    I have been trying to hack my wii U and I managed to get haxchi on my system menu. I skipped part 4 of the guide and went here:

    https://github.com/FlimFlam69/WiiUTutorial/wiki/5:-Installing-Coldboot-Haxchi

    but now when I try to boot haxchi it won't work! also I couldn't get WUP installer to install no matter what I tried to do so I just skipped it..please help I don't know what to do do I even need WUP installer.

    Ok that's good to know thanks. Now I still can't install WUP installer meaning I have to manually access HBL still EVERYTIME from using the net browser. Why? also my haxchii VC game says "don't touch me" now. Why?

    So why can't I get the homebrew launcher and why won't WUP installer install it?.. it's giving me some sort of "getinfo" error please help..

    You don't install wupinstaller.

    Because your Haxchi game is now CBHC. If you mess with it, you'll brick. The guide mentions this several times.

    Which version of wupinstaller are you using? With the latest wupinstaller y mod I believe you place the HBL channel files (.app .h3 .cert .tmd and .tik files) in SD:\install\(any folder) then you just load wupinstaller from HBL and install.
    It should install just fine if you are in CFW.

    You probably skipped important steps and that's why you weren't able to install the HBC channel originally. Anyway, that shouldn't matter now. CBHC is installed, unless something went wrong during install and the coldboot part of it failed to install, that would explain why you can't install the HBL channel.

    ok but I deleted it now because when I tried to instal the HBL it kept not working despite making an "install" folder. No / right?


    I want it because it's a title installer and I have backups I want to install. And now that I deleted the installer I can't even find it on the HBL shop now..

    I have it in the right places but it still won't install. The only way I can access HBL is by holding down the home button to access it. Please someone just link me WUP installer already because the link I found was dead and after I tried deleting it it's not showing up on the shop anymore.

    it informs you not to touch as a warning to users , as deleting and moving the file can brick or should i say could have bricked fix94 has put several restrictions in place to prevent this , but as a warning just leave it alone is what is inferred by "dont touch me".

    If after installing CBHC no menu pops up when you turn on your console then you may have run into the very rare case in which CBHC did not properly install and your Haxchi installation still runs, in this case just go back into the homebrew launcher and try installing it again.

    all info you need is in the OP of the cbhc thread.. heres the link : https://gbatemp.net/threads/cbhc-v1-5-coldboot-haxchi-cfw.452615/

    - Download the latest wupinstaller y mod here and extract it to the SD card: https://github.com/Yardape8000/wupinstaller/releases
    - Download the HBL channel version from here https://github.com/dimok789/homebre...nload/v2.1/homebrew_launcher_channel.v2.1.zip
    - Make an "install" folder on the SD card root if it doesn't exist
    - Make a "HBC" folder inside the "install" folder.
    - Extract the HBL channel files to the new "HBC" folder.
    - Load up HBL through the browser exploit, launch wupinstaller y mod and use it to install HBC.
    Let me know if it still doesn't work.
    Edit: @pwsincd might be right. If you still can't install HBC following these steps, then it's likely CBHC isn't correctly installed.

    I installed HBC but I just get a black screen. When I try to boot it from the system menu I mean.

    Also can wup installer install backups to an external HDD?


    Scratch that it's working now. My issue now though is it's not recognizing my USB external HDD. I'm gonna try a few of the other slots and get back. I think it mentioned it has to be formated for wii U? what does that mean? does it need to be FAT32?

    EDIT:Nevermind just had to format.


    I got another question can I go online with this and should I do the redNAND step? I skipped it.

    You don't need redNAND. Install Haxchi and then install CBHC and tell it to autoboot to system menu. You'll be good after that

    You can. Sigpatched is a CFW.

    And by the way, you won't risk a brick unless you delete or move Haxchi to USB.

    If you install a game that says CFW only and youre not set up for it, it will simply fail to run. Not brick

    You're talking about the Haxchi file that I turned my VC game into right? also what happens if I delete that file?

    EDIT: whoops sorry didn't read properly.

    Also does it patch my console automatically? like how will I update my hacked wii U in the future incase a new console update comes out?

    We don't know what will happen in the future with updates. But in the CBHC OP there are instructions to uninstall so I'm sure it will be fine
