    Region questions...

    Ok, i got a nintendo wii 3.1j, with drivekey (probaly, the most recent)... And I heard that there's a region block, so I used a patch for change region of 2 games (muramasa the demon blade: PAL to ntsc-j; Mario Galaxy: NTSC-U to NTSC-J)... And i set in the modchip menu to block all disk updates... So when I put the game, his icon appears, but when i start, there's appear only a black screen... Hmm anyone could help me? I'm 99% sure that isn't a bad recording, I'm using sony and tried to burn in 3x and 4x, and the problem still the same... Btw, the man who installed my chip, said that my chip don't make my wii region free, but in the chip setup, the option "region override" is on... So he's a human donkey or what?? O.o ... I really can't use the region patch with the region override or what?

    Edit: after search a little in the forum, I found in this topic http://www.wiihacks.com/drivekey/157...-drivekey.html that my black screen problem can be solved by runing a disk update of my region... So, should i download an recent game from my region and update it? I'm downloading tales of grace (J), so is there some problem if I run updates of my region with this chip? And if I do disk update, it'll make my 3.1j be like 4.2j? I heard that if I update for a recent firmware, the chip lost his ability "region override", Is that true??

    if you update from a back up theres always the danger the update has been taken out. your wii will be partially bricked if theres no update on the disk.
