    Hey folks,

    I still got an day one WiiU which is sealed in my basement. I havent been active for a while now. I know there is no IOSU exploit to public so far...

    So there are a few things I need to do:

    - Need to update my WiiU to Version X (Which one is the best)?
    - What game should I buy for it?

    - There are a few TUTs over here I know - which one is the best to follow? ( https://gbatemp.net/threads/release...ss-on-firmwares-5-3-2-5-4-0-and-5-5-1.424679/ )
    OR
    ( https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...server-loadiine-homebrew-launcher-etc.424948/ )


    Thank for your help fellows :)

    Update to latest firmware which is 5.5.1 the latest firmware can play all available homebrew at the moment and the Iosu exploit is being made for 5.5.1 first then lower firmwares after that. As for game recommendations that's hard as we don't know what type of games you like. And this is by far the best guide to use. https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-definitive-guide-to-wii-u-hacking.396828/

    Oh okay, so it is already hacked - the latest FW and I can use all exploits etc. and homebrew then?
    Didnt knew that the last FW was exploited.

    It could be patched at any time so get updating it asap, then learn how to block updates.

    Alright listen it's very important you follow my steps PRECISELY However at the moment I am busy telling someone how to disable a remote mechanism.

    I will post back later what you should do next with your WiiU.

    But whatever you do, DO NOT CUT THE BLUE WIRE.
