    1. Purchase
    zsun® WiFi Memory Card Reader TF MicroSD USB Flash Drive for PC Phone
    Code:
    http://www.amazon.com/zsun-Memory-Reader-MicroSD-Flash/dp/B00U70J1BM?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00



    2. Flash Openwrt using this tutorial
    Code:
    https://wiki.hackerspace.pl/projects:zsun-wifi-card-reader:factory-update


    3. log on to openwrt ssid then goto 192.168.1.1 in browser and set password

    4.upload exploit payload files to /www folder using winscp

    I recommend this fantastic payload mod uploaded by @redatim : https://gbatemp.net/threads/self-hosted-payloads-with-only-static-html.425159/

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    6. edit out https info in /etc/config/uhttpd


    7.unplug zsun from pc and attach to wii u


    8. logon to zsun wifi from wii u


    8.goto 192.168.1.1/whatevruset.html or .mp4


    9.PROFIT??


    Alternative tutorial (Thanks citrus3000psi)

    So far i have been thoroughly impressed with this device. i took a chance and the reliability, the flexibility providing sd compatibility, as well as the form factor and cost have made the zsun® WiFi Memory Card Reader a very viable all in one solution to the web hosting aspect of the Wii U exploit.

    Thanks to everyone involved in the creation of the exploits, loadiine, HBL, and all others for making my Wii U interesting again!

    *special shout out to @citrus3000psi, @lordelan, @redatim and everyone else who contributed to this short tutorial.

    Very nice! Pretty cool. I took my wii u with me on vacation and this would have been very nice to have! Instead I had to use my phone's hotspot to connect my laptop and my wii u to the same network then self host from the laptop. This would have been much easier

    This is exactly the solution I was looking for! Thanks! :)
    Would you mind if I translate this for a german forum as well (giving you credit of course and linking here)?

    Edit: Ordered. Should arrive before may 14th. Can't wait. Hope it works like you promised. :P

    it's useless that it works with any sd-card size as long as we don't have USB Storage access.
    Why would some1 put for example a sd-card larger than 1gb just for hosting if the exploit only takes a few MB's? and the rest of the card can't be used as no USB support is given yet?
    Whenever something like IOSU exploit will be available, everybody will use an USB-HDD anyways...

    Loadiine just supports SD-Card for the moment, so the more useful option is to use the ez Share WiFi SD Adapter which at least let you use 32GB MicroSDs and works without any extra device directly in the Wii-U SD-Slot. Selfhosting and game-backup on the same sd-card.
    Much more sexy in my point of view...

    @KiiWii and myself are using it without the need to mess around with OpenWRT etc.
    It just works right out of the box.

    Cheers :grog:

    Using the EZ Share Wifi SD Adapter is of limited benefit. Also using Micro SD cards is not as good as using "real" SD cards for Loadiine as stated sometimes here.
    So hosting the exploits for Kernel and Loadiine still needs a PC or Android device.
    I ordered one of these small sticks now. I have loads of 1 GB mSD cards from old phones flying around here so it won't do me any harm to "waste" one of the "only a few MB's" small exploit. So I just take the Wii U and have everything on it. PLUS: I think if I put a larger mSD card in there it can be used by USB Loader GX in vWii mode since it's an USB stick after all.

    Agreed, however it will be useful when USB compatibility is added to loadiine in future.

    Right now the SD wifi method is compact, fool proof, and simple drag and drop!

    :grog:

    EDIT : @lordelan
    The exploit exists on selfhost SD card so no need for laptop other than to transfer games to SD card.

    Sorry but it's total nonsense that microsd have a disadvantage to normal sd's.
    We had this discussion several times already. the package size has nothing to do with speed/performance etc.

    See past discussion about this here: https://gbatemp.net/posts/6147777/

    Why are people spreading the same old wrong rumors over and over again?
    The Wii-Us SD-Slot is physically limited to 25Mb/sec every sd-card with class 10 can easily provide enought throughput to achive this.
    The only difference in loading speed is how the card-internal controller handles cluster sizes larger than 32k which is at the time a keyfeature of SanDisk Cards which handle 64k much better and faster than most other vendors cards...

    Okay then my knowledge is outdated. Sorry for confusion. :)
    What's left is the fact that I experienced micro SD cards are dying far more often than SD cards.
    That's what not only I have experienced but my mother, my girlfriend and a buddy of mine as well, no matter from which brand although I've gotta say I'm using a Samsung 64 GB micro SD in my smartphone for 4 years know which is still working perfectly.

    However, I ordered the zsun WiFi stick because I can use it for USB Loader GX and vWii emuNAND as well (I hope so) so I'm gonna be happy with it. :)

    How can i use my 128gb card with ezShare?
    it isn't difficult to spend 10 minutes and write openwrt to zsun...
    I have big restriction with ezShare and cards and no restrictions with usb wifi.

    no problemo! no worries posting elsewhere. it did take a while setting it up for me, as i knew nothing about openwrt, but i think i can find my way aroumd now so if you need any help after arrival let me know.

    on a side note an sd is not required IN the zsun as it has 16mb onboard flash memory (plenty for server/exploit content

    Have you tested using it to play Wii games with USB Loader GX?
    Also does the Wii U prompt you to format it when it's plugged in so I would have to use U stealth on it?

    Thank you! :)
    I'll make some tests as well when my treasure arrives. Using it for USB Loader GX and vWii emuNAND as well as Wii U exploits and with micro sd cards of any size would be the big deal compared to EZ WiFi cards.

    Where do you put the 128gb SD in the USB wifi stick or in the Wii u SD slot.

    5.4.0 spoofed to 5.5.1

    open your desktop in file explorer ,
    right click on my computer,
    goto map network drive
    select a drive letter
    type \\zsun\public as folder path
    that should allow you to access the directory

    side note i noticed when u create the ".update" folder the device will rename the folder. copy the update file to this folder an it will work
