    Does this get rid of Haxchi?

    a while back i got a wii u on ebay at a great price. the condition was also pretty good. in fact I still use the controller stand to hold my switch.... point being, i used haxchi on it withpout issues. to test my hacking abilities. then after getting a switch and doing basically the same. I got rid of it for a great profit cause it was modded.... glad i got out in time if theres no telling if the new update breaks hb and the waiting game begins.... just a rant :)

    I doubt it will, but nobody has said one way or the other.

    I doubt it breaks anything but I'm glad mine is unplugged. Feels like much longer than 2018 since the last update but you never know what's happening behind the scenes

    Deleting the update folder on your sysNAND also prevents updates.

    I don't even know what to say. I thought this thing was well dead at this point.

    It seems surprising, but the PS3 has also gotten updates as recently as earlier this year. And those updates actually blocked homebrew.

    Oh yeah, I think I've actually done that lol
    Been a while since I touched the homebrew side so I've forgotten all the tricks!

    That DNS system update blocker setting should do it too right

    yes, if the dns fails or goes down, you won't even be able to connect to the internet, so you're safe.

    Apparently it only updates the system menu. The exploits have nothing to do with the system menu.

    My Wii U looks about to tumble down off the cupboard. I will make sure to update ASAP.
