    Oh! I thought you meant red. I think blinking orange means you're in standby mode, you can disable that, which I would - no need to keep it powered if you're barely using it at all.

    I know that support for both 3DS and Wii U ends in June 2021. But does it mean you can't use the app anymore? Or they just won't work on updates anymore and the app still works with their final update? :)

    As far as I know the service will discontinue at the source, you won't be able to connect anymore.

    Sorry,I also meant RED.
    ORANGE is connected to the Internet and maybe (try to) download something
    (Demo/Update/Streetpass/Mii or whatever) in Stand By.:)

    Yes, normally an orange light in standby means there's a pending download waiting for you when you start the system up, however IIRC custom firmware seems to have a persistent problem with a blinking orange light in standby regardless of the download queue. I'm not entirely sure why, but the issue is benign. The easiest way to get rid of the blinker is to disable standby altogether, or you can just ignore it - it doesn't mean anything if those are the circumstances.

    What about the 99.99.99 E from the consoles with CHBC? Will this be overruled by the new update? Or since it's like the console is on a "higher" version, it won't update to the new OFW version? :huh:

    I still play my Wii U, just beat Breath Of The Wild on it. It’s not a bad console. It has its share of great games on it. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who still play this console, hell, I still play the Wii from time to time.

    This, no emulator will beat gamecube games running natively on hardware, Wii U is truly the only modern way without hardware mods to play GameCube games via HDMI output as well as the Wii, not to mention VC injections for officially made emulators for the DS/GBA/N64/SNES/NES, the Wii U along with a 3DS covers the entirety of Nintendo's history of console games, I don't think any new system from Nintendo will ever beat the library of games the WiiU and 3DS have access to.

    It's not big issue. Update if you want to renew browser SSL certificates validity (if you use Wii U browser). That's the only changelog I believe..

    This made me curious so I decided to check if my (European) Wii U would update, and it did.
    Fortunately, it didn't brick with CBHC installed.
