    So, I booted up my Wii U for the first time in a few years, and I wanted to check out some Homebrew, but when my Wii U booted up, I saw that the game I used to install Homebrew with, Mario Kart DS, was gone, as long as any hint of any sort of Homebrew and CFW being on my system other than HBC autobooting when I turn on my console, and the "DONT TOUCH ME" application.

    I went to the eShop to redownload it to hopefully just reinstall Homebrew, but the eShop says it's installed on my system, even though its not on my system menu, nor does it show up in data management.

    What's the best course of action for me to take? Should I just reinstall everything, or is there some kind of fix I can do?

    No No No don't touch anything ColdBootHaxchi replaces the application it specifically says this when installing that the game you overwrite will no longer be playable as its the app labeled DO NOT TOUCH

    I hacked my Wii U about 3ish years ago now, so I didn't remember lol.

    What should I do then? I cant access the HBC, and when I bush the home button when its autobooting when I turn my Wii U on, it gives me the error -5.

    It sounds like an sd card problem. First of all is there one in there? You can't access the homebrew launcher without it and it has to be properly formatted and have the files needed in wiiu/apps folder.

    Yeah I have my SD card, it has everything in it as well, since I haven't touched it since late 2017. the HB Laucher isnt anywhere to be seen, however.
