    Unhappy half-bricked wii

    my wii is from NTSC-J

    but wii resort upgraded it to 4.2U

    i got homebrew channel installed with wad manager

    i used this guide as reference..
    http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...era-error.html

    just instead of 4.1 i used 4.2 system menu
    the wad i used was
    System Menu-NUS-v480.wad

    i used dop-me system menu to install the 4.2J System Menu..after that..i went back to dop-me..it says the system menu installed is 4.2J

    but then if i do a report..it still say my region is on North America (U) and i can launch NTSC-U disc from game channel..but unable to use back my NTSC-J discs

    and i'm still unable to access the Wii settings due to a wrong region firmware

    I can launch games through gecko..but I perfer to get back my Wii settings and change back to NTSC-J for my disc channel as well =(


    is there still any way to change it back?

    thanks

    Use </span>ARCmod06.zip to change your settings back to Japan and ensure you have a jap sm installed.

    Not sure what you've done but Wii Sports Resort comes with 3.4 on disc.

    Sounds like your Wii is set as USA now. You will need to look into Any Region Changer Mod to completely set your Wii to Japan region as it still sounds as if you have a nixture of regions on your Wii.

    EDIT: Just do as Maui says :P

    i'm pretty sure it is at 4.2U or something..

    since when i tried to reinstall the homebrew..the one below 4.1 doesn't work
    i had to use the 4.2 way

    for the mod..it says it installs 4.1

    i got the 4.1 and 4.2 system installer .wad for jap at my wad folder

    however..if my version really is 4.2U..will it brick further after it installs 4.1J?

    The question is, do you want it to be J (Jap), U (US) or E(Europe)?

    If you wish to go to 4.1 then you'll need to first make sure you have IOS60 v6174 (not v6400) installed or you really will brick. I'm not sure if ARC Mod will auto install it for you.

    ARC Mod will allow you to modify the region aspects of your Wii and install the relevant System Menu that you desire.
