    Hey guys just a quick question

    I came home from work today and turned on my wiiu which was disconnected from the mains like usual. I checked the download update icon had a red x through it which it did and proceeded to load loadine to play Yoshi wooly world.

    After many attempts at running the exploit I failed (always used to work) I couldn't figure what was wrong so just quickly went back to the home menu and there is no tvii icon anymore.

    I run tubehax dns and open dns as the secondary as well as unplugging the console after every use just to be safe.

    By not having the tvii icon anymore on my homescreen does this mean its updated to 5.5.0 somehow?? I have kids btw but I highly doubt they would be able to turn off the dns addresses etc.

    I checked through the system logs and update notifications and didn't see any logs of the update being installed. I do have notifications saying an update is available but that's it.

    Can miitv be removed without a system update? that would eliminate the console being updated to 5.5.0 and is there any other way of seeing if im still on 5.3.2 spoofed ?

    many thanks guys.

    P.s if anyone requires any pics or anything I can provide them.

    if tvii is gone, its updated. There is no special "tvii is gone but still on 5.3.2" that I know of. .

    quick everyone panic ninty doing stealth updates while powered down :P

    no but just to rule it out, double check your DNS settings, check tubehax is still setup....personally i think having the openDNS as the backup is risky, especially as a backup as your less inclined to make sure the openDNS stays updated

    also did you have standby mode disabled? would it be theoretically possible someone just plugged the wiiu in and left it in standby mode for a while, and tubehax DNS connection failed and it fell back to openDNS which if your on a dynamic IP can leave you open to updates unless your rigorous in making sure the PC app is always running to keep it updated

    oh and one more way to make sure its truely updated to 5.5.0 is to connect to the eshop, if it connects its definitely updated and you not just looking in the wrong place for the TVii icon :P

    you shoudlnt have opendns as secondary, both dns should be just tubehax, if tvi icon is gone you are on real 5.5.0 maybe a game updae from disc?

    Ok but I cannot connect to the eshop which suggests I'm on 5.3.2 as I've turned off all blocked servers now just to test

    Do you think it's worth doing a system format to see if the tvii comes back on ?

    the fact that it installed an update for smash via the system means its on 5.5.0. You need to use wup installer for game updates while using a spoofed console.

    well if you have opendns im betting its blocking the e shop server but yeah if a game update installed then your not on 5.3.2 since you need wup installer for game updates.

    like someone said probably due to your secondary dns being opendns, the moment tubehax dns went down tehe wiiu switched to opendsn and since opedns fails if you hae a dynamic ip it just updated your console, you should have never had that on secondary at all.

    It was unplugged mate but the kids do go on it the fact that I've just seen a Lego game in the console suggests that's what probably happened. Anyway hey ho you live and learn lol

    Honestly, if you're an adult trying to use this stuff for yourself at the moment,you might be able to find a cheap one, $50-$140 (usually has other stuff without gamepad for higher priced ones...), without a gamepad for yourself to tinker with. I don't think they run too much without a gamepad (imo anyway), and you can just sync the one you have.

    If/When you get a new console, stay far away from OpenDNS. Using OpenDNS is sitting on an update timebomb. There's been a few people on this forum who have been updated by relying on it. :(

    Posting this not just to you but for anyone who comes across this thread.

    No problem. Just thought it might be an option for yourself. If not, can always wait, right? :P Hope you have a good one!
