Coldboot solution for your Wii U!
It’s dangerous, but it’s very useful!
READ EVERYTHING DOWN BELOW BEFORE DOING ANYTHING:
This is a list of users that have Bricked their consoles , most of these bricks come from failing to follow the simple instructions set out by FIX94 , check the list and reasons for their bricks : BRICKED USERS.
CBHC has guaranteed brick risk if you fail to follow simple steps. Please, read everything here.
- Before Installing CBHC, verify that your Haxchi installation works 100% [In other words, check if it freezes while launching HBL or launches apps/boots you into it’s CFW without crashes]
- Disable Standby & Quick Menu
- Unplug every USB storage device from your Wii U [No excuses]
Never do anything listed in here unless you want your Wii U to become a brick. [No, seriously it will be useless, it will not boot anymore]
- Don’t try to delete or move CBHC’d DS VC GAME!
- Don’t reinstall DS VC GAME from WUP INSTALLER!
- Do NOT do a SYSTEM FORMAT while CBHC is INSTALLED, IF CBHC GAME IS DELETED, YOUR Wii U is DEAD!
- Do not delete user profile used to purchase/download Brain Age DS VC as it will make your console unbootable
Only install this if you’re really tired from booting Haxchi CFW and would like to risk it so you can have signature patches removed and region-free on boot.
Understood? Let’s proceed!
Did you test your Haxchi’d game 50 times to see if it works fine? Then let’s go!
- Eject SDCard from your Wii U and insert it back to your PC
- Visit this page and download “CBHC”
- Insert CBHC folder in SDCard://CBHC [.tga and title.txt files, it will make your CBHC’d game “DO NOT TOUCH ME”]
- Insert CBHC Installer folder with .elf in SDCard://wiiu/apps/cbhc
- Eject SDCard out of your PC and insert it back to your Wii U
- Load Homebrew Launcher from Haxchi
- Load “CBHC Installer”
- Select your compatible DS VC game [IT MUST BE A LEGIT GAME BOUGHT & DOWNLOADED FROM ESHOP, IF IT’S NOT, YOU’LL BRICK!]
- Read warning on screen and Press A or B if you decided not to install it
- It will inject coldboot code into syshax.xml and sysmenu.xml
- It will kick you back into Wii U Menu
- Power off your Wii U and on again
Now follow next instructions:
If your Wii U remains blackscreen for a long time [2 Minutes] then don’t panic! Just press Home button. If it shows “-3” or “-5”, press Home button
- You should now see 6 options. vWii, sysmenu, HBL, Mocha CFW, CFW Booter and Autobooter
- Scroll down using D-PAD Up & Down and use D-PAD Left& Right to select “Autoboot: sysmenu”
- Now scroll up and select sysmenu option
- You will now see “Autobooting…” message
- You got kicked into Wii U Menu. Guess what? It’s CBHC CFW! You’re in CFW now, congratulations!
- Power off your Wii U and power it on again.
- If you see “Autobooting…” message again then it means CBHC works correctly
- Put CBHC DS VC Game into the last page in Wii U Menu. This will ensure that you will not press it by mistake and not get stuck into boot-loop.
If you ever feel like changing Autoboot options, press Home button on your Gamepad while it displays the “Autobooting…” message
Congratulations! You installed ColdBootHaxChi! Now you will probably want to install Homebrew Launcheras a Channel right?
Now, you probably want to have offline Homebrew Launcher. No, don’t overwrite CBHC installation with Haxchi, i have better method for you.
You don’t want to use browserhax do you? After all these nice times with Haxchi… Don’t worry, it’s your last time actually using it.
