    is this compatible with coldboot haxchi 5.5.1 ?

    i tried this multiple times with a lot of different versions of homebrew launcher and wupinstaller, through the browser exploit and nand installed hbl and it says it was installed successfully but it seems to do nothing. wup installer gx2 says this is no

    my game black ops 2 still wants to do a system update before downloading the game update.

    in this youtube video at 6:33 mins the guide says to verify the spoof go to system settings and it should show 5.5.2 as fw version. on cbhc it still shows 99.99.99

    so i suppose this is only for ofw, right?

    You have coldboot haxchi so just update to 5.5.2 as haxchi and all homebrew are compatible with 5.5.2 anyway.

    You need to boot without HaxchiFW to see the real version. You can do that by cancelling autoboot (IIRC a message appears telling you something like "press home to cancel autoboot" when you power on, press whatever button it says) and booting into HBL, then going back to the home menu by pressing Home to exit to Mii Maker, then Home again and "Close Software". I don't know if there's another way to boot stock OFW with CBHC but that way should work.
    Also, the update blocking method in that video is no longer the recommended method, the method in the first post is much more failsafe.
