Wii key updating
UPDATE 8/3/17 am: As promised, we've spent a couple more days getting to grips with the performance profile of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on both Switch and Wii U, and while it's still difficult to justify investing so much money in a new console just for one title, what's clear is that aspects of the game that truly stress the GPU can see significant performance advantages for the Switch title - whether you're docked or using the console as a portable.
We identified several points in the game where the graphics hardware is likely to be put under stress - big explosions while Link indulges in combat, along with the area of the title we had the most requests for testing: Kakariko Village.
"In theory, the firmware on the drive can be rewritten with a new, secured version via a Wii U system update and thus nullify the device, but the question is how the Wii Key team reverse-engineered the system in the first place," he added.
Unless Nintendo finds out what the Wii Key group used as an exploit, additional hackers could issue a system update for their own hardware and "piracy will continue with barely a pause" as described by Leadbetter.
I haven't updated the Wii for at least 2 years (it's been in the cupboard for ages). Dave Hey, do yourself a favour and don't update, 4.3 is a pain and has no benefit for the user, was only designed to prevent homebrewing and modding etc.
Can I update this via the system menu to the latest firmware (4.3) or will this affect the Wiikey and playing backups? this may sound blunt but to make things easier for you, you might want to switch to softmodding and usb loading. I'll be testing some more today, otherwise softmodding will be next.
Hi all, I have been out of the game for a long time so not sure on a few things.
I have a Japanese Wii that was bought in Dec 2006, it is fitted with a Wiikey 1.
still have my old wiikey in my console but my drive didn't see a disc for a long time. Its just gonna be harder for you to find a backup for your games. Eurogamer reports that the group responsible for the first Wii mod chip has finally hacked the Wii U so that owners can play copied games.The group said on May 1 that it has reversed the process of authenticating the Wii U drive, disk encryption, file system, and everything else needed for a next generation key called Wii Key U.It's the same big, core adventure, no matter which screen or gamepad is in front of you. We imagine that those services will come in time, but they won't be on the e Shop immediately.And the rest of the Switch launch lineup is distressingly thin. is shipping, there's almost nothing else on the horizon.
