    drivekey 2.0, 4.2u and pal titles

    Hi,

    I have a factory 4.2u ntsc console received as a gift from a friend in Canada, modded with drivekey 2.0 and dvd pcb replaced, but I'm living in Europe (Romania to be specific).

    I've searched a lot in the forum, and I've found only partial advices on the subject, but I wasn't able to find a "this is how I solved it" post on this subject. Most of advices are finished with "live with that".
    I understood that practically I need to softmod the console, even it is already hardmodded, if I really want the pal games to work.

    Considering the fact that here I'm able to find almost exclusively pal titles, I really need an advice about the best solution for making my console regionfree.
    So, if anyone could give an advice about this topic (maybe even a step-by-step tutorial dedicated to 4.2 genuine consoles hardmodded with drivekey 2.0, considering that after 4.2 release, I think there are a lot of users like me) I would be very grateful.

    Thanks,

    Your drive key isn't worth squat when it comes to out of region games as 4.2 killed that feature. u need to softmod with one of the 4.2 softmod guides in the guides and tutorials section linked below.

    Thank you Pob, yes, I've understood that, what I would need to understand is:

    1. The softmod does not interfere with drivekey in any way? What method of softmod for a console with drivekey is recomended ?
    2. It is better to remove the drivekey ?
    3. Did someone with drivekey installed, already did this kind of softmod with success ?

    Thanks,

    Yes its fine to softmod with the drivekey installed - Just use Messies or shadows guide both r equally good
    No need to remove drivekey they can work in tandem
    I think Tealc has drivekey and softmod working in tandem and i softmodded a friends wii with a wii key modchip in.

    In my opinion the only way to play the wii is softmod via usb loading.

    hope this helps u out.
