    As title says: Why is still wiiu format needed and fat32 can not be used for installing games? Can signpatch etc. Not allow to read data from fat or NTFS? Is there currently any Research done in this way?

    1. It's hard to make a mod that can do it
    2. No, there is only 1.

    Ok, thanks. I thought that wiiu format is already reverse engineered (as ddd etc. Is working) and therefore, as fat32/ntfs is known, a mod would be quite easy. And as there is already access to any title i just thought everithing needed is known.
