    No. Spoofed only makes your system think that it's on 5.5.1. Internally, nothing changed other than the version that appears in settings

    Thanks. I had to self host the exploit using mongoose. For some reason IIS won't work. Anyway is working now. I am having to run the exploit every time I start the wiiu. Is that normal?

    That's normal, the exploits are only temporary. Maybe with IOSU we will be able to install permanent exploits, I am not sure if IOSU is all that's needed for that.
