    In most of the guides there's still the Tubehax IP which is outdated?
    Wasn't there two IPs (one in NA and one in Netherlands) which are the most recommended now?
    If yes which were they?

    You really shouldn't use Update Blocking anymore since Nintendo Doesn't care about the Wii U anymore

    But if you really are so concerened then you could use DNS.

    Your mamas house
    Could you elaborate on why it "shouldn`t" be used anymore? OR are you saying that you feel (your opinion) its not needed anymore (because there hasn`t been an update in a long time?)

    I'm saying it's safe to use no DNS, Nintendo isnt going to update the Wii U anymore, they only care about their Trash Produtcts, (eh.. switch).

    If you go to loadiine.ovh they keep an updated working list of DNS on the home page. Changes all the time

    You should always be blocking Nintendo Updates via DNS if you are running CFW. Yeah the WiiU is old, and nintendo "probably" won't release another firmware update for it, but that is just a best "guess". The truth is, no one knows if they will release an update besides Nintendo themselves. So its better to be safe then sorry. And if your running CBHC/Haxchi/Mocha or any CFW, and your console updates to a new unhackable firmware, then the update "could" brick your console.

    At least I am pretty sure it could brick your console anyway, but I could be wrong. That may be if you have CBHC installed. I don't know. I rather be safe then sorry, and not chance a brick.
