I obviously don't wanna update I'm currently on 5.5.1 wanted to legit buy something
Simple search of the many many threads on here about the update would have told you to use NNU patcher
Simple use a PC or android device ect to download nnu patcher put it on the sd card and insert it into wiiu. Switch wiiu on and load homebrew launcher then select nnu patcher the wiiu will reset to home screen then select eshop and pick what you want to download and it will start to download its that simple.
Make sure your update isn't sticking
hard shutdown while the wiiu is on lietraly hol the power button with the wiiu ON for 10 seconds then restart the wiiu and you should have your download started.
thanks worked like a charm(thought it would damage my system)I was also wondering is there a way to delete "the update"
Yes. Check the home brew store. There’s an app for deleting updates. I just used it last week.
noted I'll give it a try
Can I create a new Nintendo Network ID on 5.5.1 without risking an unwanted FW update? I don't have an account and can't play Wii Sports Club.
Yes, you should be able to.
You can create a Nintendo Network ID without updating. I did it on a fresh Wii U post 5.5.2 rollout. Ignore all prompts that demand that you update. If it won't let you create the Nintendo Network ID, use the NNU Patcher tool from the Homebrew Store.
Thanks so much!
No prob! happy gaming
Spoke too soon! Now it keeps nagging that update is ready to install with only "OK" as an option Hard Powering down so far works. Can I delete the downloaded update to keep it from nagging to install it?
Follow these steps:
Add the following DNS settings to block future updates
Use this in the internet browser to delete the downloaded update on your Wii U: https://madridi7.github.io/WiiU/
Use this guide to block updates by deleting a folder on your NAND: https://gbatemp.net/threads/block-wii-u-system-updates-without-dns-blocking.477944/
This works with the altered DNS settings?
Yes of course. That's the whole point.
Hi I tried creating a new I'D via NNU patcher, but keep getting error 102-2613. Tells me to check details are correct and try again. Have checked a number of times still no luck. Any ideas please.
Is this on a new Wii U? One you're just setting up? Do you have much data on it? I'd recommend doing a reformat (deleting all settings and content), keep it offline and do not provide any internet info until you're through the initial setup process. After that, setup up your internet connection with DNS to block Nintendo updates. Finally, create your NNID. Try a different email or ID from the one you were trying before. That should work. I know it sounds drastic, but these systems are limited to one profile per Wii U and weird things happen to it.
Is it OK to enter the NNID confirmation code? I'm parinoid to do anything after they downloaded he update even tho automatic updates was off!
Yes, it is safe to input the NNID confirmation code.
The Wii U updates are designed to download and install automatically regardless of your settings. The Automatic Updates setting you're referring to has nothing to do with system updates. So, don't act indignant, because the only problem that happened was you didn't know what you were doing. Did you at least follow the directions I posted to make sure you don't accidentally update to 5.5.2 in the future?
