    I see a LOT of people giving bad advice to others about updating their wiiu console firmware, so I'm going to give you some advice on the subject from my years of experience in the modding scenes.

    rule one:stay on the lowest software/hardware version you can.

    rule two: Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

    rule three: Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

    rule fore: Don't listen to people who tell you its fine to update until there is PROOF! (these are usually people who are upset they updated and/or vary naive and no amount of wishful thinking is going to help.)

    now there WILL be a lot of people under this post that are going to say 'well there is a 5.0+ exploit .wa.wa..wa...wa' what they mean is there are still known bugs in the webkit version on the wiiu, THIS DOSE NOT MEAN EXPLOIT, just bugs that COULD be used for an exploit and so far no one has anything running on 5.0+

    so remember never hold your breath for internet promises. AND Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

    I'm confused. If I follow rule 2 that means I shouldn't believe rule 3. But if I can't believe rule 3 then I can not also believe in rule 2. It's a mind altering paradox you are making.

    why close this thread? I am trying to help people who want to eventually run homebrew on their wiiu. Now I cant tell you the future but I can tell you the past and the past tells us that updating to a firmware that has NO PROOF OF ANY EXPLOIT RUNNING ON IT IS ALWAYS A BAD IDEA. if you dont like the advice don't take it just sit back and wait.... I here fail0verflow has an exploit lol


    edit: @ Bladexdsl don't come in my threads post somthing stupid and then edit it after i make you look like an ass please.

    1st off you have no clue what your talking about the devs who are making the exploit are on this site and have tested and still have the browser exploit running on 5.x. if you'd actually been following them instead of just crawling out of your mums basement and spouting bs you would know this!
    2nd it's true there is no working exploit YET but their working on one it might take months, it might take years but there will be one.
    3rd. even if the exploit does get blocked the wiikey-u will be out soon and that can't be blocked so there will always be a way to play backups in some way.

    when the devs say it's not safe to update than only than will it not be safe. and we'll believe them not some newb. i do have to thank you though i'm going to just sit back and watch now and get a good laugh out of this thread. :P

    Congratulations on repeating the sticky post on the subject. Is there anything you can contribute on the topic of wiiu hacking that won't distribute to paranoia? While we have the occasional bandwagon of "look! someone knows how to hack the wiiu"-outbursts, these barely last a day and are greeted with skepticism. Technically correct answers are usually given pretty soon. I thank you to rely on that in the future, rather than assuming that the shared knowledge on this forum consists solely of ignorant dolts*?




    *that's only like 70% of this forum.

    I agree with rule "fore" if the person saying it is a nobody.

    What about the PSP where almost every single firmware that was released was hacked at some point. Yeah there was a blip towards the end there but once the PSP keys were obtained from the PS3 it was game over really. So the point here is updating the PSP firmware was never the end of the world.

    Rule 8,125 dictates that rule 3,115 can't be true.

    ever here of TA-82... took years and a HUGE ebay deal to get that system hacked.
    the ps3 took over a year before someone figured out how to hack OFW 3.55+ and you know what they did? downgrade to a LOWER FIRMWARE

    edit: (TA-82 = a PSP mobo version)

    edit2: and dont get me started on the 3DS lol
