    It's been since corrected, one has to use the non whitelisted version on the Wii U brew shop, as since been stated and reportedly works fine with that version. CBHC, not too keen on installing to be honest.

    Edit: typos

    I see, thank you.

    I also don't want to install CBHC.
    I'll go with Haxchi as safe guard in case I update inadvertently, but I always use proxy on PC + dns + myself (best protection). I should be fine but you never know...

    I unplugged my Wii U just after father's day so I'm guessing I don't have the new update yet. I did mine with haxchi

    Even this guide is outdated or something like that: https://github.com/FlimFlam69/WiiUTutorial/wiki ?

    As i can see there, it shows to block Wii U updates and other stuff like that.

    Did you try to reboot your Wii U and access the Homebrew Launcher?

    If you can access that, you can use Ftpii u everywhere and delete update folder following this guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/block-wii-u-system-updates-without-dns-blocking.477944/

    i looked up the updating wii u stuff , and found out that it seems like it is okay to update if you have haxchi/cbhc installed.

    and i happen to have both installed, so i guess i can just go on ahead and update my wii u without losing anything.

    That is up to you, but, until i totally give up on hacking, i'll keep my Wii U on 5.5.1.

    If you are sure, go on then, but, if you wanna remove all hacks from your Wii U on 5.5.2, like CBHC and others, you won't be able to reinstall them until another browser exploit is avaliable for public can download and use/install.

    i think i will just reboot my wii u now then.
    better safe than sorry.

    i just hope i wont have the system update pop up on me all the time, to remove it is risky from the guide you've sent me.
    so i will not touch it.

    edit: rebooted my wii u , and now whenever i try to launch anything it shows a "A system update is required before the software update can be downloaded"
    that shows up for every title.

    If you follow the guide i showed you, following each step without skipping anything, you'll be safe, since that is an up-to-date one that i already did on my Wii U and it is all fine.

    Just make a backup of the entire update folder to your PC before deleting it: for that, just drag the update folder to you desktop, doing that inside of your FTP program, like FileZilla.

    The update will be gone for good and Wii U will try to update again, but it will fail all the times, giving the 105-3012 error.

    And, as i said, make backup of your update folder, so, if the pop-up still occur even deleting the update folder previously, well, you won't have other option than update, but, try to remove it before giving up.

    i'll follow the guide now, seems pretty easy to do.
    will backup the update folder/and see how it goes.

    but the guide does only tell how to block the updates, since the update has been downloaded already for me , should i back it up then delete it ?
    and if i delete it, do i delete the 'update' folder or do i delete whats inside of it.

    I used FlimFlam's guide up to and including step 5. CBHC. Redid my connection when I got a new router but didn't block anything. Still on FW 99.99.99U
