    I have:
    wiikey 1.9g
    used freeloader to boot, installed mario kart channel fine, but when I try to use it, it says "This channel can not be used" (or something close to that).
    Anyone in NA had any success?

    PAL channels can't work on NTSC wii !

    It's like duplicated channel : An update can install a PAL channel on a NTSC wii, but the channel will be unusable !

    Just wait a damn week !

    easy for you to say, you don't have to wait [​IMG]
    oh and GTAIV comes out two days after so some people might have to wait longer cause they can't afford both at the same time.

    It's a simple channel, it's fun but not really interesting [​IMG]

    You can play the game, just forget this channel for a while [​IMG]

    So all that happens is that we (NTSC-U) cannot use the MK channel?

    Thats right.....rightguard heh.


    You can still play all through gp, vs, battle mode, online, and have access to the same channel stuff, only within the game itself. The channels basically just a shortcut to stuff included on the online servers.

    I have a USA Wii, with a Wiikey 1.9(not with SMB update)

    I ran WiiFrii on the ISO ( I'd never used the program before ), and let it do it's thing.

    I ran the ISO, System Update popped up for me ( I *have* done the SSBM update ), let the update go..it failed at 50%. I ran it again, it was successful.

    The game is running fine.

    I don't worry about duplicate channels, couldn't even tell you if i have them.

    ntsc regionwait for mario kart wii is nothing compared to the notorious wait times for pal region to their games to get released in their region. enjoy mario kart wii pal region ! [​IMG]

    Smash Bros. Brawl not expected in Europe until Q3 '08
    http://www.joystiq.com/2007/12/06/smash-br...pe-until-q3-08/
