very new to all this i have a wii with wiikey2 chip fitted with 1.3 firmware by mistake i have installed 4.2e via download on wii can play all backup pal games but will not let me play import games all was fine before can i solve this
The 4.2 update takes away the ability to play out of region games on most modchips. It is not recommended to try to downgrade. If you want region free backups, look for a firmware update from the modchip manufacturer and/or softmod the wii.
Yeah your pretty much S.O.L with that. The only way for you to play NTSC games now is to softmod your wii. Go to the recommended FAQ section of the forum and look for either messie's guide or shadowsonic2's guide. Read both of them and see which one is easier for you.
I also have a wiikey2 but I stayed in loop for purposes like this. Im still on system menu 3.2. I wouldn't recommened you downgrading your wii. It probably won't even fix it. It might actually brick your wii instead. Good luck on the softmodding. oh if you were curious you can have hardmod and softmod at the same time. They will not conflict each other.
Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun
Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.
im not a pro on this but did you try to use prog that change the region on the game and patch the update coz i have a wiikey 2 in my wii and by doin so i can play pal game
