    ok guys i managed to get everything working and flashed the slc.bin to the cbhc bricked wiiu , it said completed, my issue was i did not have pyserial install, but now I just cut the connections on the teensy and left them incase but when i turn on my wiiu it is stuck on the wiiu screen, and nothing happens, if my cd drive is unplugged i get a disk error. could the issue be the wires?
    EDIT> removed wires still nothing, just a wiiu white screen, sucks cause it definitely flashed the slc.bin, what is going on.

    HI Sunday I checked my System.xml and the title ID is
    default_os_id type="hexBinary" length="8">000500101000400a</default_os_id>

    <default_title_id type="hexBinary" length="8">0005001010040100</default_title_id>

    you said the default should be check that default_title_id line including 0005001010040200 (default sys menu.

    Could this change by region? say yours is 0005001010040200 because it is European and mine is 0005001010040100 because it is usa?

    Also is it ok for me to post the full system.xml for you to have a look at? and last question would my problem of the console not booting after flashed slc.bin be connected to this an error I get from nandchecker, says two files have bad HMAS.

    I also get this from runnning cbhcremover.exe, I assume this is because the slc.bin backup was done before cbhc was installed.

    C:\Users\gameon\Desktop\kodys wiiu brick repair>nandCbhcRemover.exe slc.bin
    ** nandFixer : Fix incomplete dump, add ECCs and HMACs **
    built: Mar 25 2017 01:05:33
    NandBin::ItemFromPath ->item not found "/sys/config/syshax.xml"
    "Can't find system.xml backup, are you sure CBHC is installed?"

    I apologize for all the question in advance.

    Yes. Its for usa region - normal

    What about your serial number on system.xml?
    And you have copy mlc?
    Your console stuck on wiiu logo without any error? When you press sync button - no responce?
    Maybe needed fix 0005001010040100 title. Im not remember where it placed - on mlc or on slc. If you have mlc backup - try flash it with cardreader.

    And do other one operation - flash slc.bin, then read it from console. Compare both file - if r/w operation error files will be not same - maybe strange boot because of this

    I have not checked the serial. Will do that when i get home in about 4 hours. Where exactly is the serial stored in the system.xml? Yeah weird before I flashed it it would give error 0101 but now it just sits on the wiiu white screen I did not try to sync. I do not have mlc.bin. would it be ok to change the title id to your0005001010040100 thanks again for help.

    Its needed to understanding what backup actualy from your console (if you not change serial for unban before ofc). Serial jus - ctr+f and search. Maybe its write on other .xml file in same folder.
    You read mlc.bin in this state? If yes - try manualy fix system.xml. If not - needed understand reason console not boot
    If your console have usa region - not change to ...040200 eur - title id match from folder on slc or mlc and have launch files. If it not created - cant boot

    Well I think I am screwed. I left the system flashing last night. I got up this morning and it said completed. So I turned wiiu off and did not test it and left for work. Came home tonight and disconnected ground but the system would not turn on. Weird thing was if the hdmi was disconnected the blue light would turn on but turn right off again. So I hooked everything back up. But now the info it said unkown chip. So tried flashing to it anyways. Well if just kept say verification error over and over. Edit...So I disconnected all the wires and going to try and silder them up again but I am pretty sure my wiiu is dead since I cannot write to the chip anymore.

    So I unsoldered everything and resoldered and now the info shows proper nand info. So wrote to chip but gave many verification error but it is still writing. Also @SundayWarrior I looked in every xml in slc but could not find serial.

    Check flasher and solder point, reinstall driver or flash programm. About serial - i unpack my backup later and write where it placed.

    Good. Now flash tour backup, then read it back, compare both files - if not match = r/w error. If matched - needed think. Backup is your, if broken some partition or files maybe there is a way to crypt unpacked donor dump with your keys.

    So last night I tried again bu this time I used a multi meter to make sure all the connections were properly good. After doing this I had the same problem where the red light on the system does not turn on to blue like before. It blinks red once and stays red. But I tried anywsys and I do get proper info for nand discription but after try to flash slc. I get all berification errors. Also tried on the slcmpt.bin by changing the two connection but still get verification errors. So I tried to write to it by using write command not verification and it did complete with one error. But the system still does not power on when I hit the power button. I think I am screwed. To me it sounds like there is a something makeing a small click when I move the board. Another weird thing is when I put pressure on the two chips on the same side as the processor sometimes i get no info for the processor. I might have put to much pressure on the board since I rest my hand on the board when soldering.

    Hi,

    I bricked my Wiiu, yeah, so i got a nice little project. I reflashed the rom with a TSOP Clip, so no soldering at all. After flashing the memory I got a blinking blue led, spinning fan, no CDROM startup sequence. I compared the bin I wrote to WIIU and vWII. It all looks fine. wrote SLC and SLCMPT to the right partitions of the memory.
    SLC.Bin to RE2 and RB2 connection on the TSOP (WIIU)
    SLCMPT.bin to RE1 and RB2 on the TSOP (vWII)

    Any clues?

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I got them from the backuptool which being recommended when setting up homebrew.
    I ran nandway dump for the first few blocks and compared them with the backup. it all looks fine. strange. I would think that the system would boot-up when a flawless restore of SLC is being done.

    I think I have found the issue. I'm using the wrong backup files, from another WIIU. I compared the backup files on my pc, two folders. containing similar files (binary). i give it another shot. I guess the WIIU can't decrypt the files.

    Fingers crossed! I wish we had a better method to do this kind of operations...

    buying another 2nd hand would be cheaper and much faster. But its a nice project. Getting experience with a teensy, soldering stuff and writing a NAND from a dead device and saving it from the shred.

    I think I killed the bastard. At some point it told me the chip was unknown with 16 MB Nand and start writing. Some errors with block verification failed.
    Now I can't start it anymore. Solid red light. Unable to power it up.

    update: I'm flashing the chip with external power to the chip it self. No external power to the wiiu-board or the teensy, only to the nand. executing the flash command results in errors reading the chip information, but after a few tries It's flashing with the correct chip info.
    waiting for results...

    I believe the nand for the wii u is 528MBs or so. you need the otp.bin to decrypt it, but you won't need it if you have a nand from before the brick occurred. I think it mentions that in the guide.
