Hello, firstly thank you to the community for this amazing forum and wealth of info and support.

I bought a Wii U about a week ago and read up on the Wii U hacking guide.

I successfully hacked my Wii U, used the buying a DS game route and also put on CHBC.

I downloaded Wii U games from USB helper and transfered to Wii U hard drive using WUP installer

Every game worked a charm, everything was going to plan

Then sadly my SD I had been using died on me, tried for days to format it but the thing is dead.

now HBL channel won't open, it just freezes. If I try the browser exploit it still freezes. I have put on a new SD all the files to load but it keeps freezing

I have tried about 5 different SD cards and none of them want to know.

I can still play the games I have installed, but I can't get into HBL anymore to use WUP and install more games

I am pulling my hair out here and there isn't much lest! lol

please help

Thanks

2 things make sure the sd cards are formatted to fat32 and i dont suggest using the browser exploit and instead just use haxchi though haxchi does require you to buy a ds vc game from the eshop and you cannot pirate this game

Thanks for the reply

I have formatted all the SD cards into Fat32 and I had the HBL installed as a channel and was just opening it from the system menu.

I used the purchase a DS game to get haxchi installed on my system. I then installed CHBC with it (it turned the icon into a red warnign sign)

Everything was working great until my SD corrupted and now no matter what way I try to get into HBL the thing freezes.

From what I've read it sounds like it could be an SD card issue but I've tried plenty...

I fixed my issue.

I rebuilt the SD from scratch as opposed to using the files I backed up from my SD before it became corrupted

sounds sooo simple now LOL
