    My little bros friend updated our firmware from 5.5.1 to 5.5.3. We're pretty much screwed for loading backed up games, correct?

    Hi. I have freeze in Zelda BOTW on splash screen. Haxchi+CBHC. Installed via "brazillian" method on USB HDD. I tried to moving it to NAND - no results. If i download update from eShop - i see screen "Press A to start" and freeze again. Don't understand what going on. Sleep mode on HDD disabled. I try reset console and HDD - no results.

    Hi. New member here. Just got my WiiU today and have installed CBHC however with the apparent demise of Wii USB Helper it seems a bit of a minefield to source and install games. I understand that program gave you the files you needed in the correct format to transfer but with the popularity of Cemu there seem to be a bunch of versions. Are there any guides handy to get a handle on all this?

    For instance i'm grabbing a wud version now. Is that any good to me? This is the filelit..

    sxs-zbow.key
    0.02 kB
    sxs-zbow.nfo
    3.47 kB
    sxs-zbow.wud
    23.31 GB

    You can extract WUDs. I don't remember with which tool tbh. Dunno if "CDecrypt" was capable of that.

    Guys, what about SDXC SD cards? They supported? I ask because when i install games via this SDXC card - game not working. With SDHC everything is fine. Maybe it possible to fix?

    Gambia, The
    sdxc are normally formatted with exfat and maybe this is not supported, so try to check if the card has the right filesystem and maybe reformat

    Thanks.. I did see then that those images can be extracted but with the easy download of proper filesets now gone it seems a pita to get games in their proper format. A lot of it seems extracted for use with Cemu. Are there no alternatives now wii usb helper has gone? Even privtae torrents dont seem to have much (prob cos it was so easy with usb helper)?

    Extracted games (for Cemu/Loadiine) can be repacked with NUS Packer.

    Hello incredibly new to Wiiu hacking. I am attempting to use the XCXSound mod that utilizes the cafiine server. I have gotten to the part where it asks me to go to loadiine.ovh and Select Cafiine + Kernel. Only issue, is that Cafiine + Kernel is not present on the drop down list. I am on 5.5.3

    Can I copy data to a new SD card and just use it? I would like to recover the SD card that is in my Wii U and replace it with another one. I'm using a 128gb microSD and I'm finish backing up NAND and installing games. I want to swap back to a 32gb SD card and recover the 128gb micro SD for other use. Can I just copy data to the other card, swap it and call it a day? Any risk here? I'm using standard haxchi (no coldboot yet) with backup installed on a USB drive.

    No

    You can even use 4gb and do it in sections


    Edit: I am sorry I thought this was the switch board, I retract my statement

    Well, all I want to know is if I can take out the SD card, copy the content of it to a new one and use the new one.

    Yes, as long as the new card is also formatted as FAT32.

    Can I use my android phone as SD card reader? I want to put games on it. My PC doesnt have SD card slot. Wii U is already hacked.
