    I noticed my Wii u prompted me to update 5.5.2, I have CBHC installed. Is it okay to update or do you guys recommend against it? or installing some additional stuff before updating? Do I update straight through the system or should I install it via wup?

    @iAqua i thought CBHC wouldn't work on 5.5.2, as update overwrites system xml(?)?

    I can also add to the list of people who updated with cbhc and lived. Nothing changes, it all works just fine. Literally you could have been auto updated and not know it if you were running cbhc, it looks like nothing happened. Probably should make a topic or sticky since I couldn't find a definite answer and just tried to see if it would work or not hehe.

    What is the version number after updating? 5.5.1 cbhc used 999999, yet there was no way of testing it since no update was out until now. Does it show 5.5.2?

    I don't use mocha and dont intend to. Cbhc is a patched sys anyway and does the same job.

    No you don't have to. I just said that using that can reveal the actual version

    I know but my question is I want to know if 5.5.2 changes the chbc version string or not.

    Updating to 5.5.2 is fine if your Wii U is already hacked.
    But a virgin Wii U in 5.5.2 can't be hacked now because the only entry point (web browser) is patched

    I'm not a idiot. I know that. however it still counts. In 3ds term it would be called a secondary exploit. A exploit that requires a previous entry point

    That's odd, he says it breaks it but everyone else says it's fine?
