I like this install because it looks very clean, and is easy to remove if you ever choose to.

What is the problem with your WII. Is it caused by the WiiKey or what?

after i install the chip now what?


Comment on August 19th, 2007.

Legally you can only play backup games if you own the original copy. Go to a Website like thepiratebay.org and search for Wii games. They are big (around 4GB), burn the downloaded game to a DVD and play on the Wii.

Hello everybody! i have a litle problem, i finnally bougth the wiikey and i opened my wii but… It is imposible to install it cuz te mainboard of my wii is diferent!!! the MB MODEL is AMW 76121R PLEASE HELP!


Comment on August 28th, 2007.

Hi Steve,

I didn’t think there was a new version that had a different layout… I would contact Wiikey and see if they have seen it before, they could probably fill you in on the new install procedure. I guess Nintendo is trying to stay one step ahead…


Comment on September 2nd, 2007.

why do u need the electric tape for becuaze i never use it but
i soldered it on and every thing was coneted all
nice and neet but when i whent to play a back up
it said it couldnt read it but orginals worked fine ??
can some one hell me ??!? and the wii key setup disk wont work either


Comment on September 4th, 2007.

The black tape isn’t a must, check all of your connections again. One is probably not making good contact.


Comment on November 23rd, 2007.

the mainboard of my wii is AMW 76122U. PLEASE HELP!
Do you have another installation guide for this model?


Comment on November 23rd, 2007.

Thats the only one I know about, if you find another one please post it here for others to find. 🙂

Can I fit any Wii mod Chip to my Wii?


Comment on December 27th, 2007.

You should be able to Winner. Unless there are some Wii versions that look for specific mod chips. The mod chip maker will be able to tell you that.


Comment on December 28th, 2007.

ok…im confused. no where on this article does it say wat the mod is even for!!!! wat the hell!!


Comment on December 28th, 2007.

Comment on April 3rd, 2008.

hello Friends I have a new Nintendo Wii and i’ve been trying to install my WiiKey. Now the reason why im stuck at where i am is cause i look at every tutorial online and my motherboard is missing some points to solder too. In the location its suppose to go i have the 2 points where the two wholes line up in the Wiikey. I have 3 spots to solder going up and down on the left and 2 up and down on the right. E-mail me and i will send you a pic of what im talking about. Where do i solder the wires too???


Comment on April 3rd, 2008.

Hello again so basically look at this http://www.wiikey.cn/images/installWiiKey.pdf

I’m missing point 3 on my motherboard

E-mail me someone with what to do “Please don’t make dumb comments like too bad and stuff” i’m in real need of help


Comment on May 4th, 2008.

I think I have my wiikey installed ok. I was able to run the wiikey 1.9s disk successfully (test and real), and my original games work fine.

My problem, though, is that when I have a homebrew (like the wiikey setup or the GCOS_1.3_Config-USA.iso) running, my wiimote will not connect.

Any ideas?


Comment on September 7th, 2008.

How do I update my Wiikey chip to work with the new ver of Wii games is ther a disk that i can d/l to update the mod chip I think I have ver 1.9 now. When I tryed to use madden 09 it updated my Wii but wouldn’t work


Comment on September 7th, 2008.

Hi Tom,

Go to the official Wiikey site and download the new version of software.


Comment on September 10th, 2008.

I havs a Wii box and my son also has one. I installed the 1.9s firmware on one it worked fine, insalled it on other Wii and it went in fine said to reboot, when i rebooted it wouldn’t read backup dvd. Tryed to reinstall firmware but don’t see dvd HELP


Comment on September 16th, 2008.

I guess you don’t have an answer for me on the above post , do you think I should just get the new Wiikey mod with 1.9s on it and replace the old mod with new one?


Comment on September 16th, 2008.

Not exactly sure what the problem could be. A loose connection possibly? I would send an email to WiiKey with as much details as possible.


Comment on November 17th, 2008.

Comment on December 28th, 2009.

i have Wiikey1 installed and works okay. do you think i have any need to switch to wiikey2 or the new wiikey fusion?


Comment on June 14th, 2010.

Hi all, I have a 4.1E version of the Wii and I’m not too sure of the chip but it has been playing my “back ups” no problem. I have just backed up the New Super Mario game and it will play for a few minutes before going to a black screen telling me to eject the disc and reset the wii?

Any ideas what I need to do please?


Comment on June 14th, 2010.

Hi Paul,

From what I hear you are OK if your Wii Key is at version 1.9s
