Hey guys!
I just came back to the Wii U scene because a friend of me wants me to hack his console. His Wii U is on 5.5.1 and I want to install haxchi. For that I need a legit DS game. Do I need to update to 5.5.4 and is there any downside of it? Or can I somehow spoof from 5.5.1 to 5.5.4? Is haxchi stable? I didn’t touch the Wii U scene for about two years and I have only used the browser exploit yet. Thanks in advance :)

You have two options:
  1. Update to 5.5.4
  2. Run NNU-Patcher to enter the eShop while on 5.5.1
It doesn't matter which one you do. Haxchi is stable, and it's recommended if you don't want to use the internet browser each time you want to enter CFW.

Do you know if anyone has been banned for CFW or hacks yet? Is it possible to make a clean NAND backup and does that even matter? If the Wii U would brick, I would need a hardmode to restore the NAND backup right?

I don't think anyone has been banned on the Wii U for anything other than cheating online. A clean NAND backup doesn't matter.

That being said, you do want a NAND backup in case you brick. Depending on the kind of brick, you might require a hardmod to restore the NAND backup, but that's better than nothing.

Is there any disadvantage if I upgrade to 5.5.4 from 5.5.1?

    I want a 120hz 4k tv but crazy how more expensive the 120hz over the 60hz are. Or even more crazy is the price of 8k's.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    No real point since movies are 30fps
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Not a big movie buff, more of a gamer tbh. And Series X is 120hz 8k ready, but yea only 120hz 4k games out right now, but thinking of in the future.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Mostly why you never see TV manufacturers going post 60hz
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I only watch tv when i goto bed, it puts me to sleep, and I have a nas drive filled w my fav shows so i can watch them in order, commercial free. I usually watch Married w Children, or South Park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Stremio ruined my need for nas
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I stream from Nas to firestick, one on every tv, and use Kodi. I'm happy w it, plays everything. (I pirate/torrent shows/movies on pc, and put on nas)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What the hell is Kodi reposts? what do you mean, or "Wut?" -xdqwerty
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Google them basically web crawlers to movie sites
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    oh you mean the 3rd party apps on Kodi, yea i know what you mean, yea there are still a few cool ones, in fact watched the new planet of the apes movie other night w wifey thru one, was good pic surprisingly, not a cam
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Damn, only $2.06 and free shipping. Gotta cost more for them to ship than $2.06
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I got my Dad a firestick for Xmas and showed him those 3rd party sites on Kodi, he loves it, all he watches anymore. He said he has got 3 letters from AT&T already about pirating, but he says f them, let them shut my internet off (He wants out of his AT&T contract anyways)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's where stremio comes to play never got a letter about it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I just use a VPN, even give him my login and password so can use it also, and he refuses, he's funny.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I had to find and get him an old style flip phone even without text, cause thats what he wanted. No text, no internet, only phone calls. Old, old school.
