    thanks for the reply ... i am trying to read and have been reading ... and the link you sent me to the install wii key 2 thread is not helpful at all. Like i mentioned the wii key2 is already installed and working on my wii. I just need to know if doing system upgrades or playing online will brick, ban , or stop the wii key working in anyway

    The answer to the one question is indeed found within that thread. If you update and it goes to 4.2 or 4.3, it will no longer work. The link provided details to prevent that. Online? Do you think this is XBL or something? That question has been asked a million times, and does not deserve an answer for someone unwilling to LOOK/SEARCH.

    Edit: if you manually want to update your IOS, see Joostin's thread here.

    Ok so yes the update answer is there ... my mistake .. i was reading more about how to setup the wii key 2 in that thread
    and i am a member in numerous forums from bluray, to xbox to audio/video etc.. and most members (just like i am when i have the info) are nice and willing to share info. So i don't know why you bother replying with 2-3 sentences without answering the questions? Answering the questions would actually be quicker for you and me. And to your BOLD comments. i have been searching and reading. And again it depends on where you read .. i have seen users state NOT to playonline it will brick your console ,, others say Nintendo does not brick consoles but you can get banned or stop the backups from working. Others say you can playonline without any problems .... so which am i to believe,
    So please if you're unable or unwilling to help, please bypass the thread and i'll wait for another member to hopefully provide or lead me to the true info about playing online
    regards

    I understand, trust me, I don't agree with spook feeding either. And I understand
    If I was asking for wii hacks, mods, software install, etc...
    But I'm just wanting to know if the wii (with wii key 2) can play online without any
    Issues (bricking, banning, etc)
    I am not looking for any further info..... I am a father of 2 and thus I don't have
    A large amount of time for surfing/reading/etc.. Which is why I'm not bothering with any
    Wii hacks (I don't have the time) just want to know if they go online, I won't hear
    "Dad, the wii is not working, or its broken, etc..."
    I don't understand why you can't answer "its safe" or "its unsafe"
    That's all I'm asking here!
    Thanks

    You can play just fine, but you will most likely end up updating the Wii and your Wiikey will no longer work. You may want to follow the guide leasted above to prevent any updating. Yes safe to play online! Follow the guide!

    Since when does updating the Wii cripple the wiikey? Works fine in 4.3u afaik. But 4.2 you lose region-free only.

    Edit-

    Unless you guys mean scrubbed games no longer work , but proper sized ISOs work fine and always recommended.
