    Hello lads,

    After getting up for the billionth time today to reset frozen WiiU (Im doing something with Retroarch) I was wondering...
    Would it be possible to implement a power off or reset button combo into the system?
    How hard would it be if possible? Would any of the devs be interested in making it?
    Just a wild idea but im sure many would be very happy with it :)

    Is this even possible? If the system freezes then it doesn't perform any operations more and the only options are to either pull the plug or hold the power button for at least 4 seconds to perform a forced shutdown. To perform the first solution you can buy a remote controllable electrical outlet.

    I was thinking about that tbh but was hoping it could be done without additional hardware purchases
    I mean if I had a penny for everytime my WiiU froze, I would be driving that Porsche now.

    It's as impossible as soft resetting with a DS flashcart when the game froze

    We'd need low level access equivalent to B9S on 3DS to do it (if even possible. Basing on info with Rosalina menu).

    If we just needed to run CFW to have full control, then a 3DS on menuhax would've been full control of the system.
