    You can do anything with the wiikey 2 that you could do on an unmodded wii.

    You should do updates from the game disc though and only from your region.
    That is the one thing I recommend.

    I don't know anything about the wii playing DVD movies.

    So, in order to perform a system update on a wii that has wiikey2 installed, you would have to physically disable (disconnect) the modchip to avoid having a $250 paperweight?

    You can preform a system update with the chip installed. Just make sure you install a same region update. IE, do NOT update your NTSC console with a PAL game update.

    If you insert a newer game into your Wii and it asks you to update, as long as the game you have in there is from the same region your Wii is from, you are good to go.

    I have a Wiikey 2-installed Korean Wii with v3.3 Firmware and have read that completely installing the update from the USA MarioKart will give the Wii the required IOS to run TP hack using Zelda NTSC-J. I read that this will work WITHOUT bricking the Wii, even though the MarioKart is a different region. Do you know if this is verifiable?

    Thanks for your time,
