    Now Nintendo have implemented the new ticket checks onto the 3DS eShop who else thinks it's only a matter of time before it gets implemented into Wii U as well?

    I will be incredibly surprised if we don't get Wii U 5.6 by the end of 2018 killing off Wii USB Helper (and the other similar apps).

    Get your content downloaded and backed up now everyone.

    Given they've already ported it to 3DS and we know in terms of firmware 3DS & Wii U are actually very similar it won't be a huge investment for Nintendo to move the code over to Wii U.

    Nintendo will protect their property over profit any day of the week anyway. It's not like suing ROM sites is earning them anything yet they still did that.

    Does Wii U USB Helper still work even with the titlekeys website gone? Does it cache the keys?

    Well for me it doesn't work, it stuck on "usb helper is preparing the ticket cache" howewer , on w8 the cache is in the directory
    C:\Users\X\AppData\Roaming\USB_HELPER\tickets as for utikdownloader in C:\Users\X\AppData\Local\uTikDownloadHelper\cache\ticket.

    Darn, I can't come up with something edgy
    Actually the title key site isn't gone, it's just improperly placed. Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
    Open hosts file (you need to copy to desktop to open it)
    If you noticed the format it's ip and site name. (open with notepad++ or just notepad, recommend ++ though)
    Since I cannot talk about that title key site. I'll leave you to fill in the blanks. both use the same ip btw.
    4.2.2.1 consolenamehere.Forbiddenamehere.pf (the .pf is not the correct one. use your head)
    4.2.2.2 handheldnamehere.Forbiddenamehere.pf
    after doing so it should work. It's a screw up in the dns. Not much you can do about the dns incorrectly placing things. Also don't add a # or else it won't count.

    MOD: No linking to titlekey sites, that includes IPs. So I changed them to two root DNSes

    It's not worth their time to backport to dead systems.

    I don't know, this is Nintendo, the same company that decided to suddenly out of the blue update the wiiu. The same company that added more security to a console that is EOL. The same company that decided let's make another model of the 3ds, but this time it's NEW and it has no 3d at the end of the systems familys life.

    You can either use your tik cache file and use it as mentioned in usb helper:
    upload_2018-8-14_8-41-43.

    It's not impossible but the 3DS is still sold at retail in some form while the Wii U is dead.

    Only time can really tell.

    Well the url titles key site is reachable if you do the trick in the host but wiiu usb helper doesn't work anymore...even if you install it with this workaround...
    search on google "alternative_workaround_wii_u_usb_helper_without".

    Was that out of the blue? I thought most considered it a response to new EU privacy laws.

    I just tried to do it, and it works fine.

    I took USBhelper last version (not the recommended one) from reddit
    I took launcher from github (current version is v0.10)
    extracted both in the same folder
    I replaced IP in the hosts file (no need to copy to desktop .... and if you just copy to desktop there's no effect, you need to do it or replace the original file)
    launched the launcher (firewall asked to allow launcher.exe and patched.exe to act as server on my computer). I agreed, to get the proxy to redirect files from old website to the one on your computer.
    inserted the ticket website url when asked, it retrieved all the games from these urls without problem.
    I tried getting a WiiU game and a 3DS game, both worked.

    The launcher.exe and patched.exe randomly tries to access websites (old server's IP (104.31.8x.179) I just don't allow it, akamai is probably nintendo's CDN, but also other websites.... I don't give my entire trust to it and block access to these IP)
    It was only a test because people had issues above, but it works fine.

    when you say last version, do you mean this one: 0.6.156? 'cause it's getting stuck on preparing cache.

    Wii U USB Helper 0.6.1.653

    156 is old, and not even is the launcher's compatibility list.

    I used the first reddit link I found on google.
    note : I did NOT use and launched the host.json executable. I edited the hosts file manually.

    reddit title: DOWNLOAD AND RUN WII U USB HELPER AFTER ITS DISCONTINUATION
    it has links to that version, a link to a compatibility list with old versions (no 156 listed)


    or maybe you have "656" ? I've read 654 and 655 were released to counter usage of 653. be sure it's 653 you are using, or the "recommended version".

    reddit FAQ :

    maybe try that "clear install" option.
