    When I try to update my wiikey, after the test I have this message: "Please check your connections and try again"
    Why?

    well that's a bit easy isn't it [​IMG] just like saying
    " i'm eating this food and it is sour! why? "

    anyway, probably a badly installed wiikey (update lead not instlaled) or a noncompatible clone (fuses wrong or whatever it was that causes that)

    Found on other forum:

    I did that also, and i thought the only way to check if it really is updated is to insert setup disc 1.2 to checkif it can be read again or isn't this working?

    If that isn't working how can i check if i really have the update installed?

    Nope it won't.
    That disc remove method is false hope i guess.
    Because wii is update to version 3.0 i'm unable to read setup disc now, so imo the updated failed [​IMG]

    yes that ejecting disc doesnt work.
    if the update wont work you most likely got a clone.
    i replaced my clone with a real wiikey and the updater worked fine [​IMG]

    Well i'm sure i have a genuine wiikey (was at modder's place when chips arrived).
    I guess i need to bring wii back to him to check soldering's on chip [​IMG]

    I would say its got nothing to do with being a clone - the update wire of the wiikey obviously is just loose!

    and what is supposed to be the update wire? I soldered over 50 wiikeys and its strange that only the clones i got wont update to the new firmware. but when i solder a real wiikey on the same dvd drive the update works fine.

    Wow, that's interesting. Did WiiKey find a way to kill the clones?

    Funny when pirates get concerned about other pirates. [​IMG]
