    I was 1 of the people receiving a "check connections" error while updating the wiikey, so I called the guy who originaly put in my wiikey to see if he could check the soldering. ( btw I am 100 percent sure it is no clone because it was put in thefirst week the wiikey was even released, no clones back then ). He opened it up and said: Oh, you have one of the old wiikeys, they have an IC chip on them. He put in a new one ( for free ) and it all works like a charm now, but still I think what he said is a litle weird. i've never heard anything about old wiikey's having different kind of chips on em. It's all atmega8 right.

    Or am I wrong.

    afaik there were clones before the original wiikey was released.. so could've been a clone if that's true but glad it's working now [​IMG] AFAIK all real wiikeys were identical and still haven't changed one bit..

    Nah probably leaked sourcecodes and stuff. Just like the leaked update before it was released etc. Could've happened, some ppl keep sayin that it did, not sure if it's true.
