For the last year or so, WiiKey2 has been great. It allows me to play backups of games from other regions. This is all I used it for. No homebrew, softmods, or anything else.
The way I understand it, is that if I upgrade to firmware 4.2 I will now loose the ability to play all of my backups from other regions.
Everyone keeps saying, "just stay at 4.1, don't upgrade to 4.2". The problem is, games are starting to be released that require 4.2 (like Wii Fit Plus). As time goes on, more and more games will probably check for (or install) version 4.2.
So to my question: For those of us that only have the WiiKey2, and only use it to play backups from other regions, are we now out of luck?
Is the WiiKey2 dead?
