    Anybody tried to update to the latest Wii U firmware while having the hombrew channel and CIOS installed on their vWii? The only info Nintendo gave us is: Further improvements to overall system stability and software compatibility

    I'm on 4.0.3 and vWii is unaffected :P But you might want to hear what others say about it just to make sure.

    Edit: Okay, I didn't even realize this was the newest...d'oh!

    Apparently only one game uses IOS59: Dragon Quest X. Not sure why Nintendo wants to update this IOS.

    No doubt, give us the freaking game first, then we'll worry about the update.

    Daddy needs his Dragon Quest fix.

    Nintendo clearly found out before the hacking scene did that IOS59 was the backdoor needed for full WiiU-mode hax, and wanted to patch it before the Bad Mans could use it.

    So...how do I go about turning my console on without it automatically updating? I'm pretty sure I disabled auto updating.... My guess would be to disconnect my router temporarily.

    No wait, I did turn it on this evening, but didn't prompt me for an update.

    Unless a Dragon Quest X update was coming that required a revision to the IOS to make certain things work, it's pretty likely that it's a vulnerability patch. Whether it's a vulnerability that was publicly disclosed or discovered is irrelevant.

    Okay, I know which cable is for the router, I just unplug it, turn on the Wii U and it'll tell me it can't connect, so from there I just disable the internet/WiFi for the Wii U in the internet settings, viola. Oddly enough, when I booted it up yesterday evening, I didn't even see the prompt or the message reminding me there was an update. I don't have a LAN adapter so I have to temporarily unplug an Ethernet cable.



    The timing is almost too perfect with the announcement.

    They added USB keyboard support from the notes I saw.

    One more thing you dont need the gamepad for now, text entry.

    Still need it for the eshop and system settigs, but this makes typing way more convenient.

    Yeah, I couldn't avoid it, I unplugged the cable for the router (Google Fiber's) and the damn thing still updated much to my chagrin. The update doesn't make sense since it only updates an IOS for a game that's not even in the US. Shit, balls, damn and crap. :rolleyes: At least it was super quick, like, less than a minute.

    No joke, that was the one modified to allow vWii to play on gamepad screen, right? I received a few private messages saying an ios was the key, was it ios59? I think I told a few people about those whispers. It was definitely an ios from vWii side.

    And it would seem many people had a forced-update, including people like Maxternal. Ugh. I'm sure there will be a way to downgrade someday...
