WiiU : Will i be able to hack it, and still play games online?
...
Are you positive?
...
What precautions should I take?

I guess there is a firmware update I should be aware of in general for the hack itself to prevail.

But besides that, are there any wiiU online included apps I should stay away from (being online...)?

What program should i use for transferring games to a usb drive? (unless wiiu does not read games from a usb drive? O.o)

Also, how can i block WiiU from updating without DNS?

This should solve most of your questions

However, try to refrain from buying a used wii u as it may be 'bricked' where someone may have failed to install hacks and nearly unusable.
-Try to get the seller of the wii u (if its irl) to show you it works
There was a new firmware update (5.5.2) where one of the exploits got patched.
There is a new one but it's success rate is random.
You can also use Wii U Usb Helper (search on google)

You should watch a youtube tutorial, there are a ton of noob friendly ones.

That is a blast!

I am a bit concerned about the DNS change...

Will deleting the "update" folder be enough for blocking the wiiu update?

or is there any other way?

You've made me a happy boy!

one more thing :0

I see the wii u usb helper program is working in one way.

I wonder, let's assume i have a game .iso, since the wii u usb helper doesn't offer this method,

how can i create a usb to contain all of my games which the wii u can read? (like homebrew)

I read from someone here that the game you purchase to get homebrew installed will forever be unable to be installed after haxchi. Like if you want to play Mario Kart DS do not use that as your point of entry. Brain age is most common.
