    About to Install Wiikey2

    Hello everybody. I have been doing alot of reading on modding before I just jump into it. I am about to install my wiikey2 with the clip. The only question I have is, do I have to keep removing the chip before I do an update? I read that certain updates can detect the chip and brick the system. I guess the question I have is, what do I need to do, or not to, to make sure I do not brick my system or get locked out of the online feature. What do I need to know from here on having this? Thank you very much for your help in advance.

    I didnt have to remove mine when updating from 3.2 to 4.0. I may be wrong but I didnt think a firmware update could disable a hardmod (i.e WiiKey2, etc). Softmods on the other hand are susceptible to firmware upgrades.

    Yeah you don't need to remove modchip to do updates. There have been no updates that will render the modchip useless.

    Chips arent affected by system menu updates only softmods are.

    Becareful not to bed any pins when installing the wiiclip

    Hey all, still a rookie!, i got a wii console from the US with 3.4 system, i ordered the wiikey2 chip which i know works with my d2E chipset, anyway, i sent the wii to my friends at a professional electronic cente for fixing stuff, anyway, i gave them the istructions on what to solder and they did a pretty good job, BUT, the wii played ORIGINAL PAL GAMES, and ORIGINAL & BACKUP NTSC games,{{NOTE!!: i played TONY HAWK PROVING GROUNDS which was PAL, the wii drive recognized it and activated its menu but wouldnt load}} but couldnt play other PAL Backups, so i thought there was somethin wrong with the soldering, i sent it back but personally observed the soldering on the chip, it was excellent[i know becasue am an engineering student] and very acurate!, any way, they had soldered 8 wires, but i found out that D,E,F connections they connected were unnecassary because the sticker on back of the chip wasnt white, so we disconnected them, anyway when i got back home thinking i solved the whole thing, nothin workss!!!!!!! except for original NTSC games, even the TONY HAWK DISC wouldnt be read....... i dunno what to do know, the repair guy would kill me if i told him to resolder those threee connections, i know that this might be the longest message ever posted but i really dont know what to do thnx alot

    Your Wiikey2 might have needed the 3 extra wires installed unless you know it was a v2 with the hightest firmware 1.2 already installed. Is there a yellow sticker on your Wiikey?

    Also, attaching a picture will help a lot.
