Hacking can't boot in sysmenu, it automatically boots in homebrew launcher (haxchi and CBHC)

Ok so, I had a perfectly working haxchi + CBHC. Then I discovered about padcon, which is actually great and lets you turn off the gamepad screen by pressing R3. I wanted to have that by keeping pressed one button at boot, so here's what I did:

I retrieved the haxchi's config.txt and changed a=fw.img to a=wiiu/apps/Padcon/padcon.elf
I ran haxchi installer again and reinstalled haxchi.

That's it, now my wii U only boots in homebrew launcher. I already tried restoring the original config.txt and reinstalling haxchi again. Didn't work.

Hold home button when booting. What do you have your CBHC set up to autoboot to?

Also, there is a reason why HaxChi says "don't touch me". Don't mess with HaxChi when you have CBHC Installed. You're asking for a brick.

Once you have CBHC installed you're not SUPPOSE TO TOUCH HAXCHI!!! You can configure autoboot to work the way you want it by altering CBHC. NOT HAXCHI!

If I hold home it still boots in HBL.

It's set up to boot to system menu.
I think you jacked CBHC by messing with HaxChi. Why would you even touch HaxChi with all the warnings with CBHC? You should very carefully uninstall CBHC then HaxChi and reinstall everything from scratch.

Blows my mind why people mess with HaxChi when even Fix94 changed the icon to say "Don't touch me"

Ok well... it worked. Now it boots to system menu. Gonna reinstall everything from scratch now.

Thank you and sorry for being a noob. On a side note, how can I configure CBHC to boot an .elf by holding a button at boot?

Yea well, it's a very good guide. It's not what I am looking for though, but I will just give up on that for now. Don't wanna risk another brick. Thank you for your help.

It explains every current hack method for wii u. How is it not what you're looking for? Just looking for ways to improve it.
