    This is probably a really noob question but I just got my Wii U. On the settings there's an option to block updates when the console is off, so... isn't that enough to be safe from future updates?

    Nope that's not enough. It will still download and install updates unless you block it another way

    So... everytime I want to play online or get into the eshop will I have to set the DNS to automatic and then to manual again?

    You can just not, since i'm pretty sure Nintendo won't release a new update since the Wii U's dead.

    i won't count on it. sony released new update for the psp years after the last update when sony already ended it's production. nintendo can do the same. you can't know for sure.

    It's hard to say for sure when firmware support for a system ends. If Nintendo really wanted to couldn't they update the Wii despite the system being well over a decade old now?

    I'd say a year from now is a safe bet for the Wii U to be done with updates but even that's not a guarantee.

    the console will download the update, but won't update itself if you disable standby functions in the settings menu.
    if it prompts you to update, just shut it down and turn it back on and the nag will go away.

    Tubehax has not worked for about 4 months you need to update your dns blockers use 168.235.092.108 and 081.004.127.020 and you will be able to play online again

    The WiiU is probably done with updating.

    I really doubt the Wii U has any more updates coming, I mean if it didn't receive one for Zelda, I can't imagine anything else would warrant an update. The only kind of update I can imagine is when they start killing features they may issue an update to remove them from your home screen/menu.
