    When I turned on my Wii U today i got this message after about two seconds:
    "An error has occurred.

    Please turn the console off.

    Error Code: 160-0101"

    Last time I used my Wii U was a couple of weeks ago and then it worked fine. But now I cant even get to any menu.
    Does anyone know what kind of error it is or know any solution?
    Are there some kind of hard reset or factory reset I can do before enter any menu?
    Or is there some kind of fail safe startup?

    Any help are welcomed!

    Did you have CBHC installed?

    Your Wii is bricked I'm afraid, its trying to boot a title that doesn't exist. May be fixable in the future assuming you backed up the eMMC but right now its not viable unless you're very good with a soldering iron.

    Ka-ching! You fucked up.
    • CBHC [Refered as "Haxchi"]
    • Formatted sysNAND [CBHC wasn't uninstalled]
    • CBHC writes code to syshax.xml which is used to launch CBHC on boot. If game is missing, Wii U doesn't know what the fuck to do so it will crash instead.
    • No NAND Backup. Sorry mate, your Wii U is dead for good.
    You can't fix it anymore because you don't have OTP. [Afaik, it's impossible to call for otp when Wii U is bricked, it might be possible in future]
    @pwsincd yarr, another brick!

    Oh jeez another one of these... This is why I avoided CBHC..
    Im guessing you installed a non legit ds game for it? Or the ds game was installed to usb? If so, your wii u is fucked. Id throw it away and just buy a new console at this point. No going back now.

    Sadly there isnt a fix for this... You formatted your wii u :/ CHBC loads before the homemenu from a title and since you formatted it, the title is no longer there and fails to load it. No way to fix it.

    It's dead, might be fixable in the future but we don't know for sure.

    He's trying to communicate.
    You can always unbrick by doing hmod using your own OTP and SLC/MLC.
