    Hello, i turned on my wiiu and i wanted to go to vWii - system data corrupted. Couldnt go to recovery mode, so i try to update it from 5.5.1 to 5.5.2. Error. I tried to delete all data from system menu - Error. Removing sd card - Wiiu hangs. Removing sd card when trying to go to vWii - it hangs. Im running MOCHA CFW v0.2 and on startup there is menu where you can go directly to redNAND, but now my wiiu pad doesnt work. It says "Turn on the TV and Wii U console, then switch to the input settings for Wii U on the TV," so i cant access MOCHA menu. Synchronization doesnt work neither removing pad battery.

    any clues? so gutted.

    Your Wii U Gamepad won’t connect to your Wii U no matter what? I’m confused

    When you first turn on your Wii U from a cold boot do you see any writing on the gamepad screen like "Autobooting..."

    Only on tv. On gamepad it says “turn on tv and wiiu console.....” in different languages on white background If i try to sync controller with wiiu it gives me heart, spades... shapes to sync with wiiu, but there is no picture of them on tv to enter them in correct order. Im stuck in autoboot menu with wii u pad that is not synced with wiiu and with warning message of course.

    Anyone know what to do. What can i do to restore wiiu so i can see this sync code menu on tv. Unbrick? Will that do the trick? I must somehow avoid coldboot menu to enter in wiiu menu. Restoring NAND? Will that do the trick to get rid of coldboot? Any pointers will be appreciated.

    Darn, I can't come up with something edgy
    I highly advise not removing coldboothax as it may be your only way of getting yourself out of this bind. Do you have a wiimote by any chance? If so that might be your saving grace. the autoboot menu can be controlled by a previously synced wiimote. And if that doesn't work.... then you might be screwed.

    I tried with wiimote. It doesnt sync. Does syncing has to do anything with wiiu sensor?

    Sounds like a hardware failure. I don't know how the gamepad syncs, but I imagine it is through Bluetooth like the Wiimotes. I think the Wii U has 2.4/5.0Ghz wireless built in with the Bluetooth module, so you'll have to replace the whole thing.

    It could also be that the Bluetooth module died in the gamepad, but that isn't likely if you cannot sync a Wiimote either.

    could you plug in a GC controller via the USB adapter (if you by chance have one? or lay hands on one?) and get into menu that way? or know anyone with a fightstick that has pcb that allows use with Pokken ? never tried those options, just thinking aloud?

    What about borrowing a gamepad to see if it will sync?

    Try connecting your Wii U with the "old" Chinc Cable AV (The AV Cable that the Wii has).
    You Wii U should output there nomatter what.

    Dont have pro controller, no one i know has wiiu, whats the point with AV cable, wiiu already output coldboot menu. Is there a common shape pattern to sync, since i dont see shapes on tv, to try to connect wiiu pad to console.

    Your english makes it a bit hard to understand you.
    So in conclusion:
    You can see your Wii U Home Menu
    It Boots perfectly
    You can't sync any Controllers

    What's the default autoboot set to? I can't read the menu on your sideways blurry video

    Also, did you get a nand backup? You can do a hardmod restore to no CBHC if you did
