    No you can't but you can buy another Wii U and connect with your NNID, you'll have all your games

    You WILL have to call Nintendo so they can transfer your ID though.

    Yeah, When I had to do this they only ask me about my recent purchases & that was enough to get my account back.

    When did you brick exactly? Do you still have the old console? I need some help testing a potential unbrick, could you help me?

    Yeah, my theory is within 24 hours of brick you'll still have the ability to boot straight to system apps, such as the Internet browser, open HBL, run a wupserver fw.img, fix system.xml. If you synced with a different console you're screwed, sorry m8.

    I guess i was wrong then, quick boot doesnt allow a work around.
