    Hello, I have 2 questions, if anyone can help that'd be great!

    1. My console is on 5.5.1 U. A friend of mine's got some games he imported from Japan. Will I be able to play those discs with the new homebrew? I heard the region lock has been taken care of by applying a patch...

    2. Will I able to transfer saved data from another console and load it on mine?

    (Sorry I'm still kinda new to this)

    Thanks~~!

    Welcome to GBATemp!

    1) If you're talking about running out-of-region disc games, a couple people have had luck with the OurLoader program. It doesn't work with all discs, unfortunately. It can run within the Homebrew Launcher, which can be easily run on your console. Visit the Wii U Hacking and Homebrew section and visit the vast amount of guides available there. I also plan on writing a super guide later on, similar to that if @Plailect's guide for 3DS.

    2) Another program that can be run within the Homebrew Launcher called Saviine, which can dump/inject save data, even between consoles. You need a PC in order to use it, though.
