    Hi all,

    I brought a 5.3.2 Wii U last month ready to play Zelda Twilight Princess HD. So im guessing when I pop in the game disc its going to ask me to update?

    What do I need to do to play the game with out updating? I know I can spoof the firmware but is that not recommended?

    Thank you for any help

    Spoof your console, install game updates with some NUS grabber tool, and WUPInstaller.

    I have a 5.3.1 console and a 5.5.1 console. On the 5.3.2 console, I have spoofed to 5.5.1 but haven't played any new releases at all. Is that all I need, or do I need to do anything to get a 5.3x based console to run the latest 5.5x based games?

    Noob question: do game updates need to be installed to operate new games?

    I have loadiine gx2 running self hosted, and plan to dump zelda myself to play via loadiine.
