    Hello there

    I have no idea how this happened. I tried to run Mocha CFW, the wii u froze, so I restarted it and now its bricked. Well I don't know if it's real bricked but I don't know how to fix it too. I tried like an idiot to uninstall CBHC (I had CBHC) and now I cant even run homebrew channel.

    The problem : wii U menu splash infinite loading OR freeze after the message which say the console wasn't turned off correctly.

    I haven't got my NAND Backup anymore.

    Please help! Thanks!

    No error messages or anything. Just the menu freezing.

    You said you tried to uninstall CBHC. What were the steps you took to uninstall? Also why would you be using Mocha if you had CBHC? That makes no sense (unless you followed wiiu.guide)

    I uninstalled CBHC with the same installer I installed it with. I ran CBHC Installer then selected Brain Test game and pressed B.
    (I followed wiiu.guide).

    The menu just freeze after booting. I wanted to post an image but I can't as new member.

    Ugh. Another wiiu.guide victim. I don't know why people assume that guide is gospel just because 3ds.guide is so good.

    it may be since you had never run mocha before. the first time you start up mocha you'll be presented with a menu of options. you can prevent the window from popping up by pressing a button (can't recall which).

    the issue may be the guide you followed. it's very outdated. however, I find it odd that it would, at that time, brick unless you were using an outdated version of cbhc. I've heard of people bricking by updating it without uninstalling it first.

    If cbhc is in fact installed, when you turn on your console you will see CBHC autoboot by fix94, on the screen, if not you dont have cbhc

    I just fucking lost my ONLY CHANCE to fix it by uninstalling CBHC. Cause the Homebrew Launcher was still bootable. Damn me.

    A BIT OF PROGRESS : For some reason, it asked me which account I wanted to select. First time it did that. Then i select a Mii (or try to make one) and GUESS WHAT? it crash.
    EDIT : Found the reason. I can start "Menu" from Quick Start Menu. So I can select a character only if I run the wii with the gamepad. Weird.

    Just a random suggestion, shut the console completely off, and then power it on with the power button on the console, not the gamepad.
    From here press and hold the A button on the Gamepad, and keep it held, even when you see the "Wii U menu" thing on the screen, even if you think it's frozen.

    If you do this, it may boot you into the Homebrew Launcher where you can correctly uninstall CBHC and reinstall it if you desire.
    If it does something else, detail what it does here.
