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.
