    I heard someone on a podcast complaining their Wii U has started freezing more frequently and this has been my experience as well.

    I have Haxchi but not CBHaxchi. It seems to freeze even when not using Haxchi though. I get it freezing in Youtube. Freezing when trying to close one app on the white Wii U screen. I have had it freeze while playing minecraft in the past too.

    Yesterday after I died in Metroid Prime Trilogy (a game I use Haxchi to run) I continued and my wii remote stopped controlling the game and I couldn't get to the home menu or anything.


    When the hell are we going to get another stability update because my system is crashing way too frequently.

    I've never had my wii u freeze, and I play it A LOT. I have had graphical tilting issues with the virtual wii and the pro controller losing its attachment to the system if I go into the virtual wii. I think it might have something to do with the custom theme slowly corrupting the ios. I have a backup of that .app file, so I'll test if that fixes it.

    My freezes seem to have gone away since I switched my hard drive a few weeks back.
