    Hi,

    So on my Wii U, I have the Primary and Secondary DNS set to block Nintendo updates and so I am unable to update my games through this way. Before, I used to just use Wii U USB Helper to download updates and then install them but since recently that is obviously not possible, so how do I update my games now so I am able to open them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Remove the update block temporarily, if you have Haxchi/CBHC then you can update just fine anyway so there is not much point to blocking updates.

    Assuming you're on the latest firmware I'd simply knock the DNS off, update everything, and then put it back on once you've finished...
    EDIT - Ninja'd! :lol: He's right by the way, DNS is sort of pointless, and there's almost no chance of being another firmware update anyway.

    The latest launcher for the Wii U USB Helper workaround on Reddit should be functioning normally now.

    Thanks for all your quick responses. I should have told you that I am on 5.5.1 (spoofed to 5.5.2), with haxchi and I am using the DNS on loadiine.ovh . I will try your suggestions.
