    Hello!

    Today I brought a used Wii U Deluxe (in firmware 5.3.0 U). But I've been searching, and I cannot upgrade this console to a specific firmware (in this case, 5.5.1) - like 3DS - only to newer.
    Well, Can I run any CFW or exploit into Wii U with firmware 5.3.0? If yes, what tutorial is better to execute?
    In ours opinion, is better jailbreaked this console now or wait for update of exploits?

    Thanks for helping!

    You'll have to find a game that has the 5.5.1 update on it. There is a list in my guide (it's in my signature)

    If they have 5.3.0, surely they could get 5.5.1's update files and install?

    Thanks for replying!

    Yes, i read your tutorial yesterday, but in Brazil is hard to find some games for Wii U. Specially new games. I find BotW, but is very expensive. I dont find any used games from your list to buy in ML (the brazilian ML). For this, I think if I may update to 5.3.2, it's just more easy find Splatoon.


    If the disk have update files, why not? It's like a common sense in GBAtemp make a update from disc. If I get some game with this update, i'll test and report here :)

    Can't be done. Nobody was able to rip any of the earlier updates and make them installable. It's not as easy as you think. Do a search for 5.5.1. update files on here. This is not a new idea. There are already multiple threads on the subject

    Well, I dont wanna update my Wii U from update files directly. But is possible jailbreak from 5.3.0? Or I get at least for 5.3.2 to jailbreak? Like I said, its hard to find in my region a game with update files.

    Buy a 5.5.1 game (BotW, Toad etc.) instead

    "Toad" is a Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, right?

    As Felek666 said, your best bet is to get one of the update games (botw or captain toad).
    In saying that, yes the game is expensive, but does Brazil have a return policy? You could buy the game, update, and return it and receive your money back.

    Does Brazil have a place to rent games?

    Yes, Brazil have a Return Policy for online shopping: you could return any product brought in internet or via telephone in 7 days. But much vendors dont follow the law, and this causes a big headache. its my last choice to do but I don't know, i feeling like doing wrong thing.

    Yes, but is unusual. I've tried one place to rent, but they dont have newer games.

    "it's not as easy as you think"
    I'm surprised nobody's extracted them from a disc? There surely has to be a way someone can do it, Nintendo isn't known for their smartness with this type of thing.

    When everyone was on 5.4.0 and 5.5.1 came out there were threads created everyday that were on topic with getting the 5.5.1 update on an installable format.

    Please don't make me rehash those threads. Just look them up. It's easy to say "can't we do this" when you have no programming experience whatsoever. If you're not a programmer then don't assume that your "idea" hasn't been fleshed out. I Really don't have the patience for this today.

    Your "thought" has been thought of before. Research before you post. I'm sure the programmers that provide us with these hacks are sick of users creating new threads based on their "ideas" with no real understanding of the Wii U sub systems

    It's not anger. I'm hurting. We just lost a family member in a freak accident. I came to gbatemp to decompress and now I'm bleeding on you guys. I'm sorry

    Yeah craziest thing. My dear sweet cousin lost her oldest (11 year old daughter) when she slipped off a parade float and was ran over by the trailer that that truck was pulling. Hardest funeral I've ever attended (and I'm 40 years old)

    11-year-old girl hit, killed by trailer during parade in Nephi

    Ok, tomorrow (in Brazil is Friday yet haha) i'll buy any game with update.
    Captain Toad have 5.5.1 update, right? Because Kafluke Guide dont have this information. ICaptain Toad is 44 dollars (BotW is 90 dollars) in conversion between Brazilian Real and American Dollar.
