    I'm helping a friend get CBHC installed on his Wii U. He had the DNS that blocks updates set up and he just bought Brain Age from the eshop. The problem is that the update insists that it gets downloaded first but obviously thats no good. It won't even start the download for Brain Age.

    Is there anything that can be done or are we fricced

    What? We have to remove the tik to install this one?

    No, it's because the ticket is installed upon purchase, so it already exists.

    Remove the title.tik from the downloaded files (on the pc, before you put it on SD), because the latest installed ticket gets placed at the head of the file in the ticket bucket file on the WiiU, and you don't want a fake one there.

    Note that the system's ticket bucket files are not called title.tik, so we can't be talking about the one on the WiiU. Sorry if that was confusing you.

    its very easy to solve this restart your wiiu after you boughtt« the game, when wiiu is starting you will get you game downloaded.

    This does not work for me. I also just tried purchasing Brain Age so I could install HaxChi. After powering/unplugging twice, the FW update is still ahead of the game on the list.

    So does downloading the game via WiiUSB Helper and deleting the tik really work like instructed above? I'm concerned because elsewhere I've read that the game installed for HaxChi must be legit, not from WUP. Or is it not a concern because my legit ticket comes from my purchase? So then does that legit ticket get installed on my WiiU before the game actually downloads?

    Edit- The update download says error and is stuck above the game, which says pending. But still won't download the game.

    "Use NNU patcher to access the eshop. Download the DS game that you need. It will fail because the system update will want to be downloaded first. Just unplug your Wii U. Plug it back in after about 2 minutes and then the DS game that you paid for will start to download the system update will be gone."
    >>>

    by unplug is actualy pull out the power so the wiiu gets a hard reset or hold down the pwer button on wiiu for more than 10 seconds.

    Any idea on which one removes it?

    Or can someone confirm a different solution to get the game downloaded?

    unplug it or press the shutdown button for more than 10 seconds.

    It's actually been there for a while, before this last update. Can you confirm the WUP and ticket strategy posted earlier would work?

    No warning. Just unplugged, waited, plugged back in. And each time in the download queue a failed update download in front of a queued game.

    I hesitate to try in case it bricks. I was waiting to hear someone else confirms it works.

    I found Brain Age on there, which is the one I bought. But it says, do not use any title downloaded from this app to install CBHC or you will brick. That's what's making me nervous even though I'm just trying to install normal Hacxhi.
