I'm bricked. Error 160-0101. Can I recover with a backed up nand?

    So I bricked my Wii U in grand fashion. The mod Gods were quite impressed with my level of disregard to all written warnings. Anyhow, I decided to factory reset it while CBHC installed.

    Now, I boot to an error screen. Error Code: 160-0101

    I do have a backed up NAND including mlc.bin, otp.bin, seeprom.bin, slc.bin, and slccmtp.bin.

    The dump was made after CBHC was installed.

    Can I recover with my dump. If so, how? Hardmod?

    Thanks for any help.

    The console is basically a Potato now, and a hard mod is the only way to recover it.

    Thanks for the reply. Is there a guide you can link to that explains how to recover with a hardmod?

    Hardmodding the eMMC is pretty simple, but hardmodding the NAND is much harder and requires extra hardware. I think you need to hardmod both to restore a NAND backup.

    Another bricked cbhc wiiu down the drain!!! I did only say just a while ago these are happening with members at least twice a week now. That list is going to be huge @wiiubru.com in a few years time, it is sad though its happening on such a regular basis, what a waste of a good console, R.I.P WiiU:(

    Edit: I still say they should lock the cbhc thread down and make it so your forced to make the cbhc.elf file from the master-folder. Then if you can complete that process I would of thought your knowledge would be very good installing it! or uninstalling it for that matter as well.

    It's not a problem with CBHC. It's a user error. How many times to we tell users not to format after installing CBHC? You can't force people to read the instructions.

    Every single console mod out there has brick risks when you don't follow instructions. Stop blaming CBHC. It's user error

    At least @nooburger was smart enough to get otp.bin. all is Not lost.

    Buy a teensy++ and you should be able to solder it and fix your brick!

    I need a bricked Wii U with a nand backup so I can write an unbrick guide. Looks like a prime candidate. You wanna send it to me?

    That's my summer project.

    Hell if I can't find one I'm days away from just purposefully bricking my own so I can write a good step by step for unbricking

    You would actually be able to "unbrick" a bricked Wii U without having a nand backup for it? *just curious*

    PS: Nintendo we know you read these threads, give us the tools!! Lol (one can only dream)

    I just don't bother with cbhc. Most games I play run in ofw sysNAND via usb, and anything else is a quick haxchi launch away.

    At least you have a full backup. So you are able to unbrick it with a hard mod and soldering. If you have the skills required to install the hard mod anyway.

    To be honest, installing the hard mod to the WiiU motherboard isn't hard at all. Soldering in general isn't hard, if you got the right tools for the job.

    I bought a Hakko soldering station a while back, and I bought an extra soldering tip with it, it's an extra fine tip made just for things like this. It's when the JTAG mod first came out for the Phat Xbox 360 consoles, so I had to try installing the JTAG mod myself, because I love hard modding consoles by soldering onto the consoles motherboard. Lol.

    If you do install the hard mod your self, you should practice soldering on dead PCB's or dead motherboards. Also, do your research about SMD soldering, you will learn a lot in just a few hours of reading written tutorials about soldering on motherboards and small PCB's.

    I wish I had another WiiU so I can try a hard mod to restore a bricked WiiU with a backup. Lol.

    Good luck! And dont forget to come back to tell us how it went for you.

    Then the forum would be filled with people complaining about how to compile, compiling errors or people spreading around elfs which could cause other issues e.g. older versions, malware, etc.

    I don't think the bricks will stop until a system title based hack comes along and/or a bootmii style recovery method.

    Dump your NAND and then use SysConfigTool to delete Wii U menu.
    Easy brick.
