    on a 3.0 firmware Wii ? I think I'll have the chip installed a few weeks later[I don't have money =[ ] but I want to update my Wii first. I still have the oldest firmware, and even News and Forecast channels don't work.

    So did anyone try this ?

    EDIT: Sorry for the stupid grammar error on the title [​IMG]

    If you are buying a clone wait to upgrade. (or see this thread:3.0 + WiiKey Clone work around)
    If you are buying an original they will come pre-configured so all you will have to do is run GCOS first, then your WiiKey Config 1.2. Then you can play your backups / originals no problem.

    yeah update your firmware, the wiikey works with 3.0
    only seems to be more picky about the media your using....
    and you need to use a modified update cd.. but if you plan to update you'll prob also need those things to...

    Well, people say that the WiiKey disk WILL NOT WORK with the new update. So as of now, there is no way to install a wiikey on an updated system.

    Crap! :'( Is there a way to remove the update without losing all my VC games etc? I was thinking of buying a WiiKey but now looks like I can't... [​IMG] Will Wiid or Wiinja still work?

    Not true, and if it was true all you have to do is use GCOS or the new bootable config discs.
