    Yes I did. It worked well but my system kept freezing so decided to try a full reset. Oh dear.

    Well the system is trying to boot a title that doesn't exist anymore. you are bricked. CBHC has a ton of warnings say NOT to format

    Thanks. I figured as much but I thought I'd check. Looks like teardown for fun may be in order!

    AFAIK the brick code is 160-0103. What's your error says?

    No worries thanks for helping. I have one from Ebay which has always had the red blinking light issue (won't power on and Fan noise/Drive mech doesn't kick in) maybe I'll try and Frankenstein a working machine!

    PS: I had rednand, no use though right?

    Do you have an OTP dump? if so it might be possible to unbrick it with http://gbatemp.net/posts/7195109/

    I have OTP.c and OTP.h under Apps and BlueDumpmod (i believe this relates to vWii?)

    No worries, thanks. I don't recall backing up OTP but I do remember the rednand creation took a while (to clone Sysnand) but perhaps that isn't related.

    Did you format from redNAND or from sysNAND?
    If it's from redNAND, you can try mashing home button. [Right, formatting both can screw up everything]

    Sadly SysNAND. I was pretty sure the console freezing was due to a hardware fault anyway as it would often do it on the main menu. I foolishly thought formatting Sys and keeping Red might help, but I was impatient away from the site and have paid the price. Lesson learned! I'll keep it in case it's ever revivable.

    CBHC always makes your Wii U freeze for short periods of time [Atleast if you installed it on a fresh, non-hacked Wii U] It would go away after some time so you cleary fucked up there man...

    ask us before you do stupid stuff next time, @pwsincd we have a new bricked Wii U!

    Yeah sorry, I should have been clearer. By freezing I meant the system totally locking up on menus and during games and doing the "high pitch" sound that was quite common on the launch 8GB models (as I suspect this unit is, it is white 8GB) it wasn't a temporary pausing or such, it happened quite often and made the thing almost unplayable. But clearly for someone who has done this for a while, I should have had more patience and read up. I'll likely hang on to the unit but could offer it up for sacrifice if need be. I have a red flashing light unit that has never powered on (a random junk sale) that I will investigate now this is dead. Perhaps I can splice something together. Always read the label kids!

    You can try dumping NAND from that dead Wii U [That red flashing one] and check if everything is alright. Most issues can be fixed :)

    This Wii U is dead and can't be resurrected
    It belongs in here:

    Jokes aside, don't throw away your broken Wii U. If you have OTP, you can wait till EyeKey creates unbrick tool.
