    No but maybe in the future when 5.5.1 support surpasses the one of older firmwares.

    Dev's generally say to stay at 5.3.2, which you can get upgraded to via certain on disc updates (Mario Party 10 comes to mind) unless you're at 5.5.0, then just go ahead up to 5.5.1.

    I don't really know the stance on sub 5.3.2 though to be honest.

    So is the kernel exploit + loadiine loading more successful on 5.5.1 compared to the same on 5.3.2?

    Between the exploit and then launching loadiine, I never get 100% success rate on 5.3.2 getting to the point of choosing a game.

    Wondering if it is higher with 5.5.1.

    5.4.0/5.5.x Userland Exploit > 5.3.2 Userland Exploit...
    5.5.x Kernel Exploit >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 5.3.2/5.4.0 Kernel Exploit !!

    I would definitely update to 5.5.1 rather than 5.3.2. ;)

    But i'm on 5.3.0... Can I SSH the Wii U through a 486 compatible system running Arch Linux and supply the package files needed to upgrade to 5.3.2?

    You have to upgrade with a disc. Get to 5.3.2 not 5.5.1. The more exploits available the better.

    5.5.1 kernel exploit is actually works with 5.4.0 and 5.3.2 ;)

    The only reason that makes me update from 5.4.0 to 5.5.1 is to get rid of spoofing in case if emuNAND is released someday

    It does, but it needs porting.
    Why even bother when you can just update? ;)

    Why bother updating when NWPlayer123 released a perfectly working build of the 5.5.x exploit for 5.3.2? With spoofing, 5.3.2 can do the exact same things 5.5 can, including having a more or less perfect boot rate with this new exploit. It's not like the 3DS, where being on 4.x is actually a disadvantage compared to 9.2.

    If the 5.5.1 exploit is better than the 5.3.2 one, should I save my 60$ and 2 months and just update? Reigon locking is annoying.
