    I'm fairly sure I have bricked my wiiu. I was trying to restore access to the HB channel, for unknown reasons the brain age channel that I installed for my entry point was no longer loading HBC as it should. even still, I was able to play any and all the titles that I had installed on my USB drive. My system ver. was 99.99.99 CBHC persistent, which meant that I still had working CFW, I just couldn't load HBC. So I followed the Guide] Community noob guide to Wii U hacking as if I were hacking a brand new wiiu on 5.5.1 and installed haxchi and it worked! I had restored access to HBC, until I rebooted the system..

    on the very next cold boot it showed the wiiu logo then a black screen with "-3" at the top left and that's where I'm at

    any thoughts or ideas to pull this system back from the depths would be greatly appreciated

    the minus errors are not bricks. it means something is wrong with the sd card like it can't find the file it's looking for for -3.

    Here is a list of error codes posted by Cyan: https://gbatemp.net/posts/7909840/

    -3 error means SD card not found.
    To be more specific, Haxchi aborts and calls OSFatal("-3") if FSGetMountSource returns anything other than 0

    Thank you!
    I got the SD cards from my wii and wiiU mixed up. however, now that I have the correct SD card back in my wiiu the system is cold booting into HBC, when I press the home button it drops me into the Mii channel and when I close that out I'm kicked back into HBC! I can not get into my Wiiu system menu..

    Ideally, you should install the HBC to your NAND, and cold boot into either CBHC or Mocha, as you prefer. Coldbooting into a HBC elf is no better than the web exploit.
