    Does it allow me to still play online? I already purchased brain age ds VC for haxchii.

    Gambia, The
    Have a look at loadiine.ovh.
    There you can see 3 DNS. You can choose 2 of them with the best ping.

    So I just installed ColdBoothax already :D. Does that mean that when there is a Wii U update I could update as it automatically boots into homebrew, or fw.img or custom firmware?

    If you installed cooldboothax, a wii u update would be even more dangerous. It would brick your console right now.

    Is it like a 3ds where if you have emuNAND you could only update the emunand but not the sysnand?

    So I used the DNS from loadiine.ova site. I used the LA DNS as primary and the DNS-U as secondary. Then I did a connection test and it was successful. I am guessing that I blocked updates?

    Yes, you should be safe now. But I dont assume any liability for that.
    Nintendo did not release any update yet, since these DNS servers are online.

    The $6.99 for Brain Age... Worth it for hacks.
