    Wait and see. They aren't going to explicitly say whether it does or not.

    "We would also like to point out that making the upgrade incompatible with clones have not caused any delays in the process."

    Sounds to me like.

    "This update is incompatible with clones and despite what every man and his dog have been saying on forums, making it incompatible was not the reason for the delay".

    The only feature I've heard so far is the GCOS that plays DVD R9s. The clones are exactly the same as the original wiikeys. No way they can brick them.

    And they didnt say they were going to brick them they just said it was incompatible, although bricking it might be a side effect [​IMG]

    I doubt it, they already said they weren't planning on bricking people's systems.

    It shouldn't cause trouble as it only edits the data in the EEPROM.

    As for the firmware update, presumably it will add improved import support, GC Audiofix, DVD9 support, and possibly not work for all clones. If we are lucky maybe it will improve disc detection as well (for those cheapskates who use garbage media). I can't imagine what else it could possibly do.

    I would hope so, right now the WiiFree is more compatible and capable than the WiiKey, so the update had better add some functionality!

    So you're saying other mod chips are able to play Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX?

    Just another question: With the update coming up, I was wondering if they work on the wiikey clones? i.e. are the clones updatable?
