    OK, my vWii is successfully homebrewed and I am running my favorites games off of a 64GB thumb drive. All is good with the world.

    I have also successfully put Homebrew on my Wii U, but now what? I do not have a lot of hard drive space.

    I installed an externaql usb hard drive and the Wii U formatted. But other that eshop games installing on it (which I cannot afford), I want more.

    How do I get eshop games that I download to play from the external hard drive?

    somewhere
    The sigpatch2sysnand tool will let you run eShop titles.

    (As will fw.img, rednand, coldboot haxchi, etc)

    I have never heard of these programs. Is there a website address and instructions anywhere?

    You can follow this to setup sysNAND CFW or redNAND, i'd advise redNAND, but it's your choice. It also has directions for haxchi and coldboothax.

    there are several options open too you , i suggest reading the forms a little here. or if you browse www.wiiubru.com/appstore each app has a small description and a link to the source , this may help you some.

    Down there
    just run mocha cfw and your set no extra setup required!
    http://www.wiiubru.com/appstore/#/app/appstore first get hb appstore from here open it with homebrew laucher and then download what you need, I recommend mocha cfw because of how well it works and the fact no setup is required, it even gets rid of the infamous orange blinking light bug

    Just have fun with it :). All Hackchi does is make it quicker to load up things, but in the end, it does the same thing really. (although I am not 100% about VC on RedNAND, i've not used my Wii U in awhile or downloaded anything for it. The external drive I was using was needed for a laptop backup). As long as you can play the games you are wanting to play and home-brew, that's what matters right? I don't understand all the fuss about Salt's CFW...not seeing anything yet and makes me wonder if it's just one of those "Coming Soon" things that never gets here....i mean, we were supposed to be getting a Wii U hack for Christmas....last year....

    There is no salt's solution, they gave up when community's solution surpased theirs.

    The deepest recesses of my mind
    Where was this? Twitter I'm guessing, but what was the exact quote?

    So, if Salt's out of the picture, what's the best option? Is RedNAND stable yet? And what's this MochaCFW?
