    So I heard that everything still works for 5.51. I'm on 5.3.2. I haven't modded much else I a while and was wondering if I update now would I have to install the kernel exploit again? I also have the fake 5.51 installed already (forget what it's called).

    You should have updated like months ago. Just update. You can do anything you do on 5.3.2 on 5.5.1

    1. The exploit was never installed in the first place, unless you are hosting your own files.
    2. You can update while spoofed to 5.5.1 by accessing the eShop.
    3. Yes everything still works, you will need to update your links to use the 5.5.1 exploit. I recommend loadiine.ovh or wiiubru.com/x

    Oh my bad I meant hosting. I use my phone for self hosting since for some reason before I couldn't get it to work on the internet. Is tubehax still good or do I need something else? I read the wiiu guide for hacking but I don't know if it's updated.

    Yea, you will need to update your files. And I guess tubehax is fine, that I'm not sure of. People have mentioned another one lately, but I don't know the name.

    I'd recommend Kafluke's package, but I'm not sure if your webserver on the phone supports PHP. easiest way to find out is to try though. As far as not working online, I had that issue a lot with 5.3.2, but it doesn't really seem to be the case anymore using the stagefright exploit. I've never had one failure using loadiine.ovh. wiiubru.com/x includes a small wait timer like loadiine.ovh does so I'd imagine success rate is fairly similar if not the same.

    Oh, I did have to do the browser's "Save Data Reset" in it's own setting menu where you can delete cookies and change search provider. Other than that tho, just worked.

    No. you will brick your console if you try. And it's likely some network problem, either you or nintendo as you say. Remove tubehax to update if you didnt, just a reminder.
