    Hey everyone - I have to get back to a rehearsal, but the short of it:

    I have a modded Wii (bought it in early June) with a Wiikey, and the 1.9g update - whatever the newest one is.

    I obtained the DVD5 NTSC-J version of Brawl a month ago and burned it, sans brickblocker, and got dual channels. Otherwise, Wii behaved fine.

    I bought NTSC-U Brawl last night, and as mentioned, the legit version is not recognized by the Wiikey.

    I ripped it using Friidump (the newest version) using the standard setting - something like friidump -d f: a or whatever it iis.

    I burned the .iso file using Imgburn at 2.4x onto an HP DVD+R Double Layer DVD. I didn't use the brick blocker or anything.

    I just popped it into my Wii, and it works fine. I haven't played any of the modes or anything yet, but it booted okay and I navigated some menus. I see no reason why it would freeze anywhere else.

    In summary:
    - Wiikey w/ 1.9g update
    - DVD5 of Brawl was used previously, update was allowed to completion, dual channels as result.
    - Bought NTSC-U.
    - Ripped using Friidump and -d f: a setting (The one it gives an example of, I just changed my drive letter to F) using the LG Drive that can rip games.
    - Burned to HP DVD+R DL at 2.4x.
    - Put it into the Wii, didn't try to update, seemed to work just fine.

    That's all I've got right now. I hope this helps a bunch of you out - thanks guys!

    So if it was that easy, why no Scene release yet?

    I hope it will work on PAL without the update and without the errors, because I have only one DL disc and it's waiting for Brawl, and DL discs cost ALOT in Israel

    Eeeeh, upload speed? You know that 9 GB needs to be compressed + uploaded before you can call it a scene release.

    The scene slipped on this one. They probably have problems uploading it or something.

    It's starting to look like there's really nothing Nintendo can do anymore to detect modchips. Otherwise they would definitely have implemented it in this big release.

    The duplicated channels are only for the Japanese version. Even then its possible to go without having them.

    This topic is for the NTSC-U version. You will not get duplicated channels, if your wii is bought in North America.

    hold the phone....so basically you're saying that trucha-signer is completely unnecessary in order for the game to work? if that's the case then i'm just really surprised that Nintendo didn't implement any security features like they did with SMG.

    My wii is european (as i am).

    Back then, there was a trick to avoid duplicated channels with SMG NTSC-U. It involved burning two copies of the game but it worked like a charm.

    I'm hoping for something like that with this game.

    well the thing is that i'm almost 100% certain that i saw a thread on these boards for a tutorial on how to Trucha-sign an SMG iso in order to bypass chip detection...unless i was seeing things, but since i don't do drugs that shouldn't be the case [​IMG]

    I must have gotten the special un-protected version [​IMG]

    Ie: Pre-sale demo version which in normal wii's (not a retail outlet demo wii) is the full game.

    Or i could have gotten an allready trucha'ed version.

    But lets get back to the subject shall we?

    Has anyone else tried to do what Jenacis did with the NTSC-U version of SMBB?

    No you had the latest update for wiikey 1.9g so there is no need to use Trucha-sign

    The scene is probably working on it, and we should see an upload in the next couple hours.
    (compressing takes a looooong time at 7-8Gb)
    That or they are busy playing and enjoying the game while we commit seppuku with a broomstick.
