    Hi. I updated my Wii U to 5.5.2 because I never really used homebrew or anything of the sort and otherwise I couldn't play Smash 4 online with friends. However it all resulted in a pretty big problem.
    You see, before setting up homebrew and all that stuff, I had bought Cloud, Lucas Ryu and Mewtwo as DLC characters, but once I got all the hacking stuff set up, I realized I could download every DLC character and stage, so I did it.
    Now after I updated my console to 5.5.2, I tried to start up the game but it told me to remove unnecessary DLC content, which makes sense given how I downloaded the remaining characters (Bayonetta, Corrin etc) for free. However the big problem is that the DLC is a single block of memory, so if I wanted to delete the characters I downloaded illegally, I had to delete the ones I bought as well, which I did since I figured I could download them again for free since I already did so once. Buut, I couldn't. After deleting every DLC content, I was unable to re-download the ones I once bought, since according to the game "I already have them downloaded." I assume this is because when I installed the remaining DLC characters for free, the ones I had were installed too, but I already deleted every single piece of DLC content from the Wii U memory.
    I wouldn't mind paying for the characters now, but I straight up can't. When I try to do so, the characters download, but once I start up the game I get the error 105-3687 and then the characters aren't in the roster.

    Is there a way to fix this? It's kind of a big deal to me since I use to play Cloud and Mewtwo a lot.

    Do you have access to Haxchi or CBHC?

    No... I hadn't used anything hacking related in a long time so I figured I would simply update.

    illegal dlc need cfw to launch so if you are not in cfw now is normal that you can launch he game wih thoses dlcs (and in this logic you cant use illegal dlc in any way if you dont have a hacking solution

    This is true but the problem I think the OP is running into is fake tickets in his sysnand. Simply removing the content using Wii U data management will not get rid of the fake tickets you installed. You'll need to hack your Wii U again to get rid of those and since you don't have HaxChi you've pretty much screwed yourself.

    Mocha users are seriously regretting now not using HaxChi.

    Maybe a system format? I don't know if that will get rid of fake tickets you installed while on CFW or not.

    With this tutorial you don't need CFW to play fake DLC (just to install) but I didn't update to 5.5.2 yet to see if it still works...

    Did you backup your OTP and SEEPROM? If not, then here are your options:
    • Wait for another homebrew entrypoint to be released (don't hold your breath)
    • Format the system and hope that fixes the problem

    I'm not familiar with formatting at all. Would I have any way to get back the digital games I downloaded before formatting, if it ended up working?

    After you format your device, you should be able to redownload any games linked to your NNID.

    Alright I guess I'll have to try that. Do you know if I'll lose my save data or if I have to do something to keep it?

    Format it's not a good idea since he will lose all the saves so I think it's better wait for a new exploit.

    It could be months or years before that happens, if it ever does.

    So, since I did not have much to lose, I formatted since all I was gonna lose were my for glory stats, and doing so did NOT solve the issue, so if anyone's suffering from the same, definitely don't try to format. I guess the only way out now is to wait for a new explot...
