RiiTag is a customizable and dynamic gamertag. By sharing your gamertag (a dynamic image), you can show what you’ve been playing to your friends! You launch a plugin on your Wii U console via Aroma, and the tag updates on-the-fly.
What you need
- A device capable of interacting with SD cards
- Softmodded Wii U console with Aroma custom firmware
- If you have not softmodded your Wii U yet, please do so. You cannot proceed without.
- A Discord account
- The latest release of the UTag plugin
Previously, UTag allowed using other custom firmware (often abbreviated as CFW), but the only supported custom firmware, and the only one you should be using, is Aroma.

Do not share your RiiTag key with anyone! If you do, people can abuse your tag.
Section II - Setting things up on the SD card
- Extract the UTag file to
/wiiu/environments/aroma/pluginson your SD card. If it doesn’t exist, create it.
/wiiu/on your SD card, create a file called
utag.txtand paste your RiiTag key from the previous step into it.
Section III - Running the plugin
You don’t need to manually run the plugin - just run Aroma and it will automatically be loaded. We recommend setting up Aroma for coldbooting so the plugin gets loaded automatically when you boot the console.
You have now set up RiiTag on your Wii U! Now go play some games, and watch them show up on your RiiTag!
