Okay, so I'm at a stalemate, a standstill if you will, on what I should truly do given the circumstance the Wii U hacking state is in. So what we know so far is that we have a webkit exploit for system update 5.00 and 5.1.0, and as of 5.11 and above, that particular webkit bug has been patched. In order for 5.1.1+ to work, another exploit has to be found, as there are undoubtedly more bugs, so who knows if and when another exploit will be found in the webkit itself, it may be soon, a long time, or never. This leads me to the meat of the topic, do I update or do I await the entire exploit? With the advent of the recent MK 8 DLC and the ones coming up later this year for the extra courses, karts and characters, not to mention Super Smash Bros, which will likely contain a system update on the disc itself, it begs the question, is it worth waiting? Not to mention I've been approached by some friends of mine and they have inquired as why I haven't been online in a long time, which I admit, I find to be heart-wrenching. Why? Because by my holding out on updating and getting online, they think I'm ignoring them when that's not my intent at all, I simply cannot explain why I'm waiting without telling them why only to have them call me out for wanting to hack the console. It doesn't help me any that the wireless in my apartment is horrendously bad and super slow (I'll spare the details for now), so online isn't that stable for me on the Wii U anyways. On the other hand, there is also the Trinux method of loading homebrew and the eventuality of installing a hack that way as well. I guess what I'm trying to figure out is, do I wait for a true exploit which can spoof the system update and have access to online games and not disappoint friends who have certain expectations, or, do I simply update to 5.1.2 and have false hope of seeing another webkit bug exploit? At this point, I don't even know what I want to do anymore. I bet anything Smash Bros will require a system update for some lame reason, such is the nature of new Nintendo games. Disclaimer: I await good N64 and PS1 emulators, menu spoofing, region lock removal, that's it. I do NOT want to use Wii U backups and therefore don't care about ODE/ODDE devices.
