    I put a :( next to all the recently patched things

    nice job nintendo patching one thing.

    Exploits:

    All the IOSU stuff: Works
    Kernel Stuff: Works (not with browser, that's broken)

    Entrypoints:

    Browser Exploit: Patched :(
    Haxchi: Works
    CBHC: Works (requires haxchi to setup now, no browser stuff)

    Safe to update if you have cbhc or haxchi setup.

    Thanks for the quick update, was surfing and saw 5.5.2. :O Looking forward if i can update. I do not use DNS or block stuff. Just haxchi and CBHC

    So we just wait for them to find another entry point, Nintendo's too apathetic to be bothered to patch all possible exploits. Personally I found the web exploit to be too unreliable; my WiFi sucks so getting a DS game and exploiting that is far more stable.

    I'm unfamiliar with the scene but, what primary exploits are left?

    none if you don't have haxchi, i'm sure someone will drop something and fix all of this within a month.

    Can't you still download the DS game and exploit that without a webkit exploit? Pretty sure you don't even need that really.

    how would you, current public stuff requires browser > homebrew > haxchi installer

    I thought CBHC could be done without requiring it. Anyways, Nintendo didn't likely patch every single exploit, they're too uncaring to do that.

    As long as you have the blocking enabled and haven't updated you will be able to install the all glorious HaxChi

    Which I have, I haven't used the web exploit in several months because of it. DNS blocking should work fine, but again, assuming there are interested people, there will be another exploit to use, but who knows. We may have another PS3 situation on our hands.
    Which will happen at some point, interested people pending.

    We've been advising people for months to protect against an update. I wouldn't count on an exploit for a long while. I just hope that at least some people listened to us.

    If you have CBCH/Haxchi installed, however, IOSU isn't affected as stated by Fix94 on the last page AFAIK.

    I'm screwed then. I'm on 5.51 one and use a sig patching thing and the web browser.

    Or use DNS blocking and don't update. Failing that, wait for a firmware spoof.

    That's what I'm saying. I fear for those that never installed HaxChi and didn't block updates or didn't get a nand backup.

    There are a lot of piss poor guides on the interwebs that skip very important steps

    It's the 3DS update scare all over, people act as though they're forced to update. Newsflash: They're not, I know, quite the plot twist.

    At the very least, maybe a firmware spoof can be released and installed to trick the Wii U into being 5.5.2. Who knows for sure.


    Nintendo flipped us off, it's time to return the favor.
