    It updated even though I am using the Tubehax DNS address posted here to block all access to Nintendo's servers. Can't access e-shop and it displayed the x over the little icon at the bottom. I've seen users in the past post about this. With the kexplot that was just released, I would hate for it to update when Nintendo releases another update. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Block the addresses with the router's blacklist, don't rely on TubeHax or any other DNS services since they may be down sometimes.

    Each router SHOULD have settings.
    Simply type something like 192.168.0.1 or something similar (try 0.1, 1.1, etc) in your browser as if you were typing a link.
    You'll end up entering the home page for the router.

    How do you know that you have been updated? Were you spoofed before?

    Can't block URL's on my AT&T router, there's no such thing. It's not always an option, which Im glad that I got a wifi SD to stay offline. I'm always afraid of spoofing just to play games online.

    Lucky for you the 5.5.1 kernel exploit was leaked yesterday. Block updates in your router and enjoy using your kernel hacks again.

    Just because the little X is showing doesn't mean that it actually updated. It means that it tried to download an update but failed. Do you still have the TVii icon? If you did update fully, you'd have eShop access, but since you don't, it's probably not updated.

    This would be one of the first times that I've heard of TubeHax not blocking an update. Are you sure that you followed all the instructions correctly? You're not supposed to fill in both DNS addresses. Just the first.

    Turn off autoupdate and all those other settings too.

    Also, can you confirm that you have actually updated? Can you access the eshop on a cold boot without error?

    The routers usually have dumb as fuck login users and passwords.
    Simply look at what kind of router you have, and look in the internet for the info for it.
    it's usually something like user-password or admin-password, etc.

    If you leave the second address blank then the wii u will fail to access anything online in the event that tubehax goes down. It's a precautionary measure.

    nope, it's a numeric one with random nubers in it and changes for every router. (FRITZ!BOX)

    He's correct its usually something like admin-password. In my case it was admin-telus.
