    i used it to dump my gamepad firmware lmao, but installing titles in a nice gui, having cool settings, having something WELL TESTED instead of shitty homebrew to install apps to my nand, yknow. being safer than homebrew.

    (wupinstaller is probably as safe as sct because they both just call to mcp but yknow, tested)

    As a further security, you could add a check during the installation, if a USB device is connected and refuse to install, if one is connected. I refer to this thread:
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/cbhc-1-2-boot-loop.453098/
    In his case the system.xml was modified but the haxchi installation part of cbhc failed. The only reason this guy didnt brick, is that he already had an old version of haxchi installed. If that wouldnt have been the case, he wouldve always booted the original brain which (which would be quite funny tbh) and effectively have bricked his system.

    he could've still entered the browser from that point and done the browser exploit again, lets not forget that.

    "Also there still is a myth going around it will brick if you move its icon in the menu; that is false and is perfectly safe as it is only a visual change in the system menu."

    Moving around is ok, but putting its channel inside a dashboard folder seems to cause brick, isn't it ?

    You can move it around the Home menu and put it in a folder with NO brick.
    Just cant Move (NOT COPY) to usb. It must be installed in sysnand only!

    Just a quick question, does the delete protection work if I rename DONT TOUCH ME to CHBC?

    CBHC (ColdBoot HaxChi)

    This project implements coldboothax as explained by smealum using a DS VC game for its exploit - it is called CBHC (ColdBoot HaxChi)

    [​IMG]
    It is available to download here:
    https://github.com/FIX94/haxchi/releases

    WARNING

    Please ONLY INSTALL THIS if you already have the normal Haxchi installed and know that it works perfectly, just install it over your existing Haxchi installation, again, DO NOT INSTALL IT from a freshly downloaded, never started/tested game or you may brick. Also ONLY INSTALL THIS if the DS VC is BOUGHT FROM eSHOP ON THAT CONSOLE AND ON NAND AND YOU HAVE NO USB CONNECTED WHEN USING THE INSTALLER.

    If a new CBHC version comes out you can just run the installer again and let it overwrite the existing CBHC installation.

    infos

    Installing this will execute the DS VC of your choice directly on system boot - giving you a direct coldboot exploit, the options you have after installing it are explained down below.

    • After installing it you better go ahead and set up some DNS server protection to block potential future system updates.
    • Disable standby
    • NEVER touch the DS VC you used to install, that means dont move it to usb in the settings or try to delete it since it has to stay on NAND, just generally be smart about it, I am not responsible for your dead wiiu because of user error.
    • Also there still is a myth going around it will brick if you move its icon in the menu; that is false and is perfectly safe as it is only a visual change in the system menu.

    Features

    Anyways, enough of that - what can this actually do when installed?
    It offers a basic menu from which you can boot into:
    • The system menu which will get full signature and region patching and support this ftpiiu-everywhere version; CBHC comes with its own sysnand CFW included.
    • You can boot into the .elf version of homebrew launcher.
    • You can boot a fw.img or Mocha CFW on your sd card which could be useful for rednand and if you really need to connect to wupserver from a pc, but thats really only interesting as a developer. For pretty much anyone the system menu setting (which uses the included CBHC CFW) is enough.

    Autoboot option

    If you want to automatically go to any of these options just enable the autoboot option for it.
    The menu controls are very simplistic, up/down to move the cursor and A to either select the option or change the autoboot option, you can control it using the gamepad or any wiimote, classic controller or wiiu pro controller OR if you are really desperate the the "sync" button on the console itself will work too - click once to move the cursor down and double click to simulate what A does normally.

    Once autoboot is set up you can easily cancel it by pressing the home/sync button while the "Autobooting..." message is shown to get back into the little menu and change your settings or launch something different from there.

    That is a wrong report.
    he didn't brick because he moved the title into a folder!

    the console is bricked for another reason :
    1. he didn't check if haxchi was working BEFORE installing CBHC. (he didn't follow the guide or thought it wasn't required, like lot of users who think it's a stupid step to unplug USB as long as you install to sysNAND)
    2. his issue was something else (maybe hardware issue, maybe a bad haxchi installation, maybe something else)

    that's the kind of report that lot of users transform as rumor.
    first user reporting the last thing he did, and other users think it's what caused it.
    the issue wasn't based on CBHC, but maybe an incorrect Haxchi installation. Maybe something else, we won't know because he didn't try and check before installing coldboot.

    moving the icon, or putting it into a folder on sysNAND is TOTALLY FINE.


    I would do it if I had the time.
    I made lot of chart like this on the wiki.
    I still have to update the wiki, it's missing lot of wiiu information. not a lot of users help on the wiki and they just wait for a page to exist to edit it.

    @charlieb :

    VERY early step. it's only a draft and it might be changed or completely redone later.

    Let me know if someone think of better way to make the chart, or additional columns, etc. before I add other CFWs to the list.
    don't edit the page yet, I'm still working on it. thanks.
