    My redNAND worked flawless for like 4 days, until now, i just edited some stupid things in Internet Settings and for some reason now it's bricked/corrupted, my fw.img just freeze (every time, i tried like 10 times) at "Welcome to redNAND 000000" Do you have any idea why?

    That thread is an elitist clusterfuck. The OP is an idiot who thinks "iosuhax is not ready" means exactly "wait for SALT because ONLY their stuff will be good".

    Like, no shit, iosuhax is not ready. Its all in the experimental phase. There's nearly no tooling or user oriented stuff yet, because they're still figuring it out. But speculating that SALT's eventual release will be the holy grail and waving around as if to brag, and saying no one should EVER try iosuhax is ridiculous. Normal users should, in both cases, wait for an official release and be wary of broken code. SALT is not our god, nor is iosuhax/wiiubru.

    Yeah, having users post shitty broken code is annoying, but it pretty much always comes with a hefty warning of " this is experimental/alpha and could cause a brick", and if people still try it, it's on them, not the reposter or developer.

    Good code will come in time. Don't expect stable, perfectly safe, perfectly useful code during initial experimentation.

    Well, leaving decisions to the "good sense" of the end user is never a good idea because you cannot have good sense if you do not know what are you doing/talking about: history shown bricks = console broken = money wasted = no more games = angry users, far away worst than users waiting -> frustrated users -> users hate devs because but still have their console to play ;)

    If you are not a dev you only have 1 choice: wait and get frustrated ;)

    Of course I am sarcastic. Have a nice day ;)

    Chalk this up to the first of many bricks coming from this. Post a detailed list of what you edited so the devs can see wtf you did and try to figure out why it happened. Only fix now is hard mod.

    No? Do you understand what redNAND is?

    The benefit of experimental stuff being out in the open is people can try it and report what happens. Leading to faster progress.

    How did you set up rednand? Also I know it's experimental.

    Plenty of guides around here. I've heard there's one on the "Wii U iso" site.

    Do you have a backup of your NAND?
    You could always try this since your pretty much screwed , unless someone else has suggestions. I don't know enough about any of it. That's why I'm waiting.

    Lol the team specifically said: Don't use any rednand or fw.img out there until there is a final release....

    RedNand should be safe, because if it bricks, it wont hurts the RealNand....

    My brain hurts from the stupid present in this thread (not OP, seems he's competent). OP, I would restore from backup and edit the settings you changed, then provide the steps to re-create and hopefully the devs can figure it out.

    redNAND recreated, tried some things and seems like touching particular spots of the redNAND causes it to brick, like editing the connection settings, and even launching eShop titles. At least for me-
    Guys i'm not an idiot, i know what i'm doing, don't worry, i have a NAND backup ready for any eventuality. :) Just doing some tests with the alpha homebrews that we currently have

    Currently there's some sort of bug during backup and some sectors won't backup correctly
