    A few hours ago I installed, Haxchi and later CBHC and everything worked fine, I installed several channels and dlcs and perfect, but a few hours later I turned on the console and it gives me error 160-0101 and it tells me that I have to turn off the console.

    Some help?

    1. Where was the game used for CBHC installed to? (NAND or USB)
    2. Did you have to run it with sighax?
    3. Could you give a list of EVERYTHING you did to your Wii U before this happened?
    4. Do you have a NAND backup? (Did you have redNAND installed or not?)
    5. Could you return your Wii U to the store if you can't get a hardmod (I know this sounds cheap but, the store will send it to Nintendo for repairs before resale)

    NOTE: Yes; your Wii U is bricked. This is why I don't mess with Haxchi or CBHC

    Sorry to hear about your problem. I always wonder why people insist on installing CBHC when the only advantage is to save you from pressing 1 button, but greatly increases your risk of bricking. Just install Haxchi and stop, especially if you're new to Wii U hacking.

    1. Brain Training on NAND
    2. ┬┐Sighax? I bought the game on e-shop
    3. I installed CBHC, then these channels: loadiine, wup installer and homebrew channel. Finally I installed the Smash and MK8 dlcs
    4. No
    5. No :/

    I hacked it a few months ago

    I do not know if it influences, but when I installed the dlcs of MK already had one of them installed and still after installing them I could enter without problems to the game

    First, you install Haxchi to see if it works correctly then CBHC.
    That's your error, CBHC failed and you bricked.
    rip.

    Still, you probably installed CBHC while being in sigpatched firmware.

    It has chance to corrupt itself, especially when it was installed while being in CFW. [Which is pretty common if you did that, Install it on a clean FW next time.]

    Can I recover the console with a backup of the OTP?

    The OTP is a roughly 300 byte string that has nothing to do with recovery. You have NO way of recovering from here because you didn't have a NAND backup. Time for a new Wii U or Nintendo Switch! :D

    Seems like from what your say something you've installed has made it brick. Everyone who uses cbhc should be careful what they install. I've noticed a few vc game injects that have the same title id as an official eshop game. If someone wasn't careful and uploaded an inject and it had say the same title id for a ds game that you use for cbhc then your fucked.

    where did you get that info from?
    that sounds like bs to me. you update cbhc while having sigpatches enabled, which is basically installing and its 100% safe.
    if an other buggier cfw was used though, could have corrupted something

    I was looking into haxchi, planning on modding my wiiu. I read that you have to remove haxchi before installing cbhc or it will go into a boot loop brick.

    The more I read about cbhc brick stories the more I want to uninstall it. Yes I'm careful, but there's always a remote chance. Is rednand still the only way to make a nand backup?

    Yeah ofcourse that's bullshit. I did the same thing and restarted my Wii U a million times since then. It doesn't corrupt itself like he's claiming it to be.
