    with haxchi and github.com/dimok789/iosuhax
    use make cfw-coldboot

    config.txt
    Code:
    default=fw.img
    
    syshax.xml
    Code:
    <default_title_id type="hexBinary" length="8">0005001010040200</default_title_id>
    
    change 0005001010040200 to the title id of your game

    Is this then persistant or can it be removed easily? If so, whats the disadvantage? Why "none" uses autoboot for haxchi with sysnand / rednand hack? Is there a high brick risk?

    There is a moderate risk, aka do not do this unless you know what you are doing.

    AFAIK is a high brick risk as we have to edit a .xml file which is completely essential to boot the wii u. If for some reason we make a typo or delete the installed vc game the console will brick. I was hoping that there was some sort of method in which we could boot into rednand and if for some reason the channel get deleted or the file get corrupted we could boot normally as "in boot to rednand if channel not found then boot to wii u sys menu"

    if you're really worried about that, if you install haxchi into a ds vc title, you can boot it up with the built-in wii u quicklauncher. That's what i use.
