    has anyone tried it yet? i dont understand why their own website isnt updated with the new v1.9 update.

    anyways, here's the info i got from other messageboards:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------.
    | - wiiKey update v1.9b - |
    |------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | |
    | "wheres teh update?" |
    | ---------------------- |
    | right...first off, we like to apologize for the long wait. we |
    | understand that some people have been very upset about it. all |
    | we like to say is that the truth is often a bit more complex |
    | than what people make up on forums, and **** happens. anyways |
    | those that didn't die of accumulated anger... |
    | welcome to wicked wiikey update! |
    | |
    | so what's new ? |
    | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |
    | - audiofix fixed o_0 |
    | - dual layer support (no bitsetting required) |
    | - improved media support (all supported chipsets) |
    | - full Gamecube regionfree (no-swap/video setup) |
    | - various "smaller" improvements/fixes |
    | - workaround for FW 3.0 gameid limitation |
    | (existing wkb 1.2 discs will boot again) |
    | - "on the fly" settings for gc games (by holding buttons) |
    | - toggle audiofix, diskspeed, force NTSC/PAL |
    | |
    |------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Full GC Regionfree |
    | --------------------- |
    | Boots GC imports directly using a small apploader hook to setup |
    | the correct video mode. To enable this feature use the new |
    | config disc (1.3). Make sure you also enable the basic region |
    | feature, thats what gets you through the wii menu in the first |
    | place. Unlike a real GC, the NTSC Wii doesnt output PAL50. That |
    | means the game may run but theres no picture. PAL60 games will |
    | work, however you need to enable it. The common way to bring up |
    | the "use PAL60?" dialog on a game is to hold B while booting. |
    | Forcing to NTSC may work as well. PAL consoles output NTSC just |
    | fine. |
    |------------------------------------------------------------------|

    looks fake to me. that screenshot is very "unprofessional" looking. previous boot discs showed more class. that's just my two cents.

    That is real. I just updated mine. And now Naruto 4 of GC is playable. All GC games are fully compatible. Amazing. Everything has improved. If you update to 3.0J...U don't have to worry about anything.

    i try it out on my NTSC Wii(3.0), i got the update from eurasia.nu, it works perfectly. had updated my wiikey. just have to wait for the new setup disc(1.3+). the only reason y ppl r complain that wiikney site doesnt have the update yet, is that today is a holiday.

    From the wiikey website

    [08-09-03] Wiikey update 1.9b

    A leaked version of the wiikey firmware update is available on several websites. While the leaked firmware is indeed working and has all of the announced features, it does not come with the configuration and recovery discs. A full version will be available from wiikey.cn very soon.

    exactly how do you update the wiikey using this update? do you just throw it on a dvd and update? or does it need to be dummied on a dvd? any feedback would be appreciated

    I was on maxconsole forums for the leak. Updated my D2A Wii. Naruto GNT 4 Works (using GCOS swap method).

    wiikey.cn have left everyone out in the cold so somebody (beta tester) finally posted it. It's NOT fake, it DOES work. I'm a happy importer now. Thanks to all involved (once again) and hopefully the Big N woesn't do anything to rain on the homebrew and import crowd anymore and will let it be.

    Nintendo, We just wanna play.

    I have a wii with 3.0U firmware and a wiikey installed. I did the 1.9b firmware update and I can no longer play my burned GC games. The GC games are PAL, and multi-disk ISO's but they were playing fine prior to the firmware update. All wii games worked fine, PAL and NTSC.

    Just thought I'd let people know before they update their firmware.

    The Burn GC games play fine. My firmware is the semi-bricked 2.2J. I think most of the people have already stated that 3.0 firmware doesn't allow you to boot Multi-games but with someone post something like config disc whatever...don't know the name. You are able to play multi-GC games.

    I had no problem playing these games using the GCOS disk on 3.0U, after I updated the wiikey's firmware the wii wouldn't even recognize the disks. I've also found someone in a different forum who has this problem
    http://psx-scene.com/forums/wiikey/59122-wiikey-update-v1-9b-released.html

    The way it doesn't even recognize the disks is like region free mode isn't enabled, although I have tried other PAL games for the wii and they work fine. I'm hoping though that there's going to be an option in the v1.3 setup disk that enables region free GC games and that it fixes my problem. Anyways I wouldn't recommend updating the wiikey's firmware until the configuration and recovery disks are released.

    same thing happened to me after the updated firmware. I can't read multidisc gc games though. It won't even go to the gcos menu at all. It just says that it is unrecognizable disc.
