    I feel really uncomfortable writing to nand, and I install all games to usb, so I made it that way, actually you only need to modify two lines of code to make it work with nand, DEV_USB and PATH_USB

    you'd have to add a whitelist so you don't change the region of system titles, i'd say just use a usb/

    Well I saw him in several other threadspromoting the tool to be a simpler way to do it, so I came to look.
    Writing down some simple steps shouldnt be that hard right ? :(

    This is as easy as it gets.
    Download wup server
    download .py
    iosuhax wii u
    Open .py in command prompt

    If thats hard then you shouldn't use this

    It only modifies region for titles starts with 00050000 0005000c 0005000e, I though this qualifies as a whitelist? Correct me if I'm wrong, and it wont do any write if no modification is needed.

    Sorry, didn't know it had a whitelist. Just saying that in the case that it didn't.

    Don't be sorry, I'm not sure if it's enough, it would be nice if you could clarify this.

    It's perfectly fine, but you should add 00050002 to it. That's a eShop demo.

    OK I downloaded his script and edited the 2 parts, IP and changed the region to Eur (mine). Now I simply run CFW on WiiU and run the region_modifier?
