1. Have a US launch NTSC Wii with 3.1 US firmware
2. Getting Wiikey modchip installed tomorrow
3. Modchip alone does nothing, thats why I burned the Wiikey 1.9 Firmware update(filechopped) on a DVD-R
4. Put that in Wii, it recognizes it and it updates wiikey firmware
5. Region override on wiikey by default is off, so thats why I have a Wiikey Config 1.3 disk(filechopped and made into a GCOS) burned on DVD-R
6.Put that in Wii, it recognizes and from there i turn region override on, save, and reboot.
7. I have Smash burned on a DVD+R DL
and from there it should be able to work fine(with dual channels after I go through with the update off the disk but I dont care bout that)

This is correct, right?

Only thing I'm questioning or unsure about is if the wiikey 1.9 firmware update had to be made into a GCOS like the config disk...? Does it?

It didn't HAVE to be GCOS'd, but it's fine, it's still works, just need to go through GCOS first.

And yep, that all sounds right!

ok thanks, and this "just need to go through GCOS first." is referring to the config disk right?

So after getting the Wiikey soldered in, the only discs i need to use to play smash are the 1.9 update disk and config disk, right?
