WiiU CFW a little bit closer

October 23, 2016 thezander 0

The guys at WiiuBru team got a little bit closer to cfw, by being able to boot a fw.img of the root of a SD card after booting a certain elf off HBL. They have been working on it pretty much in the public eye so a lot of the files being traded back and forth have made their way to different sites without full explanation so I feel like this thread was to clear everything up. That being said they probably also wanted to prevent bricks due to misuse and potentially a screwed up fw.img and they fully warn to not use this unless you have a good idea what you’re doing.


However! A “CFW Booter” is not useful without a modified fw.img file to use it with… Thanks to the effort of @smealum several months ago, and his release of iosuhax, making a fw.img with modified patches is as easy as reading and running his code. Anyone can do this now using the above booter, BUT if you use random fw.img’s lying around, that’s at your own risk.


They also built his wupserver client that was part of iosuhax which allows you to interact with your wiiu from the iosu side dump files. However they have not perfected the full NAND dump procedure yet, but actively getting closer to it.


As fw.img files are copyright Nintendo, we cannot provide them to you directly. Instead here are the instructions on how to make a wupserver fw.img, and here is a patch that you can apply to one downloaded from NUS. You can do this with the lates JNustool with We know these instructions aren’t great, but you can ask if you have questions. Just please /please/ stop running unfinished, dangerous “rednand fw.img’s”

Once you run the wupserver on your Wii U by placing that fw.img on the root of your SD and running our elf above, you can connect to it either with a modified version of smea’s or the new that was developed. Both are available here: . And if you hate python, a Java Gui version is on the way.


Also they heavily warn not to use random fw.img’s lying around that are not endorsed by them because they cannot speak to their legitimacy and potential for irreparable damage is unknown. Also they actively welcome people to come to them and work together on these things. They seem inclusive and would appreciate active contribution in the goal of making more tools.

    OTP Access Through IOSU Kernel By Donald_Trump

    October 15, 2016 GregoryRasputin 0

    With the name of the user that released this exploit, i thought we were looking at a troll or joke post, but it seems to be legit, though seems buggy at the moment.

     Here is a quote of what it actually does from the person who released the exploit:





    It contains encryption keys, which can be used for decryption, as well as some other unique per-console data. However, this proves that IOSU kernel access has been achieved and something has been done with it.
