    Is there any way?

    EDIT: I used uTikDownloadHelper and WUPInstaller to do this.

    You can download and install game updates using Wii U USB Helper.

    It matters because mine are Fake Sign, Eshop doesn't recognize that I have the game. When I enter Eshop it tells me if I want to BUY the game. So my only option is trying to run the game from the main menu, and then is supposed to ask me if I want to update the game, but I can't because I haven't update my console yet.

    Strange , it should ask you when trying from main menu even if your console isn't updated ...

    It askes me, but it tells me that I need to update first.

    Is it better than uTikDownloadHelper?

    It's a matter of preference, but most people seem to prefer Wii U USB Loader. It also includes more features and a better GUI.

    I'll try it with a digital game because each time I try to run a digital game I always need to run CFW. That's annoying.

    You must run CFW every time before running and/or installing any of the following types of games:
    • Digital Wii U games that didn't get disc releases
    • Virtual Console games
    • Games with illegitimately installed DLC
    • Homebrew channels
    The following do not require CFW to run/install:
    • Wii U games with disc releases
    • Updates
