Hello, is there any chance to download from somewhere a Netflix app and install it on hacked cfw WIIU ? I tired to search it on WiiU_USB_Helper but without any success but i find there other similar apps like "Hulu", "Amazon" etc but no netflix. :(

..Then update your system? Install Haxchi or something so you can use the eShop?
I don't own a Wii U but I'm pretty sure that's all you have to do
hmm thought i need to avoid system updates ? I have installed newest Haxchi. U saying eshop should work with cfw ?

On the Wii U, as long as you don't have CBHC (If you don't know what that is, don't worry about it for now), it is safe to update to 5.5.2.
Ok how i can check if i had installed CBHC ? Coz im not rly sure if i didnt installed it in past -.- and if i dont have it installed then i need to unblock dns etc. and just update the console now ?

Does your console autoboot to Haxchi? Or do you have to run the Haxchi title on the system menu?

And i can run HB App Store from there and i see i have "Installed CBHC" Before my console was autobot i think, when it start up there was something "Autoboting DS title etc"

CBHC is perfectly compatible with 5.5.2, don't know where this idea came from.

That is how homebrew works on Wii U, it is injected into the Mii channel. just exit the Mii. when you see "Autobooting" when booting the console, press the home button and choose autoboot and set it to "System Menu" which will autoboot to the menu with CBHC CFW running.

Ok so i should update my console with CBHC installed, then go eshop and download Netflix ? :)
Bingo! Just confirm again you have CBHC installed, and a title on your menu that says "DO NOT TOUCH!", that is the hacked DS title.

And just incase it doesn't go without saying:

DO NOT DELETE THE HACKED DS TITLE, DO NOT MOVE IT TO USB, AND DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, FACTORY RESET THE CONSOLE OR DELETE THE ACCOUNT OR UNLINK THE NNID ASSOCIATED WITH THE DS TITLE, OR YOU WILL BRICK!!!!

Then update should be fine, then you can get Netflix from eshop.

For future reference, you can get official Wii U and 3DS software from Nintendo's servers with a Windows computer using a program called Wii U USB Helper. and install them with an SD card and WUP Installer GX2.

In general, i don't recommend updating... We don't know if Big N will patches one day Haxchi...
You could have used NNU-Patcher (From the Homebrew Launcher [Download it via HBAppStore if not present]) & after that launched the eShop in 5.5.1...
(Don't worry if you did but, in the future don't do updates anymore....)

Wait. Is this for real? I cannot do a factory reset on my system once I installed CFW on it?

Is it just for CBHC, or is regular Haxchi affected by this as well? I'm running regular Haxchi only.

Cold-Boot Haxchi (CBHC, specifically, the hacked DS title) is basically your "system menu" when you install it. The console calls CBHC every time it needs to return to the menu, then CBHC loads the menu itself with patches. When you delete the title, you're deleting your "system menu". No Menu=Brick. If you really need to format the system or do any of the other said actions with CHBC, there is an uninstaller for CBHC. Regular Haxchi doesn't suffer this condition, since you need to call Haxchi yourself by launching the hacked DS title. Deleting regular haxchi or unlinking the NNID to it will just lose you access to offline homebrew.

Oof! Less worried now.

Don't mind using regular Haxchi, and I'm not so tech-savvy, so I'll keep at it. Thanks for the info!
