Applies to: Wiikey Fusion Check your system Menu version.

Starting from System Menu 4.2 and onwards a new method of detecting region is used, which cannot be bypassed by Wiikey.

The last version available: Firmware 1.99 Beta - 20 Due to it's popularity the Wiikey has been cloned.

According to the manufacturer, "Cloned Wiikeys will not accept the official software updates".

However, special patches have to be applied to gamecue-homebrew discs, including the Wii Key setup disc.

Also, an official software update that does not work with the clones has yet to be released.

If the Wii needs updating, the update must be installed before the game can be started.

However, if the Wii cannot see the update partition because the brickblocker feature is set to block all updates, or if a 'scrubbed' game image where the update partition has been removed is used, the Wii will allow the game to start, resulting in Error 002.

The problems seem to happen with any kind of media, be it backup or orignal. What you should (and in the case of clones have to) do though, is use the "Setup Disc Images v1.3" (available via download) to configure your chip to play games in the right video format etc.

Yes, Gamecube homebrew games and apps can be burned on DVDs.
