I installed Haxchi and I bought a game so I could unlock my console, but it bricked when I tried to complete the process. Currently only shows a black screen and the controller has no connection with the console.
I made a video:

I made a backup of the NAND files, but I realized that the flash procedure is complicated.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to fix that WiiU console?

Wait, so all you did was go to install Haxchi? Did you mess around with CBHC? I ask this because standard Haxchi shouldn't be able to brick a console.

This doesn't have to be a brick. Sometimes also on my end, the Wii U fails to boot. You will need to hold the power button and try again.

But if it is a Brick, the only way to recover would be to solder a SD Card to your nand and flash the backup. If I recall correctly.

Also helpful would be the exact steps you did take to mod your system.

I tried to put a permanent hack by buying a game from the online store, but in a certain model things went awry and this problem came up.

Тhis is the guide I followed:

In your case, you'd just need the slc, since the backup was made before the brick. If you can't solder, I'd suggest just buying another system without gamepad.

Did you buy your Wii U used by chance? If so, it's possible the person who owned it before hacked the system, and then later reverted it to stock. My understanding is even if that happens, if you try and install the permanent hack via CBHC and you install the same DS title the person before you did to install CBHC on that your system will brick. I could be wrong, but I recall hearing something like that. If however you've only ever been the owner of that Wii U and it was never hacked, then I genuinely don't know how anything could have gone wrong.

Theoretically, that's a possibility. Tickets remain even after a format. Other than manually, I know of no way to remove them. I think it works like that with the 3ds. It's possibly to allow you to redownload content even if a game is removed from the eshop.

I learned a few days ago that wii content is still active but the ticket gives a 404 error.

Тried reinstall haxchi and the main menu no longer appears. I see only a black screen and no connection to the controller :( Before that it was booting from the files that were on the SD card.

I still haven't been able to fix the problem. Is there a new method to unbrick WiiU consoles without having to solder and rewrite the NAND?
