    I bouhgt a hacked wii u with an external hard drive.Games are loading to main screen when i boot the console.But theres no haxchi or homebrew channel icon.I tried browserhax with hbw 1.3 files in sd card on u.drg.li but gave up after 20 times of failure or so.Just a few times homebrew launcher started but no icon shown just floating bubles on a blue screen.I use a 2 gb sd card formatted fat32.I tried different sd cards also.Got really nervous after struggling for hours.

    Try using the updated Hombrew Launcher 1.4 and follow Kaflukes noob guide on installing homebrew

    @Kafluke got anything else?

    I think 5.5.2 is unstable. just keep trying. if you do enter the homebrew launcher, make sure something like haxchi installer is in the wiiu/apps/name of app/xxx.elf folder. if you want the apps to appear on the home menu, you need to install them which means getting into wup installer which in turn means getting into the homebrew channel. good luck.

    It's unstable, just keep trying. If I were you I would get the ds game needed so when it does load you can just patch the file and never have to worry again. You won't screw it up by keep trying

    If i delete the nintendo id saved before,can i still play the games in external hdd? I want to delete the id so that with a new one i can buy an exploitable game.And which game do you suggest?
    And is it harmful forcing the console ti shut down like that many times?

    Good advice. Looks to be an SD card issue.

    @OP Read the noob guide all the way through 1 time. It will help you understand what you have and how to have the hack you want.

    Just make certain that you aren't using CBHC first. From the sounds of it you aren't but to be sure cold boot the Wii u and watch the gamepad. Do you see any text that says anything about autobooting? If not, proceed to remove all NNIDs
