    Is the original Super Mario Bros game on NES considered a VC title? I have it already, could I use that to run the exploit?

    I do not understand what you mean by "Refer to @OP for key combination" Is this an email? Sorry for my ignorance on the subject

    Please don't use this installer, it is outdated and useless, just get CBHC. Also no only DS VC titles work

    O ok. But a tutorial I saw states that first you need Haxchi, then you can install CBHC. Is that correct?

    You don't install CBHC unless normal haxchi works yes, just buy brain age or any DS VC game from the eshop to use it.

    In reality you don't need to install Haxchi to install CBHC.
    But to make you don't "accidently" brick due to DS VC title suddenly not working, you need to install Haxchi and test if it boots HBL apps without crashes, freezes etc.
    Then proceed to install CBHC after you're sure everything works. [something like safety net, if it doesn't work, don't install CBHC over it]

    Brain Age* yes.
    Make sure to install Haxchi to check if everythin works then install newest CBHC from FIX94's github. [v1.6]

    Why would Haxchi not work in the first place ? Like is there could be any problems because I don not want to waste the game money for nothing .

    Haxchi is required to be working before cbhc, so in the rare case the nds isn't overwritten you can recover with haxchi.
    If you don't install haxchi beforehand, and the nds fails to overwrite, your wii u will basically become a nds game :P

    Haxchi should work fine if you use the installer... If haxchi installer doesn't work then CBHC shouldn't work...

    Hey if anyone installs haxchi over cbhc. All you have to do is press and hold B to enter into HBL when it is doing the boot loop, and then install cbhc again. I deleted haxchi before I did this, dont know if that makes a difference. But yeah if you ever do install haxchi over cbhc, just do this and you should be fine. Should be an easy fix, thought my Wii U was a goner lol.

    could you do a tutorial about it? If my WiiU gets bricked, can I restore a NAND backup?

    if you fear a brick just dont install coldboot haxchi.

    If you install coldboot haxchi, just dont mess around reinstalling haxchi or stuff like that (also why want you do that, whats the purpose?)

    follow these easy rules and cbhc is safe:
    - only install this title to the nand
    - dont install the same game again
    - if you have to remove cbhc use the deinstall option
    - just dont mess around with the cbhc game
    - if you brick your wiiu you have to do a so called hardmod, which needs soldering skill (you need to solder on the wiiu pcb) and you need the right file(s) (before you bricked your wiiu)

    again if you fear a brick (and cant/wont afford buying a used wiiu without accessories in that case), just use either haxchi (and if you dont want to buy a game, indexiine)

    make a backup of the nand (slc.bin and otp.bin are the most important). if you have one or the other, a brick is fixable. you either need the slc.bin from before installing cbhc or the otp.bin before or after (doesn't matter) to use cbhcremover. the otp.bin is what decrypts the slc.bin.
