    Hi. I'm new to Wii U hacking and i want to understand some things.
    1.I installed mocha cfw and hacked also vwii mode. I want to perform a system restore. How to uninstall both hacks(mocha and vwii)?

    2.On some guides for uninstalling haxchi says that you have to delete the ds game from data management and reinstall the original game from nintendo eshop. The reinstall is necessary in order to complete the process or is optional? If it is necessary what happens if the game in the future will be unavailable on the eshop?

    3.I read some rules for the CBHC that you need to follow. I want to know if it is the same for the haxchi cfw:
    move ds game to usb=brick?
    system restore on haxchi cfw=brick?
    install the same ds game from eshop or reinstall with wup installer=brick?
    update wii u(if there is gonna be ever a new update)=brick?
    delete the user profile that used to buy the ds game=brick?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. In terms of vWii hacking, have you only installed the Homebrew Channel? Or have you installed custom IOS images as well? Or forwarders? You will need to remove all of these manually, making sure that the Homebrew Channel is the LAST to go (without it, you can't remove the other stuff). In terms of Mocha CFW, you actually haven't installed anything on your console. Mocha exists purely on the SD Card. Though if you installed things on your console's memory while in Mocha, you should remove those as well, but you don't need to be in Mocha to do this.
    2. If you are using regular Haxchi, simply removing it using Data Management is fine. Re-downloading it is purely so that you can play the DS game you overwrote again. If you are using "Cold-boot" Haxchi (CBHC), you should run the CBHC uninstaller first (built in to the installer app), to restore the console's normal boot cycle. Then you can delete the VC game.
    3. For regular Haxchi, it is pretty darn hard to brick your console. Moving the game to a USB will not cause issues, performing a system format simply means you must re-download it the game, re-installing the game means you need to re-install Haxchi within it. Updating your console may break the payloads that are within the modified VC game, but will not brick your console. Deleting the user profile that holds the VC game will not brick your console, but will likely lock you out of using Haxchi.
    If there's anything I can elaborate on, please let me know, as I kinda rushed writing this.

    First of all thanks for the quick and detailed reply. I want to ask a couple of other things. It doesn't mean that i'm gonna try them, i just want to be informed.
    1.For the vwii hacking i was just in the beginning of the process, i have just installed the homebrew channel. So i guess i can safely removed it. But what will happen if i don't remove it and perform a system restore? It will be still there? Let's say on mocha cfw i have a couple of games on the internal memory. If i don't delete the Homebrew Launcher and the games and perform a system restore, will delete just everything or it will cause any problems?
    2.Ok
    3.About deleting the user profile you said that it will lock me out of using haxchi. In that case i have to reinstall haxchi from the beginning?
    Thanks again.

    It will either still be there or it will be wiped, i don't think that system restore does anything other than format Wii U's MLC.

    1. I think it stays there, but don't quote me. The only time I ever formatted a Wii console, I had already removed the Homebrew Channel.
    2. :D
    3. Yes, you must re-download and re-install your DS VC underneath a valid user account. (I think)
