    Guess he has the same problem that I'm having.
    I tried both updates 1.9g and 1.9b and they both game me a test flash failure
    told me to check my connections... ppl said maybe it's cuz my wiiky is a clone
    (which if is I'm not aware ¬¬) but some ppl said their clones updated just well. any sugestions?

    Try ejecting the dvd when it tells you to press a or reset to start test/update.

    Well, the clones (like wiikit) have been confirmed working to... so I'm almost sure thats not the reason...

    I think the best thing to do is to call the man who install your wiikey(if it's not you) and let him do the job.
    Im gonna do this tomorrow.

    eject method do not work. It is just simply bypass the test and upgrade and the system will tell you completed.
    but actually it is still the old firmware.

    some clones can be updated, and some can be not!

    most people dont even know for sure if they have a wiikey chip in their wii console.
    best bet is to open it up if it wont update and swap the chip for a real one.

    or reprogram the clone [​IMG]

    not all clones are equal, I'm sure many of them are pretty much perfect copies but some manufactures probably cut corners to lower costs. How this affects updating I cannot say.

    It's a shame that many people have paid others to install a wiikey and then they just install something much cheaper...while charging wiikey prices.

    That's why I do my own modding [​IMG]

    Also let it be known that it was specified that this update IS a beta. Use at your own risk sort of thing. I wouldn't be surprised if that affected some people.

    Exactly. Some wiikey clones could very well just be other chip firmwares that use the same pins.
