    Is the drivekey really updateable?

    well one of the features of the drivekey is that it is updateable via dvd, but i dont even see any updates on their website, and if there were updates what do they do? increase drive speed?

    I am not exactly sure what it does and why they need it but may be a good thing for the future


    it may only update the firmware in the chip I would say. This may not make it faster. I have a feeling it wont. I assume it is for future games that need a slight change to get them to play!!

    Thumbs up Drivekey wii

    yes the final version of the DriveKey is updatable via dvd (updates the spi )
    and core reprogrammable by jtag usb programmer

    it can add new features, fix bugs if any, or problems modchip related

    there is no update..as there is no reason to have one

    There's quite a few of us crossing our fingers that the DriveKey team will release an update to fix or at least better the drive speed issue (installing DriveKey results in 3x drive speed instead of the normal 6x) - assuming that this is at all technically possible.

    I'm wondering if an update like that would be possible by DVD, or if it would have to be done via the JTAG programmer (which would require me to reopen my Wii, since I didn't install the JTAG cable the first time).
