    I am pretty sure I have a wiikey clone which cannot be updated. I constantly get the check connection error and have tried everything on the major forums.

    I have tried to run SMG from Prominent and get the illegal device 001 # message and have updated with the patch on it.
    Question is I just preordered SMG NTSC US and was wondering if anyone could confirm if the original game would work on a unupdateable wii with a clone wiikey which has already updated with the patch from the SMG prominent release game.

    I believe some stores have released the game early so was hoping someone could confirm.

    In short, yes it will work.

    How about a picture of your modchip.

    I looked at a video of how to open it up and it seemed delicate in some parts where I would not want to risk anything by even trying

    The Wii isn't too delicate, just a bunch of small pieces (rubber paddings and buttons) make it seem more delicate than it is.

    If you can though, try and get a look at it. I believe most WiiKey clones can still be updated except maybe the absolute worst clones.

    Can you recommend any videos which show it the easiest way to open it?

    lol. That does not look very safe to do for a newb to do. I had a bad experience opening my PSP to mod the control pad for SF3 alpha max. If I ever meet someone that can open it and not charge I will do it then. Thanks for the help though.
