    Hi there, I've had no issue of this for a while (at least to my knowledge) but for some reason, whenever I try to load certain Wii U Homebrew Apps such as OurLoader, it just reboots back to the Homebrew Launcher. I currently have CBHC installed with autoboot and I really want to know what's going on. I've seen that this has happened to multiple others too. I also just picked up a few PAL games and now can't play them because of this. I appreciate your help and hope to resolve this soon.

    Hello,

    Try formatting your SD card and then correctly putting your folders back on this SD card.

    Ok, will try this now. So do I just backup everything on it, format it, and then put everything back?

    Yeah I heard but it's pretty annoying because it also happens with some other homebrew apps

    Yeah, it just finished formatting and I'm now putting everything back. Like said, some apps will load fine but some don't. I'm beginning to think that it's possibly an issue with my SD Card because I've had it for a long time

    Earlier I was playing Brawl and accidentally took a snapshot but noticed it wouldn't let me save it to the SD Card because it couldn't recognize the device plugged into the SD slot. I've been looking to upgrade SD Cards soon regardless so if this doesn't work, it's not the end of the world.

    SD card format in FAT 32 (recommend) ??

    do not use a micro SD card, preferably an SD card (with brand).

    maybe an SD card problem.

    Yep, it's formatted Fat32 and is an actual SD Card (not micro)

    It's currently moving everything back right now so I'll update you when it's done

    Tried it and still no luck. If it helps, it's a Lexar Platinum II 16 GB SDHC Card. Also forgot to mention but sometimes my laptop doesn't read it until I unplug and replug it in. I know my Wii U is reading it since Homebrew loads but yeah so I think it's just done. I'll try to order a new one soon. Thank you for your help.
