    Hello guys and girls just after some advice here, I've currently just got my hands on a Wii U which is on firmware 5.5.1E, how would i go on about installing a kernel exploit? If there is one available for the firmware, I've installed the homebrew channel onto a sd card and that boots up straight away by entering the mii maker, I've searched all over the place for specific guides etc and everything's just a complete mess so I've given up on looking, any help for the noobie will be appreciated =)

    I've got loadiine to boot also by placing it's contents onto the sd but haven't gotten around to trying backups has of yet (heard it requires a kernel exploit) Just need some input to how i go with all this

    I'm struggling so hard to understand.
    You want some advice for loading backups using loadiine?

    If you can launch loadiine, you can already use backups, the kernel exploit had been installed the first time you seen the illuminati image, IIRC.

    If you can launch homebrew launcher and loadiine, you already have the kernel exploit (it's bundled with the latest Loadiine and Homebrew Launcher www packages as they require it to boot)
    You just need some games in the right format and in the right folder on the SD card and they should just work.

    Here's a little guide on setting up games for Loadiine that I wrote previously:

    This guide will take you though blocking updates from Nintendo to getting the Homebrew Channel up and running, complete with 5.5.1 compatible homebrew apps to get you started: Easy Nintendo Wii U 2.1.0 to 5.1.1 Homebrew Channel Hack Guide

    It looks like someone has explained how to get games up and running earlier in this thread.

    It gets old very quickly seeing a newbie make YET ANOTHER one if THESE threads. Threads like these are literally made every other day and are only one of the problems plauging the temp today. Furthermore, you asked for help in a section called 'tutorials'. If you don't see a problem with that then i can't help you. Finally I see no reason to help a user when a few threads below his is a thread called 'How to use Loadiine for Noobies'.

    Does this mean, if i want to use SDCafiine for example in SmashU, i just have to launch the kernel exploit once and then no more time again? Even after a shutdown?
    And what would happen, if my WiiU decides to update?

    Ah. I understand now. You're new to forums aren't you? In cases like these, you're supposed to post on the tutorial I referenced above staring that you're having problems. Also, you're not supposed to post in the wrong section. The tutorial section in particular is an annoying place to post as it'll stay on the home page of the site until enough real tutorials (or more threads like these) replace it.
