    Just bought a wiiu but there are two accounts from the previous owners i can't delete because they are nnid password protected.
    Now i want to restore factory settings but it forces me to connect to the internet!

    If i set up my WiFi to restore the factory settings will my console get updated?
    I have 5.1.1 atm and want to stay there for homebrew. Or is it safe to update anyway?

    Hope someone can give me answers here.

    Thx!

    It is. 5.5.1 is the latest firmware and has a kernel hack for that version so you can run homebrew and loadiine.

    Don't forget to block updates after resetting.
