    you got an answer on your other topic. Dimok is not available since end of december, he won't answer you personally. (other users can answer, or you can try and see if it works).

    To answer you here : yes, you can use Simple Signature Patcher to install and launch DLC or bad signed games. that's the purpose of this homebrew.

    or update the config file to boot to patcher automatically and return to menu and have Homebrew Launcher assigned to button B. This way you won`t need Gamepad all the time to play DLC.

    yes, that's what I explained to you before (and you even quoted my post asking for a more detailed/easier instruction, so I left that part out of the guide to make it simple)

    Guys some questions:

    - I can execute unsigned code using browserhax -> HBL -> sigpatch2sysmenu -> homebrew/game. But after leaving a VC game, for example, I'm back to the default sysmenu, right? I'm asking this because I get signature failure errors (actually it's a generic WiiU error) and I'm forced to shutdown the console holding the power button. With this I'm stuck to running browserhax after any game is closed? What about haxchi/CBHC? Does that patch my sysmenu permanently? I mean, not in the sense that the NAND/file system is patched, but I'm guaranteed to always be running a sigpatched sysmenu?

    Since you didn't specify what VC game you're running, I'll take the simple answer and tell you that any Wii VC game reboots the system, so after running one of those, you have to reload your patches.

    CBHC doesn't apply the patches permanently, but it does trigger the loading of the patches at each startup, which would avoid the signature errors after vWii games. Haxchi and Mocha reapply the patches after events like exiting the settings menu, but they can't work around the kind of restart that Wii mode triggers.

    I'm playing donkey Kong country currently, but I've experienced the same behavior after closing hbl without triggering sigpatch2sysmenu for the second time.

    This is really great. I was having so much trouble getting fw.img to do what I wanted. This works just as expected.

    For some reason github won't let me download it. Can someone upload the HBL version for me somewhere else? :)

    This might be a dumb question but I didn't understand sig patch very well
    I successfully installed some DLCs and VC games using sig patcher (HBC->SigPatch->WiiU Menu->HBC->WUP installer) I don't have Haxchi installed
    Whenever I turn on the Wii U it says my DLCs and VCs are corrupted : I'm forced to delete them and reinstall
    Did I do something wrong ? Do I have to run something everytime I want to play a game where a DLC is installed ?

    Yes,you need to run a sigpatcher every time you run something with a fake ticket.
    DLC that you didn't buy have fake tickets, so you need to run sigpatcher everytime before running the game

    Hello, I need help getting this to work, I installed Twilight Princess HD JPN using WUP installer and then I ran this Sigpatcher using the HBL it works
    fine and I get sent to the Home menu but when I run the game it's in English! It doesn't make sense because I wouldn't think the JPN version would
    have the English files, so I thought it wouldn't run at all. Anyone knows if there's something I'm missing? I see no options to change language in game.

    Thanks for your help

    You need to load a program called spiik you will find it here https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-spiik-region-language-changer.464126/ Start the homebrew launcher load spiik select language as Japanese and region to Japan the wiiu will reset then start twilight princess and it will be in japanese. Tested this myself and know it works.

    Thanks again! :)

    EDIT:
    @Marko76

    So does this mean that I can launch the homebrew launcher from the home screen without having to go to loadiine and launching fw.img first?

    It means you could run this instead of cfwboot/fw.img, but the developer has long since replaced SSP with Mocha. Be it fw.img, SSP, Mocha, or Haxchi/CBHC, you have to run some kind of signature patcher before you run the Homebrew Launcher Channel.

    (for the future, please just highlight the necessary part of a post and hit reply or quote+ on the pop-up. You don't have to quote the whole OP.)

    Oh! okay and thanks!
    How long do you think it will be until we can do something similar to haxchi but without a DS VC (or the need for any game at that)

    Similar to haxchi? Don't hold your breath. Here's what makes the DS VC special:
    With those points making it easier to develop, combined with the speed at which the title reaches the exploited code, there might not be a better fit. The DS titles weren't chosen by accident, and if something similar but free were available, it probably would have surfaced by now.

    As for not needing any game, finding a content hack for the system menu might be possible, but I doubt you'd find people installing it until we have bulletproof hardmod NAND backup and restore. From a different angle, I'm sure people are still working on getting Boot1 access.

    Right now, finding $10 to buy a game would probably be easier on you than waiting for a free solution. Until then, just load up the titles that have disc tickets available so you don't need signature patching to play. It's not like you'll need to load new games every day, so you'll only be running the exploit when you add them.
