    Introduction

    Me, NexoCube, just decided to made this thread, to warn people about the risk encountered while installing coldboothax.

    I know that @KevinX8 made a thread about it, but it wasn't very clear ...

    Bricked console

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/i-bricked-my-wii-u-because-i-changed-system-xml-flash-nand-guide.448856/
    http://www.wiiubru.com/rip/

    Exavold hasn't been added to this list because he didn't publicly told about it, i hope he will not be angry when he will se that...

    Main subject

    As you may know, i have bricked my Wii U the 11th of November (happy remembrance day for me...)
    The reason it bricked was that smealum trick that were supposed to allow coldboothax was bullshit, for me :P (i heard some poeple made it work on redNAND)

    There's a "NOTE" that says that messing with this file could easily brick our Wii U and he was right...

    I highly recommand not trying to install it, it will 99% brick your Wii U

    I hope you will be cleverer than me and some others mate. (@Exavold ;) )

    Final notes

    As i bricked my Wii U, this will probably be my last thread on the Wii U sections of this website ...
    I'm going to now, work on 3DS stuff !
    Thanks for that beautiful year on the Wii U scene :) (even if i haven't made anything... publicly ;) )

    I'm usually rather quick to jump on new hack/exploit methods...however, RedNAND has been working great for me and I stuck with it...glad I did.....

    Well , I bricked even though I'm pretty sure I installed everything as I should have.

    If I had to take a guess , I think it was because I installed the "Haxchi title" on USB where It should have been on NAND.

    I can upload my system.xml , if you want.

    EDIT : On RedNAND , I tried setting the default title id as system config tool and it worked perfectly (because the title was on NAND ?)

    And don't get me wrong , the only person I blame is MYSELF.
