    wiikey / firmware / where to get

    Hi guys and gals am in need of a couple of links

    I have

    Wii + Wiikey
    GC2-D2B
    serial LEH12944982
    PAL

    I dont use homebrew or connect to the internet with it just want to d/l and play games.

    The firmware is the original 1.0

    I have downloaded the WIIkey update 1.9s ( europe )-and am ready to burn to disc.

    I need to update the Wii though to at least 3.1 E preferably 3.2 E and cant find it and am worried about connecting the wii to the internet to just download the latest wii update.

    Can anyone help.

    also

    Once i have this on a disc or can connect to download this i need someone to talk to me like im a 3 year old to understand this.
    (i have comp knowledge but not wii knowledge) - remember im not bothered about homebrew .

    Many thx to anyone who responds


    oh had another thought - what is bricking and how do i stop it

    Could you not just find a game that will contain that firmware update and use that?


    bricking is where an update outside of the region you are in is applied to your wii, you may hear of semi-bricking which you can still use the wii with side effects. Definitely do a search around here and I'm sure you'll find all the info you require..

    hi you can protect your self by using brickblocker so if you realy got to download the game and it is the wrong region you put it through brickblocker ,it takes out any update files and replaces them with blank files but to be safe keep to your own region

    no game has 3.2, but MANY have 3.1 like the various marios

    i would get wiikey firmware 1.9 *go on the site for details*

    get wii update manager, remove the update on ANY iso, and make it 3.2, then run the update on your wii and youll have 3.2

    or

    then update to 3.1 from a disc like mario, then install HBC via iso *download off the site* then use anyregion changer and update to 3.2

    good info... but i was wonderin.. lookin at the program WUW... it just hast the options to see the numbers of the firmware.. there are no regions Codes.
    I heard when u update u have to watch what Region Update u install!! Does it matter what update you choose?
