    You can get it hardmodded if you have a nand backup but it is warned not to do it for a reason.

    I dont want people to get too excited, but we may be able to use the gamepad's "fast boot menu" to bypass the system.xml file that bricks and go straight to haxchi/HBL
    What happens exactly when you turn on the wii u? Specifically, does it show the WiiU/Nintendo screen before the error code shows?

    I disabled it because I didn't want to risk an update in standby.

    Well everything comes with pros and cons and the con of not enabling it is preventing any form of recovery :/

    I think this guy is thinking what I'm thinking, since quick start temporarly sets your default title to whatever you choose on the quick start menu it should in theory allow you to bypass this horrible brick, but ofc if you did not enable it its hopeless =(

    He had no NAND backup so hardmod ain't an option so yeah no recovery options

    Not true, a backup won't be needed given enough time. boot1 or boot2 will become custom, and recovery options will be available.
