    THIS EFFECTS EUR REGION WiiU'S ONLY

    I found out last night my WiiU background downloaded the latest update.
    Upon booting my WiiU the Homebrew launcher and WUP Installer wouldn't launch, neither would my CFW installed games.
    Thankfully this is a very easy fix

    • Step 1: Power on your WiiU
    • Step 2: Goto your Virtual Console DS game with the title "DO NOT TOUCH"
    • Step 3: Launch it, it should now reboot your WiiU into CFW
    • Step 4: Launch Homebrew Launcher
    • Step 5: Launch the CBHC Installer
    • Step 6: Uninstall your previous Coldboot Haxchi
    • Step 7: Reboot WiiU and repeat steps 2-5
    • Step 8: Choose "Install Coldboot Haxchi"
    • Step 9: When it has finished reinstalling your Coldboot Haxchi reboot your WiiU
    • Step 10: If it was successful you should now be at the CBHC menu, go down to autoboot and change to "System Menu"

    That's it, you're done.

    Nice.
    I may need this soon as I’m thinking of dusting off my WiiU this week
    and getting it updated.

    Thanks, this is for everybody who is sceptical and wants to be sure because they installed CHBC years ago and have no idea anymore what to do without risking a brick^^.

    Is this eur only for real?
    I always thought updates fixed the boot sequence (as in they always apply "home menu is what has to boot on startup")

    I'll fix that now. this is what happens when I temp without sleep.



    Yeah only the Eur region WiiU consoles due to the new laws that passed. The update overrides one of the cbhc files

    You dont have to uninstall and then reinstall. You can select to install again without uninstalling.

    I figured it would be safer to uninstall/reinstall than risk breaking something

    The title mentions EUR only, so I assume that if I update my CBHC WiiU (US console) it won't be affected? I thought it required the same fix.

    Everything I've read and seen, it's only affected EUR region consoles because of the new data laws that got passed

    I see.
    I might just update my console then.
    At worst I just need to run the installer again.

    I thought of it the other way. The more something is manipulated the more chances something has to go wrong/corrupt. However in this case I don't think it really matters which way its done. People should just go with whatever they feel safest with.

    I can understand that but when you're console modding on after not sleeping for several hours, I didn't want to take chances.

    Yea should be fine :)

    Thanks, I should've seen this soner. Instead of entering the Do not touch folder I just lauched the homebrew browser exploit instead and reinstalled CBHC.

    Sweet - worked a treat - thanks OP.
    It was good after such a long time to have a nice easy to follow tut considering CBHC is 'dangerous' and I've not touched any hackery settings on my WiiU in an age.
    Cheers bud.

    Don't get me wrong when I first saw it I went into panic mode and started looking for how to fix. I'm just glad it was as simple as reinstalling

    When [the only?] launcher app is (re)installed, it gets indeed set as default app
    (the DS game being manually set as default app doesn't make it considered a launcher, as you can see in SystemConfigTool)

    Just that Wii U Menu was only updated in Europe (despite also containing a change in a tutorial picture intended for the American region, heh)
