    So I heard that installing unsigned dlc will brick your Wii U. Is this true?

    No it will either not install (without sig patches) or install fine with sig patches

    I recommend not hanging out at random discord servers. Stick to GBAtemp for console modding news since this is where most homebrew developers congregate their plans.

    I'll never understand why people go to YouTube, Reddit, 4chan, etc for haxxx news when it all originates from here (most of the time, if not all the time.)

    I been hearing that from a particular user on Discord as well, claims to have bricked RedNAND 3 times due to a corrupt DLC.
    As xtheman said, you can't brick by game/updates/DLC installations. It will either reject it, or install just fine. This is the main reason why RedNAND is useless for anyone who isn't a dev. Don't believe in such nonsense, these newcomers who think they know what they're talking about. It pisses me off because it comes from mods who run the place, and it's their say in everything when it comes to what's right or wrong, and what's mandatory. When they haven't even been following the scene for at least over a year.

    RedNAND tends to brick itself though from what I heard...
