    Hey guys bought this last night and from what I have read I should have done more research as everthing is still private for this firmware? [MENTION=3657]pinky[/MENTION] any advice. I'm not worried about it though I buy a game system to play games being able to brew and other stuff is just a bonus. Just curious if you had any insight buddy. Thanks

    hackers have been working on an exploit for 5.5.0/1, but nothing has been released. the golden firmware for the wii-u is 5.3.2, but u can also play backups/homebrew with 5.4.0. if u want to play backups/homebrew, I'd advise selling the unit and buying an older bundle. btw, I believe splatoon has the 5.3.2 update, so if u buy a first gen unit like the zombii-u bundle, u can just use that game to update, then sell it. I hope that's helpful. :)

    edit: copied from gbatemp, but here's the list of games with 5.3.2 on them:

    USA:
    Splatoon
    Mario Party 10
    LEGO Jurassic World
    Yoshi's Woolly World


    EUR:
    Splatoon
    Mario Party 10
    LEGO Jurassic World
    Yoshi's Woolly World
    Shovel Knight
    Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush
    Legend of Kay Anniversary​

    Better check the database before you buy a WiiU bundle here
    Just bought a Xenoblade Chronicles X bundle [EU] (latest entry in database) had FW 5.4.0 on it, so loadiine works fine on that.

    I bought a use Wii U from a pawn shop down the street from where I stay
    and I got lucky when I was looking at the Firmware Versions coming a cross (Version 5.0.0 U)
    and On top of that it was Under $100 bucks :)
    But when I got home and Box back up My OG Wii and Unbox the Wii U and got everything ready
    The damn Wii U Had parental lock on it :(
    So I called up Nintendo and I told them I just pick up this Wii U from a pawn shop
    And I'm lock out of doing anything with it,
    So they ask for the Inquiry Number,
    And they gave me the master key :)

    And Now The Wii U is still on 5.0.0 U
    With a Hack vWii with in it :)

    So from there I Open up the The Master Key Logs

    Wii U - Master Key Logs
    No't knowing if it can be any Help to anyone but Keeping a Log May Shed some light on it?
