    There were some games I had installed on my Wii U before I installed MochaCFW, I decided to delete them (on stock FW) using the data management thing. Now whenever I try to delete those blocks in data management I get an error message telling me to reboot the system and try again.

    Blocks in question: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/X...7oSl_SEO_3mVv_OcBOcULh27p7aMsvg=w1280-h960-no



    EDIT: I'm on 5.5.1U and I followed FlimFlam69's guide on github for the hacking part of it.

    Running Mocha seems to work for me. I move them into a folder that gets removed in my RedNAND setup and then load Mocha, then restart and they go away.

    Are any of these applications saved on your NAND? Besides your Haxchi based app, move them to the USB device and they will disappear.

    As far as I know, the [?] blocks are actually applications that are installed on NAND in SysNAND and not on RedNAND. If you try to delete these blocks from RedNAND, you will be given an error message. Moving the NAND-in-SysNAND-only applications to USB will replace the blocks. If you can't replace them whatsoever, create a folder, drag all the [?] blocks into that folder, and drag the folder all the way to the last page of your Wii U menu.

    So wouldn't that mean if you install games on a CFW, you'll get those ? squares when you run the stock nand?

    If you install games to NAND in a sigpatched SysNAND (not to USB), the [?] blocks will appear in their place on RedNAND.
