    Hi!

    Just a quick question so I know for sure:

    When I launch Mocha CFW (I launch with redNAND OFF) inside HBL does it mean Wii U becomes region free, meaning I could insert a USA disc in my EUR Wii U and also play WUPInstalled NTSC VC backups on USB without bricking sysNAND?

    Pretty sure disc games would work the same as digital games when it comes to region free.

    afaik, playing out-of-region games on sysNAND has no risk of bricking. if ur not region free, u'll just get an error message.
