    I tried to install cold boot hax and I got a message that says "There is a problem with the system memory" when I boot up my wii u and then it just stays on that screen. Does this mean I bricked my wii u? Is this reversible? I followed all of the steps provided on how to install cold boot hax except that I downloaded the cold boot hax installer off of the homebrew shop with the homebrew menu.
    The error code is 160-0103

    did you legitimately purchase the DS VC game? and was it installed to NAND or USB?

    I didn't get the ds vc game legit although it installed HaxChi just fine so I thought it would be okay. It's installed on to the NAND.

    RIP, you should have read the guide better. Non-legit ds vc game = brick.

    Rip, the guide didn't specify that it had to be legit.
    Oh well, I didn't use my wii u for much anyways. It's irreversible, right?

    Can I ask which guide you used?

    That is THE guide!

    I didn't read the haxchi installation part because I already had haxchi installed
    Plus it never specifically says that non legit games will brick it

    Even knowing my stuff I still avoid installing coldboot haxchi since it is risky. Even with legit dr kawashima game from eShop I just use normal haxchi so no accident could brick my system.

    I wonder why so many people are jumping feet first to the abyss - so readily and with so many disastrous results...

    I cry, when Wii U's deserve to die.

    It is totally safe to install CBHC if you have a legit game. The only brick that can happen now is formating with cbhc. Everything else is protected against

    I rather not have coldbooting incase I do something stupid. Since the Wii U is very easily brickable, I rather not do something dumb.

    Also it's recommended to try booting Haxchi before doing a coldboot install incase something went wrong.
