    I'd try it, but I'll wait until there is an update for the Wiikey. No use risking anything if I know the game won't work right?
    Think I'll wait this time to actually buy this game [​IMG]
    It's so much nicer to actually have a booklet and stuff, even driving home with that box is way more fun than watching some progress bars..But the temptation is big with this title [​IMG]
    BTW I was one of the first here on GBAtemp to try the MP3 trick back then, no one would believe me..

    This is great news! Now the lazy Wiikey team just have to give everyone their not-yet-finished update [​IMG]

    I want to try this trick too, but how do you know when to turn of the Wii? Is it maybe possible for someone to post a screen shot or an example of where the progress bar approximately has to be?

    That doesn't surprise me at all. It looks like you're quite new here, and turning a Wii off while updating sounds very risky.

    Then again we could also wait another two weeks and have no problem at all.

    No you still have to do the 10% trick with the SMG disk as it asks you for an update when you put the sik in even if you did teh trick previously with MP3, otherwise iIf you leave it updating all the way you will get duplicate channels.

    you'll get duplicate channels which most peeps are calling semi-bricked, although everything will still work.

    can't you just hide the extra channels on the 2nd or 3rd page?

    The 10-15% trick works a treat, all I did was count 15 seconds (similar to MP3), no dupe channels and all perfect, SMG rocks! by far the best looking Wii game to date.
