    I heard some JPN games upgrade your firmware. How does Wiikey handles this?

    Will you still be able to play original/backup NTSC games once your NTSC Wii console is upgraded with JPN firmware?

    The Wii updates do not prevent you from playing backups... well, at the moment.
    But I don't think they will be able to disable the modchips with just an update.

    I just updated using Pokemon/SSX blur right after eachother.


    Wii still works/still plays backups

    Glad to hear that [​IMG] But I wonder what would happen if I tried updating my US-Wii using a PAL-game...

    Has anyone dared to try this? I'm thinking that would trick the machine into thinking that it's European and not American.
