    Need assistance with updating WiiKey2

    Hello, firstly I'm new to this and am amazed at how much some people know about modding!

    So I modded my wii with the Wiikey2, I burned a few games and played them but I wanted to play NSMB so I updated to V1.3 using the software on the wiikey website. Not only does NSMB not work but some of my older titles like Mario Kart do not work.

    I have a Wiikey2, currently with firmware V1.3 and my system is 3.2E

    Now I am very scarred of bricking my wii so I have some questions

    If I update my system to 4.2 or whatever the current one is, will that brick it?

    I should install homebrew before updating the system because I know there is an issue with the 4.2 update blocking homebrew, can installing homebrew with a modded wii (wiikey2) brick my wii?

    If I have homebrew I can install some applications to downgrade back to 3.2 correct??

    I would be very greatful to any modding geniuses out there who can help me

    1) Never update to 4.2. You CAN NOT downgrade from it. It will mess up your wiikey2 and block out of region gaming on it.
    2)I have a wiikey2 on a system menu 3.2 and everything works fine.
    3)Even I have some games that no longer work after awhile and have to reburn them.
    4)Try using the non patched version of NSMB. That could be your problem.
    5)You can install the homebrew channel still and have your wii softmodded. The reason I have mines softmodded is so that I can install IOS for games so that I don't ever have to update.

    yeah its a very small file. If you grabbed it from wiikey.cn then its the right one. Im on the Odyssy update which is 1.3.

    I have burned 3 different copies of NSMB and the disc channel says "wii system update" what do you think the problem is?

    If i press the wii system update that will update it to 4.2 right?

    Hi Guys,

    I have a solderless wiikey 2 and nba jam doesn't work with it. Is it because of my wii OS? What OS should I be running?

    Also I am running v1.3 for the wiikey 2. I have a PAL Wii.

    I have a copy of NBA JAM US version.

    Thanks,
    K.
