    According to yellows8, a developer of 3DS exploits and homebrew, the "libstagefright" exploit used in his New 3DS browserhax "browserhax_fright" could actually work on Wii U version 5.5.0's Internet Browser.

    I just wanted to see what everyone thought about this. I don't really know much about Wii U homebrew, but I just wanted to have someone who DOES know something see this.

    Thanks!

    It's already been confirmed that it does. It's just not stable yet, it's currently being worked on

    nothing new really apparently the private userland exploit that dev's were using for 5.4+ was based on the same vulnerability, without the private kernel exploit (which is remaining private for the foreseeable) you would be playing pong clones

    Why can't they just release the 5.4.0 exploit? I want to play Mario Maker, but can't until I get an exploit to firmware spoof.

    Not really. Then you would have to wait even longer for a 5.5.0 exploit. If you keep updating, it will end up like on the 3DS, where you end up on 9.9 and forever locked out of anything good.

    It isn't anywhere near stable, or so they say. What they've publicly said is that with fine tuning they've got it to work 100% on exactly one console, but the offsets are somewhat console-specific or something to that effect

    The 5.5.0 exploit being worked on will it have kernel access like the ones from 3.0.0-5.4.0 or will it be more restricted

    their exploit has only been revealed for like 1 day, give them time, they have said they plan to release now that this exploit has been revealed but they will need time to try fine tune it and get it ready for public usage, we have seen how moany people have been with the current exploit that is actually pretty stable, i doubt they would get much peace if they put their currently temperamental exploit out with people complaining it doesn't work for them, the good news is its "coming", just give them time and wait patiently

    You still have to buy games, regardless. So they should be able to go online imo anyways if they bought it, along with update the game, without having to update hardware they own. But then again, we could argue about all that fine print all night. Lol.

    Edit: Especially judging from your username, mr 360 hax! :P

    It means they can't keep horses in the exploit.

    Basically that its not 100% working without as many flaws as possible. They want to make sure its reliable and not half assed and rushed.

    5.5.0 is the latest firmware on Wii U, right? And how do you prevent updates? I think on setup I made them automatic.

    You could use your ISP parental controls to block the url for updates and eshop or you could just disconnect the wii u from the internet
