    My Wii U is currently on 5.5.1, unhacked, but with a purchased DS title installed. System's unplugged.

    Guess I might get around to hacking it sooner rather than later.

    OSv10 and boot1 weren't touched so the kernel and IOSU exploits are still there, apparently haxchi still works on 5.5.2 (?) according to @RemixDeluxe

    I remember Nintendo doing this with the DSi too -- releasing an EOL update after most thought the system was abandoned.

    1.4.4->1.4.5 = 9 months. Nothing on the scope of this, lol.

    Further note: CBHC changes your FW to 99.99.99 so in theory you should be safe from updates (I still recommend the DNS anyways).

    We need confirmation nothing was patched. Always assume the worst with updates until proven otherwise.

    You are wrong 1.4.4 was in July 30th 2009
    1.4.5 was December 13 2012 so not 9 months

    Nintendo. Fucking Nintendo. Well, at least the Wii U will remain stable until it's EoL.
    Was SDCafiine on Loadiine.ovh patched?

    this is so incredibly funny, so I assume people with haxchi/cbhc are just fine since there is no major kernel/IOSU update but for anyone that still wants to hack a wiiu on 5.5.2 would need a new browser exploit for literally no reason. by now we just have to hope theres no wii 4.4 system menu update :P

    What the hell, Nintendo? You didn't show any interest in the Wii U and now you pull this bullshit? Time to DNS block you punks' update servers.


    Suck it long and hard, Nintendo.


    Edit: Whoops, did I unplug the console? Silly me.
