Hello everyone! I am new to the Wii U Hacking community, I just wanted to buy the Wii U and I found a basic used one at a very good price! The only problem is that it is on version 5.5.0 and as I have read there are some exploits being worked right now and no one knows when (and if) they will be released! So, do you think the exploit for 5.5.0 is near or should I try find and buying another one on 5.3.2 or lower? Anwers will be much appreciated!

Welcome. :) If the price is that good that you can't turn it down, and you don't mind being patient for somewhere between a few weeks and a few months, then go for it. If the price difference isn't that much, then it might be worth it just to find a 5.3.2 system. We will know a lot more information about timelines for exploit releases in the next week or two though.

Apparently, Hykem is releasing a Christmas exploit for 5.5.0, so I don't know if it's worth getting a new Wii U yet.

Thanks a lot for your reply! The price is 170 euros for a week old Wii U Basic Pack+Super Mario Bros U+ Super Luigi U+ Super Smash Bros. From what I have seen it seems like a really good price for an almost new Wii U! I don't mind waiting since these games will keep me busy for a while (and as far as I know we always have the vWii). What is your opinion on the price?

That is a great price (at least converted to USD lol) for a "new" system! If it were me, I'd jump on it. Like you said, you can play the games until we figure this Christmas IOSU exploit out and see what everyone's options are. Just use TubeHax DNS to make sure you don't update to the next firmware that Nintendo rolls out.

    Huh, makes sense; they did sell that through the 3D All-Stars collection.

    Which, last I heard was removed from the eShop...so they might as well offer it again, I guess...

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Will they use the same Shindou-translated ROM, or the original English ROM?

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    googling it, it seems that mario 64 is on the service

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    in japan they use the shindou version apparently but in the states and elsewhere they use the original rom

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    honestly the whole expansion pack confuses me since i thought the nes/snes games were just a neat little bonus
