I have always wondered what would happen to my poor wii if I where to region change it from USA to KOREAN. I have always assumed this would lead to certain doom. Today I was bored and thought it would be a good day to kill my wii, so I did it. Not very exciting, it worked perfectly. So just an FYI, this can be done without issue, not that there is a point. But if you did want to do it, the method is found in my softmod guide.
I actually think this could be good. Once the US dollar crashes
So... I bought a Wii from eBay and it had a bad AV encoder. After talking with Bad_Ad84 I decided to attempt a replacement..... Ya, this is about as hard if not harder as is was for me to refit a nand the first time. I caught on to that after a few times as I'm sure I will this to... It just sucks I spent the evening and ended up with a fail on my first time try. I can't say it was a wasted evening as I got some experience in the procedure. I will have to remove the chip and start over....... but
CHECK IT OUT!!!!!
I've been doing some research on boot2 and Bootmii in order to help design a PC tool which can detect the boot1 and boot2 versions from a NAND dump. During this process I've found that uninstalling Bootmii using the Hackmii installer deletes the Bootmii ARM code but actually leaves the fake signature behind. This proves that Nintendo would be able to detect Bootmii was once installed on the console. See the three examples below.
1.) Boot2 - Stock (Bootmii never installed)

This build is intended to provide updated DSi features to users before the release of v2.0.
The DSi Common Key is NOT embedded into this release. Once it inevitably spreads and becomes common place, I could embed the key. Many sites do not want any trace of it, so this build respects this request.
