    Hi guys,
    I'm a happy Mocha CFW user since last week, and everything went fine during the installation.

    But, when i installed some Wii U titles with WUPInstaller on redNAND, my sysNAND show the same number of recent installed titles as "question mark channels".

    It seems like my sysNAND and redNAND are sharing some info about the installed items, but don't recognize them. I attached an photo showing my "? channels".

    Is something wrong with my redNAND? How can i fix this? I already read a lot here, but i didn't found anything about this problem.

    Thank you.

    Linked NANDs. Format your sysNAND and you should be fine.

    I didnt format my sysNAND or redNAND. So... maybe?
    Is that the reason why this is happening?

    Well, yes. But the problem is that these channels should not appear there, on sysNAND, since i installed them on my redNAND. :)

    Tks!

    Is "dangerous" to keep that way, just ignoring those "?"?

    That's what linked NANDs do. That's why usually the tutorials say to format your sysNAND. That is the reason it's happening lol. When you create a redNAND the NANDs have this weird bond with each other. You're seeing some of the effect of that bond. So you need to format the sysNAND to break the bond, formatting the redNAND will break your redNAND. It's also better to do this sooner than later. I've heard of bricks caused because of unlinked NANDs. So, basically, just go to sysNAND, go to Settings, then format the device from there. <3

    Also, yes. It's dangerous to have linked NANDs. We use redNAND for brick protection, right? When they're linked, you're pretty much taking away the brick protection.

    I get these when installing .app files, or when the Wii U crashes due to error 199-999.
    It blocks ftpiiu for some reason.
    Tapping them will tell you that the channel is corrupted, and needs to be deleted. Trying to delete them will report an error with deleting.
    I got rid of them by moving them into a folder and loading Mocha CFW.

    I had that happen one time when I accidentally created a package to install, but some files in the meta folder were not the right files. The title was three question marks, and the icon was a question mark.

    When I fixed the files in the meta folder, it installed correctly.

    Use TgaVerifier on your meta files

    Read the thread. It wasn't from invalid TGAs. They installed shit fine on redNAND, then those appeared on sysNAND. They're corrupt because sysNAND has no sig patches.

    ^^this. I had splatoon test fire installed, and I wanted to uninstall it, so I used system config tool. I had also used it to install the game to begin with though. if u have a question mark tile, u may be able to uninstall with system config tool, but I'm not really sure. u may just have to live with it. throw the games into a folder. since u have to sort games on both sysNAND and redNAND separately, it's not a big deal really.

    I couldn't delete the channels though. They'd always pop up an error.

    I'm not using Coldboot Hax as I share my Wii U and don't really like the idea of editing system files, especially ones that destroy the entire system when something goes wrong.
