    I've been keeping track of the scene for a while.. I know there's sticky threads and such but it's really overwhelming. I'm sorry, I just need some assistance. I don't want to be the lazy person who's going to be like "is there an easy simple way just like wii??" or anything. I just need to get things together but it's all hitting so fast. Can someone tell me where can I begin? I read on the guide and I need to block updates and such but what do I do afterwards? Do I need to have my Wii U connect to my computer or..? Sorry if this is a bother of a post I know a lot of people usually just direct people to the stickies. It's just a LOT to take in. Seems really complicated but I don't want my wait on 5.3.2 to be wasted. Been waiting to go online for a while.

    Start with the "Definitive Guide", it will hand you everything you need on a silver platter :)

    What about spoofing to 5.5.0? Is that completely safe and such? No downsides to that?

    None that have been realized yet, it appears to be completely safe

    Some people are scared to spoof because it cannot be reversed at this time.

    However I can't think of any reason you would want to reverse the spoof.

    Thanks guys. As long as I still remain on 5.3.2 I honestly can't see any issues. Just wanted to be sure. I know if you usually update through means like EMUNand then hacks (like Ninjahax) can be broken off

    Wait does anyone know another way to URL filter? Seems like AT&T U-Verse doesn't support website filtering and that's already a pain to begin with..

    There are many people who only use TubeHax DNS and it's fine.

    Okay now I'm getting "Race Attack Failed". Do you know what I did wrong? I probably did something obvious wrong

    Nope, just keep praying

    Try clearing your history and save settings (from the browser settings). The first time running the Kexploit is a bit of a bitch, but it should work 100% of the time after that

    Okay I did it again and it returned me to the home button menu (no suspended software). I wasn't able to access the AIO Kernel Exploit page on my Wii U however..

    Also thank you for the replies

    "Race attack failed" means it is working as intended, well.... almost. You just have to keep trying, make sure to go to in and out of settings between each attempt.

    Yeah I did that. It stopped saying it and just put me on the home menu (where you can suspend your software) but I wasn't able to get to the AIO Kernel Exploit page (where you type in the port/IP). That just gives me an error code but I can access it through my regular web browser

    If it exited to the home menu then that SHOULD mean it worked

    Ah so I didn't need to go to the AIO Kernel Exploit through the IP/port..? I still can't access that for some reason even though the guide is telling me to get there

    I don't think it's required, I honestly don't even know what AIO is for if it's separate from the initial kernel exploit

    @FIX94, what is the AIO kernel exploit used for?

    I saw it under the main thing of "how to run the kernel exploit" so I thought I was doing things wrong but then I saw a URL to input into my Wii U browser which ran the exploit after going in and coming out of settings so I'm not even sure. Any way I can properly test to make sure I got the exploit going?

    Run any kernel based homebrew you want. If you have a GameCube controller adapter try GCpad-to-Vpad, since there's no chance of messing up the console
