    Coldboot hack is not safe nor stable (also you can't get rid of it once installed) but sig patched sysnand is fine as long as you don't do dumb stuff (Which is isn't much to do on the wii u unlike 3ds)

    Don't mess with system titles.
    If you don't do that, it's the safest method. Bexause RedNAND will brick if you update for whatever reason, because there's no RedSEEPROM.

    Wait, we can install things to to sysNAND? Seriously all I need is WiiU games, E-shop games and retroarch on my main menu and I'm good. Can we do that now?

    E-shop games and the like work but since they use fake tickets so you'll need to use cfwbooter for a 14mb fw.img that enables sigpatches on SysNand every time you reboot your console for them to work. You can boot a custom HB channel from the sysnand home menu though allowing you to boot retroarch and cfwbooter offline and without the use of an internet browser though. Also using SysNand saves you a good 33GB on the SD card if you don't care about the layer of protection provided with RedNand

    If you don't install SysConfigTool or you edit system.xml you're ok

    Btw, anyone else have a yellow led blinking problem after shutdowns the wiiu with cfw enable? Everytime I power off the console (if I previously run cfw)it seems power off fine, red led, after some minutes the console itself blink with a yellow light n I can't power up until I detach the power cord n reconnect to energy again.

    All you have to do for this is disable power savings and quick start and the light should stop. Worked for me at least.

    1. Yes, it's not safe.
    2. No, it's stable.
    3. No, you can remove it.

    Care to explain the last point?
    You can't remove it because everytime you sysnand boots it boots the ds vc.

    It depends on what you launch using haxchi, if you launch homebrew launcher, run iosuhax and revert your changes to the xml.
