    I have 2 Wii U's:
    - 1 at real FW 5.5.0
    - 1 Spoofed FW 5.5.1, real FW 5.3.2

    Should I sell the one that has real FW 5.5.0? I mean, is there a good reason to keep both? Thoughts appreciated :)

    Side Question: Can I still download titles/games from vWii eShop and still block Wii U side updates through the DNS block thing?

    Up to you. Some people don't like keeping their 5.3.2 systems online so having a 2nd system to play disc games online would be nice if you updated it to 5.5.1.

    If you use tubehax, it blocks the update servers and you should still be able to connect to eshop.

    Tubehax doesn't allow access to any eShop or Nintendo CDN services. Ofcourse online play works.

    Can I have the same NNID on both systems? Also, how come I was able to access vWii eShop and also have tubehax DNS active? Am confused...

    I'm not sure about the vWii shop channel. I only know the Wii U eShop isnt available while I use tubehax.

    No.

    Ahh... I was told you could. Never tried it myself though. Apologize if I was mistaken.

    I might just keep 2nd Wii u for now until I try vWii eShop downloads/purchases. How much are point cards?

    Is there a way to purchase Wii points for vWii eShop without having to use credit card?

    There is no way to block update and also access vwii eshop?
