    There is a homebrew or kernel app that can block wii u update forever ?
    If not..there is a chance to get that?

    I couldn't tell you if there's a way to block it internally or if there will ever be a way. I do know you could easily block the URLs used by the Wii U using your router, though. At least on most routers you should be able to.

    Ah. I think somewhere on the forums someone mentioned using a DNS to essentially block the URLs.

    just use the tubehax dns that also blocks the update URL's and your ip shouldn't matter

    I do believe there's a PC based client that can be used to automatically update your IP for OpenDNS and a few other services.

    I can't say I've had the balls to actually remove all other blocking systems I have in place and solely try this, but supposedly on your Wii U, you only need to set your DNS to the TubeHax DNS to block Nintendo's servers (can keep your IP Address on Auto-Obtain for dynamic IP)

    DNS: Don't auto-obtain
    Primary DNS: 107.211.140.065
    Secondary DNS: 107.211.140.065

    only your router is passworded ?
    If you can access WiiU settings, why not use proxy solution ?

    instead of using OpenDNS to do the filtering, your computer is doing it !
    I prefer using that solution over online service, that way I can enable/disable/edit rules quickly and even while playing. for example, block system update, but allow game update.
    you can even see the accessed URL in realtime and determine if you should block or allow internet access.

    The proxy solution is not 100% safe either, as few things are bypassing it completely (Netflix streaming for example, or homebrew on vWii, but that's a benefit!)

    First rule : be sure that you disable the standby/quick boot and auto-download options. that way, you can see what's happening when you are using your console.
    if you enable shutdown update, you still risk to update it.

    Then follow CCProxy guide in the WiiU FAQ. it's a free application (it works even if you setup more than 3 free accounts).

    Is there a way to kick off the WiiU from my network automatically after 3-5mins? I just need connected to load wiiubru, and want it to disconnect after that.
    I don't trust blocking these URL's since Nintendo could always change them at some point, and BAM your WiiU is updated.

    The best way to do it is to self host the files on your internal network then block the Wii U MAC from the internet from within your router.
    Nintendo could change them, BUT there is no way for the Wii U to know that they were changed without an update of the software so it knows to look at the new hostname.

    I would love to do that, what would be the best way to host the files? Would I need to buy any extra hardware?

    I believe there's a pretty extreme way to stop updates, by deleting vWii ios's?

    Self host and set up tubehax . It doesn't matter if your IP is dynamic. It's just a manual dns setup. If you self host then you won't have to go online to run the exploit. It's easy to set up using xampp

    But if in the future you want to update/downgrade whatever maybe (Probably) you won't be able to do it.

    I personally just block with my router the Nintendo Update Servers, it never fails and you can still play online, and I also use TubeHax DNS, just in case.
