    Hey up everybody.

    So trying to keep it as short as possible.

    A Guy sended me a WiiU where he tried to install CFW on his own.
    Well this went wrong cause now we have the following behavior:

    - WIIU Boots up with WiiU Screen
    - Ends up in a Blackscreen but i can press "home" and there a message pops up that
    Brain Training was stopped. There´s either "Continue" wich ends up in Blackscreen again or
    "Finish" wich also gives a Blackscreen.
    - I CAN start Browser but unfortanatly don´t use it as i can´t put my INET Details on the Machine somehow cause there is now way to launch System Settings.

    I and even the Owner does´nt really know what tut he has used nor how he obviously Bricked this Thing.

    I´ve done lots of WiiU´s but never was able to brick one so I´m pretty much knowless here.

    Guess this Device is simply for the Trash but maybe it´s not so i need some Clearification from the Guys who really know the WiiU Business.

    Thanks a lot for your input if you need some more Input just let me know and I´ll provide it straight away.

    Apparently he installed CBHC and the process went wrong ... Ask the guy if he made a copy of the nand.

    That's my thought too but as i never seen a bricked unit i wasnt sure as there still seems to be going on in the background. I thought when it's bricked you get a error message at some point.

    Of cause he doesn't have a Backup

    He couldn't even Provider me the info on system version so... Gone to heaven this console is...

    At least i Tryed.

    Thanks a lot. Very appreciated.

    You can access the internet browser?
    Iirc the Wii U autoconnects to the first free (no password) Wi-Fi connection, so try to create a Wi-Fi hotspot via your phone and it should connect (again, iirc)
