hopefully drivekey comes out with an update. only reason why i bought a chip is so that i wouldnt have to mess around with soft modding. id be pissed if they didnt fix this issue.
Still haven't received a response back from the folks at DriveKey.com.
I have followed up with this email:
Hey guys. I sent a question out to you a while ago and have not gotten a response yet. I'm a member of many different forums online strongly advocating your product. I've mentioned that I sent you an email inquiring about any firmware updates to your product, yet you have not provided a response. Are you working on a Wii firmware 4.2 fix?
We await your response.

I was so happy with my Drivekey, all my games PAL and NTSC worked great, but now with the 4.2 update, only NTSC games work
Drivekey staff, please dont dissapoint us!!!
Just a quick update. Have not heard back from the folks at Drivekey.com.
i had i feeling you wouldnt because they havent yet solved the problem of the drivekey not being able to work with the newest wii drive
No change in situation?
hi, mines been updated to 4.2e and im using drivekey modchip, alot of my backup games are now not working.
Anyone know any fixes yet?
I have the same problem as most of you. My wii is NTSC-U and my PAL games don't work (don't have jap games, but they most likely don't work either).
In a fit of desperation, I've tried to softmod my wii to get them working again. Needless to say, it's very complicated. Softmodding on 4.2 (getting homebrew channel is a breeze, but getting backups to load...not so much) is still like shooting in the dark, as you have to try various methods and HOPE that one works.
I was just wondering if anyone knows of a homebrew hack that just opens up the region lock. I figured that if such an app were to exist, that would take care of the region problem (and the drivekey would take care of the backup problem, since that part is working fine as is).
In other words, is there a simple homebrew app/hack that JUST takes care of the region lock and IS NOT a backup loader?
