    hey guys,

    I’m not sure what I did but when I turn on the Wii U I boot into the home brew station and not to the Wii U games home menu.

    Can some one please help me. What do I need to do to boot back into the Wii U.

    You need to have homebrew enabled to run backup.

    How do I do that.

    When I remove the SD card I get a code number -3 and black screen.

    When I insert the SD card I boot into the home brew menu

    I installed haxchi then I installed CBHC then I reinstalled Haxchi over it. 1. Because I didn’t like it 2. I’m not sure what I’m doing.

    Haxchi need to be run every boot. Why you installed haxchi over cold boot?

    I don't think reinstalling haxchi over CBHC is a good idea, you should have uninstall CBHC because I think you have created a loop here.
    Read about how to remove CHBC is the safest way before you do anything else, I don't know much about CBHC.

    Uninstall cbhc change the cfg file of haxchi to boot to home screen to do this set default=sysmenu then reinstall haxchi.

    Just remove CBHC, you can access homebrew right? Then go there and choose CBHC app then choose the game brain age or whatever game you installed haxchi on, then remove it.

    Ok I clicked cbhc and clicked b to uninstall. The system booted back into homebrew. Now how do I change the cfw file of haxchi to boot into homescreen?

    Put your sd card into a pc open the haxchi cfg file edit default so it says default=sysmenu. Put sd card back into wiiu run the haxchi installer again so as the new cfg file can be used. Problem solved.

    Thanks guys.

    So I’m an experienced noob almost shit myself.

    I uninstalled cbhc when I was booted into the homebrew menu. Then it auto booted me back into homebrew. I turn off then on the console and now I’m back to the Wii U home screen.

    I didn’t change anything to the sequoia card. But when I launched haxchi it went to the homebrew menu.

    So I guess the system is back to what I had it originally.

    Thanks again guys .

    To just boot to the home menu but not have to run haxchi every time, install CBHC, set autoboot to Home Menu, and don't reinstall haxchi over CBHC.
