    It has been leakead that Wii U will recieve an update to 5.5.6 from 5.5.1, I saw a tweet from Wiiubru saying that I have to buy DS VC for haxchi, It's mandatory use haxchi or should I wait?

    You can get some DS games for under 10€, I'd just go for it :) I've actually set up Haxchi 2.0 myself today, can only recommend it.

    The update has been proven fake, but setting up haxchi is recommended. Safer, faster, update-proof, i'd say do it ASAP but dont worry otherwise.

    Is there any drawback on using haxchi? Is it reversible, or permanent (e.g. by uninstalling the DS game?)? Is it propable that wii u will be hackable without a DS game soon?

    NO, you have to uninstall to undo the hack, and no, we are far from not needing a DS game.

    It doesn't have any drawbacks and is reversible by deleting the ds vc game you've used and reinstalling it in the eShop. You should choose a DS game that you don't actually want to play though, since you obviously won't be able to play the game anymore.

    I had it (mario rpg) and it's awesome to not need the browser to execute hombrew launcher. It's like wii homebrew launcher so <3 and I think I'll not install auto start cfw, is not that bad to go homebrew launcher and for titles installed you needn't execute homebrew either, so it's basically pure love.

    I'd recommend it. Worth a few bucks to be able to launch homebrew without needing to use the browser exploit. Depending on how frequently you use your Wii U it can save you a lot of time.

    I'm asking because the Wii U was, supposedly, going to update, so I couldn't buy the game and, maybe, get access to the Browser.

    The system update news was fake, but Nintendo could theoretically update the DS VC at any time to block haxchi, so yes buy one now if you can.

    Haxchi is on sysNAND and then boots to cfw or redNAND . I've got mine setup to boot into redNAND .

    Which DS VC titles are compatible? Other than booting homebrew without the browser, are there any other advantages?

    The advantage is that you don't need internet to load the exploit (or self host at local) and you have a way to auto open at startup the CFW.

    You can set a config for it to boot your favorite homebrew by holding a button so say
    Holding nothing boots homebrew launcher
    Holding A boots fw.img
    Holding B boots Sdcaffine
    ect

    Well i guess you could get a DS game and then haxchi it or whatever people say, if you like that game or something, dump it first and make it work in the loadiine and you can still play your game and not need browser for homebrew. :)

    Two safe options for price of one. Or you can also make injects from the Dump DS game to play other ds games in loadiine as well. I do it often, Got Chrono trigger, final fantasy 4 Sonic rush Bomberman 2, Mega man zero collection, Super robot taisen og saga endless frontier.

    So if you never had a NDS game you should get one while is on sale or least the lowest price. Someone said Kirby mass attacck is on sale until december 5 which is like next week so $5 if you in the usa. :P

    If you are from Spain, then you will be using the EU e-shop, if using using a PAL console. Brain Training was a free download when I downloaded it last week and was still free Yesterday.
