    The DLC is definitively NOT WORTH IT.

    The language pack is specifically for BOTW and IIRC you need to download it thru the game menu.

    Couple quick questions:
    1. Is Mocha actually necessary for this? Any reason I couldn't just run tik2sd, WUP Installer, and FTPiiU Everywhere directly from the Homebrew Launcher? I ask because I'm keeping my system as stock as possible (no Homebrew Channel, no Haxchi, I just use the browser exploit whenever I want to launch Homebrew) and don't want to install HBC to run homebrew from Mocha.
    2. Shouldn't we be running tik2sd once prior to installing any DLC WUPs, thus ensuring we have a tik backup that consists entirely of properly signed tickets and no fake ones?

    Sorry the late response, did you try the tutorial again?

    What session of the tutorial did you have trouble? Did you try to use the website to swap the tickets?

    1 - Browser exploit is fine. You just need any exploit to do the trick.

    2 - You need to run tik2sd after the install because you need to know where the ticket is installed.

    Hey, thanks for the reply. I figured any exploit would work, but just wanted to be sure in case Mocha was doing something permissions or file access related behind the scenes I didn't know about. Learning as I go here regarding the Wii U. :)

    As for the tickets backup, I get that tik2sd is used to locate the correct .tik file, I was just thinking it might be a good idea to have a "clean" backup of the system tickets prior to any generated/invalid tickets getting installed.

    Also, I just spent a little bit of time researching the ticket file format and digging around in my own tickets that I dumped. As best I can tell, what's happening is that WUP Installer is prepending the bogus generated ticket .tik file of the DLC it's installing onto the existing legitimate free DLC ticket .tik file, rather than appending it onto the end, thus the need for the swap via hex editing or the fixer site.

    However, since all DLC for a given game shares the same title ID (e.g. the BOTW free language pack DLC and the full expansion DLC both share title ID 0005000c101c9400), wouldn't the system be looking for a single ticket within the .tik? That is, isn't the reason the ticket swap even works in the first place is because the system is only expecting/reading the first 848 bytes of the .tik and it never even looks at the bogus ticket that comes after it?

    Therefore, rather than doing the swap, wouldn't it actually work and be more correct to strip the generated ticket out entirely, leaving just the original ticket (or simply restore a backup of the free DLC's corresponding .tik taken prior to installing the DLC with WUP installer)? I'm curious if anyone has tried doing either. I'd give it a shot myself, but I'm hesitant to start messing with anything that resides on the NAND since I'm totally new to the Wii U.

    I could be way off base here, as like I said, I'm totally new to the Wii U scene and this is just what I've learned based on examining the .tik files and reading about their format over the past couple hours.

    There's no harm in grabbing a 'before' snapshot, but since you have to do it again to find your ticket location, and the only title that will be affected is the one you're working on, it's a bit redundant.
    The system manipulates the tickets, not the app, but yes, if the system appended, it would just work on its own.
    The swap works because only the first ticket's signature is validated, but the items allowed by all tickets are accumulated. All tickets are read.
    If you only have the free DLC's ticket, then you only get the free DLC items. And since the first ticket's signature must be valid (unless you're running cfw) you can't mess with that ticket to turn on more items.

    Can I do this with smash? And can I use this to modify the homebrew launcher (channel’s) title.tik?

    If I Need Legit DLC, Why is this Necessary? Crack DLC With Legit DLC? What is This?

    Yes, you need one legitimate DLC item from the game to unlock all of that game's DLC items. The legitimate item can be free, such as BOTW's language pack. So, after following this procedure, you have a game (with all of its DLC) available for play without having to run your CFW anymore before playing that game, and possibly without buying anything.
