    I am pleased to report complete success with my NTSC-U WiiKey upgrade. SMG works, along with every other backup and non backup disk I have. Woot!

    I have to admit, watching the 3.1 update was nervewracking, as it proceeded bit by bit, until about 40 percent, then sat there for about 1 min 30 sec(seemed like a eternity) and then suddenly jumped to 100 percent, Update Successful.

    Flashing went very quickly and very smoothly for me. SMG worked equally well.

    *Edit Per Request*

    Before update:
    Wiikey at 1.9b
    US Wii (launch model) at 3.0 firmware.
    1.9g burned at 4x with no padding to Memorex DVD+R with Nero.
    Mario Galaxy burned at 8x to Memorex DVD+R with Nero.

    my upgrade didn't even make it to 40% .. it was maybe 20% at best before it just up and stopped... i decided to power it down and power it back up, works fine but it shows 3.0u in the wii settings screen now.

    good times [​IMG]

    Thanks for your reports! But could you please include a little more information about your setups? Like, region, chipset(if known), rom version, etc. That way we can pinpoint any problems if they arise more easily.

    D2B Cut Leg Wii NTSC-U
    Genuine Wiikey originally running 1.3

    Burnt 1.9g iso using Nero and no padding on the iso

    Update went completely smooth, no hiccups, pauses or moments of "oh crap, I'm screwed"

    SMG update went just as well. Update from game disk went smoothly from 1-100% and booted right up after the Wii reboot

    Not sure what chip I have. It was one of the launch ones, if that tells you anything. That's in reference to the Wii not the wiikey burnt the Wiikey update with Sonic Recordnow, no padding.

    updated perfectly on a wiikey clone, totally flawless. Mario Galaxy works a charm. Great game too!

    My wiikey flash isn't working it gives me a connection error... Don't know if my wiikey is a clone but some ppl say clones do work... maybe it's my wii firmware that is 2.2u, does that affect it?

    this is the success reports post, not the "question about a failure, when theres already 30k other posts on a number of other forums and this one also" post. either way nah, i updated my wiikey to 1.9g with the 2.2u firmware.

    NTSC-U DMS chipset (i think it was dms eitehr that or d2a, pretty sure it was teh DMS one tho)
    2.2u wii firmware
    wiikey w/ original firmware on it.

    updated the wiikey to 1.9g without a hitch, then proceeded to update the wii with SMG when it suddenly hung at about 25% maybe a little less and stayed there for a good 10-15+ minutes so i just shut it off. Upon starting it up, SMG read and plays just fine and now my wii shows 3.0u as the wii firmware in the settings screen. *shrug*

    No problems with the Wiikey update, 1.3 config disc worked also. Did the unplug trick for SMG and it works great too. Gotta say that the Wiikey team did a great job!

    It took me a couple tries to get it done but it worked.......ands here was my flow pattern. 1 failed burn after 1.9g and 1 read and crash on load. Both were on Maxell DVD-RW. burned it a couple more times and got more anxious as they failed to read. I then ran the 1.3 update for wiikey then the 1.9g update once more....burned it to Maxell dvd-rw and WAM! it worked.

    and yes as others have reported all games that I found unreadable now read well.

    You have satisfied the masses again wiikey.

    So much software, So little time.

    I pre-ordered SMG already, but I had just finished God of War for the first time and was craving something cartoony before moving on the GoW2. So I caved in and decided to try SMG.

    I was on the original wiikey firmware and wasn't sure if I could upgrade straight to 1.9g, but I didn't want to risk fucking something up, so I started with 1.9b.
    Downloaded both update isos from the wiikey site and used filechop on them to pad them to the size of a GC game. Burned both with Nero 6 at 8x using TDK DVD-Rs. Ran both discs and updated with out a hitch.

    Burned SMG on the same media and at the same speed using K3b (different computer than the update discs). Ran the Nintendo update from the disc and booted SMG without any problem.
    I am getting a few DREs every once and a while, but I just eject the disc and pop it back in and it continues as normal. I'll probably end up playing using the original disc when it arrives anyway.

    My Wii is NTSC-U, using D2B drive.

    Successfully upgraded
    used Verbatim DVD-RW for wiikey f/w upgrade
    Wii 07/07 d2b, cut chip
    no problems at all
    SMG plays perfectly, as does all backups

    upgraded genuine Wiikey 1.0 --> 1.9b --> 1.9g then Upgraded Wii firmware 3.1u - to SMG update
    I must say the wii upgrade was pretty intrusive, the game did not show up on the channel, when i clicked the game channel it immediately demanded that i upgrade the wii with no option to say no.
    nintys getting a little rude on us
