    [07-09-25] 1.9b Recovery Disc

    The recovery disc for wiikey 1.9b has been added to the Resources section. If the upgrade process is interrupted before reflashing is completed the wiikey chip will be left in an inoperable state where it cannot load GC/Wii discs. The Recovery disc can be used to restore its firmware.

    ------taken from wiikey.cn------------

    WOW get at the Wiikey team for taking time out of developing the damn new update to create recovery discs for all of us w/ Wiikey update 1.9b Wii's that have problems.


    Here's the Link to the resources page to get the recovery discs.

    Just wondering but is this all they have been working on???

    where is the wiikey firmware update? this is currently useless until they actually they release the firmware they promised ages ago.

    Its a shock to myself to see a update from them but I was more expecting the new setup disk or firmware update.

    Sorry if I missed the firmware update all that I know of is the leaked firmware which I dont want to use.

    What's interesting is the way it says it recovers in the readme.
    It automatically fixes after sitting there for 3 minutes... some sort of unknown booting/reading function of either the Wii or the Wiikey?

     | Performing the update                      Â|
    | --------------------- Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â|
    | Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â|
    | - Switch on Wii and eject any disc in drive           Â|
    | - Insert recovery disc and reset Wii               |
    | - Wait for at least 3 minutes. There will *not* be any sign that |
    | the wiikey is recovering, and the recovery disc will not appear Â|
    | in Wii menu. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â |
    | - Power off the Wii and switch it back on again. wiiKey should  |
    | now have recovered its firmware, and EEPROM will be restored to Â|
    | default settings. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â|

    I guess a sign of life is a good thing but this is pretty useless thus far...

    Anyone in the GBATemp community tried the leaked firmware update? Any news as to what it does? It must have been a while since I visited, I didn't even know the update disc had been leaked [​IMG]

    From what i could tell it was only the soundfix for the GC games.

    I tried playing Naruto GNT4,but the update put region free off.So it wont boot.

    I dont know if using GCOS would work.I need to buy some dvd-r's to test it out.

    GCOS does fix that, yes. makes everything regionfree.
    and the leaked update IS an official update that was distributed to testers, wiikey team has responded that it DOES contain ALL features they were planning to release, just no setup disc. So it's perfectly fine to use.

    I just saw a GBATemp news post that the leaked version has been confirmed stable. Does anyone know;

    Whether the 1.2b setup disc will work after an update?

    If the update is affected in anyway by the Wii's current firmware (can't imagine it would be?)

    If there is a confirmed safe download? It would be nice if someone could add it to the GBATemp downloads...
