    Just bought a Wii U with CFW installed (which idk what it is), and when I turn on, it loads the first logo screen and after that, goes to a black screen and then it shows other loading screen and after that, the -5 error, that one that can't find the file.. I don't know if it has CBHC installed, because id doesn't show any info at boot, and tried a lot of homebrews but didn't worked.. can you guys help me?

    That error is related to the SDCard and file placement, try looking the Wii U hacking guide and place all the files in the SD as the guide says.

    Don't worry is just a matter of putting the right files at the right places.

    it sounds like the system is trying to boot into the homebrew launcher at boot or some other app on the sd card. have you tried another sd card?

    I believe, if that has happened, you'll get a system error.

    when you turn the system on, do you see a black screen with Autoboot CBHC or something like that in white letters?

    Well, It gives me the -5, so the system is not bricked, thank god x)
    The last owner has set a app that i still don't know what it is, or a specific file is missing..
    I heard about a kind of CBHC cleaner that we use our pc to remove from a extracted slc, but can't remember the name

    No, that's why I think Haxchi was installed over CBHC, I can't even access CBHC menu through the Sync button

    Unfortunately not, when I turned it on, it brings the -3 error, also, the last owner installed the cfw three years ago, and then the dude who sold to me probably didn't knew the console was already with CFW on it, and tried install Haxchi on it, he even told me that

    I think installing haxchi over cbhc just leaves you with haxchi, it shouldn't mess up the system, show me what you have on your sd once

    Oh, by the way, I saw before you said you had to press the sync button to get the menu in cbhc, I think it is actually the home button on the game pad

    IOSUHax/CBHC/Haxchi/Mocha SD loader error codes list:
    -1 : HBL related, can't open or not enough memory to open HBL elf file
    -2 : HBL related, entry point not found
    -3 : SD Card not found
    -4 : SD card found, can't mount it
    -5 : SD Card found, can mount it, can't find/read/open the file
    -6 : not enough memory to open file

    remember that all the apps need to be on the WiiU/apps not only apps,because thats for the Wii side

    do you have a screenshot of the wiiu folder?

    Agreed, something is not in the right place on the sd, I think I've seen this before a few times
