    People are going to give you various answers, but let me just tell you the real answer:

    Nobody knows.

    The hacking scene in general is always evolving and new things are found all the time. You never know when a new hacker shows up, a new firmware update, or a new exploit is discovered. The fact of the matter is, there is virtually nothing available at this time on Wii U. When things are actually released, it COULD be several months before an exploit is found for 5.5.0, OR an exploit could be found before anything is released. If you're looking to be on the cutting edge and get everything the day or week it's released, you may be out of luck, but in hacking it's always just a matter of time.

    Given that nothing is really available yet, I wouldn't worry about it. There's a pretty good chance more exploits will be found in the weeks and months to come.

    5.5.0 patches a kernel exploit that Nintendo discovered.
    Devs was working on it, so an exploit that uses 5.4.0 kernel access wouldn't be available for 5.5.0.

    It's always a good thing to block Nintendo updates. Also Smea's TubeHax DNS can be configured on WiiU in order to block automatic updates (and yes, also eShop and Youtube, but it's fair. In order to access them again, it's enough to disable manual DNS and do the switch only when needed).
    This article contains 4 way (3 valid, actually, not 4) to block nintendo updates on WiiU and 3DS

    Didn't @Marionumber1 say that he ported a really buggy exploit for 5.5?

    The 5.4.0 userspace exploit got ported over to 5.5.0. Early this August, I also developed a second kernel exploit that hasn't been patched on 5.5.0, and is currently private.

    That's good, then. I'm currently storing my Wii U away for a bit, so I'm looking forward to it, until then!

    I don't understand some of these people?, they know the wiiu will automatically update and then its melt down time when it does and its quite easy to get around just make sure you take off auto software downloads in interent settings and also take off standby functions while your in system settings then go back to your internet connections and change all your connections to don't auto obtain dns and put in both boxes> 107.211.140.065 and save! Its quite easy guys just for future reference!

    Edit: just noticed, sorry this is an old thread, 20th August :O why has it been reserected again
