    So I had loadiine and everything working before spoofing and even after spoofing I play loadiine a few times with no problem. I left my wii on standby for a couple of hours and when I came back nothing was working. When trying to load the kernel I only get a white screen.same with loadiine. Ive tried several different avenues like host file on PC and Android. loading websites like wj44, and wiiubrew with no luck. Has anyone found a solution to this? or had the same problems

    I am pretty sure that i didnt, because after i spoofed it I was still playing with loadiine for a couple of days

    I dont think i've ever had that icon.

    It was until i spoofed it, then i didnt think it would be a problem since it thought it was updated.
    Is that where i went wrong?

    After the spoof you must need to set tubehax again because the wii u still wants to update the system even if its spoofed already. And if a new update will come you will be safe too.

    Browser version? And if you have access to eShop with no NNU patcher used i guess you are on the real 5.5.1

    Something similar happened to me. I always ended up with a frozen white screen with the wiiu logo on the bottom right corner. Turns out the latest version of loadiine can only be executed via the homebrew launcher. Copy both apps to your SD (Hombrew Launcher and Loadiine), then visit this site: wiiubru.com

    Thats how I got it to work again.

    PS: You must visit the site twice.

    Like others have said, I would just power off the system completely. Then power back on and try to load up the eshop. If it loads up fine then you are no longer on 5.3.2.

    You MUST still use TubeHax even when spoofed or your Wii U will automatically update. I'm betting that's what happened.

    Big BUMMER dude. Sorry to hear it.

    Left it on standby? Did you disable standby features? And you didn't ensure dns was set up?

    :( damn

    US consoles will have a TVii icon on 5.3.2, that's the easiest way to tell

    This is my question, to grab game updates from Eshop wouldn't Tubehax DNS block us from entering it? Do we have to be quick about it when we grab game updates?

    I'm afraid to spoof, because I don't know how it would end up when I had to go and grab the game updates. These online games are throwing out so many updates too.

    Edit: Don't we install game updates using something like WUPInstaller? I'm thinking of spoofing, but I wanted to know how easy it is to manage not updating.

    If you are spoofing, you are supposed to use WUPinstaller to install game updates.

    you don't get game updates from eShop. They are downloaded when you launch a game and it sees an available update. Yes when spoofed you use wupinstaller to update retail games
