    I've applied the tubehax to the wireless settings, but i kind of do want to enable online mode for Xenoblade IF at all possible. I don't want to do it if ninja updates can screw me over at some point. Is there any way to keep that from happening? Heard about quick launch from controller. But i also heard the console might turn itself on while turned off to auto check and update if something is available.

    This is giving me a headache :S

    Tubehax doesn't disable online play.

    Tubehax only blocks nintendo's update servers and youtube. Disable the quick start menu. You will still be able to play Xenoblade X online, you just wont be able to connect to nintendo's update servers... So even if it did ninja update, it can't download it.

    Edit: Ninja'd

    If you're using TubeHax DNS, the only way you can be screwed over is if you set up a second WiFi connection without it, or if TubeHax DNS goes down.

    As a precaution, I'd set the following System Settings:
    Automatic Software Downloads: Disabled
    Standy Functions: Disabled

    In that case, it won't even connect to the internet.

    Just for clarification, it would only prevent DNS resolution. You would still be connected if your gateway is up. For example, going to google.com wouldn't resolve, but going to 172.217.1.14 would take you to google.

    Are you using a disc? Or are you playing from loadiine? Cause you can't play online with loadiine.
