    This will still be the fastest way.

    You can use ftp to transfer to your sd card, but it's much slower. I heard there's a way to use your hdd as an sd card, but that it's just emulating the sd card protocols so it's just as slow.

    as slow to install, but maybe faster to copy files to it from a computer and more space to store more games at once to install.

    though, there are some limitation :
    1. you need to use Mocha 0.3 beta first, which has FAT32 USB support but has a bug which mounts the USB as SD. thanks to that bug, WUP Installer can see USB while it mounts the SD.
    2. You can't use ANOTHER USB ! you can't have 1 FAT32 + 1 WiiU HDD.
    3. therefore, you can't install to USB directly. You need to install the game to internal console memory, reboot and move the game to USB if you want it there.

    I also heard that you need to delete format nag manually.
    Is that true?

    When using the mocha beta, and IF you have the "/usr" folder on the root of your FAT32 partition, the WiiU consider it as WiiU formatted and shouldn't nag that it's FAT32.
    I don't know if mocha is hidding the format nag (I think it does) or if it's required to have /usr/ folder.

    I think Mocha is the one patching that nag screen, as it was asked in haxchi thread if Fix94 could add the same patch to prevent using UStealth for vWii.

    I never tried the mocha beta, I didn't have time to do man tests yet.

    You don't need /usr, as it will be created/populated automatically. If someone is seeing the nag after running Mocha beta, it's probably because they have "Don't relaunch OS" set to On in Mocha's config screen. (or they formatted the drive with larger than 64K clusters - I think there's something like that in the error messages in the source.)

    If "Don't relaunch OS" is on, you can enter and exit Settings to mount the drive.

    I didn't see anything about patching the nag in the source. There shouldn't be a need for it.

    I can't believe people use CBHC as a verb.

    That was my only post in this topic. Whichever the case google is more widely acceptable, trying to make a verb out of anything is trying too hard to be a special snowflake.

    that's a thing I like in English, we can make anything a verb!
    it feels less awkward than verbalizing* a french word, probably because English it's not my mother tongue.

    * verbalizing is not the correct meaning, but it looked perfect to create a verb from that word

    /offtopic sorry :P
