    Ok , so the steps would be :

    Setup internet connection with DNS
    Do the browser exploit
    Install Haxchii
    Remove DNS
    Update
    The 5.5.2 update only removes the browser exploit and everything will stay intact ?

    So Haxchii takes the place of the browser exploit booting Homebrew Channel . Does it also have the functions of Mocha ( enabling WUP Installer ) ?
    Can i do the Backup System Nand as a last step ?
    Installing Homebrew Launcher as a channel will flag the console for banning ? I heard about WiiU bans , how did they happen ?

    Yup that would be the process. You can also get haxchi on 5.5.2 but the browser exploit is so unstable and a big pain to play with. It's best if you just get haxchi on 5.5.1 while you're there. Yup Haxchi is an alternate entrypoint into homebrew launcher. You can launch mocha, wup installer, etc. The boot rate is 100%, and it works offline.
    Yup 5.5.2 only patches the browser exploit but everything else is left untouched. You gain nothing by updating to 5.5.2 actually as everything works in 5.5.1. So it's just an OCD matter to want to update. You'll need to redo the DNS once on 5.5.2 in case of 5.5.3.

    Hello, I am new to this haxchi installment. I am on firmware 5.5.2E, and have done everything you have said on that section. I made as far as to install the Haxchii over the DS game Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training (E). Whenever i try to run the Haxchii app from my WiiU menu, I automatically get back to the main menu. What is wrong?

    Congratulations you now have haxchi, now here's how it works.
    When you launch it, it boots up HaxchiFW (It's very own CFW) which simply reboots to the home menu but with patches enabled.
    Now when you hold A while booting haxchi, you'll boot into Homebrew Launcher. Simple as that : p

    I'm pretty nooby when it comes to wiiu hacking so please go easy on me.
    My basic question: is it possible to hack a Japanese wiiu on 5.5.2? I'm not seeing any of the guides I've looked at mention anything about it.

    Short Answer? Yes. Supposedly.
    Long answer:
    You have to follow the same procedure than anybody on 5.5.2 as well: Buy a VC compatible game (Brain age). Get the files necessary to install Haxchi & HBC, run HBC by going to This page ; and then, installing haxchi into your system. The guide for 5.5.2 supposedly works in any language set on the system. Dunno if it's the same for the games, but since the games on DS were Multi language by themselves, there shouldn't be any trouble.

    Everything's on page 1 of this thread. Here's hoping that you don't find any troubles installing it.

    Quick Addendum: As @godreborn has linked, Otona no DS Training is in the list. You're good to go, @zoogie .

    Yeah that's what I'm going to do. I'm not concerned about language, I can just go by online guides or my own memory on what menus to select (I've done this on a US system before).
    It's just troubling no guide seems to explicitly mention the exploits working on JPN systems.

    when you launch haxchi with no buttons, it boots up Haxchi CFW. If you launch haxchi while holding A, it boots Homebrew Launcher.
    Did the black screen show any numbers such as -3 or -5?
