    Hey Guys,

    I'm trying to get a Wii U for my wife for Xmas and I wanted your advice on what the best setup is for what I'm trying to achieve.

    1. I'd like to be able to play Wii backups
    2. I'd like to be able to play Super Mario Maker (online)
    3. I'd like to be able to play Wii U backups

    If I buy a 5.3.2 Wii U, is it possible to do all 3? Is it possible to spoof the firmware to play Super Mario Maker online if I bought a copy or would I need a Wii U to do #1 and #3 and a separate Wii U to do #2?

    1 can be done with both 2 and 3.

    yes a 5.3.2 wiiu can do all that at the same time if you spoof it to 5.5.0. but you need nintendo update servers blocked at all times.

    Dunno, but personally it is nice to have two. Then again I am clinically crazy plus I happened to get two for entirely different reasons and then 5.3.2 exploit just kinda fell behind my window like a beautiful spring... Cocaine fall I dunno.

    People say I am bad at figure of speech.
