    I know it's a long shot, but since my SD slot is broken, I'm trying to find alternatives.

    1. Is there a way to trick the Wii U into thinking an USB is an SD Card? (Long shot)
    2. Is there a way to load Loadiine without an SD Card? Or install Homebrew at all without an SD Card?

    Sorry if my questions are hilarious. I really have tried doing Homebrew things for months but my slot is totally busted now.

    Hey, sorry to bother you... but I have one last question.

    I already have Homebrew Channel installed on vWii, and I've noticed it can read apps from my USB (I didn't know this until basically 5 minutes ago). Is there any way to... I don't know, install a Wii U Homebrew from vWii Mode? I've heard the opposite can be done, though I'm not sure if it is true. Like, as far as I know, you can only read Loadiine games from SD, but to be honest just installing Homebrew Channel would be a big step (You can tell I'm desperate and in total denial x'D).

    Thanks beforehand!

    No. Like @Marko76 said. No SD slot = no Wii U homebrew
