    Hi everyone,

    i have my wii u on 5.5.0, so reading the guides it suggests to update to 5.5.1
    I could not find reliable info, if i update my console, i will get 5.5.1 or a higher firmware.
    Some info says tehre is a newer firmware from ninteno out and some say 5.5.1 is the latest.
    So i thought i will aks you pros in here :)
    Thanks for clearing things up.
    Cheers

    Thanks mate :)
    And afterwards blocking the nintendo update adresses on my router should be enough right ?

    No, setup Tubehax DNS in your connection settings on your Wii U to block updates.

    Primary: 107.211.140.065
    Secondary: 0.0.0.0

    Thanks everyone for your help. I just updated my wii u to 5.5.1 and i will block updates per dns, as unfortunately my router does not has the option to block specific adresses.
    So the fun can start. Much to read for me.
