    I am using haxchi and mocha, i have a fully modded homebrew. ourloader does not work through homebrew as some said earlier it just keeps going to the main homebrew launcher screen and I do not know how to open ourloader through haxchi or make my wii u region free as there are many apps in the homebrew appstore that i do not know about and spiik doesn't really work. i have been trying for many hours to get my NTSC cds play on my Pal Wii U everything works 100% in the vWii using Wii flow. but nothing on the Wii U since i cannot use the tools i have. i would really appreciate the help

    haxchi and mocha are region free. there might be a way to change the meta for each game. I think the file is called meta.xml inside the metal folder for each game. let the games install, then ftp to their location. I think ftpii u everywhere can only see usb1, so you may have to unplug the virtual wii's hdd (if the games are on the usb hdd). I remember experiencing this myself. ;)

    Try ourloader this way:
    -boot mocha to desktop
    -lauch hombrew channel previously installed to desktop
    -launch ourloader

    Or just follow OP replacing
    Code:
    Start your Wii U in rednand (or with wupserver if you do RegionHax on your sysNand)
    with
    Code:
    Start your Wii U in mocha (as wupserver is always running in background with mocha)
    Beeing careful you'll be good to go to run most of out of region disks.

    the thing is, i have CDs i bought a ton of Wii U Cds online from USA because i thought alright. since i made a PAL Wii U play USA wii games i shouldn't worry as ourloader will play the Wii U games.. but it did not
    when you say boot mocha to the desktop are you still referring to the mocha in the homebrew launcher? because i can only load it from there.

    And by the way, using haxchi and mocha together is a mistake as there both doing the same thing.
    You should use onr or the other, not both.

    sorry. I#m a bit of a noob and the highlight of my success was getting to play USA wii games on a pal Wii U

    fair enough. i will remove mocha and use Haxchi alone. but how exactly can i use Haxchi when it doesn't open anymore it starts the music starts and it just goes blank.

    Nop, I meant from webbrowser from quickstart loading loadiine.ovh mocha launcher.
    But, because I never used haxchi and because you may use both, I'll say run mocha and wupserver should be running on your wiiu.

    i have a Haxchi cold boot which starts the homebrew launcher in the Wii U homepage fine as i did it in july 2018 using a superb method which installed everything magically into the Wii U and i don't really need to use the loadiine.ovh in fact i only had to do it once in my life to get things going. i want to actually open haxchi straight from my wii u menu.

    what I mentioned is just a possibility. I'm not sure if regionhax will fix this, so it's an alternative.

    Ok OT. Just run mocha anyway and wup server will run on your wiiu so you can follow OP forgetting paragraph about fw.img.

    I installed this a long time ago, but I've never really had a need for it. there are a lot of problems with uninstalling it like apps no longer working or the wii u disc and wii channels disappearing if the NNiD is deleted. I just left it since I don't plan on deleting mine. I did make a backup of the sys_prod.xml though. I'd strongly urge he do the same in case something happens, 'cause I've heard of some who've edited it back screwing up the system.

    btw, there's no need to use wup server since we have ftpii u everywhere. ;)

    Here is the 3 pictures missing from OP because links are dead...
    This tutorial should be writed again with sysnand and haxchi (or browserhax) in mind.
    Skipping obsolete parts about rednand. regionfree_values. cfg_wupclient. IMG_0051.

    i recently tried this out to get a EU game working on my US wii u, but instead of putting in 119 like i should have, i put in 4 for europe. now that my console is set to play software from the EU i can't launch any games, and furthermore, i can't launch my browser to change the values again nor can i factory reset my wii u because BOTH are region locked apparently and give me an error upon trying to use them... i wanted to know if there was any way around fixing this issue or is my wii u just stuck like this now?
