    I have a WiiU with Haxchi, Mocha CAFE redNAND and several installed titles. I have some Wii titles installed on my home menu (I own them legally but installed them by downloading them from utikdownloader)

    Whenever I try to run them, they reboot the console into SysNand. What's wrong?

    Thank you. I tried searching for the answer and didn't find any. So should I boot from SysNAND?

    Yes you need to boot them in sysnand they also need to be installed while you are in sysnand if you install them in rednand they will still show in sysnand but will fail to load.

    only if you double install them and that is a waste of storage space when you can just install once and boot from sysmenu

    exactly rednand is pointless in my opinion. when you can do everything rednand does in sysnand plus a lot more.

    The only uses are SEEPROM/OTP Redirection & random apps

    true but even then they are only useful if a new update comes out.

    We could try to downgrade redNAND with ecTool lol
