It's kind of a long story so i'll make it berief.. I bought my wii about six monthes ago in US, ntsc version of course. It has the D2C board, but fortunately the d2ckey came out at the about same time, and so I was one of the firsts that chipped his wii with this chip, I didnt do it myself, I paid for it. I got my wii back a day after but then I discovered that it got bricked and somehow a Pal firmware was now installed on it. I counldnt get inside the Settings menu and I was able to run mostly pal versions of games. I couldnt fix this issue for quite some time, and I tried serveral techniques but none worked, Until recently... I dont know why I did it or what it did, I only tried to flash an Update disc of wiikey which of course didnt work but it has unbricked my wii! I now have Pal firmware that works the only problems are: 1. whenever a new pal game that out that contains an update on it, it duplicates the channels. 2.whenever it try to load Nintendo games (such as SMG or WII family ski) I get an "Error 001 unauthorized device has been detected". its like they inserts in their games some kind of protection or I dont know what that discover that I have PAL firmware on an ntsc device. to all of the skeptics- the store gave me back the same wii, I checked it up and It got d2ckey and its indeed ntsc, I know the whole story is wierd but its true and that's really sucks that I cant play SMG, I whould appreciate if any of you got some ideas how can I sort these issues. thanks alot.
