    What the crap is Zhang loader? Are you talking about the vWii side of things?

    I'm curious too. :huh: Google is clueless as to what Zhang loader v2.1 is. I guess OP followed a guide from a parallel universe. Let's wait for more information.

    That error means your wii u isn't detecting the SD Card, either remove it, reinsert it and try again (i fix it by blowing it a bit) or scan your SD card for any errors it may have

    Are you going to answer any of our questions first? Are you trying to hack the Wii U or the vWii? And what is Zhang loader and where did you find it?

    It was working fine until I installed that home brew channel loader v2.1 I went to load it and it gave me a error and fazed my console so I removed it and now I get that error message.it has something to do with that dam software.it even to me to go into my internet settings to block nintendo so I can use it by putting in a d.n.s. Number.idk if this was a scam to ruin ppls wii us but I tried a brand new card and same issue!!!

    Can you at least show us what guide you followed, on youtube or wherever? Your console might not be done for just yet. Don't give up so quickly.

    I'm pretty sure the OP's console is working perfectly, and it's just that whenever they attempt to launch homebrew, it gives the "FS Open Failed" error.
    I think that's caused by the sd card either missing files or being wrongly formatted?

    At this point imo you'd be better off following a guide from scratch, and knowing what you're doing.

    You know, I think you're right. I remember seeing a similar error every once in a while, back when I was using Loadiine on 5.3.2. Turned out the SD card wasn't mounting properly, or something. Fun times! But nothing was broken. Thank god Haxchi and Brazilian method came along!

    Go back and read your first post. You said Zhang loader which confused us. You didn't say if you were having problems with the Wii U or the built in virtual wii. When we asked you to clarify you got pissed. Calm down, write understandable complete sentences and we can help you.

    That's like me stomping into my car delearship and saying, "My widget wheel modulator is cracked" "Are you gonna help me or what?!"

    You probably tried loading homebrew launcher channel from the browser, and not homebrew launcher. Homebrew Launcher latest release version is 1.4, Homebrew Launcher Channel latest release is 2.1.

    You must put homebrew launcher v1.4 on your SD Card, so you can load it via the browser (loadiine.ovh).

    You can only launch the channel version from the WiiU main menu, and that only works if you are running sysmenu with sigpatches.


    Read Kafluke's Noob Guide, it's at the the very top of this forum, it's a pinned topic. His guide tells you everything you need to know to get started.

    Clean copper panels on your SDCard with a cloth.
    Reinstert it back.

    Ok thanx.I had loadiine and wud installer and tcpgecho installed with a few loadiine games a couple of eshop and wiiu games on my usb.everything was working fine.I was using the loadiine.ovh to boot up into hbl v1.4. I heard that there was a homebrew channel loader version(v2.1) of it that recently came out so I tried to install it and it froze my console and gave me a error code.so I went into the uninstall options took it off my system and also deleted the folder in the apps directory.so I reboot my wii u getting ready to install another game on my usb and load loadiine.ovh as I usually do then after the white loading screen with the wiiu logo in the corner id's loading the screen goes black on the controller and tv and it gives me this message at the top left hand corner: FSOpen file error then I have to reboot the console because that locks it up.

    Is your HDD self-powered? Do you have Y Cable?
    Delete homebrew_launcher.elf from SDCard and redownload & replace hbl 1.4 from Dimok's Github.
    The error HBLC gave you is "A problem has occured and Wii U needs to be powered off" type of message? That's because you tried to launch it without being in CFW.

    If that doesn't work, backup your contents of SDCard and format it to FAT32 32kb cluster size and drop back your files.
