Same Region Backups not working on WiiKey2
I have a U.S. version Wii with a WiiKey 2 installed. All of my games I have backed up myself and are same region. I had updated my Wii to 4.3U a while ago (Through an update from a recent game). All of my backed up games workled fine. Then recently I was going online for the wii for some reason or other and it wanted me to do an update...I chose no and searched online if there was a new FW after 4.3U...there wasn't one, so what is that update?
Anyway, I declined that update, but then my daughter decided to go online with the Club Penguin Game Day backup I made because she wanted to link it to her Club Penguin account. She said it asked her to update and she did. Now my backups do not work more than a few minutes, meanwhile all of them worked fine with 4.3U and the current FW still says 4.3U. Original games still work fine.
OK, if you update, and the system menu version is the same, it installed a other ios (i think) meanwhile installing it (might) have updated something that could have, "blocked your wiikey" . i hope you have bootmii installed ( i know little about hardmods)
Found Problem...the culprit is a faulty WiiClip
After taking apart the wii, removing the WiiKey2 (that is attached to a D2A drive via a Wii Clip), and reseating it...my backup games would work. Then when I refitted the cover the games wouldn't play again. Opened the wii again, when I pulled the unscrewed the drive and lifted it the Wiikey2 & clip was laying there. Tried to pull pins out a little under magnification and still same result. For the time being I put in a DriveKey v1.0 (all backups work again) that I had and will try to reinstall the WiiKey2 via solder points when I get a chance.
It turns out it was pure coincidence that it stopped recognizing backups after the update.
Blasu7 thanks for your advice.
