So I guess Nintendo is now trying to prevent modding the Wii U...

    If I remember correctly, that update contained nothing but GDPR stuff. Also I think there have already been threads about this topic.

    Oh, I did a quick search and saw nothing about it. Maybe I used the wrong keywords. Sorry about that

    not entirely true on EUR region consoles they updated the privacy agreement thing which broke cold boot CFW

    Nah wasn't to prevent hax but rather the EUR privacy laws, the only hax broke were EUR cold boot cfw

    But for EU user they can uninstall CBHC, update then reinstall CBHC. Then again there is always the risk of brick for CBHC.

    Whoa wtf!? I turned off Nintendo updates days ago when I first ran the Haxchi exploit and 20 minutes ago the system updates have a red X with "system error", but now trying to access the HB channel just takes me to a black screen and my console says I'm on 5.5.3??

    I literally was able to access HB just before making this post. All I did just after this, was try to access retroarch. What happened?

    Adran_Marit, are you telling me to reboot or saying that it could be an 'odd reboot?"

    I had to reboot says my screen froze on a black screen when I tried access hb

    EDIT: I just checked and my setting still have Nintendo blocked from updates, so I have no idea how my system was updated to 5.5.3.

    It makes no sense :/

    Adran_Marit, ok I just checked... Rebooting fixed it and I can enter the HB channel so I assume I'm still modded, right?
    But why does my system say 5.5.3 when the update didn't go through? This is crazy

    Adran_Marit, when I try to access retroarch or an emulator straight from hb, I get a black screen with yellow text in the bottom left for a few seconds. The black screen ends up locking. Any ideas?
