    Check it out

    This is Beta firmware that we (and other distributors) are testing out.


    The update:
    -Runs are pretty much the same speed as the 1.9g update. It does a test, and then dump.
    - No Ass
    - No 'segaaa'
    - No homer

    Config Disc:
    -Runs fine without the need for GCOS, even when region free is turned off. FINALLY!

    Config Disc Menu:
    - As you can see there are a couple of new options on the main menu.
    - The Wiikey disc dumper has been taken out
    - Classic IPL --> Click on it will make the menu freeze for about 3 seconds, and then the original GC logo/animation will run....then it will return back to the config menu. No idea about the use of this.

    Wiikey config options:
    - New options are Dev Mode and Block updates.
    - The picture you see below are the default settings when you enter the menu.
    - Block updates is set to on, but it didn't seem to block updates.
    - Setting Dev mode to on (and leaving block updates on) seems to totally bypass game updates, and games run fine if the update is not needed.
    - Allows you to change the drive speed, but unfortunately our tests have shown so far that it is still locked to 3x [​IMG] This is the point of a BETA though, so fingers crossed it will be fixed.


    Other fixes:
    - SSBB retail working fine on my PAL and NTSC-U machine.
    - SMG still working!


    Please don't
    -PM me asking for the update or config discs. We will not 'leak'

    How effective is BLOCK UPDATES? What is DEV MODE? 6x does it work?

    Thanks Oz!

    So what is the improvement and where is the "butt-background" [​IMG]

    I think the only problem with the latest firmware of the Wiikey was that the original brawl disc didn`t function on it. So I assume, that they fixed that problem.

    I'd guess it's just a built-in brickblocker...

    Well just tried to run an SSBB backup (NTSC-U dual layer)
    On my PAL 3.0u wii
    It still wants to update, no blocking going on

    SSBB original works fine
    The config disc does not need GCOS to boot....it just boots on its own

    I will test out more later

    Posts merged


    Nope
    Just the raw files

    Update is 300kb
    config disc is 8mb

    Can you please test if the disc spins at 6x if you select it on the config?
    In 1.9g, the disc keeps spinning at 3x no matter what.

    Here is an interesting point.....

    I set update blocking to on
    I set dev mod to on...

    I inserted the same SSBB disc and it didnt ask for an update!
    I click start and i get a black screen (it need the update to run)

    But interesting that the update is kind of blick blocked from the config disc. The SSBB is a RAW DL ISO, untouched by truncha
