Hello there, straight to the point: I need to find my Wii U's "device ID" but I don't know how. I did some research and apparently I need to call the function "MCP_GetDeviceID" but I don't know how to do that. If anyone can help me, please leave me some helpful advice, thanks!

(For the record, I wasn't sure where to post this, on my alt it kept marking the thread as "spam", lol.)

what do you mean by device id? if you mean the serial number, you can find it on the box and at the bottom of the console

Thanks to Maschell, I found my device ID! I'll leave a little tutorial on how to do it here, in case anyone else runs into the same problem:
#1 - Download this and put in the apps folder on your SD card.
#2 - Download Loadiine GX2 and go to the udp_debug_reader folder, then start the executable.
#3 - Start your Wii U, then open HBL and launch the .elf file you downloaded earlier.
#4 - That's it! Your device ID will be logged to the text file created by the application on your PC.

Hi, I tried to follow your steps. I don't understand what you mean when you write "go to the udp_debug_reader folder, then start the executable"
I don't see the "udp_debug_reader" folder in the Loadiine GX2 ZIP file.

Additionally I tried to launch the .elf file from th HBL on the Wii U, but all I get is a white screen for a few seconds then the Wii U goes back to the Wii U menu.

I also looked in the SD card and I don't see any newly created text file.
