    Yeah, I'm one of the horde that ran out and bought the legit SSBB and I get a "error reading disc" when trying to run it.

    Yeah, I've been reading all the threads about a) wait for the wiikey team ( unlikely ) or b) install a switch ( i'm not gonna do that.)

    Anyone know if it's possible to flash the Wiikey with another chip that works firmware? i.e., convert the Wiikey to a Wiinja ?

    Supposedly someone on Wiinewz says if you flash with 1.9g and pull the power at 75% it works fine. Then you boot the Wiikey firmware disc again to fix it. Perform at your own risk.

    If a switch is out this may not be of much use but it is here for others, wiikey to openwii:

    AMPonzi's "technique" is probably the best thing you can do other than wait for a dump of the iso and the eventual decryption.
