basically:
    New Wii U Console with guaranteed version FW 5.3.2+ (according to sticky guide)
    Step Instructions that hold my hand a little bit or at least arrange the sticky thread instructions into something more understandable than just 'File Hosting!' 'Homebrew Channel!' 'load line!'

    I apologise in advance to the users who are easily offended and don't like the existence of this thread

    Feel free to redirect this thread if I put this in the wrong place

    What are ya, an idiot?

    Jk

    But seriously, did you really find that confusing? It's quite simple. Besides, even a lurker like you could have easily find this if you actually were looking:

    There ya go, hope that helps





    Psst, btw, you do know the latest firmware is "hackable" right? ... just let that sink in...

    Wii U is a lot easier to hack than the 3DS. You only need HBL and other homebrew you want (like Loadiine) in sd:\wiiu\apps then you go to loadiine.ovh in the browser and tap the button and HBL should load (you should bookmark that page for easier access)

    Well comparing the guides made for the 3ds scene and the WiiU scene is like comparing an old lady to a snake haha the sticky guides seem to expect that you've been following the Wii U scene for a while and I definitely haven't!

    Wow I actually completely missed that. Cheers, I'll try not to be nooby in my future posts :P
