Pinky’s Wii-U Tutorials ★ How To Self-Host Your Own Files ★ Note: Mongoose is no longer the preferred method of hosting your own files. I don't believe it works on 5.5.1 due to lack of php support. Xampp is now the preferred method. Drop your hosted files (link down below) in a folder named Wii-U, and then drop that folder in xampp/htdocs. On your Wii U, go to the browser and type in your laptop/pc's ip address followed by Wii-U (i.e. xxx.xxx.x.xxx/Wii-U). That's it. Enjoy. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Download these two rar files: For SD Card and For PC. Note: These are not my files, but I'm hosting them for this tutorial. Also, download the free version of Mongoose. Extract the contents of the "For SD Card" rar file to your SD card, and extract the contents of the "For PC" rar file to your computer. "For PC" can go anywhere. Keep the "For SD Card" contents in the same folders - wiiu/apps . Install "Mongoose." Once it's installed, open it. Right-click its icon, and select advanced settings. Now, change the port to anything above 10000. Note: Not changing the port from 8080 could cause a conflict with other apps including Vita Update Blocker and ccproxy. Now, select "Set shared directory" and point it to the location you placed the "For PC" content. Now, insert your sd card into your Wii-U. Once the console has booted up, go into the Internet Browser and type your ip address (192.168.x.xxx) followed by a : along with the port you selected in Mongoose's advanced settings: Example Code: 192.168.1.130:12345 You should now be in the homebrew channel where you can select other elf files (apps) such as loadiine and saviine. Enjoy! ★ How To Block Wii-U Updates ★ One of the irritating aspects of the wii-u is that it updates automatically. Here's a tutorial on how to bypass that. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 Step 9 Step 10 Download ccproxy from its official website. Open ccproxy and click on options to check the http port being used. You may change the port if you wish, but I left it at 808 to prevent any conflicts. Close the options menu, and click on account. In the permit category section, make sure it says permit only. For auth type, select mac address. Now, click on web filter. Select new. Now, name the web filter. Make sure site filter and forbidden sites is selected. In the box below, copy and paste this: Code: cbvc.cdn.nintendo.net;*.cdn.shop.wii.com;*.wup.shop.nintendo.net;*.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.deploy.s These are the nintendo update servers. Select save and close web filter.. Now, you should still be in the account tab. Select new. Name your new account. Type in the mac address of your wii-u (mac sure mac address/host name is enabled). Check web filter. Select the web filter that you created. Now, click save and ok to close the new account. On your wii-u, select internet connections in the system settings tab. Select the default options until you get to proxy. In the proxy section, select use. Now, type in the ip address of your computer. You can find this by going into command prompt and typing Code: ipconfig /all Next, select the port that you created in the options section. Now, test if it worked by looking at the download notifications section of the home menu. It should say not downloads finished downloading with a red x over it. You can click on the download notification section to see that system updates have failed to download. It will say this whether or not a new system update is available. You should still be able to access the internet to use the race attack hack for loadiine, saviine, etc. Enjoy! ★ How To Delete A Fake Ticket ★ Something that can be frustrating about the way licenses (.tik) work for the Wii U is the fact that they're not deleted when deleting a game. Also, many tickets are found in the same .tik file. I remember when I was doing this for the first time, Lucadian Chronicles, the game I was trying to get rid of the fake ticket for, was lumped in with a Sonic game. lol This tutorial will fix this and possibly prevent cbhc bricks from not testing the bought game on cfw. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 First, download tik2sd from here: Code: https://github.com/FIX94/tik2sd/releases Next, open the homebrew launcher using your favorite entry point Run tik2sd. This may take a few moments, so give it some time. Afterwards, you should have a file named: keys.txt, along with your tickets, in the tik2sd folder on the root of your sd card. Now, lookup the title id for the game you want to delete the fake ticket for. You can obtain this from a title key site which I can't give the name of due to it containing copywritten material on it. After you find the .tik with the fake ticket for the game you want to remove, check the size. If it's 696 or 848 bytes, there's only one ticket in it, so you can safely delete the .tik from: Code: storage_slc/rights/tickets/apps Use ftpiieverywhere to do this. And, make sure it's the ftpiieverwhere for your situation (i.e. coldboot haxchi ftpiieverywhere or normal ftpiieverywhere). Remember the location as well which can be found in the tik2sd folder on the root of your flash drive. If the size is larger, open the ticket in a hex editor such as HxD: Code: https://mh-nexus.de/en/downloads.php?product=HxD Now, you can find which ticket and which .tik file it is based on the keys.txt, so once inside, you'll know if a ticket is at, for example. offset 0 or offset 350, etc. Also, each new ticket file starts with: Code: 00 01 00 04 This is important if say you have a fake and legit ticket at the same time. tik2sd won't tell you this. Now, either delete the one ticket (in hex) from the .tik file or, if there's more than one, compare the two. If there's a repeating pattern with one of them over and over again near the beginning (00 01 00 04), that's your fake ticket. It might say "DISEASED ISABELLA" in hex many times. That's what mine said anyway. Delete it. Now, transfer the .tik to: Code: storage_slc/rights/tickets/apps followed by the folder location you found in tik2sd. Now, test to see if it works by trying to play the game without cfw. This should help people with cbhc or other haxchi errors or even if you were using a fake ticket, but now want to buy the game to use haxchi (can't with a fake ticket or it will fail install). Good luck. Thanks to Madridi for teaching me how to do this. Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage you may cause to your Wii-U. Just follow the instructions, and you’ll be fine!
