    Hi mauifrog! I am trying to update the wii to 4.2k as you suggest.
    I am using System-Update_4.2K archive you posted, and when I open wiiscrubber I get warning: 'Doesn't seem to be the correct key.bin'. This is normal I guess, so I click "yes".
    Which is the right procedure to replace the Update partition in a ISO? Should I use a Korean iso or a PAL one is also ok?
    For the moment I only got iso files without an update partition, so I don't know if I can create a new one when only "DATA" partition is there.

    Thanks for your support!

    -run the makekeybin.exe and follow the directions
    -load wiiscrubber, it should load without error
    -open a game iso which has an update partition, preferably 4.1+
    -right click on the update partition and click resize
    Resize the update partition to the max value allowed
    -right click on the update partiton and click crypted partition -load
    find the 4.2k img and load it

    It should now show as being "bad" in wiiscrubber. You can only view it if you load wiiscrubber with the kor key.bin.

    Burn this disc, your korean wii should see the 4.2k update and update when loaded from the recovery menu.

    Hello mauifrog! I did this as you described, but my korean wii didn't see the update... the disc did not boot...
    I am thinking about buying a new wii...

    Try this-
    4.2k-update.iso.zip
    Make sure your modchip is not blocking disc updates, and is set to region free.

    Thx for the ISO.
    It didn't work though. Same result as before (with the disc I prepared following your instructions).
    I have two different behaviors, depending if I use recovery mode or not:

    1) "savemiifrii" mode: 3.2(KOR) showed in the bottom-right corner, I insert the DVD it starts to read, but it stops after 2 seconds. The modchip led flashes, after a few seconds the DVD starts reading again, but it stops immediately after, and so on... DVD starts and stops again and again...

    2) normal mode, modchip autoboot activated, warning screen, I press A, the warning screen fades out (not completely, the warning text is almost completely faded but visible), the DVD starts to be read and it continues spinning indefinitely... after 10 minutes it still spins but nothing happens on the screen...

    I tried with the modchip configured PAL and also KOR, result is the same.
    Update is allowed by modchip and also region free.

    I think recovery mode does not work as expected on my wii...
    3.2(KOR) shown at bottom-right. I insert "Nintendo Backup disk" but again the same: disk spins and starts to be read.. modchip blue led flashes (on the small external config circuit board)... disk stops... disk starts reading again... blue led flashes and disk stops... etc.
    Could it be the media (verbatim DVD-R, 4x DAO with ImgBurn)? Or the problem is with the modchip (SUNKEY)?

    I would think you would be able to boot something, especially that update disc. You might want to check that your chip is installed properly and nothing has come lose.

    same problem here...

    i have here: a wasabi dx set to AB, region free, disc update is enabled. attached to a drive that can read dvd's.

    still cannot fix the 3.2 K with health screen.

    i want to find out if some original korean disc can be booted on RM..

    edited: maybe it has something to with it's TMD ??

    a little question:
    how does the wii read disc, in terms of RM?
    and how does wii read when in system menu?
