    In continue to my last tool, wfsdump, I wrapped wfslib with fuse. Now you can mount WFS USB and MLC dumps on linux, (currently in read only mode)

    Source code

    Build:
    Install the requirements
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git g++ make libfuse-dev libboost-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libcrypto++-dev
    Clone the repository:
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/koolkdev/wfslib.git
    Enter the directory and run the Makefile:
    Code:
    cd wfslib
    make

    Usage:
    Code:
    usage: wfs-fuse <device_file> <mountpoint> --otp OTP_PATH [--seeprom SEEPROM_PATH] [--usb] [--mlc]
    
    options:
       --help|-h             print this help message
       --otp|-o PATH         otp file
       --seeprom|-s PATHH    seeprom file (required if usb)
       --usb|-u              device is usb (default)
       --mlc|-m              device is mlc
       -d   -o debug         enable debug output (implies -f)
       -f                    foreground operation
       -s                    disable multi-threaded operation
    Example:
    Code:
    sudo wfs-fuse /dev/sdb /mnt --otp otp.bin --seeprom seeprom.bin

    When writting into an archive will be implemented, it would be good to possibly convert to FAT32.... But useless for now since mocha doesn't handle well FAT32 (HUUU in fact it's nintendo FAT32 driver who is shitty :P)

    Great job anyway :)

    IIRC, a effective WiiU-FS access (with read) mean a Browser-less haxchi :D No ? :)

    Wow! This is kinda amazing! Since the wii u formatted hard drives can be read now, any possibility of being able to partition a hard drive for wii u/vwii simultaneous use? Don't know the details of why it was said that it couldn't be done beyond not knowing how to even read wii u formatted hard drives.

    I guess the other question would be if write access is achieved, might it be possible to put other files on it and have homebrew apps in vwii read the wii u formatted hard drive?

    DS what? Never heard about that.

    BTW I think USB to write into the wiiu will break it (full dump). So only hadmode

    sry didnt paid attention, DS Game,
    And im talking aobut writing into the USB formated WiiU drive, put your legit DS game on it, edit it with haxchi on PC with a WiiU-FS, you're done.

    Anyway it's impossible you still need an entrypoint to dump your seeprom and otp.

    Yeah but maybe in a near future, we can figure out a way to get rid of that barrier :), would be cool for 5.5.2s without haxchi installed before, not my case but it would be neat ! ^^

    Maybe we do some comparisons for testing? Read the DS game with HaxChi installed from a system with HaxChi working and compare it with the same DS game on a 5.5.2. I don't know if this would work since there are signatures and whatnot but wouldn't hurt to try

    This is would be literally the perfect setup. Make a Wii U Partition alongside an NTFS for Wii and a FAT32 for Nintendont. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Eye have faith in you @EyeKey .

    I'm surprised that nobody tried this with Mocha's FAT32 feature, since the only way to move WFS formated drive titles to a FAT32 drive was with ftpiiu everywhere.
