I'm new to modding a Wii U, so please bare with me. If it helps, I do have experience with using cheat codes via Gecko on the Wii (not vWii). I have read the pinned topics, but I'm still a bit unclear, hence, why I'm asking here.

My Wii U is currently on firmware 5.5.1U. I know that 5.5.2U patches some things in previous releases, so I'd like to know a few things:

1) How would I block my console from updating its firmware, but at the same time, continue allowing it to update games? I'm thinking about using the DNS/TitleDB(dot)com method but I'm not sure if it fits my needs and/or is the best way to do so.

2) I'm interested in using cheat codes just like how you could use codes on a Wii using Gecko. How do I do this on a Wii U and is there a site for me to find such codes?

3) I currently use Loadiine GX2 and have files stored in my SD card. If cheat codes are supposed to be saved in an SD card, can I use the same card for both Loadiine and cheat codes or will I need two separate cards?

4) Do I need to install the Homebrew Channel (or whatever it is called for the Wii U) to accommodate my needs? (It's okay if I have to)

Thanks!

Get rid of Loadiine - literally garbage right now anyway. Mostly get your games on USB through proper install. For cheats, you'll have to look into RTM (hacking over your LAN connection) - local cheating generally is reserved for stuff like Smash Bros. Don't use DNS blocking, not point. Simply follow the guide for Haxchi and update to 5.5.2, and all the other stuff will fall into place.
