    Did I do something wrong. Why is the console still asking me to update? I spoofed to 5.5 and it displays 5.5 on the system settings. I just want to download my eShop titles :(

    The system will always check for an update. You still need to block servers. don't let it update. You will get the real 5.5

    If he blocks the servers, though, he won't be able to access the eshop like he said he wanted to.

    I won't answer to that it is already answered to the firmware spoofing tutorial.

    Has this been confirmed? I've read in this forum some say that once spoofed to 5.5, you cannot get the real 5.5 and must wait for 5.6, and then others claim that if you spoof to 5.5 you can upgrade to the real 5.5.

    What is correct? Once it is spoofed to 5.5.0 you can't update?
    I spoofed to 5.5.0.E and blocked all the sites in my router but then... the kids took their wiiU to grandma ('s router). I am still on "5.5.0E" but I do not believe it is still spoofed. I have tried to open up Loadiine but nothing happens. How can I check if I am on the spoofed firmware or the regular 5.5.0E firmware?

    is nintendo tvii on the home menu , " the red little tv"??
    or did you get an error while want open eshop`?
    if not you are on real 5.5 cause the router from your mom not blocking the sites,
    thats because i use the tubehaxdns and config my router too
    just to be sure that someone want to play my wiiu at another house

    @moops44: Thanks for the reply... No more 5.3.2.E for my wiiU. Damn you Mario Maker and your fun factor! Nothing else to do then hope for a new chance for homebrew and emulators.

    My Wii U is on 5.3.2 and spoofed to 5.5.0. The first days I spoofed I've accidentally forgot to block the servers and it started downloading an update. It was about in 1/4 when I've noticed it and cleared with update removal tool. I assume it was the real 5.5.0

    yeah the console will update to real 5.5.0 even if you spoof, so you guys need to keep those servers blocked at all times

    No, if he uses the tubehax dns settings he can keep updates at bay while acessing e shop.

    What? No! If you're spoofed to 5.5, it shouldn't update to the real 5.5. That was the whole point about not going back. You can only update to a newer firmware.

    nope it doesnt work that way lol it should but it doesnt, the spoof is incomplete and nintendo knows it thats why we need nnupatcher to acess e shop even when spoofed, the spoofer is mainly for tricking games into online play and playing without prompting for the update but system updates and e shop know you dont have real 5.5.0 and will update you regardless.

    Huh, weird. I had this discussion with someone a month ago and we assumed that it would ONLY update if a higher firmware was found.

    An assumption is as good as a guess. It will update if a higher title version is found for any title in the system. Version.bin is just one file, but the others titles in the system are still older than the current version, and will try to update if the system finds they are out of date.

    I'm on spoofed 5.5.0 for a month now and it doesn't seem like it ever tried to update. I no longer block updates since then basically and nothing happened. Maybe I was lucky or it really doesn't update from spoofed 5.5.0 to real 5.5.0. Obviously exploits and such are working fine.

    it was like that for me for a while and then the red x started to appear again on the download icon. I've check it, it was a system update trying to download.

    Oh, I think that also happened to me once. Strange indeed. Maybe it failed because the firmware is spoofed because I didn't block updates?
