    Just wondering. I know coldboot sigpatches everytime you turn on your console but that does mean it can block all future updates? just a little confused about this..



    Also kinda off topic but is there a program out there that will let me rip my own games to my HDD?

    CBHC v1.5u1 sets system version temporarily to 99.99.99 so theoretically no software update should ever trigger if you are running cold boot. No one will be able to test if it works until there is an actual update available

    Will software updates ever trigger through online mode in games? also can I update CBHC from the homebrew store?

    If you block nintendo's update servers, or use a DNS to do so, it will allow you to play online without risk of updating.

    Ah ok thanks. Does Nintendo have a way of telling if you have a modded system? has their been any online bans as of yet? what if i'm using a backup of my own game but not the actual disc think that will piss them off? lol.


    So if there's ever an update for coldboot I can just get that then?(assuming another Nintendo updates comes out I mean.)


    One more question can gamecube and wii games be installed and played on modded wii U's?

    I don't think I'm quoting this out-of-context, but @Cyan did have a bit to say about the "99.99.99" version number protection.
    If he corrects me, one of us can -snip- my post for accuracy.

    People have been banned, but only for using hacks online.

    It will be easy to update your cfw (whichever you choose).

    You can play gamecube and wii games on vwii. Some wii games can played as wiiu vc, but it will just boot vwii mode anyway.
