    Alright guys, hoping I can receive some help here.

    I installed my Wiikey and it can play both Originals and Burned games with no problem. (Happy).

    However, I cannot install the firmware update. I downloaded the 1.2, ran the batch, burned the iso using imgburn w/ ridata medium. I tuned on the wii, plopped the disc in, and it does not read.

    Any comments or suggestions?

    I'm am no pro but I burned my setup disk and it worked well.
    I used DVD decrypter at speed 4x
    My friend succeeded on nero same speed
    1) Closed other programs while burning iso
    2) Try changing DVD brands ( I used a Verbatim DVD+R8x)
    3) Make sure you burn the right region iso
    That's all I can think of until the pros come to this thread ^_^

    When making your bootable image is it creating an ISO that is 4.37?

    If not you will need to try creating the Bootable ISO again.

    What do you get from installing this update?

    Also, where do I find it? I've been at www.wiikey.cn, but I can't find no updates in there. I haven't gotten one update since I got my wiikey, so...

    Thanks! :)

    Go to the link below and download setup disc v1.2

    This is the latest available as of now. They have noted that a newer version should be out at anytime but that has been the word for the past month and still no update.

    If you want to know what the v1.2 has to offer then download the file and read the read me file it should have a change log in it.

    I see there's also a 1.1... If I install the 1.2, do I get whatever 1.1 contains aswell? Or will I need to install 1.1 and then 1.2?

    1.2 will include what 1.1 has as well.

    And it covers what 1.0 offered as well?

    Also, a bit noobish I know, but what should I do after I've burned it? I popped it into the wii and connected my GC controller and went to the disc channel, but I don't know what to do in there. There's all types of emulators and media players too? I just want the newest firmware :(

    If you don't get the firmware update can you still play online?

    Ok I think you are getting a bit confused. There is a Wiikey config disc. The config disc allows you to change various options on the wiikey such as region-lock and drive speed. The config disc has been updated recently to work better and have more options. The 1.2 config disc does not contain a firmware update for the Wii or the Wiikey, as of now there are no firmware updates available for the wiikey. The "1.2 disc" refers to the version number of the config disc itself. When a firmware update disc from the Wiikey team does become available I'm sure the word will be out on the forums very quickly.

    I have heard allot of Wiikey owners say it doesn't flash new firmware to the Wiikey it only gives you access to the Wiikey settings to change.

    How is it possible to use any new features or bug fixes to the Wiikey if it doesn't flash anything to the Wiikey itself?

    I would think an updated setup disc would have to flash to the Modchip at least one time when originally inserting the updated setup disc to add possible bug fixes or new features that are available for the Wiikey.

    If I am wrong explain how bug fixes or added features are added to the Wiikey itself with out flashing to the Wiikey.

    Ah, that explains a lot :) Thank you. Question for ya though, I tried taking off the region lock. Is the result of doing that EXACTLY the same as if I just region patched the game with Region Frii? (if so, I guess that means I won't have to use the patching program anymore, since the Wii would just do it for me?)

    Thank you

    http://www.ozmodchipsfaq.com/wiki/index.php?title=Wiikey_Configuration_disc I just got finished reading that after the new firmware 3.0 update your config 1.2 disc will read "dirty disc" This is Nintendos way of saying thanks for hacking there console. Apparentlly there is a fix for this, you must run the config disc through another application but it says it's only for pal consoles so I don't know about ntsc? I would suggest not upgrading to the 3.0 firmware if you have a wiikey unless you know how to run the confg disc through another app like they say. I hope this helps!! I don't even own a wii but I'm doing my research! Good Luck!
