    Coldbooting is just horrible... I've just screwed up my own WiiU cause I didn't remember the whole process, which I did 5 years ago, and my God, is immensely annoying and full of details and I will not even try to understand what I did, cause there are so many actions I could have done using this damn thing and would've given me the same result! The worst jailbreak EVER! I agree that someone should've already made it more user-friendly! Guess Switch's arrival overshadowed WiiU on that... In any case, I do not recommend, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, because YES it is great to have, on the fly CFW, but have you just don't remember a step, ONE STEP, and you lose the whole videogame, BRICK IT .. do not lose access, do not lose your save files or delete all the files from HD, or whatever, anything stupid like that - it would be a massive pain, but still could fix it - NO ... YOU LOSE THE VIDEOGAME IT SELF! That's ridiculous @ last 2019... Sorry for my outburst :sad: lost my WiiU

    The convinience is NOT worth the risk it costs! You have to, like, memorize what you can and cannot do whilst on coldboot, memorize the install and uninstall process AT HEART.. and keep forever that feeling that something bad is gonna happen... no, sorry, that's not life!

    what? no lol after installing and setting autoboot to Sysmenu that is it lol, you dont need to memorize anything lol, latest cbhc prevents you from deleting the app or overwritting it so the only way to brick is to format your wiiu lol, so no the only thing you need to remenber is dont format your wiiu.

    Darn, I can't come up with something edgy
    Older coldboothax versions were more dangerous. Even still it is to some degree. Such as formatting the wiiu. I do hope that someone does work on the boot1 exploit. But for the meantime coldboothax will have to suffice, but at this point it's pretty difficult ish to brick.
