-Update-
Modders have worked around the firmware! I'm not going to go into details, because other people already have on this site. CoolSonicFan made a post about it here. If you need a video tutorial/explanation I recommend checking out Aarontimar's video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8GQeSB02ls

I just want to bring this to your attention. This is huge and will really hurt modding. Nintendo just released Firmware 5.5.2. This means loadiine.ovh will not work. Mods will not work until modders find a way past this. I'm bringing this to your attention because it might damage your system if you try to run Cafiine or SdCafiine or any browserhax. Be careful.

    Yeah my Wii U auto-updated. You say mods will not work. Don't you mean mods will not load? For a second you made me think that every single mod has to be remade.

    When I opened up Loadiine on my console, the site said it detected my firmware as .1 still, so I've gone ahead and disconnected it-- if the DNS is changed and the console doesn't receive the update from Nintendo, will my Smash4 mods still load through SDCafiine?
    Peachy!
