    1. Is it confirmed there is a system update in Zelda BotW? If not, when's the soonest we can know?
    2. Has anyone out there been able to play Zelda yet? Considering it seems like the necessary files have already been leaked?
    3. How soon did it take previous system updates to have spoofs available?

    4. How likely is it that BotW on launch will be able to run on a lower system firmware (even if its the retail disc)?

    Basically I REALLY want to play Zelda and I'm going to buy it at launch, but I'm rolling the dice whether it will make my WiiU permanently unmoddable or not.

    The tik was released, so anyone with CFW can play Zelda now.

    I thought just the European version was released of that. Or is there just one tik for everything? Sorry, I'm extremely new to this.

    Also, does me having the retail version of the game make this process easier, or is that tik file the main component needed regardless if it's a legit copy or loaded from something?

    It's not a system update (despite saying that in the notification you get when launching the game) it's a simple patch for the game. And yes, if you have the game + tik as well as the patch you can play it. Many people are doing so.

    The tik is for the European version, but there's nothing stopping you from playing it.

    Whoa, wait a sec. So, I could be playing BotW right now????? And other people are playing atm too??

    Also, does this mean that if I have the retail version, I wouldn't even need any other files to play?

    So here's what I'm thinking. I either need:

    1) the ripped game (that would have the game patch update already within it), the tik file, a way to load it
    or
    2) the retail game

    to play BotW on my 5.5 console. Is that correct?

    All you need is the game, tik, and update, yeah. If you're using Haxchi/CBHC or Mocha CFW, you can be playing right now.

    Final questions. If I play off of CFW, and want to be able to play Mario Maker online with a legit copy, is that still possible? Or do I have to spoof being able to play online?

    Let me ask. It's probably dumb but oh well. I always need to be in cfw to play because it's out of region right?

    Just play Mario Maker from a clean boot, only run the CFW when you need to. Launching Mocha doesn't install anything to the best of my knowledge.

    So now that I'm in a little deeper into this, some more questions:

    1) What do I do with a title file?
    2) The game seems to be in just one folder, no subfolders. A lot of .app and .h3 files. Can I just put this in the "games" folder in my SD Card? Or is there a preloading thing I need to do?

    I don't see why you wouldn't be able to play online with Mario Maker, legit or otherwise.

    That is correct.

    The tik goes into the game folder titled "title.tik"

    The folder of game files goes into the "install" folder for installation.

    Game doesn't work through loadiine at all (unpatched or updated), works fine through USB, requires update installed on USB, and update is fake signed so requires haxchifw or sig patched sysnand to play.
