    First of all, hello to everybody! I am new here but I am not new to the website and these guides have gotten me so far. Anyway, back to the subject. I am buying a Wii U this week in hopes to run Loadiine. Now. Can you install loadiine upon starting the wii u up for the first time? Like, without updating it. Or is absolutely necessary to update the wii as soon as you start it up? Also, which Wii U bundle has the best firmware currently for Loadiine? I dont want to buy a brand new Wii U and have to update it past the required firmware for loadiine. If that's the case, ill just get the 3DS. Thanks!

    You do not want to update your wii u at all. Do not connect it to the internet, or it will auto update itself. Read the stickies at the top of the thread.

    To add a caviat to that, you should check what firmware your consoles comes with. If it has an ancient firmware, then you might want to upgrade to 5.3.2.

    However, upgrade using a game - NOT from the internet.
