    Wanted to try Loadiine. :yayu:

    Searched the forum. Saw that I needed 5.3.2. I have seen some lists for discs with updates. All lists seemed to convey that all regions would likely have the same system menu version.

    From the lists I chose to buy Lego Jurassic Park USA version. Least expensive game at the store.
    Was not sure if it contained the update. I wanted to dump the disc first.
    Blocked all updates from internet. I recommend following all the guides.
    Began with system menu 4.0.2
    Followed all the guides to get exploit webpage up.
    Ran webpage locally.
    Kernel exploit worked about 5% of the time. Generally got a locked up system and had to force power down.
    Was not able to get cafiine to work (glitchy screen indicated it is not compatible with my system menu.)
    Could not get TCPGecco to operate it would go to a black screen after hitting "any key".

    I gave up on trying to dump the Lego Jurassic Park disc.

    Took a chance that the system menu update on Lego Jurassic Park was 5.3.2. To date I could not find anyone confirming that USA version had the update.
    Ran update from disc.
    I was happy to find after update competed I am now on system menu 5.3.2U using disc update found on USA version of Lego Jurassic Park.:D

    Could not get exploit to successfully run locally or over internet.:wacko:
    Tried all posted websites.
    System locked up or would glitch to black screen with random white pixels on game pad and black screen with random red pixels on TV.

    After about giving up I found and followed this guide (specifically the post #3 from https://gbatemp.net/members/lordhell.39492/ ):

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/help-wi...creen-with-glitches-dots.403683/#post-5819286

    Bingo.
    Exploit works.
    Loadiine works.
    Thanks to all the developers.:yay:

    Hope you get it running faster than I did. Cheers!:grog:

    Just wanted to say thanks for your story ! People on here tend to ignore anything they read in another thread (Jurassic Park 5.3.2 update on disc). I'm glad you are enjoying loadiine, until the eventual ISOU exploit !

    Gambia, The
    Extremely helpful. Even got those four steps on a small instructions paper right besides my WiiU.

    This is the correct link to the comment btw.

    Oh man! Thanks so much for that hint on the third post thing! Worked like a charm. I was never successfull to getting it to work until I tried that for the first time, and it got the job done.

    Now I can finally have some fun on my wii u :P
