Glossary

  • Coldboot = Compatible with Coldboothax, natively or optionally. Can be loaded at console's launch using system.xml.
  • Repatch = Re apply all the patches after a system soft reboot (for example exiting Settings).
  • sysNAND= System NAND, the memory located on the console.
  • red = Redirected (the action of accessing the data on another location).
  • redNAND = Redirected NAND, the NAND copy located on SD card.
  • OTP = One time Programmable chipset, contains console's unique keys.
  • SEEPROM = Chipset which contains specific console's data, like current USB HDD key.
  • SigPatch = Signature check patch, Allows launch and installation of unsigned titles.
  • WUP Server = Allows WUP client connection to manage NAND content.
  • IOSUhax node = API allowing easy file system access, external device FAT32 support, etc.

BRICK WARNING

ATTENTION :

  • If you Autoboot a CFW with system.xml which is NOT COMPATIBLE with Coldboot, you will end in an endless rebooting loop console (reboot loop brick)!
  • Always enable coldboot option before setting the autoboot title in system.xml
  • ALWAYS verify your edited DS VC game is correctly working before installing coldboot (shutdown the console, reboot, launch it manually!).
  • DO NOT install Haxchi or any non-coldboot CFW over CBHC without uninstalling CBHC or restoring the original system.xml first.
  • DO NOT FORMAT YOUR WIIU IF YOU STILL HAVE COLDBOOT INSTALLED.

Notes

[1] : Not sure if WUPServer from Fix94's CBHC/Haxchi is working with the network version of WUPClient, or if it works only with MCP Hook version (offline, command sent by other homebrew, like FTPiiU from Dec 12th 2016).
