    Hello i just wanted to give some advise to the people who are trying to get the DS game to install haxchi from the eShop:

    I have noticed that a lot of people have issues with downloading the Game while the update for the console is in the download queue .

    What i did was:

    1.- Open Homebrew Launcher (web exploit)
    2.- Load Mocha
    3.- Open Homebrew Launcher again
    4.- Load NNU patcher
    5.- Enter the E-shop and download your game.

    In this way the update won't appear in the downloads queue and you can download your game without any issues.

    After that just download the Haxchi files, put them on your SD card and launch the installer with Homebrew Launcher.

    I hope this information helps someone. Thank you for reading.

    So you're saying this is an alternate fix for the unplugging method? I don't see how running mocha would make a difference

    I think he's saying you can use mocha to avoid the update while you download a ds title to be able to install haxchi.

    I don't know how it works, and i'm sorry about that. But when i used MOCHA the update didn't appear on the download queue. It directly downloaded the game for me.

    I also have a fix for installing you DS game:
    Just finished downgrading. I paid my $7 bucks for Brain Age. Couldn't get it to finish. If you click on Download Management, you will see the update to 5.5.2 (it won't say this but you can just assume) with a X, because you most likely have it blocked via DNS. Just click on the update and you will be presented with a option to delete content. (I don't remember actually what it said.) Delete and your ds game will download and install.

    Does every EUR account get Brain Training free, or just ones made a while ago? Cos I made an account just for testing and got Brain Training free

    Yes I have a 3DS, but I made a new NNID, so I don't see how that would affect anything.

    I put you down for providing a tip in the Downgrade guide to check to see if you got Brain Training for free.

    I had the same thing happen. Is yours a second hand bought wii u? If so i think it's probably saving the game ticket or so on the console itself. not account linked. So the previous owner got it.

    I had just erased the Wii U, it had HaxChi on it before, but with a different game, and I was testing some stuff.

    This failed update shows up even when you're on 5.5.2, it doesn't specifically mean that this is the 5.5.2 update. It just means it failed to check for system updates so it gives you a failed update regardless.
    For so long now when 5.5.1 has been the latest, we've always been getting that failed update.

    I'm pretty sure it's not as simple as just deleting the failed update from download management.

    It really was that simple. The button for delete is there. Surprised me as well.

    Hmm .
    If the game was paid on eshop, it's just possible to install it with WUP without a ticket, and if the game boots without any kind of sigpatcher, it's fine to install Haxchi and CBHC, right ?

    @Mat37 Yes that is correct, as long as it's one of those DS games on the list, you can install Haxchi. Verify that Haxchi works, then install CBHC on top of haxchi. (I didn't realize after $7 bucks later, the Haxchi install was smooth as butter.)
