    So... My friend have a Wii and Wiikey 1 in 1.9g firmware. We wanted to softmod it but we would need to do a Wii system update for that. (The Wii firmware is between 3.0 and 3.3 if I remember right) Does the Wiikey work in latest firmware? What about if I update the Wiikey to the latest 1.99 beta version?

    Yes, the Wiikey will continue to work on 4.3 (the latest version). You will lose the Wiikey's native region-free ability, but you can put it back using options such as Priiloader hacks.

    Thanks I've already updated wiikey to latest firmware (after some heavy searching on google for the update files) and now I updated my friend's Wii. Everything is working like a charm! Thanks for the help! :lol:
