    Nintendo has recently copy protected some of it's major games, SMG for example. I have a Cyclowiz chip, but unfortunately without an update switch, so I'm stuck on v2 (v1 I'm not sure). So I got some questions:

    1.Is this copy protection on all region discs? (PAL, JAP and NTSC)?
    2.Will the original SMG disc work?
    3.Can I somehow bypass the copy protection without updating the chip?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe an original disc should work.
    The protection cannot detect the modchip itself, but it can only detect if the disc is a copy.

    Here is how Bell, creator of YAOSM describes how the new protection scheme works, and how he fixed it in his modchip code. This also makes sense of why an original SMG disk works fine even when a modchip was present:

    Oh. Im sorry. I thought that the disc excuting unsigned code that read beyond the normal limit of DVDs. I was close.
