How do we update games installed on USB while staying on 5.5.1?

    I have a couple of games that are advising they have updates, Call of Duty Black Ops II won't even start without the update.
    These games do not appear in WiiU USB Helper lists.

    Is there an app that will allow us to download the update on PC, to install via WUP Installer in WiiU?

    Or even an app that runs on WiiU that allows us to update games without updating our systems to 5.5.2?

    I am not currently running custom firmware, and I am pretty sure there is a simple way to do this.

    *edit*
    Thanks to those that took the time to read my question. NNU Patcher seems to be the answer. Once run via homebrew launcher, check you can connect to eShop, then simply launch game that requires update. I'm currently investigating why a couple of my games give server errors, while the others update fine.

    I think nnupatcher lets you update games and go into the eshop without updating just make sure you have system updates blocked before you try it

    NNU Patcher just gives an error message when I tried it. It does allow access to the eShop, which I believe is its main purpose.

    System updates are currently blocked with DNSHax.

    As mentioned in original post, these games are not listed in WiiU USB Helper. I think it is just listing games that are released in both disc and download formats.

    Is there a way to make WiiU USB Helper list additional titles, maybe using the Title IDs?

    Nnupatcher. I was able to delete and reinstall DS vc for haxchi (wanted clean files for haxchi update and cbhc, due to the previous ones being manually changed via wupserver).

    I used NNU patcher while on 5.5.1 to update my games just fine. I always test NNU patcher first by going into the eshop. If it lets me all the way in then it's working. Then I back out and run the game and let it do its update.

    yeah, nnu patcher is how I updated crunchyroll. I was testing out the app to make sure it worked. I'm still on 5.5.1, but it's best to be safe.

    NNU Patcher allows games updates to be installed normally. If NNU Patcher doesn't work, then there's a problem.

    I had an issue with nnu patcher since I was blocking the eshop's servers through a proxy. make sure the eshop servers aren't blocked.

    Thanks everyone, I'll retry using NNU Patcher. I did think it should have worked.
    I'm currently updating BOTW using WiiU USB Helper and SD card, so cannot try this immediately, but will try as soon as the update has transferred to my SD Card.

    I'll try using NNU Patcher method, instead of using WUP Installer with the files I'm downloading to check it is working fine. I'll also check my NNU Patcher is up to date, as before 5.5.2 was released I just allowed normal updates.

    I know it definitely allowed access to eShop as I tried this before I tried to update any games.

    *edit*
    NNU Patcher is working fine, I'm downloading updates for Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Breath of the Wild, but getting server error with updating Call of Duty: Ghosts. May be an issue with my copy of that game, so I will re-add this from disc to my USB again to make sure. Also getting server error with Funky Barn, but think I may just delete that one. :)

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    *edit* BOTW and COD Black ops 2 updated fine. problem must be my copy of COD Ghost.
