    I have a wii u that is on 4.2.0 u
    I never used it, but my brother played with it long time ago. Should I update it or something?

    I would like to know if it's possible to JB/hack it just like with the 3DS and PS3 in order to play roms from an sd card. If so, how can I do that?
    I see many threads and I don't know which to fallow.

    Block updates and stay where you are.
    If you aren't using it anyway you can wait a month or two and see what the future brings.

    There is a difference between intended release date and promised release date...just want to make that clear, since most people on this forum don't seem to be able to tell the difference.

    People, he said that the liked the idea of releasing it on Christmas as a surprise, but something as big as an IOSU Exploit need a lot of work, don't get upset or mad with anyone if it doesn't get published on Holidays or something like that. Just be patient and don't get way too hyped for your own good.

    I already can see the comments if this gets delayed "You said that we would have it on Christmas!!!!11" "OMG What a troll he probably doesn't even have anything lol" "This is a scam" "Go to hell please" "Will you ask for Money?!"

    Never, it's 23rd of December, will you update right now?
    If I were you, I wouldn't wait this much just for update to 5.5.0 right now, it's so close, maybe on Holidays or maybe not, but the new Exploit it's really close anyway.
    Lower FW is always better, remember that, you can only go Forward at least for now, never backwards, just like a shark.

    I just haven't heard any news on any exploit for 5.4.0.

    ...
    What?
    "- The exploit being used works from 2.0.0 up to 5.5.0, but it obviously needs to be ported for each firmware;"

    The IOSU Exploit made by Hykem will be going to be compatible with Firmwares from 2.0.0 to 5.5.0, that obviously includes 5.4.0.

    That's the point. How long will it take to port each firmware version?

    I sense an inconsistency.
    The length of time is up to Hykem and whether or not everything will be out at once.
