    5.3.2 is best. 5.4.0 will work, anything under 5.3.2 can be updated to 5.3.2 5.5.0 or higher is bad. Use this to find out which serial numbers have which firmware http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/WiiU_Serial_Number_Database

    Online play with backups and custom firmware are not possible right now.
