Ok here's a good one: US wii with DMS chip, 3.1U firmware, original wiikey. Did shortwire install (my 9th one) and all looks good under a microscope. Originals read, backups do not. Upgraded wiikey to latest (1.9s or x or whatever the version is - the one with the three dudes see no evil, hear no evil, etc), upgrade tests good then writes good. Same results - can read originals, not backups. Problem now - cannot read upgrade 1.9, or any wiikey configs. Tried gcos 1.3, 1.4, etc, it spins, and when it should spin at a faster rpm, it spins down. Is this related to starting with firmware 3.1u? Strange part is, it could read the upgrade disc, and perform the upgrade. Help! My launch day wii is not working, so this additional purchased wii not working yet. All help is appreciated. Hobby-Boy.
