    I'm pretty sure you used another connection with a dns auto cause it is impossible update using dns.

    Download Crunchyroll and wait for an exploit to release, some anime could be good for you.

    I had the version in System Settings change to 5.5.2 when the new update was partially downloaded (I have no clue how this happened), but I could still access homebrew just fine. Can you still run homebrew through the browser?

    So what is the correct dns to use in the future to prevent automatic updates?

    It's 168.235.092.108 and 081.004.127.020.
    You can now access homebrew on 5.5.2 through the WiiU browser again with this website : http://u.drg.li

    DNS1 should be: 168.235.92.108
    DNS2 should be: 81.4.127.20

    There's a new web exploit for 5.5.2 called SleepiiHax. It often takes quite a few tries before it works, but if you want to try it out go to sleepii.ovh on your Wii U and follow the instructions there.
