    Could play PAL now I can't

    A friend and I both have the Wiikey2 installed, we were both semi-bricked, we both recovered with "The new super mario". I connected online and got an additional update my friend didn't, I don't know if the update had anything to do with it. Now he can still play a PAL game but it will not play on mine. The Wii is a US region with the Wiikey2 so it has been playing PAL games fine. I don't see anything that is not working properly since the semi-brick repair and US "backup" games play fine.

    What can I do to get the PAL region code to play again?

    "was" Bricked

    If u updated to 4.2 when connecting online u will not be able to play out of region games anymore. As u r a modchip user I assume u have no soft mods and so no nand backup or boot2 which would allow u to revert back. The only way would be to softmod and then try to downgrade the firmware which isn't recommened but I believe is doable.

    Just softmod and play all your games with any of the three usb loaders! Yes you can play out of region games through usb loaders!
    A quick search will find you plenty of tutorials.

    I don't get it, the Wiikey2 is what makes it region free so it shouldn't make a difference what Nintendo update I have in (except for when I put in the wrong region update but that's been fixed now) they haven't blocked the wiikey2's functions yet since it runs in stealth mode. Is there an update for the Wiikey2? I've only found one for the first wiikey.

    You'd better re-read Poob3008's reply eariler in this thread. This is a known issue with 4.2 --- you're stuck. You can softmod and play out of region but not via modchip on 4.2
