Hey,

I got a Wii U - Console only, but i own a few more - which is faulty. When i boot it it wants to factory reset. But nothing happens. Switching it off and on, it wants again to delete everything...

Also it is not possible to sync any controller.

Is it a brick or is it possible to get it to work.

Thank you all.

Shit... mmmm...
Could you check if you can get past the loop by holding ZL + ZR + L + R on the Gamepad when the process ends and turns to a black screen?

First: process doesnt end....
Second: there is no gamepad
Third: ut is not possible to sync any kind of controller!!!

There is nothing i can do only power it up and shut it down!

Is there a way to flash it again?

Wait...
There's no Gamepad... right.
Nope, you cannot get past this without a Gamepad at the moment. Sorry.

Yeah, i have gamepads from other wii us, but it impossible to sync them.
To sync them they want me to press some symbols matching them shiwing on the tv screen, but there is only the factory reset screen...

Any ideas?
Hardmod?
Power+eject to flash again? - but where to find image?

Oh... so they formatted the console and you bought it like that...
Nope, there's no solution AFAK. It should be hardmod, but you don't have the NAND backup I pressume.

Some News here:

While booting, it is possible to sync a controller.
But when the automatic deleting program starts, sync is gone again.

It is not possible to sync a tablet. I tried the original pro controller.

But still the same.

I believe after one hour, the u shuts down.
But after booting it up again, erasing starts again...
