    sorry, no wiikey2 found

    I bought a Wiikey2 from Kaidomain.com and was a little suspicious since it came without a serial sticker. It did however come with a holographic sticker.
    I have a D2B and had to do a 5 wire install. The leds on the Wiikey2 seems to blink correctly during starup and diskload. I first ran a game with from same region which worked fine, but when I run the config disk I get:

    When loading Config disk I get "sorry, no wiikey2 found"

    My Wii is upgraded to 4.2U.

    The Wiikey2 looks exactly like the one depicted on Kaidomains site:
    http://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=6599

    You can even there see that it doesn't have a sticker, but obviously I am a noob and didn't do my homework )

    Is it not working because it is a clone? Is there anyway I can get it to work?

    ..... That is a super fake lol. You just got ripped off and you made a mistake of updating to 4.2. If you did your research by actually going to their official site (wiikey.cn) you will notice that all the wiikeys that were ever made are in fact BLUE not RED. If i was you, I would try to get a refund and get the real wiikey2 or get the wiikey fusion.

    Even though it is a clone it looks like it is working. I just tried to play an ISO and it works and I haven't installed any softmods.
    Guess I just can't change any settings since the config software probably checks for a serial number.
    Are there any versions of the config programs out there that don't do this?

    No it really doesn't check the serial, its just that its a fake and the wiikey team know how to make their config disc work for their wiikeys only, plus if you think about it, its not a wiikey so the config disc won't even work for it the first place. Just cause its a clone, doesn't mean its an exact replica.

    From what I can tell the hardware is exactly the same, so it is just a question wether they put a similar firmware on the chip or not.

    No they probably can't put the similar firmware on the chip. The fake wiikey makers probably put their own firmware on it.
