    Frappuccino CFW

    Estimated release date:
    Christmas (12/25/16); Might be delayed.

    This is a fork of Mocha CFW by Dimok. This CFW is ment to be for more complex users, and will have more features and further support. As well as some additions from redNAND and other homebrew.

    NOTE: This is by no means completed, and a Release will be compiled within the next two weeks.
    I am actively working upon this project, and hope to see it grow. The features are not final, and some may be added/removed. Currently, there's only changes to the menu.c and other files. There's no major changes that are on Github, but I am (again) working on this very actively.
    Please check Dimoks Mocha CFW and thank him for his work! Even though his project is quite young, I wanted to create a more complex, advance, and well supported CFW.

    ~I love the Puniness of the names in the Wii U Community x3


    Features:
    Mocha Features

    • fw.img for redNAND support. But, is optional as a custom firmware.
    • sysNAND or redNAND patching in one application, selected/saved in the settings.
    • SEEPROM redirection to/from SD card.
    • OTP redirection from SD card for a custom launch image; upon load of the custom firmware if it exists on sd card (sd:/wiiu/apps/mocha/launch_image.tga)
    Frappuccino Features (Planned, but not Final)

    • Custom fw.img support (IMG not provided, and custom as in modifications will be allowed)
    • Allows the injection for Virtual Console (Most likely will be a feature for SimpliiU rather than this CFW)
    • Disables and patches signiture checks, to allow custom Applications (Already integrated into the application)
    • More system modifications
    • Easy setup (Step by step setup)
    • System Update blocking
    • Automatic updates for the CFW Application (Updates the Homebrew only, not you CFW.)
    • redNAND Support (Integrated into this CFW)
    • System Config Tool will be preinstalled
    • Allow on the fly cheat code injection
    • Allow on the fly mod injection as well as patch/dlc injection
    • Install any Application, Update, DLC, and/or Game (Using WUPInstaller, will be integrated)
    • Allow the ability to launch Loadiine directly from the system menu (As a channel)
    • Allow the ability to change the region of your system, if using EmuNAND; for example, change the region from USA to JPN in order to download software from Japan. NOTE: eShop only!
    • Region free Disk and Software support
    DO KEEP IN MIND: This software is based off of Dimoks Mocha CFW; I take no credit for his work. This software is not finished, and is still actively being worked on!

    Credits:
    This software is licensed under the Open GNU GPL v2 license agreement. A copy of the license is on Github.

    @dimok for his work on Mocha @FIX94 @vmgoose And other users such as the redNAND Team and many others.

    I mean the 3DS CFW scene is dead and the Wii U seems to be the happening place to get into some new CFWs.

    Ah, I understand what you mean. That's also sadly true.

    As of now, no. I'm still working on this, but I didn't want to bother renaming the thread in the future.

    I'm pretty sure Mocha already has region-free built-in. Also, isn't having System Config Tool pre-installed copyright infringement?

    Region free, yes it does. But, some features may be removed and/or added. So, maybe pre-installing System Config tool isn't the best thing. Thanks for your concern.

    Thanks for making those points; I shall address them:

    1. Custom fw.img support as in allowing users to modify them, not to distrubute them. A fw.img will NOT be provided.
    2. I'm aware that mocha is capable of doing so (Disabling sig checks)
    3. I'm making it easier for users to get setup, step by step.
    4. Somehow I'm going to make a automatic update feature, but I meant for the application rather than the actualy FW.
    5. Not sure if you're questioning the ability that mocha is capable of installing titles, but you need to use WUPInstaller; but Mocha disables Sig checks to allow installing custom software
    6. Like the HBL Channel; I'm going to compile a premade Loadiine Channel, unless someone makes one.
    7. Sorry, I should address it as eShop Only.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Guess I'm not the only one to have a similar idea. x3

    Loadiine is far from useless.

    1) The only way to load modified games. For example, the UNDUB version of Xenoblade Chronicles X
    2) Ability to use VC injected games without a donor game required.
    3) Supports standard file systems such as FAT32, rather than being forced to use Nintendo's encrypted system.

    The main thing Loadiine needs is USB support so we can use FAT32 USB hard drives.

    I may work with @dimok on that, I've heard that someone HAS ported the fatlib for usb support; correct?

    The setup is exactly the same as Mocha, so yes.

    So these are planned features and no features? Or did I get it wrong?

    I like the puns as well. But let's be honest, credits goes to Nintendo for code naming the CPU inside the WiiU Espresso (even though Ninty had Renesas combine it onto a single board with the GPU, thereby creating a custom IBM/AMD APU).
