    just found this, not at home yet so i can't try this out, can someone confirm it works????????????

    WiiKey firmware update for USA/JAP/PAL Wii consoles. Includes ISO images ready to burn. The changelog as follows: Audiofix fixed o_0. Dual layer support (no bitsetting required). Improved media support (all supported chipsets). Full Gamecube regionfree (no-swap/video setup). Various 'smaller' improvements/fixes. Workaround for FW 3.0 gameid limitation (existing wkb 1.2 discs will boot again). 'On the fly' settings for gc games (by holding buttons). Toggle audiofix, diskspeed, force NTSC/PAL

    If someone lets me know how to upload this here i will!!!

    Cheers

    Edit, this is a copy of the nfo

    - wiiKey update v1.9b - |
    |------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | |
    | "wheres teh update?" |
    | ---------------------- |
    | right...first off, we like to apologize for the long wait. we |
    | understand that some people have been very upset about it. all |
    | we like to say is that the truth is often a bit more complex |
    | than what people make up on forums, and shit happens. anyways, |
    | those that didn't die of accumulated anger... |
    | welcome to wicked wiikey update! |
    | |
    | so what's new ? |
    | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |
    | - audiofix fixed o_0 |
    | - dual layer support (no bitsetting required) |
    | - improved media support (all supported chipsets) |
    | - full Gamecube regionfree (no-swap/video setup) |
    | - various "smaller" improvements/fixes |
    | - workaround for FW 3.0 gameid limitation |
    | (existing wkb 1.2 discs will boot again) |
    | - "on the fly" settings for gc games (by holding buttons) |
    | - toggle audiofix, diskspeed, force NTSC/PAL |
    | |
    |------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Full GC Regionfree |
    | --------------------- |
    | Boots GC imports directly using a small apploader hook to setup |
    | the correct video mode. To enable this feature use the new |
    | config disc (1.3). Make sure you also enable the basic region |
    | feature, thats what gets you through the wii menu in the first |
    | place. Unlike a real GC, the NTSC Wii doesnt output PAL50. That |
    | means the game may run but theres no picture. PAL60 games will |
    | work, however you need to enable it. The common way to bring up |
    | the "use PAL60?" dialog on a game is to hold B while booting. |
    | Forcing to NTSC may work as well. PAL consoles output NTSC just |
    | fine.

    I hope this is not a fake...

    But EurAsia is a reliable source, I think.

    What a pity. No time to test it myself.
    But looking forward to testing this later. =D

    Ever since then 3.0U update I heard that you can't boot Wiikey discs and other anymore. How exactly should I go about burning this one to update my wiikey? Just simply use GCOS, make it boot as a GCN game?

    Confirmed Working on PAL Wii (fimware 3.0) with Wiikey clone as sold by DealExtreme

    Audiofix appears to be working. All the GC games i've burned to a multigame disc which didn't work before, are working now. Haven't tested a single game disc yet. Wiikey config disk 1.2 is working again without booting through GCOS.

    Tested GC games: Beyond Good and Evil PAL Fight Night Round 2 NTSC
    Tested Wii games: Super Paper Mario NTSC Zelda: TP PAL and Wii sports PAL (original)

    Wiiiiiiiiiii

    You should be able to burn using imgburn, just burn the iso for your region. Ive seen in other forums that it even works on clones.

    Would be interesting to see if certain wii games now work in other regions which didnt before...
