Lately I've seen a lot of posts / threads about using tubehax / opendns or using your wii u in a remote place which isn't your home (e.g. hotel). So I thought I would share my "safe way" of using / hosting your files without running the risk of any updates reaching your wii. (You will obviously still be able to update via disk). This tutorial was made with Android 5.0.1 but it's also possible on any other version which supports kWS (creating the hotspot WILL be different and you'll need to figure out that part on your own) What you'll need: An android phone kWS webserver: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.xeustechnologies.android.kws DefinitivePackage from fiveighteen: You'll need to disable your cellular internet connection before doing any of this! Please do NOT forget this. Your WiiU WILL update if you don't do this. This means your phone won't have internet access during the process! Download fiveighteens DefinitivePackage (link in the quote, you might need to go to the original thread.) Unpack the zip-file with given password You should now have a folder and a file in your directory: You're going to rename the "DefinitivePackage-20151119" (Number might be different) to "wiiu" You'll have to copy the "wiiu" folder now over to your home directory of your phone (The one with the "Android", "Alarms", etc. folders) Go to the playstore and download "kWS - Android Web Server" or if you're logged into your google account install to your device from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.xeustechnologies.android.kws Open "kWS" once it's installed on your phone Now you need to create a "Mobile Hotspot" with your phone. Go to your phone settings -> Connections -> More networks and select "Tethering and mobile hotspots" Now enable "Mobile hotspot", this will warn you that you'll be disconnected from your current wireless network You should now be able to access the settings of the mobile hotspot (either by clicking on it or clicking the icon on the top right. This will show you the status, ssid and password Now you need to open kWS and you should see this: Go into settings and click on "Home directory" in the "General" area and type in "/sdcard/wiiu": Accept and start the server, you should now see your local IP Connect your WIIU to your local hotspot and open your browser and go to the ip shown (in my case 192.168.43.1:8080 or 192.168.43.1:8080/index.html You'll now be able to use all the tools provided in the package. If you turned off your celular data there's no way your wiiu will be able to connect to the internet / download updates.
