    Hi,

    Understanding that signing a wii ISO's becomes a reality.... how about patching games so that we don't need the bad 1.9g wiikey firmware upgrade..... can it be done?

    Since the 1.9g firmware more and more wiikey owners complain about the wiikey stops working.
    Only original games work but backups don't.

    Look on wiinewz.com and also other forums.

    and off course some will reply that
    - only fake Wiikey suffer
    - bad installs are the cause

    but even 'professional' modders see returns of wiikeys with 1.9g firmware

    My WiiKey is a clone and I updated to 1.9G without a problem and originals and backups works fine and SMG and Brawl works so I don't get the point.

    *sigh*... if you don't see the point ....well..... you don't see it...... I only hope your clone wiikey will fail so that you DO see it ...... [​IMG]

    Why do people don't see a problem as long it isn't theirs......

    Because it isn't our problem?

    There are loads of people who do not know how to take care of their wii either, maybe their laser lifespan just started to give up around the time 1.9g was released.

    Anyway, I do know the stories, and I was afraid at first as well, but I couldn't keep myself from running Brawl the second it was available [​IMG]

    I have an original wiikey, and a clone.

    Both were updated the day the firmware was released.

    Haven't had any problems at all.

    I'm going to have to agree with Rammoth, the problems probably have nothing to do with the update.

    Why on Earth would you get a clone?

    Ive got a clone in one wii and original in another wii. I only installed the clone because i got it free when i ordered some parts, so i thought, let me try it.

    So far, both have run fun, play everything they should play, both updated to 1.9g and not had any issues with either.

    I wouldnt think twice about ordering a clone next time i need one. Both my machines were launch machines, both running fine, both even play SSBB on TDK DVD+RDL discs.

    Errors are down to discs and burning factors.

    I ordered it from Divineo before they admitted they were selling clones. [​IMG]

    Had I have known it was a clone, I wouldn't have bought it.

    Seems like no-one on here has had any problems with 1.9g, myself included, and so these issues seem exaggerated to me..

    Nice of you, real class act.

    A firmware update wouldn't cause a Wiikey to cease to function. The likelihood is that the vast majority of people have updated to 1.9g so a fair failure rate comparison can not be made.

    Had they not upgraded, their Wiikey would have failed in the same manner regardless.

    Hardware is fallible, it happens.
