    So i was following this guide and installed Haxchi (going for CBHC) and it says
    But for me it's as follows
    • None -> Boots into Homebrew Launcher
    • (A) -> Attempts to go into WiiU home menu and hangs
    Should I re-install my Haxchi? If so, what might I done incorrectly?

    You must reinstall Haxchi everytime you alter it's config.txt (Using Haxchi Installer)
    This is not the case for CBHC but Haxchi itself.

    I don't think I ever edited the config.txt though, are you saying that by just installing Haxchi, I edited it? So I have to Install it, delete it, reinstall the 3ds VC title, and then install it again?

    no, edit the config.txt, then reinstall with the haxchi installer. the config.txt goes in a certain location with the game you're exploiting, so it needs to be reinstalled if u want to edit any of the buttons. this only takes like 5 seconds, so it's nothing major.

    It seems that either I worded my initial question incorrectly. However, I decided to look at my config.txt and see what's up.
    So if I'm reading this right, doing nothing goes to hbl, A = launching fw.img and B = sysmenu?

    And the reason why my console hangs while holding A is because I don't have a fw.img?

    your config.txt looks fine. the console will hang if it can't find the file. your fw.img should be on the root of your sd card with that config.txt to work.

    One more question

    So I don't really need a fw.img unless I'm planning to run Mocha or rednand? and I can just ignore holding A and just hold B instead to boot into a sigpatched nand normally?

    fw.img isn't needed at all anymore. and, yes, your console should boot into sig patched sysNAND by holding B.

    However your config.txt file reads is how HaxChi will respond. The guide assumes that you have made the changes to the config. You can use HaxChi to boot into HaxChi CFW (sysmenu option) or any other homebrew you want. You can point the other buttons to elf files to launch homebrew if you want. Just know that if you don't first use HaxChi to boot to system menu then you won't be in CFW.

    Also like mentioned above. You can change the config.txt file on your SD card to configure HaxChi however you like. You must re-install HaxChi for the changes to take effect.

    Or you could do what i used to do and manually replace the file yourself if you are more of a power user

    there's that too. I have the wupclient commands for that along with manually installing haxchi by itself on psx-place, in my wii u tutorials thread. much easier with ftpii everywhere though, but this was before that app existed. :P u just need the title id of the game in question which I think u can find on the haxchi github. there may be other locations for it, but that's what I've always used. :)
