    How do I find out what firmware is my Wiikey?

    Ok I have a Wii modded with a Wiikey. I just turned on my Wii again for like almost a year. my Wii was on 3.(point) something firmware then I updated it online and now it's on 4.2U I don't know if it's the right thing to do & if there's any consequences for that. Anyhow since I don't know what Firmware my Wiikey is on. I tried to download an update 1.9s burned & put into my Wii. But I got error like something about connection. So I did the eject trick before you press reset and it went thru. But did it really update? Is there a way to know or check my firmware? I also tried the 1.9 config disc and I also got an error (remove/eject disk then press power 4 seconds to power off) I'm lost what do I do? Did I do it right?

    I don't have any softmod and I'm not familiar with it. But I do remember the guy who modded my Wii put some Homebrew Channel I think on my SD card. But that was more than a year ago. any help would be appreciated. Just want my Wii to be updated so I can play backups. I'm out of the scene for more than a year. I dunno what's what & what to do. Thanks

    no problem forget about the wiikey for a minute, firstly get that homebrew channel up and running again, and you'll have no problem doing anything,
    you can get hbc up running again very easily using the bannerbomb hack for 4.2, all you want preferably is sd card and wifi

    Okay completely ignore what the above person wrote. They did not read your post and the site that they sent you to isn't even allowed. To check your system menu, just go into your wii system settings. It should be displayed at the top. What the 4.2 update does is disables out of region disc loading on modchips. What you will need to do is go to Wiikey Fusion Announced! Welcome to the official website of Wiikey! and find the correct region and wiikey that you are using and burn it on a DVD-R at 2X speed. Some modchips have been fried because of the 4.2 update but, I have never heard of it happening to any of the wiikeys.

    No I know how to check my Wii's firmware. I Want to know how to check my "WIIKEY" Firmware. And I did go to that WIIKEY website and downloaded Wiikey 1.9s Update (US) and Config 1.9s (US). Burned it on Verbatim DVD-R on imgburn at 2.4x but the update gets error so I did the Eject trick. (press eject then press reset) I did finish but I dunno if it really updated

    so I'm asking if there's a way to Check my WIIKEY's Firmware. Also the Config Disc I got an error when I put it on my Wii. It says (eject Disc and press power button 4 secs to turn off) Haven't ried Pal discs at this time but burned copies of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and The Latest Resident Evil works fine.

    Yeah as far as I know it's just a Wiikey not Wiikey2. My Wii was modded more than a year ago.

    Mine was modded in jan. 2009 and I got a wiikey2 put in it. So it might be possible. Well, as far as your 4.2, you should be able to all NTSC-U games. You won't be able to any PAL or NTSC-J(not sure). The 4.2 update should have gave you the IOS required to play the newer games without problems though.

    If i remember it correctly I think I was told it was Wiikey not Wiikey2. Why what's the difference between the two?

    wiikey 1 is the oldest verson of wiikey and it doesn't have that many features and game fixes. The wiikey 2 has almost all the game fixes including the anti-BCA Protection which wiikey 1 does not have.
