    With the new USB loading hack going on, I see that the Wii U scene is coming back to life.

    Since I haven't followed things very closely, I'm jumping in and while I'm having no issues, I just had a few questions.

    1) I installed a game to my USB drive with no issues. It works perfectly. But, how are game updates handled? The game was Mario Kart 8 and I bought the DLC a long time ago and when I installed MK8 to my USB drive, I think the DLC was recognized and usable. When the game loaded, it had version 4.1 I believe in the bottom corner. I'm guessing that when using NUSGrabber, it automatically grabbed any updates for the game since the DLC was playable. So far, so good?

    2) If nusgrabber.exe isn't grabbing updates, is there a homebrew app that can scan your USB drive and grab whatever updates you need? Going forward, lets say MK8 introduces new DLC. How do I get it? Turn off TubeHAX and pop on eShop, buy it, then turn TubeHAX back on? Same question for game updates. Lets say MK8 v5 hits. If I'm using TubeHAX, how are game updates downloaded?

    3) Since the latest 5.5.1 firmware is exploitable, do we even need TubeHAX? I know, I know, Nintendo could release firmware v6 tomorrow that kills all this but beyond that, (which is a major concern), any other reason to keep TubeHAX set up?

    If you want to do it the easy way
    1. Yes you can disable tubehax and update and buy the DLC you want but use tubehax again if you're done updating since maybe tomorow Nintendo updates the Wii U and then you're fucked.

    or just use nnu patcher to enable access to the Eshop and update your games that way, just remember to reboot when you're done.

    It is still better to mention NNU - patcher and not turning off tubehax.

    nnu - patcher is easier. You boot homebrew and the app. for tubehax you have to turn it off then retype it which takes forever

    Download that and boot from homebrew launcher. Works on all firmwares. If your wii u has the X on the downloads (failed system update) thing it won't work until it is gone. I'm not sure how to get rid of it but it comes and goes.

    I see. But how can you update the game that way?

    Btw there's a home brew to get rid of that X . I can't remember the name thought



    Edit: I kept my console on firmware 1.something for ages. This gal never saw eshop before :D
    Is it possible that you update from eshop ?
