Would it be possible to develop an application that loads installed titles with illegitimate DLC?

    I'm curious if anyone (possible a developer) knows if it would be possible to create something similar to Loadiine, but with the ability to launch games installed either legitimately or through the Brazilian method, so that you could use illegitimate DLC with installed titles.

    Sorry if that sounds confusing, I tried to word that as simply as I could.

    It's already made and it's called rednand.

    I wouldn't recommend it even if it is stable. Plus it requires 64 GB sd which op might not have

    It's very stable and easy to set up and only three bricks have happened and they were all user error (two of the bricks happened through stupidity beyond all belive. Plus the op only needs a 64gb card if their wiiu is a 32gb model if it's a 8 gb model a 16gb card works. Plus if the op needs a new SD card nothing stopping them buying one SD cards are mega cheep these days.

    I would wait for salts tools which have compression and proper tools. The current rednand requires an illegal file to install and unistall games

    Well that's a pointless argument saying it needs illegal files when it let's you illegally obtain games just like salts tools will and just like the op is looking to use illegally obtained dlc.

    I was just stated that their is no legal tool to install games. And what about people who want to legally run homebrew from their homemenu

    I am fully aware about redNAND. I'd prefer not to use it just for this one purpose though as it would be overcomplicating things.

    As far as I know, redNAND doesn't have coldboot, so you still rely on the same hack to launch it.

    It's not exactly very user-friendly, deterring many users from wanting to compile Python scripts or files using CLI-based programs, I'll wait for SALT to release their tools, hopefully consolidating the process to be less confusing. The other problem is you have to boot it up every time you use it; if Coldboot is feasible, that will help tremendously.

    Thanks, but someone has already showed me AOC Patcher, which looks to be a much better solution once it comes out anyway.

    Exactly but the op does not want rednand for some reason.

    Because I have no desire to take up 32GBs of space on my SD setting up redNAND just to use 2GBs of DLC. That's why.

    It's better to wait to have SALT's tools for NAND compression and simplifying the set up guides.

    That's useless to me because that's still only for games on the SD card. I've installed all my games with the Brazilian method.

    Once again I say, AOC Patcher appears to be the best solution for me. No further responses are required.
