    When you break a bit from modding you tend to forget what stuff is. That seems to be a tiny bit of the case here, but I am sure someone can help me out. I just want to cleanup my SD card a bit before I start backing up some more games. I had some dumps and old wads on it I cleanedup but there are other files I am not to sure of.

    1) boot.elf at the root of my sd card (I am guessing it might have to do with HackMii/HBC for the vWii)

    2) sd:/wiiu/payload.elf (I think this is for the browser exploit)

    and lastly

    3) sd:/wiiu/apps/wuphax.elf (I think this is a game installer but I already have WUP installer so I don't know why there is this elf file sitting in the apps folder)

    IK IK I totally forgot what these are WAT ARE THEM

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure its the HackMii installer.

    Yes, this file is loaded by the 5.5.2+ browser exploit.

    Wuphax is used to install the Homebrew Channel in vWii mode from the Wii U side. If you have the Homebrew Channel installed on your vWii, and your vWii's Mii Channel works correctly, then you do not need to have this anymore.

    Nah, can always reinstall it via wad (great excuse to upgrade to the full version bundled with regular Wiis too) :)
