    So I have been on 5.3.2 spoofed to 5.5.1.
    I have used Loadiine, and now Brazilian hacks...

    I would like to install DLC for some of my USB games.
    About to attempt REDNand install, so....

    -Should I update to current FW?
    -Will I lose any games that have been installed using Brazilian hack method after update?
    -What needs to be done prior to updating? Since i'm spoofed, and Nintendo servers router blocked...



    Thanks Guys.

    wow you can downgrade wii u now? ;)

    I upgraded from 5.3.2 to 5.5.1 and no regrets, no real reason to stay on 5.3.2 anymore

    I don't think you would lose access from upgrading the fw you will just gain more compatibility since a few games requires 5.5.1 fw

    Nah, no need to format sysNAND.
    It's only to unlink it from redNAND.

    So im getting "your system is up to date" when trying to update from 5.3.2 to 5.5.1
    I am spoofed.

    You can't un-spoof without updating.
    I heard someone else say that if you launch the eShop without NNU-Patcher, it will prompt you to update. Might not work, but there's no harm in trying.

    Odd. It lets me into the eshop without running any exploits.

    I know for certain that I'm on 5.3.2 and spoofed to 5.5.1

    I guess I can't update ?

    Do you have the "TVii" icon on your home menu?

    I had the same problem as you; I just made sure to set my DNS to "auto-obtain" instead of having it use tubehax, then when I went to system settings > update it downloaded the 5.5.1 update.

    If it still says you're up to date after this, then you aren't spoofed and are actually on 5.5.1.
