This is what happened to my friend's WiiU(Japanese version).
After tapping the "start" on the Wii U menu channel, the 12 grey Wii logo boxes flashed and reloaded the vWii SM.
His console is on latest FW, no vWii softmod, and he has never played any Wii games (including Wii disk eshop downloads).

Unplug, remove clock battery, wait 10 seconds, put everything back together, start Wii U.

Thanks. He can go back to Wii U by resetting anyway.
Now it seems worse. Only data management and Mii channel works. Wii Shop, Manual, System transfer channel all go back to the 12 Wii boxes and to the vWii SM.
I'm afraid that the vWii IOS for NAND loading broke?

I'd say he should try formatting the system from the Wii U system settings and try that. Of course, he'll lose all game data and saves. If it still doesn't work after that, then send it to repair to Nintendo.

He did, didn't solve the problem. And it's impossible to get an official Wii U repair in China. iQue won't give a crap.

Has your friend patched any vIOSs at all? (Not installing cIOSs, patching existing vIOSs)

Also, out of sheer curiosity, what the heck does an iQue Wii U look like? Is it the same as everywhere else, or does it have distinct differences like the "iQue Player"?

He and the person who sold it did no soft modding at all.
Nobody knows what a iQue Wii U looks like since it does not exist at all now. What I said is that iQue has no Wii U so it cannot repair one. Also, Wii U seems to be very unpopular here so almost no one cares to repair it.

Also, thank you for the facepalm gift.

Lol well that explains why I couldn't find a picture anywhere, I guess!

Yeah, if it isn't soft/hardmodded, there's not much I can do to help :/ I know shipping is weird in China, but would it be possible to call Nintendo tech support/send it out of country for repairs?...

I can answer that, it's a straight no. Nintendo's limited warranty is only valid in the country of purchase and through authorized service providers. In China that's iQue and if iQue doesn't care, then the user is SOL.

Hm... Well, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try contacting iQue, just in case...
