    So today I booted up my Wii U like normal and I after I select a user it’s just stuck on the home menu but the home menu doesn’t show up (it doesn’t freeze the little icons in the background still move) my Wii U is modded but I only use the browser exploit, when I loaded up the exploit it said it didn’t detect the SD card, so I just rebooted the system like always, but after I turned it on again the situation that I explained earlier happened. I think it’s probably bricked but i wanted to be sure by asking here just in case

    UPDATE: just found out it wasnt bricked, the problem was the clock battery, i removed it and started the Wii U and is now working just fine

    do you have a usb drive plugged in? power off, then unplug it and power on if you do. it doesn't sound like any brick I've heard of.

    it's possibly bricked, but I've never heard of it doing that. I've heard of a brick, boot loop though.

    Yeah that's not typically what a Wii U brick looks like. I know you said you've tried booting without the usb drive connected, but have you also tried booting without an SD card inserted as well?
