    Theres a program which I had and was superb for formatting but I cannot remember the name of it for life...
    It easily formatted rednand and emunands.
    Gahhhh


    EDIT: Haha screw you brain! I remembered. Paragon partition manager 2014. Try it (theres a free version) :)

    If I remember correctly users used Panasonic SD Formatter to remove the 3DS redNAND too. it's formatting the full card, even if you select the partition letter.

    winkey+r: diskpart
    list disk (Find your device)
    select disk X (replace X with the correct number)
    clean

    Now the disk is empty and doesn't contain any partition

    this. ^^ diskpart is built into windows. I'd back up that partition though since that's ur wii u NAND backup in case u brick some day.

    You can use Linux or use SD formatter.

    Hey everyone. I just removed redNAND, myself. Thanks for the input here.

    So what do I do next? Do I just go through the whole Haxchi process again? Do I have to remove it from my Wii U before starting over?

    If you set Haxchi's config to autoboot to mocha [default=wiiu/apps/mocha/mocha.elf] then just change that line to default=sysmenu and reinstall it and you're done.

    Hey. Thanks! This is done in notepad, right? Or do I start up Haxchi on the Wii U and do this? Sorry. I'm a noob. Not home to tinker with it at the moment

    Notepad. You can't edit SDCard content from Wii U. ..and probably not even in the future

    Yeah I didn't think so neither. Just wanted to make sure

    So I just put all of the original files back onto my SD card, excluding redNAND file(s), edit the line of code, and pop it back into the Wii U?

    Format redNAND partition, put files back, and edit that one line, and insert it to your Wii U, then reinstall Haxchi.
