    So I'm probably gonna pick up a 5.3.2 Wii u tomorrow and want to know if it's possible to system transfer from my 5.5 console to a 5.3.2 one using the firmware spoofer.

    Well that's disappointing. Any way I could at least get my NNID moved?

    I think you can contact Nintendo and tell them that you already gave your old Wii U away so you couldn't do a system transfer. Although I'm not sure if you could actually redownload all your stuff, so I wouldn't recommend that

    I could do that ig, but I need the smash DLC for tournaments. Gah, looks like I'll have to wait for an eShop spoofer >.<

    I did a similar thing just vice versa, my wiI u was 5.3.2 and I picked up a second one that was on 5.5. I took the 5.3.2 offline and called nintendo, they transfered my nnid to the new console and I re-downloaded all my e shop content on both vwii and wii u. All the games stayed on my 5.3.2 wii also since I never actually removed my nnid from 5.3.2 wii u. Now I can use crediare spoofer/updater and play online with both wii u.

    Can you also move your savegames with a flashdrive? Did you test it?

    I can move my saves and updates to my external media. Since the nnid is the same on both your consoles, will not work if you connect the flashdrive to another console???

    I will test it out, I one stay never tried cause I didn't care too much about the current save games I had. I'll report back here shortly with results.

    Edit: I copied save games and content to a USB drive, but the drive is only readable in the wii U that formatted the drive. The format screen itself says it's only use able on this console, maybe one day we will get home brew to bypass thathe but for now it's not possible

    Nope, that's right. It's part of Nintendo's piracy/hack protection
