Again want to verify... Has an Update File been downloaded to a Que and so will try to Update every so often even tho I have re blocked my DNS's?

Uhhgg! Its been so long since I did any of the Wii Hacking I don't remember how to even go about doing what you suggested. Care to refresh my memory?

Uh Never mind I looked it up and would rather just DNS it for now... I dont buy from store, nor do I play online.

I have everything I want on my WiiU anyway... I'm thinking I should delete my Inet Connection all together! ???
If you aren't playing online, then I don't see much of a need for an internet connection on the Wii U.

Here's a guide for proper update-blocking:

Thats not what im specifically asking... My WiiU booted up asking to install an update! I quickly turned if off. Now what I am asking is: Does the WiiU Cache those updates in the NAND so even tho I have now blocked DNS &/or disconnected from Inet completely, Could they potentially try to install again. Other family members may unwittingly do it without my knowledge. Someone that knows exactly how the wii works please answer.

if it asked to install an update, it's probably already installed it by now. you should get a red x and an error with system update otherwise. this will happen even if there's no update. it would only say there was an update if it had already downloaded it.

My kids updated one of our consoles today, I assume to 5.5.5, no problem, cbhc still works. Our other wii u is blocked against updates.

Our switch is blocked in the router (mac block), dns, incognito, whatever, but I'm a bit sloppy with the kids wii u it seems. I backup game saves often though.

Edit: I should check later to see if this really is 5.5.5E and not 5.5.4E.

You can tell with Mocha. Cbhc will show 99.99.99.

"Accidentially" is the Magic Word.:evil:
But I think Wii U Users are a little smarter than many Switch Users.:P

The only "Issue" that maybe can happen and I can imagine is to update from an (very) lower Version as 5.5.3x maybe...View attachment 249535
I take offense to that. I have a lot of outdated switches. I never update until daddy SciresM says it's okay. Though that's just on one switch though.
