    how about in reverse?

    So i know from lots of reading that if i try and update my wii which is running wiikey 2 that i will brick the little sucka.......

    Here is my question.... if i update my system from 3.2 (i think) to 4.2 (band hero ) with the Wiikey removed then replace it, how will the system react?

    will it brick... will it work ..... Your thoughts would be appreciated..... if you have something to back it up or some theory then they would be appreciated more.

    Sounds plausible, as long as Wiikey is the only mod that has happened to your Wii... I'm unsure how Wiikey's firmware reacts though, is the firmware stored on the Wiikey or is it like a softmod? Either way, I really doubt you want to be on 4.2... But I don't know enough to give you reliable advice sorry : ( Post comments on Messie's guide and hope that someone there may be able to help you more than I can. Interesting theory though and good luck : )

    4.2 will take away the ability to play games from other region. it is doubtful you need to go to 4.2 to play any game since 4.1 is the highest update available via disk. the softmod guide will give you the update you need as well as the ability to install any ios files you may need in the future.
