    If you are afraid your DNS settings will be ignored in standby and you will get a nasty secret update fear no more! Using the newly discovered bug in REDNAND /wup cfw you can still use quick start while guaranteeing no connections to any nasty update servers while on standby. The infamous blinking lights glitch can be used to freeze standby mode and prevent it from making any updates or any connections to anything as when it is frozen it effectively off but if you leave your wii u plugged out longer than 24 hours then standby mode will auto disable itself and so will quick start be disabled. With proper DNS settings and using this bug to freeze standby mode you won't have to worry about your wii u updating and still can use quick start without any problems

    Old post below for details on my findings

    You have to plug in and out to start the wii u again because the sleep mode freeze glitch freezes your whole wii u rendering it dead until you plug in and out

    I'm not sure what you mean? You read what I was talking about yes? If you do not have RedNand or wup cfw this is no use to you

    It's an issue that we can take advantage of, if it weren't there sleep mode would work correctly and so would secret updates the whole point of this is you have quickstart without secret updates

    Regardless of the OP's title choice, I have been saying that using quickstart is the best method to begin with. It's literally a 2 second wait from pressing the power button, then the game itself. Then multiboot haxchi lets you pick what you want to do from the jump. I have no qualms with having to get up and physically touch my console (i've been doing that since the snes), and if this glitch really does prevent the wii u from booting in standby to do an update, then i see that it cancels each other out.

    Quick start is the best coldboot.

    What is this drivel about "secret updates"? It's well known that a very smart move is setting up custom DNS as soon as possible...

    This also lets you play games online and still avoid getting updates even better than a custom DNS

    Never got the yellow/blue blinking light glitch when powering off? You sure you have standby mode enabled and quick start?

    I did get the blinking light glitch but if it happens that just requires holding the power button. And a trick I found was if you close the Wii.U with the console itself and not from the gamepad that will not happen :P

    Yea but when it THOSE happen it means standby mode is frozen preventing any and all updates which is a GOOD thing. I know there are ways to get around it that's not my point I just found a very good use for it
