    Is there a resource out there that shows how i can get dlc for games that are installed through the usb wupinstaller/brazilian method? specifically im looking for call of duty map packs if there is a special process for them.

    As far as I know, DLC still has to be purchased in a legit manor. I could be wrong though with as quick as these things progress.

    There's a browser exploit based method for running decrypted DLC off the SD card with installed games , but it currently only supports Smash .

    I've only managed to make my DLCs fully work downloading with FunKiiU... FunKiiU automatically patches the DLCs so they are fully unlocked to work fine on redNAND... tried to download the DLCs with uTik and some wasn't fully workable and some did not even install.

    Now, i download my games and updates with uTik and my DLCs with FunKiiU... everything, till now, is working fine.

    EDIT: for those who do not have a large size SD card, you can compile FIX94's branch and it will only apply the sigpatches and more to the original sysNAND and you can install your DLCs to your sysNAND and make it work without dumping your nand and using it emulated. It's a little dangerous as if you do something wrong, you can brick your wii u, but i've tested and it worked for me... the only thing you need to do is load the fw.img every time you want to play the game you installed the DLC for, otherwise, if you try to launch the game, it will say you have corrupted extra content and asks you to delete it before you can run the game again...

    EDIT 2: Obviously you'll need a sd card larger than the DLC you want to install as you need to put it to the SD card to install to your USB or Internal Memory.

    Slightly off topic: in this update there shows SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2. But its red. I can download it, does this mean we can get it but not use it (as I'm sure vWII VC is not supported yet), or does this mean we can use the WUP packager to repackage and install now?

    EDIT: RED = for redNAND!

    Still unsure if this will work though..... even on rednand....
