    I'm new to this.. I don't even know if I posted this in the right place...anyway.

    I installed HaxCh over a DS game and now its The homebrew channel. I didn't install ColdBoot HaxChi. I'm kinda confused, is HaxChi CFW so I can install stuff? or was just a way to make the HB channel permanent?

    Both.
    If you follow our guides then it would be explained.
    Give my redNAND-free guide a look, or give wiiubru.com/guide a look.
    Even Kafluke's noob guide. You will understand everything by then.

    RedNand? I followed a video guide and stopped after it installed. I need a USB or EXHD? I have one that is already formatted by the wiiu

    Outdated video guide. Alright, do everything right from the start.
    redNAND isn't superior to anything and all it does is bring disappointment to average user.
    It was created for developers. Please follow our guides instead so you will not come back and cry that your redNAND corrupted like many other users.

    exHDD is more prefered. Pendrives are easily killed because Wii U just attacks it with random R/W.

    I would suggest installing CBHC. It is haxchi except you dont have to boot into it every time, it autoboots when you turn your console on, patching everything on boot.

    Don't coldboot to redNAND tho. or Coldboot in redNAND since it's useless.

    redNAND was created so you can mess around.
    Some are using it to their advantage by testing Wii U menu theming and other stuff.

    I'm myself just using sysNAND with few modifications and that's all.

    Yup! Just set it to Autoboot to sysmenu and then just press A on sysmenu option.
    It's a CFW. Also, format your SDCard and dump your NAND before you CBHC. It will save your life later on.

    He didn't. He suggested CBHC.

    Also to answer your questions. Haxchi just makes it so you're in a CFW mode which allows you to run unsigned stuff. CBHC is haxchi but it automatically boots when you start the wii u. So no need to run it every time. But if you delete or removee your nnid or format your Wii U then CBHC can brick your Wii U

    Get the latest release from his github repo, and also find the nand tools for your wii u and make a nand backup in case anything goes wrong.

    Don't feel pressured to install CBHC if you're uncomfortable with it. Just edit the config.txt for Haxchi and reinstall it.
    This way it will load CFW/sig patches by default and Homebrew Launcher if you load it and hold A. This setup works great for me. You can assign stuff to other buttons as well like WUP Installer and Mocha CFW if you think you might need it.
