    I had some questions before I buy a wii u that is hackable.

    How would I go about updating games and downloading dlc?

    Also after reading it seems like an SD card is the only way to store games and external is not possible. I think this true?

    Would I be able to access the e-shop still? I probably won't do this since I don't want to get my Wii u detected and banned (even though I couldn't find any evidence of someone getting banned yet better to be safe then sorry.)

    I hear the wii u updates automatically even if its off? Can i just put fake internet connections on it so it can't access the internet if I intend to just use it as a offline system. (

    Also lastly does anyone know the firmware of the smash/splatoon wii u console combo?

    That's not good advice unless you're willing to wait for a VERY long time.
    Look at Citra. It's made lots of progress, but still can't play Pokemon Y.
