Hello friends. I recently posted a related topic in the Wii U Hacking Board: http://gbatemp.net/threads/error-code-105-3102-due-to-vwii-hbc.355718/ If it's really too hard to click a link and read it, here is a basic rundown: I have been getting error 105-3102 from trying to connect to the eShop or update my Wii U. Various attempts at fixes through my internet configuration did not solve it. I had called Nintendo and they told me that the error was caused by 'tampering' with the Wii U console. It's been suggested that I format my Wii U to see if that works. If not, sell the Wii U for parts and just cut my losses. Nintendo told me they will not even look at it if it's modded. I'm looking pretty boned right about now... After searching the forums here, I've found these other instances of this error: Warning: Spoilers inside! A user mentions the issue happening on an older version of the Wii U firmware. No Solution: http://gbatemp.net/threads/basic-dos-and-do-nots-of-vwii-modding.339337/page-6 Not very detailed explanation. No Solution: http://gbatemp.net/threads/error-10...riginal-wii-shop-channel.354455/#post-4771144 User claims it has nothing to do with SoftModding and that it is an error by Nintendo. No resolution: http://gbatemp.net/threads/error-105-3102.349897/ User tries various fixes, but non work. User formats and has Nintendo repair the console: http://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-u-system-update-error-code-105-3102.348504/ Google is not yielding any results either. All that I find on Google are articles about Japanese Consoles having the error and receiving a patch for it, but those articles are old and state that the error has not been seen elsewhere. I've spoken with some users on Miiverse who have also said they have been getting the error and have yet to find a solution. My conclusion is that this is a relatively isolated error that may or may not have to do with Virtual Wii Modding. So isolated that my very recent other topic about the subject got 0 replies, but nearly 200 views. A few handfuls of people getting the error and, like me, searching all over for a solution? Let's find one you guys! *** I'm considering formatting my Wii U. I've seen some people say that it works, and others say that it does nothing. I'm thinking that I want to wait a little longer to see if anything new develops before giving it a go, as I really don't want to lose all of my saves and installed games. Though I've also been told that if I want Nintendo to look at my Wii U, I would HAVE to format it to remove all traces of hacking. But formatting it wouldn't even do that, would it? I've looked in to (a little bit anyway) the process of virginizing a Wii console. However, it seems very dangerous, and I'm not seeing any guides for Wii U virginizing.
