Iv had my wii U for a while now but havent updated it exept for the first update. I did this because I had the xbox360 and ps3 in mind, where updates ruined the moding process.
Im now thinking about moding it, or atleast make it stream movies with plex media server. Should I update it to the newest, or are there any indications that I should wait? Also is there a way to manualy update to an not so new update?
the sept. 2013 update will cause a 4:3 aspect ratio bug with the HBC. should be fixed when new HBC is released. there is a link for a fix in first post.

Started it up now after sitting for 4 months, and behold I have a memory issue... Need to take it back to the shop...
Hi, i'm so newbie, is the guide on the fist page still works on wii u updated to 4.0.2? Will lego batman for wii and not for wii u works? so sorry i'm new on wii u. :)
ok im racking my brain guys, recently got a wii u,running 4.0.2 and of course first thing i find is this wonderful site saying you can softmod your vWII side of it.. AWESOME i think.. find lego indiana jones at local gamestop and grab 2 pack of 2gb sd cards, download files and plan for a easy time.. load files of hackmii. start game and load file, go to art room and... goes into hackmii menu, keeps saying no sd card found no gecko found hanging etc...
tried a couple times with same results...
so i ask for your help.. what i think may be wrong, and please correct me or throw any idea out there...
1. i did not have my own save game file before copying (not sure if necessary or if that can be bypassed)
2. realized that my 2 pack of 2gb sd cards (PNY from walmart) are actually 4gb but labeled as 2gb (normally wouldnt that be a good thing lol) but i partitioned 1 down to about 750mb in fat16 as primary (not logistic)..
im figuring its the card actually being larger than a 2gb is whats hurting me, but then again i am known to be wrong on easier thing lol
again current wii u firmware is 4.0.2 (damn auto updating lol)
thanks for any and all help.
Yeah, sorry. It has to be a real 2gb sd card, no cheating (ie Mini via adapter, 2gb via format partitioning etc etc). I recommend checking eBay or Amazon for an authentic 2GB San Disk ;)
You should also use FAT32 format.
Hey I'm new to the wii u scene. Good tutorial.
I want to know whic usb loaders support EXT/2/3 hdd format and play games well? maybe CFG USB Loader...what else?
I only care about Wii and Wii U games (later).
The more popular loaders are included in the app pack for the guide. If they "didn't play well," they'd not be in this guide.
thats what i was kinda figuring, going by the size of the files is there a minimum of sd card, i found a 256mb sandisk on ebay for 1.04 (couldnt pass up for price even if it dont work) but judging by the size of the files it seems to be plenty, or does it need to be bigger for nand dumps etc (not even sure if wii does that, use to modding other consoles)
