    I followed these step but whenever I start Haxchi, I end up on the WiiU menu. I did CFW my haxchi by haxchi itself so I could install DLCs downloaded from USB Helper. Did I miss something? TIA

    that's because the default is set to system menu with sig patches installed. that is normal.

    Okay so two days ago after installing the Step 2 Haxchi I stopped and load USB Helper titles on my channel and I'm good to go. But when I couldn't load DLC on a title I started doing the Haxchi CFW step. (I figured its the least evasive, least brickable method in my noob opinion) so I thought I'd stop there but I guess I have to continue 'HBL as channel' and or 'WUP installer GX as channel' to continue future title installs. Thanks!

    dlc requires cfw. games that don't are ones that came as retail, so eshop only stuff would require cfw.

    I successfully installed wup installer gx channel and HBL channel but whenever I launch them I was given 'error turn of wii u etc." And since Haxchi can't boot up because I re-installed it as CFW, now the only way to install DLC is by browserhax method to launch HBL and then launch wup installer gx inside hbl and install DLC titles (which I had success on one title so far). How do I get the two channels working? Thanks!

    if you overrode the legit ticket with a fake one, you're going to have to uninstall the game, then remove the ticket manually or else it will error instantly at installation from the eshop. don't know why this is but both the wii u and the 3ds do not remove unused tickets.

    if you re-installed haxchi for cfw you still have to press the icon to launch cfw.you can check by looking in settings firmware will show 999999.if haxchi doesn't work you dit something wrong ,just re-install it.remember you still have to launch haxchi to launch howebrew,..... download homedrew channel v1.4 zip file ,i heard there's some problems with the new version

    if you use cbhc you're out of luck,if u use haxchi just download the game again from the eshop(you can redownload for free if you use the same id) and reinstall haxci.
    with cbhc the only way is a hardmod i think

    Thanks. For haxchi, can I boot direcly to vWii like CBHC? And I have problem with with vWii, I can not acess either the system menu or the homebrew launcher so basically I can not acess Wii at all. I think the reason is I messed up with wads of the wrong iOS, is there any way to unbrick the VWii?

    You use cbhc and deleted haxchi game and have no brick ?if it was setup to start vwii on start that's the reason.i would first uninstall cbhc and check if you can Acces vwii.you can re-install game,haxchi,cbhc afterworths.if cbhc was setup to boot haxchi your Wii u was bricked so you're verry Lucky

    you can follow this guide.
    5.5.2, 5.5.3 and 5.5.4 are identical.

    6 months ago I rewrote entirely the chapters 1, 2, and "how to use haxchi" to work with 5.5.3, just follow everything and you'll be fine.
    I wanted to rewrite the chapters 3 and more, but didn't had time.
    the graphics also need an update, the steps are a little different now.

    Can I change Mocha to Haxchi without losing my game in internal storage?

    Yes. Neither affects storage, as long as you aren't using RedNAND (you would/should know if you are)

    I get an error trying boot from browerhax into the homebrew launcher.

    "FSGetMountSource failed. Please insert a FAT32 formatted sd card"

    Thing is my sd card is inserted and formatted to fat32. I used guiformat and did it at both 32 and 64 clusters. I used two different sd cards and still the same error appears.
    I believe i have a wiiu with a faultly sd card slot but idk how to be sure. I know smash writes a folder to the sd card for snapshots but i dont have that game. How do i know if i have a faulty sd card slot?

    It doenst work-i tryed mii maker to save an image of a mii and its asking for an sd card to be inserted even though its in there.
