    Recently, my Wii U Gamepad's charging ability has stopped working and until I get not only a new charger, but also a new charging stand (since the port does not work) I can't use apps such as the System settings or a LOT of homebrew that work only with the Gamepad.
    So I've been looking for any way to change some system settings without the Gamepad and discovered about the "System Config Tool" and how it only used to work on Rednand until GBATemp member @punderino created a version that works on Sysnand without bricking the console.
    I need this tool in order to change the Calendar due to the clock being ahead by a few minutes and to connect the console to the internet since I don't have a LAN adapter and even if I did, the Wii U is not close enough to the Modem for any Ethernet cable to reach.
    I haven't found anything in regards as to how can I install the tool & more importantly: where can I find it. I even checked "That ISO site" and found nothing.
    With this in mind, could somebody help me install this tool? Thank you.

    You need to install it using wup installer which requires the gamepad.

    I know that there is no version of Wup Installer GX that works without the Gamepad, but what about Wup Installer Mod Y? It's text based so I don't see why it couldn't work with the Wii U Pro/Classic Controller. Do you know of any version that works without the Gamepad? similar to this version of the Homebrew Launcher that works without the Gamepad.

    1- It's available on "that anus trade site", which by the way is Punderino's, iirc
    2- I don't remember if bluetooth controller friendly versions of both the HBL and wupinstaller y-mod were made (I am but only of the former), so chances are you're going to need to fix your gamepad first (which you should do anyway - I hate software workarounds for hardware problems :) )
    3- it's a single cell lithium battery, if you don't have any better you can charge it with a current-and-voltage controlled power supply (the fairly common 4-knob coarse/fine 2-display affairs)

    1- Thanks for the info. I was able to download the tool. (even if I can't install it for now)
    2- The fact there is a version of the HBL that works with the Wii U Pro/Classic Controller means that (at least for text based apps) they can create versions compatible with these controllers making the navigation similar to Wii Homebrew apps.
    3- I'm afraid that I lack knowledge about this kind of stuff, so this just means I'm going to need the charger, charger stand and new battery for a longer battery life.

    Judging from some screenshots I've seen, I think you can change the language, but I don't think you can make the Wii U region free. For that I think you are better off installing a CFW such as Mocha or Haxchi.

    the screenshots on his site are actually from a different version. for example, you can dump saves, but you can't inject them. I told him about it.

    So nobody tested... I'm afraid to change and end up bricking it, you think it's risky?

    Not really, you are only changing the language of the system and not the region itself so it should be safe.

    I can't remember if you can make it region free, but it will show you which regions it can use. I think it reads that from the sys_prod.xml, 'cause I modified mine, and it showed up as region free in system config tool.

    Yes I do have an American Wii U, however I can't use this tool to test this since I don't have a Gamepad to install the tool unfortunately.
    Maybe you can test this.

    that I don't know. I didn't look at all of the options, but there's a disclaimer that says there's a high brick risk if you mess around without knowing what you're doing. those are mainly the bottom options. I just used it to mass install and mass dump games/saves.

    I'd advise you not to try it. the system has virtually no safeguards to protect against system software corruption. you might try it in redNAND to see what happens. that's about all redNAND's good for.

    Yeah, redNAND is recommended to try out extremely risky stuff.

    yeah, I modified sys_prod.xml on redNAND first. once I verified that it worked, I did it on sysNAND. I kept a backup of the original, unmodified file.

    I uninstalled both versions. I was using redNAND and sysNAND at the same time. system config tool on sysNAND causes a blank space on redNAND, which I didn't like.
