Hi all

Switched on my WiiU today and when to load the Homebrew Laucher as per norm and I keep get a black sceen shortly after with -5 in the top left.

I'm still on 5.2.2 and I blocked the DNS.

Any ideas?

check your sd card for corruption and change autobooting to sysnand. push home when it says autobooting, then change autoboot to sysnand.

I use a micro SD card in an adapter on my Wiiu and every now and then it spits out -3. Removing the adapter and the card and wiping the contacts and putting it back in the wiiu always solves my issue. One day i'll get a decent adapter. Also if you end up formatting your card, you should try the SD card formatter https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/ . Also I believe there was another tool to properly format a card after it has crashed, but I can't recall the name right now. Maybe someone else will ?
