Yeah, yeah – I can hear most of you shouting at the screen now.
“What’s this? I hacked my Wii U ages ago! Heck, I’ve almost completed LOZBOTW already!!”
Well, some folks are having problems so I thought I’d throw in the guide I used – and if it helps just one person then my job here is done.
I take zero credit for anything included in the below link
The guide is a transcript of a video posted on YouTube with some minor alterations
~ a HUGE thank you goes to BaCkuPFDTos ~
The files were obtained via links in the YouTube video description – all I did was download them then upload them to my own MEGA account
Apparently this will allow you to download and play games from any region – though to date I have only downloaded EUR games, but so far every one of them has worked. No messing about with tickets !!!
All the files you need are included in the link below – total size 12.2 MB
You will need to provide the following –
Wii U on firmware 5.5.1 with internet connection
A virtual console (VC) game from the Nintendo Eshop
External HDD ~ should have its own power supply and be no bigger than 2 TB
SD card ~ minimum 16 GB / recommend normal size card – micro SD cards sometimes do not work
Program to extract archives – e.g. 7Zip or ALZip
The process is quite lengthy ……….
first you download the game and any available update / dlc to your PC
then you copy everything from your PC to your SD card
then you transfer everything from your SD card to the HDD
………. but what you end up with are the games loaded on the main menu of the Wii U
Some words of wisdom
It does say in the guide that your Wii U MUST be clean and on firmware 5.5.1
If you have already messed with other hacks or custom firmwares I cannot guarantee this will work for you
Obviously, I accept no responsibility if anything does go wrong
As I said at the beginning of my post, I hope this helps at least one person – have fun and enjoy !
