    i tried this bug over 6 times during the time i was recording.(my english is bad, doing re-records xD)
    and for security reasons i wont tell how its replicable on public, is there any way i can contact someone involved on the Homebrew community?

    The bug was found on a embed software of the Wii u OS (not downloaded from e-shop), so its a very easy to patch bug. (Examples of embeded software: E-shop, Disc channel, Settings, WiiTV, Internet Browser, etc)

    *Wiiu Version: latest 3.1.0U
    *Symptoms: The console Crashes, no buttons work on the gamepad, pro controller or touchscreen, if the power button is pressed for over 5 secconds a graphical bug appears as well as a hard click sound, causing the console to shut-down unexpectedly. After powering on it will sound the disc tray Twice and it will load the LAST ESTABLE SAVE (restore point).
    it will not record anything in the activity log(a rollback was made).

    No problem~

    I think Wiiubrew.org is your best shot tho.
    Those fellas only care about homebrew and documenting everything inside the Wii U
    No piracy there at all xd

    i think you find it on the browser, this is crash when you tray to open a video, if you power off you get a graphic bug, and in power up the console will load a restore point (the wii u have restore points ?)

    i think we can do somethink with the restore point, if the wii u load a restore, we can tray to force load a custom restore point wich have a hack install inside

    You do know that just because it crashes doesn't mean that it's useful, right? ;)

    Just sayin'.

    yes, but it crashes in a very different way, and the crash its replicable over and over and over, even its easy to do.
    i double checked everything.
    -power off and on the console with new save instructions (after playing a game), repeated bug process: Success
    -Power off and on the console from the power outlet with new save instructions , repeated bug process: success
    -ran from VWii from start and back to WiiU mode, repeated bug process: Success.
    -Cleared "relevant storage data", repeated bug process: Success

    Fact: This is a code Exception error, that causes to crash. and the power button hard reset on Wii U only works on wii u mode.

    ^If what you say is true then this needs to be communicated to the homebrew guys. Maybe one of the ADmin's can help?

    Yep. Gotta tell those homebrew guys, wherever they may be.

    You know, those guys with the homes and the brews.

    I would love to have a way to not let the Wiiu freeze randomly.
    It's a really buggy system.Various games can make the sytem crash.
    Even simple webrowsing can crash the system.
    Some games crash when entering the home menu a few times etc.

    Crediar just said that it might be useful so you never know until you try. It's definitely more useful than this post :lol:
