    On several fora it turns up that more and more people are having serious problems while they were using 1.9g firmware. Now what is true about this?

    See: http://wiikey19g.wordpress.com/

    Since the 1.9g BETA hotfix was primarily ment for playing SMG - and we can patch SMG ourselves now to play it on 1.9b firmware - the 1.9g firmware isn't needed anymore.

    Should we go back to 1.9b which was 'safe'? Just to be sure?

    A few minutes ago I downgraded to 1.9b again with my 1.9b update disk. Works fine now. All games work fine, also my ntsc to pal patched games... only SMG doesn't work anymore: 001 error. Good. Just have to patch that one myself and burn it again so it will work on 1.9b.

    All WiiKey disks and updates:

    Not sure what is 'best' but I have personally gone back to 1.9b since i found out 1.9g locked the drive at 3x reed speed

    uhm, is it true that it is locked @ 3x read speed?
    isn't that changed by the config disc (which i've done)
    so ... you say that 1.9G ONLY reads @ 3x, even tho that you've changed the option?

    That's the whole point... 1.9g was a beta hotfix... working fine... no problems at all...
    However... a lot of people did get problems because of it.

    So I think downgraded to 1.9b again.

    If you now have 1.9g you can just flash back to 1.9b by using the 1.9b update disk from Wiikey, that was their last official release.

    So far as I know, only SMG won't work anymore if that's what you used the 1.9g for... you can patch SMG so it works on 1.9b again.

    That was tested and didn't show any difference. Offtopic however.

    oops missed that, hope it's no huge issue, seems like lots of the problems have to do with wiikey clones or dvd+rs or +rw, I don't know maybe they used ghetto solder or perhaps the spirit of Gunpei Yokoi is reaping havoc on your tainted system

    Hmmmm. I think my WiiKey clone with 1.9g is close to becoming self-aware like good old Skynet. Dangar! Dangar!

    The thread is dead on psx-scene since they lost everything. Don't try and revive it here.
