    So I recently bought a 128gb sd card for playing Wii U backups. I am on 5.5.0. I have some questions I need help getting answered.

    1. Can I spoof my 5.5.0 to 5.5.1? (I know you can on 5.3.2)
    2. Are Wii U games from a bay site or gotten from an iso site.
    3. If I am correct you can't play online with backups?
    4. Can I add updates and dlc to my games?

    Most of these you can answer with a simple yes or no if you like. I will do most of the research just wanna know if its possible. Thanks!

    1. Yes you can but you might as well update. Because Iosu will reportedly work on 5.5.1

    2. Iso site and chaos site

    3. Yes you can't play online

    4. Yes you can add updates

    As far as I'm aware dlc does not work on loadiine but I could be wrong.

    You have to buy DLC, and then you can use the DLC in Loadiine.

    Hey, I hope it's okay if I ask my question here, too.

    Is it only possible to play the backups of your sd card?
    Some guys are selling their service on eBay that they softmod your wiiU including playing from both, sd and external hdd.

    Is it planned that it will be supported soon?

    edit:
    before I get flamed, I know that many guys of you're telling it's not working, but as I said, some guys sell their service and on the wiki comptability list, I think I've seen some working games which confused me (or I watched two tables at the same time, one with working hdds for vWii and one for games for WiiU)

    That service is probably for Wii games, those can be played from SD card and HDD, Wii U games currenly cannot and there's no way around this, even softmod services can't do it, since they're just charging people to install publicly available free software on their Wii Us.

    No its not possible. Check the fine print. You can use external USB hard drive for playing on the wii side of the wii u only. Not anything wii u related for USB yet
