    Hi!

    Is there any way to reset Wii U parental password without contacting Nintendo ?

    I know that for Wii we can use :
    http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.wsgi

    Or this software :
    http://www.homebrew-connection.org/...e-the-parental-restricition-on-wii3ds-easily/

    I tried it for Wii U and it doesn't work (note : I also checked that the Wii U date was correct).

    I found that we can sometimes contact Nintendo by chat here :

    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/sy...parental_controls_faq&submenu=wup-pc-ht-reset

    But I always get : "Nintendo's live Chat is currently unavailable."

    Did anyone decrypt Wii U Parental password resetting tool?

    Why would you need this? Can't you just call Nintendo once, then write the password down somewhere safe the next time? It's not like it's needed on a daily basis, although I will admit it would be nice to have at least.
    Also, just link your email and you will get the option to mail yourself the key according the the Nintendo site.

    I would need this because sometimes I'm softmoding Wii & Wii U for people who forget that they installed some parental control when they first set up Wii U.
    And sometimes they've bought their console from secondhand market with parental control installed (it happened to some of my friends in the past with some good old Wii).

    I had the issue today and no email was added. Finally the person gave me several passwords to try and I finally unlocked it without contacting Nintendo.

    But before I found the original password I tried Marcansoft Tool just in case and it's not working with Wii U.

    You're right it's not needed on a daily basis but it's just faster than contacting Nintendo and as there is some tool for Wii I was just wondering if anyone has found Wii U solution.

    If we are talking about the 4 digit one:
    Do it like me:

    Guess it.

    The Wii U won't punish for too many false entries.

    I believe somebody did do something and they're called "your parents". Go YELL at them.
    btw, don't you need to be 13 and over to register on forums like these?

    You could try InspectMii. I'm not sure if the parental password carries over to the vWii side, so it may not work.

    And I remembered correctly: Marcan wrote a tool to do just that. Works for Wii - I'm not sure about WiiU. Link: here

    EDIT: Should've read the OP. Lol

    Well it sucks, but 10000 isn't nearly as bad as many other password protections

    In order to use inspectmii, the console needs to be softmodded....

    1. This is from like 6 months ago.
    2. He asked for a tool. I probably just read the first post and assumed he had a softmodded Wii U.

    Lol, sorry.
    I am facing the same problem. just for the weekend...sigh....
    I think he was asking for a tool like marcan's Wii parental control reset tool , wich was an online script.

    In any case if someone is wondering, you still need parental acces in order to start smash bros brawl.

    You mean to hack Wii mode? Can't you use a game with a lower rating instead, like the Lego ones? Granted, it depends on how low the parental controls are set, I suppose.

    If its 4 digits and only numbers that is only 1,000 possible combinations. Could do that in a day or two easily.
