    I just had a thought. Since the 4.2 update more or less screws up region free for backups, but preloader has region free Wii game hack for it, if enabled will it compensate?

    Startpatch 4.2 has a wii region free hack. This should fix the problem from running import backups on the disc channel.

    Official 4.2u update blocks my wiikey, tried waninkoko's ...same result now im gonna try this... i dont want to have to use startpatch...i want my wiikey to work if it can...so here i go
    takes about a day for me to try since im am busy with other stuff too., but if it works or not i will post back.
    (ps actual the waninkoko gave me more of a headache then the Official 4.2update, so i went back to 3.2u with nand backup...too bad)
    thank god they fixed the HBC freezing pissed me off.

    It's a shame to watch such a good modchip die [​IMG]
    We'll need to re-crack the region free through the system menu in order to solve this problem. The modchip itself will never be able to do so on its own [​IMG].... unless they update it.

    I doubt the Wiikey Team will though. They're too busy with the Wiikey 2 and Wiikey Fusion to care about us old timers. [​IMG]

    That's why I'm looking for a "Wii region free" hack for the 4.2x. With this RF might still be able to work with wiikey v1.. [​IMG]

    Don't see it happening, least not right away. They completely changed region detection.

    honors go to v4.2 Safe Firmware Updater (bigger honour if he can fix the region free of the wiikey too!

    okay i have darkwii installed in 4.2u and evrything looks good but the wiikey region free is still DEAD

    this is better then Waninkoko, better then using the nintendo wii update function, no upside down HBC, no error to install wads or apps..as i said darkwii4.2u with mymenuify2.2 installed great.

    credit stev418 for darkwii4.2u

    cios38rev14 useing 249 installed via wifi fine as well

    hunting challenge_pal region ...loads fine with gecko1091 force NTSC so the flipping of the screen stops

    wiikey update blocker fails,wiikey config disk1.3 freezes wii on selection of ''wiikey_config''
    preloader bitches about no fake signed 36... no preloader
    bootmii is all good, wiikey still loads my region of wiisports_Resort_ntsc
