    Try connecting your Wii U to the internet, this should solve your problem.

    In fairness, Miiverse doesn't work on the Switch either.

    Don't know if this is a joke or not, but just in case if it isn't. To get around the issue, I had to lower the VR score to find people 50,000 (0xC350) should do the trick. Best time to change the score is when you at the online menu where your score is displayed, then change it and go through the character selection screen and what not. If done right and you're in the room with people, then your VR should revert to original value, but should go ahead and copy the original value before poking the new value just in case.

    maybe they realized that some players cant buy stuff off the eshop because they didn't have space to put it? plus the thing had 2 gigs of ram, and it wouldn't lose stability over 300 small thumbnails in memory, lets do the math : so 300 * 64 kb tga files with 1 ko of meta data each, thats 19 MB in 1gb of usable ram.

    What's the difference between cold haxchi and normal haxchi?

    I also played on my Wii U today and it did not update. Is this only a European thing?

    I think it’s more about having all the games “at the ready” for some reason.

    Does this 5.5.4 update cover the UK I have looked on Nintendos official .co.uk wiiu update list web page but it mentions nothing about the new firmware 5.5.4? Only lists the latest as 5.5.2.

    Yes. Mine updated last night. Relaunched the "don't touch me" CBHC icon after update and then the homebrew CBHC installer to restore 'hax' to normal.
    Non CBHC haxchi users should be unaffected - just launch your haxchi app as per normal.

    Thanks for confirming. Nintendo are not very good at keeping there .co.uk site updated, it still only mentions 5.5.2E for the WiiU as the latest firmware update. I was going to update my wiiu yesterday by spoofing it but I left it in the end until today I just checked the main web site just to be sure for the uk but it never mentioned a 5.5.4 update then I was confused.

    I also checked the different Nintendo website variants. I found nothing about 5.5.4.
    How can people mention 5.5.4 news and end the post with some link called "official source..." There's no official source!

    I think someone mimic the system update link and released a 5.5.4 not official update....!

    It doesn't work like that. Nintendo of Europe probably forgot to update the website or they were too lazy. It happens from time to time.
