    Hello guys,

    Just bought Splatoon a little while ago, and when I tried launching the game for the first time, it displays "prepairing for update". I switched off instantly my Wii U, what does it mean? Is it a system update, or something from the game? Also, I have tubehax dns enable, should I fear something or am I safe?

    I am on 5.5.0 firmware btw

    Thanks for your help

    Yes it is a Splatoon update, not a system update.

    Normally you can't update your game wile tubehax is enabled. If you're on lower you can do the update through SD/PC otherwise disable tubehax, do the splatoon update en enable it as soon as you did the update.

    No stop!!! You need to update Splatoon through WupInstaller, else the system will update also!

    I have no fucking idea.
    He may have thought there was a new sys update. He did the right thing to ask here.

    Maybe because I spent all my last days of hacking and homebrew research on the 3DS and I am currently not aware of the must/musn't do's of Wii U? I am sorry if it is obvious that when you are on 5.5.0 you don't ask such questions, but since I decided not to sell my Wii U because of the exploit annoucment, I'd rather ask and don't make a mistake.

    Thats ok, no need to apologise. I was at fault, I just jumped to conclusions cause I'm on FW5.3.2 spoofed and I just thought you where spoofed as well on FW5.5.0 and I didn't want you to make the mistake of updating :)

    Just dot it!

    Yeah.. As all the other said - the alert is just there because of a splatoon update. It might also download other updates if you aren't carefully enough.
