Purchased Zelda BOTW Disc and DLC Wii U - Will installation of DLC force an update that kills loadiine?

My friend has a switch and the purchased version of BOTW running on it.  He bought the DLC and it forced him to update.  So, he went and stocked up on arrows ans such as fear of those exploits going away with an update.  I have a Wii U and purchased BOTW and plan on buying the DLC.  I've heard the Wii U firmware will NOT ever be updated again.  When I bought BOTW, I switched off my proxy DNS server to get the game itself updated, then just turned the proxies back on to block.  Game worked perfect and all my mods are running great. No problems.  I just want to make sure the DLC doesn't force some sort of update on my Wii U that blasts all my mods...I'm running VWii and Loadiine and don't want to lose all that capability.  Thanks in advanced for any help / info on this.

It shouldn't.  However, if you're using the trainer for BOTW it won't work with the new update as of now.  The guy behind it has previously said he wasn't going to continue the project through future updates.  So if you're fine with that then update away.  That is my experience anyways.  I updated the game and still have the backdoor access to the Wii U that I previously had.  It didn't update the firmware or anything like that.

Thanks for the reply.  I'm not using a trainer...never heard of it.  Just some of the arrow collecting exploits that they phased out after the first patch.  There was another one so my friend topped up to 999 using the existing exploit before he patched BOTW.  Looks like i'll be good to go.  I figured they wouldn't update the WII U firmware ever again but it's worth worrying about just a bit in order to protect the massive mods I've applied.  It's still a great little unit for vWii homebrew and, obviously, loadinne content. I don't want to lose any of that. I'd sooner just buy the Switch before the new Mario comes out versus risking losing all I've put into mod'ing my Wii U ;)
