    I am a PAL user who previously did the 15% MP3 trick.

    I first tried running SMG on a brick-blocked version of the game WITHOUT doing the 15% trick for SMG, but it didn't work. I had to burn a non-brick-blocked version of SMG and do the 15% trick with it before the brick-blocked SMG would work.

    has anyone else had this problem?

    i played through the first bit of the game, i get to the part with the first planet. i beat the egg thing boss, and when i go back to the planet for the 2nd star, the game freezes on a white screen..

    well i finally got around to burning SMG and testing it on my wii.. 2.2U wii firmware and wiikey(ORIGINAL, not a clone) w/ 1.9g on it........ was kinda happy to see that it worked and started updating, went back upstairs to my computer while it updated, after a few minutes i went back downstairs and noticed that the update was stuck at 15%... so i just powered it down and turned it back on, booted up and it no longer needed to update, looks like the PAL update trick works on US NTSC wii's as well lol for no real reason since i wouldnt have gotten dupe channels anyway.

    just wanted to post that. my wiimote batteries crapped out otherwise i'd check to see if it still shows up as 2.2U or if it shows 3.1 in the wii settings

    Add me to the list of successful upgrades.

    NTSC (USA) Wii with WiiKey. No previous WiiKey updates or firmware - original one sent on chip. Wii had latest Nintendo update 3.1.

    * Burned ISO using Nero. But can see why some people are confused at this step - seems to default to CD burn - simply switch back to DVD and burn.

    * Put in DVD in Wii. Stare at woman's nice ass. Then click A - it did Test of firmware. Then I clicked Reset - it installed firmware. Ended so I reset it again.

    * Put in Mario Galaxy - waited for auto window to show, nothing so clicked on box (one on main screen of Wii in up left). Immediately shown a Nintendo "update", clicked ok, updated, rebooted again when done - Super Mario Galaxy showed up in previous window.

    * Play!!! [​IMG]

    NTSC USA Wii.
    Authentic Wiikey.
    Updated straight from 1.2 to 1.9g.
    Burned SMG unpatched.
    Works perfectly. Runs incredibly smooth, no errors or long load times.

    I am satisfied! [​IMG]

    So what is the story on using the update with chips that may be cloned?

    Mine is genuine, but I am not sure if I can say the same thing for a few of my friends...

    Run the 1.3 config disc and turn off region override. Then try the SMG disc again. When you click on the disc channel this time it should prompt you for the update.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to downgrade back to 1.9b?

    The reason being, is that after I upgraded to 1.9g, my setup disc 1.3 doesn't work. So until I have time to devote to Super Mario Galaxy, I want to be able to use my Setup disc (via FW 1.9b).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Just GCOS your 1.3 disc, no biggy. That's what I did and I got it working.

    I appreciate the update, but I could have done without the sexy butt in my face while I updated. It was a little annoying to have that spring up with my wife and kids nearby.

    I think they wanted us to quickly turn off the power during the update!

    Ok, I just had the Wiikey put in today and know nothing about updating it. I burned the 1.9g iso to a dvd and stuck it into my wii. The problem is that it says it's unable to read to disc. Anything I'm missing here? Should I use the 1.3 config disc first, then use the 1.9g disc? Remember to go easy on me... I'm new at this.
