Loadiine Wii U backup loader being ported to older firmwares
The popular Loadiine rom loader for the Wii U is being backported to older firmwares.
Initially released for Wii U firmware 5.3.2, Loadiine has now been ported by the GBATemp community to firmwares 4.1.0, 5.0.0, and 5.1.0 by different developers.
Depending on the port you use, Loadiine is now compatible with all these firmwares. In order to run Loadiine, you’ll need:
- Wii U FW 4.1.0/5.0.0/5.1.0/5.3.2
- SD(HC) Card
- (Optional) Super Smash Bros for Wii U (Disc or EShop version) – optional but may be needed for some games
You can find a list of compatible Loadiine roms on GBATemp.
Help, I’m on a different firmware, what do I do?
If your Wii U is above firmware 5.3.2, there’s not much you can do at this point. Hopefully the upcoming Wii U 5.5.0 exploit from Hykem will unblock you soon.
