    Today I bought Wii U with 5.20 FW and DS game instaled.
    I updated to 5.3.2FW with Yoshi disk.
    But I can't instal haxchi on 5.3.2 i get mcp hook cannot be opened error (googled and i must update to 5.5.1 for haxchi instaler to work).
    A can use loadiine.ovh site, Is it possible to install Paper mario with wup instaler and update to 5.5.1 from that?

    Need to use a game with update on the disk. Any of these should do
    • Paper Mario Color Splash
    • Skylanders: Imaginators
    • Just Dance 2017
    • Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure
    • Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
    • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    • Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
    • Cars 3: Driven to Win

    At this point, the only way to jump to 5.5.1 is through a game disc update the poster above mentioned.

    I remember when 5.3.2 used to be the golden firmware to have haha

    Just a thought would it not be possible for someone to extract the update from one of the mentioned discs then upload it to the internet then you could just download the update and install it like you install games. Probably not possible as it would already have been done I guess.

    No. This topic went around several times with almost a thread creation every day asking the same thing when 5.3.2 was around and 5.5.1 had just come out. People were looking for a way to save the 5.3.2. Update
