Well, I will make this sort

Well, I'm on 5.5.5 and the original region system is Japan, hacked Mocha. I installed Wii U menu [005...200] on NUSspli to sys (stupid me), then my Wii U can not load normally, it's just freeze...
Just found out that maybe that Wii U menu is not working on 5.5.5
So is there any way I could delete that Wii U menu? How can I access to homebrew? Please help. Many thanks.
I can access to Wii menu and it look fine...

In case you're using Tiramisu or CBHC it should be posible to bypass the Wii U menu, booting directly into HBL and fixing from there.
For Tiramisu hold (+) while booting (in case you have quicklaunch activated choose Wii U menu, then hold (+) right after the selection). Then choose "Homebrew Launcher" at the Tiramisu Boot Selector.

In case you're not coldbooting into a CFW you're probably out of luck. No idea if there's any way to fix this from vWii or if it's possible to boot from quicklaunch into your HBL entry point and from there into HBL w/o using the Wii U menu at all.

//EDIT: Just looked at the Video. Doesn't look like a coldboot CFW but there might still be a small chance. What CFW are you using?

//EDIT²: A way that might work:
This is completely untested and maybe overcomplicated through. So tell us what CFW you're using before trying that. Also don't try in case you're using CBHC.

I'm using Tiramisu, before that is Mocha
Well, I’m trying everything to access Envir Loader or Homebrew channel, but still nothing. Well at least I can go to vWii

You can access the homebrew launcher, right? If you can, install UThemeMii from @Xpl0itU, put a custom theme in the correct folder and install it. In addition to having unbricked your console, you will also have a custom theme! This bricks are easy to fix.

I haven't used theme manager as of yet (not even on my sd card), but I did brick a week or two ago testing if themes could be ftp'd to the wii u after so many bricked their systems doing it with tiramisu. it worked every time but once, when reverting back, but I went into the homebrew launcher and retransferred the theme files, and it was unbricked. not sure what happened that one time as the byte size was identical unless something got corrupted somehow. the brick would freeze the console at the wii u logo, like before you get to the home menu. no issues now. :D

If you can press the sync button and see the sync menu while in the spotpass thing at the start of the wii u menu you can use bluubomb to install tiramisu, its sigpatches may allow you to launch successfully the wii u menu, so no further action is required
