    I successfully installed the homebrew channel. Then I tried launching the homebrew browser app to download some emulators. During the launch, the screen said an enception (DSI) error occurred. And it just stayed there. I couldn't turn the system off. Even after holding down the power button. So I unplugged it. Now when I turn it back on, I get a message on the gamepad saying that it cannot connect to the Wii U console and to turn it off, move closer to it and turn it back on. I've been doing that but it still won't connect. Also there's nothing on the tv screen when this happens. Just a black screen. What do I do? I hope it's not bricked.

    Good news. It came back on. Turns out the gamepad had to be charged up. But still, why did that exception (DSI) error happen?

    from what I hear it does, do you have a USB flash? you will have better loading with that temporarily. check out walmart or target for a cheap 500gig HDD or look for a USB to SATA adapter and find a cheap hard drive from an old computer. works wonders!

    EDIT: actually it doesnt, I believe it was configurable usb loader that loaded SD. sorry for misinformation.

    EDIT: honestly I've lost my train of thought on the difference in either....lol

    USB Loader GX works for pen drivers and hard drives, any USB storage works.
