    Would like to start a new thread to discuss any drawbacks people have experienced after updating the firmware on the Wii

    I have a Jap wii
    Wiikey 1.9s
    and Wii Firmware 2.0j

    Currently I can run about 35 or so games with no problems and was considering updating to 3.1j so that I can run Mario Kart and Super Mario Galaxy etc...which I believe require 3.1j firmware in order to run..

    I have been scouring the forums the past few days to try and see if this will be a wise move for me, as obviosly once I have done this it cannot be rolled back.

    Could anyone reading this who has done the same (i.e updated from an early version of wii firmware to an up to date one)

    List what they are running (wiikey and wii firmware)

    And any issues they have had after the wii firmware update.

    Or if anyone can tell me whether there will be no problems running my older games (backups and originals)

    Any advice would be appreciated [​IMG]

    1.9s and no problems [​IMG]

    There's only a problem with the GC audiofix which is now broken again (but it only happens on PAL consoles, if I remember correctly) but aside that, nothing much [​IMG]

    So even if I updated my wii to the latest version there is nothing that nintendo have implemented that will stop me running any of my games?
