    I just bought a Key-Clip, but I learned from the Wiikey2 thread that the current Wiikey firmware has a number of flaws... Do you think I should go with OpenWii instead?

    I mostly care about the 6x speed not working... Does it cause slowdown in games?

    I would go openwii and then flash YAOSM to it.

    How do you do that with a Key-Clip?

    Well? Are you sure YAOSM works with Atmega chips?

    No YAOSM doesn't work with an ATmega. Non the less, he should go with YAOSM. It's the best chip out there for the old Wii drives...

    (btw. OpenWii doesn't work on a key clip and is worse than the wiikey firmware)

    Dunno about the keyclip, but OpenWii is leaps and bounds ahead of Wiikey. Get your shit straight, son.

    No it isn't, it's disc-detection is horrible and allways was. Just because it seems to have all the features other chips have doesn't make it a good chip. When it doesn't read your disc that features are worth exactly nothing.

    Thanks for your barefaced and opinionated lies.

    Tested it myself, have read it a few times from people that tested it, that's enough evidence for me. Even Chiip has a better disc-detection (though it has numerous other drawbacks, ofcourse)
    Anywho it doesn't really matter if you believe me. If someone asks a question I give advise, if he takes it or anybody else for that matter seriously is none of my concern.
