For this guide to work, use an SD card that’s at least 8GB.
Insert your “clean” SD card into your PC. Copy all the folders in the“SD” file you downloaded into the root folder of your SD card. You should see four folders, namely “cbhc”, “haxchi”, “private”, “sdcafiine”, and “Wii u”. If any of this is missing, try checking if the file was downloaded correctly.
On your SD card, open the folder called “sdcafiine”, then the next one named with a series of numbers and one F, and finally the “content” folder. The content folder should be empty.
As a side note: Ensure to change the TITLE ID of the‘alphanumeric named folder’ to your region code. Simply put, rename the folder with your region code. You can find the region codes above.
Next, open the ModPack file you downloaded, open the next folder with alphanumeric Id. Now, you should see three folders titled “movie”, “patch”, and “sound”. Copy all these folders and dump them into the “content” folder of your SD card.
Note: copying may take time, so be patient.
Eject the SD card from your computer. This is important, so your mod won’t get messed or damaged.
On your Wii U console, go to the internet browser and visit http://u.drg.li. You can bookmark this page if you wish. After the page loads, click on the link that says “go here if you want to try a new faster version”, then click “Exploit”.
Wait for it load. You might have to try a couple of times. Once it loads, you’ll be taken to the homebrew page. Select“SDcafiine” and then click “Load”. This should take you back to the Wii U menu. It might take about 2 – 5 minutes for your smash 4 mod to load.
