    Since you're not running Haxchi at this point, you're better off looking for help in that thread. Basically, you'll have to put Mocha on your SD, use the browser exploit to run Homebrew Launcher, Run Mocha, tell it Skip menu Off, Show image Off, Don't relaunch OS ON, Launch System Off, redNAND Off. Press A. Then run ftpiiu_everywhere.

    If I move the DS VC icon (CHBC icon) into a sysNAND folder, will I brick my console?

    I mean, I have the game in the home menu, but I want to hide it in a folder, is that possible without a brick?

    cbhc affects sysNAND, so yes, there's a chance of brick if u mess up the cbhc title. u can't boot the required file from redNAND unfortunately.

    And, last thing, does Haxchi have any chance of bricking my Wii U? (Not CBHC)

    cbhc is only dangerous if you're careless. beforehand/while installing cbhc, you can even be lost when the game is modified. I don't know if that's the case though. however, I copied the game before installation (don't move it afterwards), so my cbhc game says "redNAND" and has the unique icon I had before, so it doesn't say "do not touch" or have the cbhc icon. uninstalling - the game works like before as haxchi. I've tested this. :) you can always uninstall cbhc if you feel the risks are too great...just run the installer again.

    btw, the reason I think the wii u works this way is that you can actually "copy" a game rather than just "moving" it. the usb seems to take priority, so I can have both cbhc and haxchi installed at the same time using the same title.

    good idea. I'm the only one who messes with my wii u, so I don't have that problem. it only saves a few seconds anyway.

    They're just there so we don't get blamed if you're too incompetent to follow simple instructions. Every Wii U hack has brick potential if you can't follow instructions. I'll never understand the fear behind CBHC

    Well I never understand the necessity to save time on booting a console and trying to get homebrew quicker, with the web exploit it a little longer, with haxchi is shorter and doesn't require web browser, and with CBHC is instant. So I guess I can understand what you mean about not understanding the fear behind CBHC. :unsure:

    I don't have a problem clicking the icon to get homebrew, I been doing it since my PSP had access to PRO CFW. Yes I know is better to save time but 10 seconds isn't big deal to me but others. :P

    The fear (For me) is that someone else who uses my Wii u will move the app or delete it
