    I haven't updated yet, but does anyone know if this blocks out anything homebrew-related?

    Confirming. This doesn't do anything to interfere with the vWii.

    No changes in OS performance, not upgrading.

    Actually there are ppl reporting an improved loading time of the OS and menus. Didn't try it yet but I'll definitely install when I get home.

    I thought that was being released in April as part of Nintendo's "big" update. I haven't seen anyone report faster times.

    Are vWii IOS36, 56 and 57 still the same version? If they are updated people that haven't modded yet will have problems installing cIOS236 and D2X.

    It says it improves stability. My guess it that it helps the freezing issue to a certain degree. Although I still have some problems mainly when using the Internet Browser for video. Everything else such as Miiverse appears more stable.

    Bit Trip Runner 2 still freezes but theirs a patch for that coming soon.

    Just for clarification, a WiiU System Updated only handles the WiiU System Nand and does not touch vWii Nand.
    If Nintendo wants to patch something on the vWii, they can just do it via Spotpass.

    How would you block an update? What if we want to not update in the future. All I saw was an OK button, no cancel button. On the Wii, updates can be blocked by turning on parental controls. Does that work with the Wii U? It made me update before even signing in.

    Maybe disconnect the network IF you know of the update before you turn the console on?

    I think this is one of the things this update did: It only lets one dialog appear at a time, and so 100 dialogs won't queue and you have to wait a looong time.

    Won't work. It downloads the updates in the background. The update finishes downloading, doesn't tell you. You turn it off. Next time you turn it on, it will already have it and force you to install it. Plus, it's tricky to disconnect wireless internet. You would have to block it at the router level. Plus, I need the internet. The main things I use the Wii U for is Netflix, and Hulu, and MiiVerse, and Youtube, and Shop Channel. I could watch videos on my laptop or bluray player, but I like doing it on the Wii U better.

    I don't know if keeping downloads paused all the time in Download Management would work. Probably not.

    The proper solution is to block access to just Nintendo's update servers, if they have separate servers for that. Then just unblock them when wanted. I can't find the address though. Could someone please sniff their network during an update check to find the IP/Domain of the update servers?
