    Heyo. Getting caught up with life and about to boot up my 3DS and Wii U for the first time in almost a year. I'm working on getting my 3DS ready to go again and am reading up on Wii U stuff while waiting for an install.

    Quick question: I saw in the guides I glanced at that the latest OFW is hackable. Should I go ahead and plug my Wii U in for the first time in a year and get it updated before proceeding, or are there additional benefits that come from an older OFW version?

    Nope, go ahead and update, then reenable your update blocking method

    Probably a question that is totally random but is there a way to unban yourself from a 2 week or permanent ban on Miiverse ?

    Do some RE on the nand file structure. Bound to be one file that could be an nnid thing.


    Brick at your own risk

    I haven't caught up with the scene, is USB loading now possible and stable? Do we also get free DLCs now? Is there a way to dump discs directly to the Wii U USB like multiman?

    Sorry for the noob post.

    Speaking of DLC I'd also like to know if there is a way to permanently get free DLC without having to constantly open the web browser on the Wii U.

    An unban itself is impossible.
    Now a 3DS-esque thing where you change your serial number and make a new one? Well, maybe, but we'd have to use IOSU and find the file NWPlayer was referring to in this old post.
    If anyone can do that, and it doesn't have a signature that needs patching, we'll be good to go there. Until then, I suppose...

    Really? Editing the redNAND's file broke the sysNAND?
    I don't know anything about the new Wii U scene, so I guess that's not happening then.
    In that case, I'll consider going back to working on my PC NNID creator instead. Forget I said anything.

    No it only bricked Rednand. However it is assumed that sysnand would brick too though.

    Really? So after hack the virtual wii We can't update the system?
    I thought the changes in the virtual wii would not suffer interference with the Wii U updates.

    USB loading is stable for all games with a disc release. Free DLC is not possible without some form of sig patching. Wii U discs cannot be dumped into a single file, only "Loadiine format"
    Try running it through the HBL
    If you fudge with the vWii vIOSs it will prevent the Wii U from updating, otherwise you're good

    Do I need redNAND to Instal games from SD card to USB or internal memory?
    Are the loading times better than with KernelExploit doing this? ^

    TIA
