I got a Korean Wii soft modified (no chip) for US region as well, was happy and 4.1U. Then got updated by a game to 4.2U... I reinstalled homebrew and usb loader and udpated to the patched ios70 481 and installed priiloader 0.3 (r47).
Obviously, now i got the korean 003 error... You said earlier that its easy to save my Wii from this point since my priiloader works; I can load homebrew, play games and all through it. So i guess I am "semi-bricked"..
Some guides suggest to :
- Install IOS60-64-v6174 with all patches
- Install 4.1u-System Menu-NUS-v449.zip
- Reinstall priiloader from HBC, can upgrade from my 0.3 to the 0.4b.
- Extract hacks.ini.zip to sd:\
Means a downgrade to 4.1U since its IOS60 right? Or 4.1U(IOS60) and 4.2U(IOS70) can actually run side by side? Is the steps above enough to make me 4.1U again or is it the correct steps for me since i start from 4.2U? or will brick it more?
Install system menu 4.2 wad
Install priiloader v.0.3b
Will it actually unbrick it since 003 is related to the korean region change to US? Reinstalling IOS70 will result in the same error 003 behavior, no? Or should I install the IOS70 not patched, then no more priiloader but at least my Wii SM works?
Theres a lot of guides out there for fixing it trought some games bypass, but its only when you dont have priiloader previously installed, right?
There is no fix at the moment for Korean Will updated for 4.2U with error 003 unauthorized device. I know what you said about talking about downgrade and getting ban... but seriously is it the solution since its a "Korean"?? Will it even works...?
I browse so many pages on the subjet lately, iam a bit confuse about which ones are the correct steps for this special case? I want to make sure before bricking it for real!!
