    No, never, never under any circumstances whatsoever. It is actually impossible to update the wiikey [​IMG]

    Here's what I don't understand. They announce that the update is 99% done. They announce that they're in the testing phase and will release it in approximately 1 week.
    And here we are almost 6 weeks later and still no update, something about this feels really wrong.

    As they say, only time will tell. In the WiiKey's case, alot of time is needed.

    Don't you guys who buy clones feel a lot better now knowing that you didn't waste money on a product that the team couldn't even deliver an update to [​IMG]

    The place who did my install claims he doesn't install clones, but really, who cares right now, it's not like there's support for the real thing now anyways.

    Why does everyone want an update for?

    The Wiikey and most modchips already have compatability for 100% of the games in your region. Also, there is no way to tell whether they will support their product anymore or not.

    They are likely just waiting for the new version of GCOS to come out.

    actually, I've seen a lot of wiikey users saying that none of the usual tricks will fix audio streaming games with wiikey. still end up with a crash/DRE. And with a wiikey in, even original disks of audio streaming games won't play anymore. I almost bought one of these in my first 48 hours of researching ... good thing I was too poor. I ended up ordering wiinja deluxe - it's in the mail right now.

    The best thing about Wiikey is that you can unsolder it.

    Well, then its a bit strange, because Eternal Darkness runs with no Problems on my Wiikey. (Nothing Patched or Chanced at the game)

    Seriously though, why does everyone want an update?

    Gamecube support? This is a GIFT. They didn't have to include Gamecube support, heck most modchips/softmods don't even have backwards compatability.

    Audio Fix? If you haven't played/bought the game that you want by NOW then seriously, I don't think you care. If you do care still, go get a gamecube for 20$ and go buy that game.

    Multi Region Support. Unless you are talking about Pal games, it seems irrelevant to me since most people wouldn't be able to even understand the game to begin with.

    Better multi regional support would be great for games like trauma centre. The USA as had it since wii release. We are getting it next month. But I think its one of the very few games that PAL users can't play.
