ok, I got a wii the first night and I gave it to my buddy in Jan 07 to have a wiikey put in. My friend loaded all of the initial updates and everything has been working great - I haven't made any updates until this month, so its been over 1 year since I updated my wiikey. I only recently updated to 1.9g, so I could play SmashBros. That worked for about a week and then my wii quit reading most discs. I used the recovery disc 1.9b which got everything working again and then just updated the wiikey using 1.9s. Now I see many people in here waiting for the new config disc before running the 1.9s update. Am I doing this in the wrong order? Can I still enable the update blocker and dev mode with the config disc? I imagine that I can, but now that the updates are getting so important I want to be sure I am doing this correctly. Thanks!
