What is this?
A homebrew app that allows you to hide your USB from the Wii U for use in the vWii

How do I use it?
Download the app, copy the folder in the zip to wiiu/apps, ensure you only have the USB you want to hide inserted, run it, and press A, it's that simple!

I don't get the point of hiding a USB.
Let me explain you, let’s say you have a USB with vWii games, the Wii U will ask you to format it everytime you go to the Wii U menu, when you hide it, it won’t ask you to format it, but your vWii games will still work

I have a question though, I already have a SSDconnected and the Wii U will tell me that I can't have two usb devices, can this program hide the other USb for vWii by coldbooting into the HBL (Via TIRAMISU) and running the app?

Probably, but first remove the usb device you don’t want to hide

Didn't work, Hiding the Vwii usb still returns the Wii U asking me to power off bc two usb devices, Hiding the SSD doesn't work bc its already wii u formatted (MBR 36)
Then it’s not the homebrew’s fault but rather the Wii U

Indeed, it's better for that point. Does it hide the drive from wiiu but not from a pc? This would be the perfect point of improvement of a tool like that, but I doubt it can be done (technical reason maybe). Thanks Xpl0itU!! I like the idea of your tool!
PS: I was wondering if some malwares on pc have used this kind of capacity to crypt drives/usb keys and ask for ramsons? maybe this could be a cure. Those malwares tend to protect themselves on windows system, but maybe are not able to protect themselves from a wiiu system.

Don't need a pc, plus Ustealth is a windows app.
It isnt limited to just Windows, I think I made a Bash script for it a while back for Linux
It will most likely be hidden on pc as well, so I'd imagine you'd have to rerun it.
Also yes it'd be hidden on PC but you can use a tool like G-Parted to forcibly mount it.

Is it compatible with Ustealth? So that HDD hidden on WiiU can be unhidden with Ustealth on PC and HDD hidden with Ustealth can be unhid on WiiU?
