    Good thing I intend to do that, then. How much is Brain Age, anyway?

    one problem though - u need to access the homebrew launcher to install haxchi in any form. that requires the browser exploit. that's been patched with 5.5.2. I believe it will force u to update in order to access the eshop.

    So wait, can I even hack my Wii U at all then? I know the options are Haxchi and BrowserHax, right?

    u need browserhax to install haxchi or to get into the homebrew launcher. I don't think there's anything u can do unfortunately.

    So that whole other conversation was pointless then? In the other thread?

    Any WiiU that's been sitting unplugged since before last night still has 5.5.1 on it. You'd be able to run the browser hack on those until they get updated - either intentionally or accidentally.

    No, you'd specify the blocked DNS entries, run the web exploit, spoof (if necessary) and run NNUPatcher, then go to eShop and buy the title, download the title with an NUS downloader on the PC, remove that download's fake title.tik (if there is one) and install it using WUPInstaller. (All still possible because you never updated)

    NNUPatcher is what gets you by the update check.

    It sounds complicated because you haven't used any of the tools, and now you need them all at once. You can thank Nintendo for that. The take-away here would be that any console that's been sitting around can still be exploited. Find a console, make sure it's on 5.5.1, then ask us for the specific instructions you need at that time. Things are going to change over the next few days as we learn more about what still works and what doesn't, but the steps above are what you'd have to do if you had a console in front of you tonight and were trying to get it going.

    Alright. I'll post a thread when I have the console, then. Thanks.
