    Last year I made a post about how my Wii U got bricked. I was really devastated to learn there was no way of fixing it, the good news is i now have a Nintendo Switch! I'm not planning on hacking anytime soon (Unless i get another one or the next Nintendo console comes out), meanwhile my Wii U is collecting dust off to the side, I've turned it on many times but to no luck, I can't really sell it (Gamestop doesn't take hacked consoles), I can't repair it so my last resort is to you guys :yay:, hopefully someone knows what to do with it!

    For a bit more info on what I have: The Wii U can only open to the start menu, selecting anything just goes to an error screen, i have sd cards and a couple of usb's.

    The best I can think of is another way of using the gamepad for something else, but i just want to see if anyone has any ideas for the console too.

    If you dumped your NAND, I'd try getting a hardmod & restoring it.

    If you dont have a dump of the nand then sell the WiiU gamepad on Ebay here in Scotland they sell for roughly 60 to 70 pounds which works out roughly 85 to 98 US dollars more than enough to buy a few switch games.
