How does it work
This uses the fact that the Wii U will redownload many missing files when performing a System Update.
So this homebrew will remove files that can be redownloaded and forces a System Update.
This even works while being on the latest Firmware Version!

How to use
Choose an option from the menu and confirm with START.
After a mode has finished press any button to launch System Settings where you can perform an update.
The update folder will be recreated if you deleted it! Make sure to delete it again if you want to block updates

Light mode
This will redownload every essential System Title including all IOS

Aggressive Mode
This will remove EVERYTHING!
Save Data, Installed Channels, ...

Force Update
This will force an update which may redownload any missing files

Regenerate setting.txt
This will regenerate the setting.txt which is the only file that can't be recovered by any of the other modes.
The file will be regenerated from the consoles region and serial which can be read from the Wii U mode.

Advanced options
This lets you manually configure what should be redownloaded

Troubleshooting
  • Error 105-3102 when trying to update
    Restart your console and go back into System Settings
    Now do the update again
  • Error 160-0101 on startup
    Remove any inserted disc and remove any connected harddrives

After I used this tool, I installed the homebrew channel and cIOS's for USB Loader GX. After I install the cIOS, the homebrew channel won't boot and if I try to play a game from a disc it goes straight back to the vWii system menu
