    People who need this shouldn't even use CBHC.

    The first post explains everything you need to do and how you should do it in the first post of the thread.
    I'm not mad at anything. I'm just saying CBHC is something that you should only mess with if you know what your doing. If you need this thread you clearly don't know what your doing.

    Does the IR sensor and the GC controller adapter count as USB devices? Just making sure

    Good FAQs. People will still ask questions which are answered here and in the first post of the CBHC thread but maybe it will cut down on those. You should add that people don't need to uninstall/reinstall when a new version of CBHC comes out. They can just run the new CBHC installer. Also skipping versions is no problem. A lot of people ask questions related to this.

    You should put the info section first, to explain what is CBHC.
    Maybe you could also explain that it's replacing haxchi, because a lot of users think they have both haxchi AND cbhc because they launched both homebrew installation.

    CBHC is actually haxchi but with coldboot support, and with removed config.txt support. when installing CBHC (which means "Cold Boot HaxChi") it's replacing the old haxchi with the "cold boot" version.

    You could add that CBHC does not use config.txt anymore, only Haxchi (non cold boot) does.

    You MUST add that user should NOT install haxchi without uninstalling CBHC first. They will brick!


    another question you can add, users don't need a patched system to install CBHC, they can do it from HBL without any sigpatch or cfw.

    I'll probably give more Q/A later, as I remember the frequently asked ones.

    They won't brick.
    Failed lot of times CBHC installation (USB plugged)
    So
    1st time: Title has haxchi, replaced system.xml... cbh with haxchi config
    2nd time: Plain title, can't exit to sysmenu. Recovered with browserhax.

    Btw, thanks for the FAQs

    no, what I meant is that if you install CBHC (succesfully), but then just replace it with the normal haxchi without uninstalling the coldboot system.xml, then you will be in a reboot loop brick.
    Based on your settings.txt, you can fix it (by launching HBL) or not.
    if you replace CBHC with Haxchi direct, you will 100% brick (there's no settings.txt at all, and it will always reboot loop)

    for the FAQ "can I update CBHC" you can add that they have to unplug USB too.

    haha, that's unfortunate that we need to tell them to not touch something called "don't touch me", but that's a reality

    It is best to target the lowest common denominator and give as many warnings as possible because CBHC is quite a risky exploit. Moreso than A9LH, arguably.

    I made the switch to CBHC yesterday and am very glad I did, but I think I read the instructions about 6 times because I was pretty nervous about it.

    I burried the 'Don't Touch Me' app inside a folder so it will never be touched. Purely curious, what happens if it is run? I certainly won't be risking it.
