    Note from Cyan : Since PokeAcer is banned and deleted his website's guide, here is a new one from Lacius.

    Guide from Lacius

    • Your Wii U needs to be on v5.3.2, v5.4.0, v5.5.0, or even v5.5.1.
    • This guide will update your console to v5.5.2 but will update/keep the browser version to v5.5.1 to retain the browser exploit.
    • Do not disable your DNS filtering after updating, or the browser will update itself to the latest version!
      • In addition to the using the proper DNS filters, you can also follow this guide to delete the update folder on your NAND to block updates. Using both methods (DNS filters and deleting the update folder) to block updates is recommended.
    Downloads
    Instructions

    Install OSv10 (000500101000400A) last, as it will freeze your Wii U (this is normal).
    1. Extract OSTitleDownloader.
    2. Download and extract the title list for your Wii U's version and region. Alternatively, you can make your own title list.
    3. Put your title list into the folder with titledownloader.jar and rename the title list as LIST.txt
    4. Find common.key online and put it into the folder with titledownloader.jar and your title list.
    5. Open a terminal/command prompt in that folder and type: java -jar titledownloader.jar -l LIST.txt
    6. Once it’s done, copy the install folder to your SD card.
    7. Extract and copy wupinstaller_y_mod_without_blacklist into your Wii U apps folder on your SD card.
    8. Run WUPInstaller Y-Mod from the Homebrew Launcher using the entrypoint of your choice.
    9. Select all titles except OSv10 (000500101000400A) and hit install to NAND.
    10. Once all titles are installed, install OSv10 (it will freeze, and this is normal).
    11. Reboot.
    Your Wii U should now be on 5.5.2 if you used one of my title lists, but the browser will still be on the vulnerable 5.5.1 version that can launch the Homebrew Launcher.

    Offline and official updates

    You can also update offline using a game disc. It doesn't involve homebrew at all.

    Games containing the 5.5.1 update:
    • Cars 3: Driven to Win
    • Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
    • Just Dance 2017
    • Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure
    • Paper Mario Color Splash
    • Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
    • Skylanders: Imaginators
    • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Yeah this really works - I went from 5.4 merely spoofed to 5.5.2 (thanks @iAqua for making that easy) to fully haxchi'd.

    How you copy new title to SD without power off?
    Just reject card? Its safe?
    Or maybe FTPU_everywhere?

    Why? You're downloading [system] titles in installable format then using wupinstaller to install them, not any differently from using SysUpdater or clones on 3DS
    (although on 3DS you typically had to pirate a cia pack since Nintendo removes old kernels/Home/browsers from their server, here we're getting everything from the original source)

    Great!!! With this guide i turn my 5.4.0 to 5.5.2!!! REAL 5.5.2 not spoofed!
    Thx...

    Region EUR.
    I use nusgrabber and wupinstaller_unsafe from 1st post.
    Download like this: nusgrabber.exe 0005001010041200 v560
    Install all titles from spoiler "5.4.0E -> 5.5.1E (spoofed to 5.5.2)"
    OS title install last (and have freeze after "Instalation successful")

    Now loadiine.ovh tell me "your firmware is 5.5.2"

    Official updates blocked with DNS.

    Be careful!

    I am on 5.5.0 EUR. I do not understand the difference between this two options. Also, It is not clear to me why it is recomended to install 4 titles in the EUR version and only 2 titles in the USA version. thanks!

    5.5.0 -> 5.5.1 EUR
    (5.5.2 version number)

    The browser version number is the one for 5.5.1

    The Loadiine.ovh URL will end with "552", tried changing it to "550"?

    Maybe NUSGrabber downloading is broken and actually got the last version? (When I tried it yesterday, it didn't save anything at all)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    "version number" gives you a 5.5.1 system but spoofed to 5.5.2
    "browser" gives you a 5.5.2 system but with the last exploitable 5.5.1 browser

    There's little practical difference, SSB4 with the newest game update may be the only game which cares if any do at all

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    There's an error in the OP, the American ones use the "version number" method as claimed, but the European one incorrectly shows the "browser" list while calling it the "version number" one

    Thanks, I understand now. Is it possible to install a clean 5.5.1 (not spoofed to 5.5.2)?

    "You may now take your SD card out if you want to" says it in the copy of the app you need to use

    It's just annoyingly repetitive.

    The version lists I give update your Wii U to 5.5.2 but give you 5.5.1's browser (5.5.2 VersionData means it can't actually update the browser)
    The only updates in 5.5.2 were AOC overlay, VersionData, and Browser - I do not update the browser, you can check the Internet Browser title yourself


    I was using the browser versions as it was to ensure users were going to get 5.5.2 with 5.5.1 browser to try to make things like SSB4 not get pissy, but I'll update the lists and put them on GH later with a full explanation for both - I also had the American title list off @trololo thus why it's version number

    That's... strange. I most definitely put v241 (5.5.1)'s browser in all titlelists...
    Maybe you accidentally downloaded the wrong version?

    Internet Browser's title is certainly 241; just incase, try http://185.82.21.64/wiiu/ and go to 5.5.1
    EDIT: Just to confirm, you're using PAL, correct?

    Well, I sincerely apologise for not clarifying certain points in the guide; I am currently working on this, and I hope a Wii U exploit comes out very soon so that you can gain homebrew again.
