    Really weird. The update may have been moved to another place. I suggest you to ask for help to the guide's author, since that person knows more than me on that.

    Try this guide before be too late and 5.5.2 be moved away from update folder to another unknow (by me) folder/path: https://gbatemp.net/threads/block-wii-u-system-updates-without-dns-blocking.477944/

    That is good, because you have a chance to remove that update for good, just need to know where it is.

    okay so we can all confirm that users with CBHC on 5.5.1 will lose it if they update to 5.5.2?

    Will not lose it, since only brower exploit was confirmed to be patched.

    Really, only update to 5.5.2 if you are giving up about using hacks in your Wii U, or just stay on 5.5.1, use nnupatcher to access eShop on it, delete update folder (using this method: https://gbatemp.net/threads/block-wii-u-system-updates-without-dns-blocking.477944/) to avoid any risk and, if an update error block your new bough game download (or redownload a game that you bough already), just go to download manager and press the button that allow delete it and continue your download or, if that don't work, just reboot your Wii U (by turning it off and on) and redo the download manager steps i just wrote here.

    I'll only update my Wii U to 5.5.2 when i give up about hacking it, until that comes, i'll keep my Wii U on 5.5.1.

    I modded my wii-u months ago and it works great. I've been contemplating picking up a second Wii-U console and want to know if I would be able to mod it following any specific tutorial or is the 5.5.2 release preventing us from modding any wii-u's until there's a workaround?

    I hope that you didn't spoof it to 5.5.2..if you did, you are doomed and won't be able to update to 'normal' 5.5.2.

    But, my Wii U is still on 5.5.1, since games can access online without the need of Wii U be on the latest update and, if i need eShop access, i can just use nnupatcher. Also, if i need to download a game that i bough or an update for one of them and a failed system update stops it, i just have to reboot my Wii U ( and if the failed system update is still there, i can just delete it before or after the reboot) and the game or game's update download will continue until done. =]

    spoofing doesn't affect being able to update. u can update normally without issue.

    Curious, since i had read before, somewhere in gbatemp, that a guy was having trouble to update from spoofed 5.5.2 (that is 5.5.1 for real) to real 5.5.2 and who replied said that he was dommed and other stuff like that.

    So, if is true or not, can be checked when try to update and see if is possible or not in a spoofed system.

    all spoofing does is replaces the version.bin file which is what the legit update will do. when the system sees titles that r out-of-date, it will try to forcibly update them. not sure what that person's issue was, but he should be able to update if spoofed. I was spoofed to 5.5.1 on 5.3.2, and I had no issues updating. :)
