It's my first time here. I currently have a 4.1.0u Wii U with no CD games... I've search the forum here and I will tell you they are really helpful. But I'm just confused what the 1st step and have questions. 1. I noticed everyone is using 5.X.X now. Is hacking a 5.x.x the same method with 4.1.0u? 2. I don't have a Smash bros CD for hack.. is there an alternative? someone mentioned mii maker can be an alternative but I don't know anything more than that.. 3. fiveighteen mentioned in his thread that exploit is what I need to do first. I've already downloaded the homebrew launcherv1.2 RC3. do I still need to go to a website to run the exploit? 4. is there any thread that compiles all the files I need for hacking including the loadiine? 5. also is there a friendly tutorial here which has step by step and has links ready for the files needed?
