    *This program is intended for backups, Myself and Staff here do not condone piracy!*
    ~Am still updating this thread this pictures~
    WORKS AS OF 5/23/2018 on kernal 5.5.2
    Tools Needed:
    1. Homebrew Enabled Wii U
    2. SD Card
    3. These 2 files which will be attached at the bottom of the thread
    4. OPTIONAL: A USB HDD

    Keep in mind I am writing this with belief that you have had your Wii U exploited for at least a day and know how your navigate your exploited console.

    Step 1:

    Insert the SD card into your PC, It should be in fat32 format.
    Open the "wup_installer_gx2.zip" and copy the folder "wiiu" from the zip over to the ROOT of the SD card, if you get a message asking to replace existing files, select yes.

    Step 2:
    Open the "FreeShopWIIU.rar" and extract the uTikDownloadHelper (1).exe file to your computers desktop, then run the program (run the program with administrator rights if the program does not open).

    Step 3:
    On your computer web browser go to "http://wiiu.titlekeys.gq/", from this website you will need to find the backup of your game.
    I find holding Ctrl then press "f" on the keyboard to use the search feature is very helpful.
    **IMPORTANT** MAKE SURE THE GAME YOU CHOOSE IS IN YOUR REGION, ALSO IT HAS TO SAY ESHOP/APPLICATION!

    When you have found the backup you are after, click the Green download button on the far right, a file named "title.tik" will download.

    Step 4:
    Go back to the Freeshop appliction you opened up on Step 2, select the option Open Ticket, and select the file you just downloaded.

    A new window will appear, make a new folder on your desktop, name it accordingly and press ok, now check all the boxes that are not grayed out. Select Download. The game is now downloading, so wait for it to show 100% complete

    Step 5:
    Now go to your SD card that should still be connected to your PC, create a folder on the root of the SD card and name it "install", if you name it anything else this will not work.

    Go to the folder on your desktop where the game downloaded. You will see 1 or more folders with long names, that is good, copy these folders and paste them inside the "install" folder on the root of the SD card.
    Congrats! This is the end of the PC part!
    **EJECT YOUR SD CARD AND PUT IT INSIDE YOUR WII U**

    Step 6:
    On the Wii U load up the Homebrew Launcher, look for the application "WUP installer GX2" and launch that.

    You will see on screen that there are the game files that you downloaded, select on the right side, " select all" then select "install", a new menu will appear with 2 options,

    NAND
    USB

    You can install the games into your NAND where your games would normally install if you got the game from the ESHOP.
    If you have a USB hard drive plugged into your console, you can select the USB option.
    Select the option that is right for you and the install process will do its thing.
    When everything is installed it will tell you to press ok, most of the time when you press ok your Wii U will crash, so just hold the power button till it turns off and turn it back on.

    And thats it!
    You will now see that on your main screen the game you installed will be there waiting for you, without the need of a disc being in the system, which will greatly reduce wear and tear on your consoles laser.
    You can now plug your SD card into your PC again and open the "install" folder and delete the folders that are there.
    *If you get any errors while trying to install the game, make 100% sure you have available storage. If you select USB and do not have a USB plugged in, you will get an error*
