    Hello :)

    I recently added a feature to upload your games from WII U USB Helper to your Wii U via FTP. FTPIIU usually does a decent job but I felt like it was kinda slow to have to switch between ftppiu and wup installer all the time. So why not merge the two? This is exactly what this tool is about !

    What does it do?


    This is a WUP Installer with a ftp server integrated ! It allows you to transfer games from WIIU U USB Helper to your Wiiu's sd card and install them right away without having to close wup installer (Just press Y one the upload is complete to refresh the list.

    What is different?


    This little tool is of course heavily based on WUP Installer mod Y and ftpiiu everywhere. That said, apart from merging them I have made some little adjustments including :
    • Little hack in ftpiiu everywhere (with iosuhax) to increase the upload speed (up to 2x faster in some conditions, MOCHA is required)
    • The ftp server will only mount your sd card so you're assured not to brick your console, even in iosuhax mode.

    I talked with the maker on discord. He is using Dimok's ftpiiu everywhere.
    It tells you when iosuhax is in place.

    ok, thanks. I edited the wiki to add the version.
    That's just for helping other users, if they want to know, I don't really need it :P

    Yeah it's a beta release so I guess such things are to be expected.
    I actually edited the release to fix a bug, can you try with the latest version to make sure the issue comes from somewhere else?

    This is pretty cool, and it will certainly help me out a lot!

    Thank you for your hard work Hikari06! :D

    I used it, and it didn't turn out well for me. When I tried to transfer a game (444 MBs large), it lasted more than 1 and a half hours, with the speed of 55-75 kb/s. About 30 minutes in, it aborts the transfer. Just a heads up. It's probably the internet or my slow computer, since it's my first time using it. Other than that, it works fine. :)

    Two questions

    1: whats this about iosu? does it need it? add somethiing in the thread to explain a little bit for new users. (yes im new to wiiu hb)

    2: does this use the sd card as a buffer? aka if im transferring an 8 gig game i'll need 8 gigs of free space on the sd?

    1.- Yes, you need a CFW such Mocha since it uses the dev-node for ftp transfer.
    2.- Yes, it transfer the FTS files and then installs to MCL/USB.
