    I recently had my wii u updated without me doing anything. The blocker I used wasn't apparently the best. For those that have the best - what is it and is there a tutorial you can attach as well?

    Thanks

    Self host (closed system) or set up tubehax dns.

    If you're doing it right it works.

    Set your network settings on all existing connection to manual DNS (do not automatically DNS) and set the address as 107.211.140.065 for both. This is tubehax DNS, it will keep your system from updating.

    When a game has a software update (smash, splatoon, mario maker etc) you can disable tubehax by reverting the setting to automatic, letting the game update and then launch, then exiting the game and setting the tubehax dns back up. It's annoying, but it will completely keep you from updating the system... and watching youtube.

    Or block the mac id from the internet with your router. That is what I do. I don't get any message about there being an update this way. That is if you have no reason to connect it to the internet. I don't.
