    Hey everyone.

    I know we have been told we can update to 5.5.1 if we are on 5.5.0

    But is this really a good idea? We have no idea what happens next time nintendo does an update.
    Couldn't the browser get blocked? and it says we need to update before using the browser?

    Please don't start trouble in the replies. I see this as a valid question.
    If you think the question is stupid then please just don't post a reply.

    No it isn't. Think at least a little bit first.

    Yes it is safe to update from 5.5 to 5.5.1. Only change was an exploit fix in the browser that didn't even work:rofl:. I am on 5.5.1 using SD Cafiine and Loadiine with the new kernel exploit. So yea update.

    They would have to push another update making 5.5.1 irrelevant, how at all is this question decent?

    Did you read the question?

    I asked if it was safe. I did say the reason why i wasn't sure.
    What if an update gets pushed. Then everyone on 5.5.1 is locked out of the browser unless they update?

    The update there now is 5.5.1. If you update now that's what you will go to. In order for anything to be blocked they would need to release a new update. Making 5.5.1 irrelevant.

    @OP,

    It has been confirmed countless numbers of times from the "devs". There is absolutely no advantage to stay on 5.5.0.

    You are safe and encouraged to update to 5.5.1 before Nintendo spits out another update.

    Update to 5.5.1 and then block updates.

    Yes i know that.
    But how do we know that nintendo didn't take any precautions.
    If they released an update next week, how do we know that 5.5.1 wouldn't block the browser access when it detects the system is not on the newest firmware?

    Do you have a link to something they have stated? where they say it is safe?

    Well i don't keep upto date with the Wii U scene much. So i'm not sure exactly what has been said.
    I just thought it would be good to ask as i couldn't find any great sources saying it was safe to update.

    Thats where my problem is. I have seen posts like that.
    But it doesn't exactly mean it is safe.
    How do the devs know that the browser access wont be blocked when a new update comes out?

    Almost every thread about this exploit says it works on 5.5.x and has numerous replies saying that it works. Next time I would use the search function to quickly find an answer :)
    It can get rather annoying to seem the same topics made hundreds of time when the answers are already here....

    Read the question. I never asked if it works on 5.5.x at all. I asked if it was safe as i was unsure if the browser access would be locked on 5.5.1 if a new update was pushed.

    It can also get annoying you people give you a reply when they clearly have not read the question.
