    i)In TBR readme,it says that Trucha Bug Restorer expects these four wads:
    IOS15-64-v257.wad
    IOS15-64-v523.wad
    IOS36-64-v3351.wad
    IOS37-64-v3869.wad

    However,in ddanat's guide it only mentions IOS15 v257, IOS15 v523 and IOS36 v3351.
    Isn't the IOS36 v3869 necessary?
    You only need it if you're going to mess with IOS37, but we don't need to mess with IOS37 so I didn't mention downloading it in the howto. As an inadvertent affect, it helps me notice who reads everything and who doesn't

    Is it possible with this guide to change my 'wii shop region',even though I updated to firmware 4.2.from Nintendo?
    Any advice will be much appreciated.
    Yes, if you look at some of the more recent previous posts, you'll see how it can be done. The difference in how you get the shop channel working now is different than how it used to be done. Before you could just change a setting and it worked. Nowadays you have to disassociate the Wii from the Wii shop servers then change the region of the shop channel and it'll then reassociate itself. I assume the shop channels work on some-what independent servers that don't necessarily check if a Wii was already registered to another region, but if you have the Wii not have a "history" with another region, it works.

    I wouldn't try doing this several times, though. Putting it back to the original region may not work since you literally have to enter in the serial number of the Wii for the disassociation. If you're just looking to get it working for where you live and don't plan on changing it back though, I wouldn't worry. I've done it with a US to EU Wii and it works great.

    Yes, I have changed my region from Japan to US. But I didn't have any points in my account. My system was new. I have a 2000 card but haven't put them in yet. I don't think I'd change the region again while I have points in the store. I'm not sure but I think you will lose them.

    You have to be very careful when doing this stuff. I was lucky not to brick because the step assume that you are already connected to the internet and that you have a basic understanding of how these apps work. I didn't. And it caused a lot of confusion fro me and explaining myself to those that did know what they were doing. My system is set the the US region and I'm going to leave it there. I can use Gecko to play my Import Resident Evil game if I choose.

    Good luck.

    Yes, you will most definitely lose them. The only off-chance that you won't lose them is if they're connected to your email address, but I still doubt that they'd be saved even then.

    This IS a very complicated process which took me, to be honest, a few months to fully grasp. You weren't all that lucky though. You had some guidance that knew what was less likely to brick ya Besides, you dun good. I'm proud of you =)

    Thanks for your information,I found it very interesting
    But before I make my PAL Wii "NTSC",I need to know one more thing:
    Is there any loss of quality (for video output) when a NTSC Wii plays PAL games,or vice-versa?

    simple :)

    hey buddy,forget all of the solutions. create the hbc(homebrew channel) if you dont have. you can create it by bannerbomb.after that, use the program gecko os, and launch your game from it. by that,you can easily play all of the ntsc /pal games without region problem.it also has "002 fix" option for player to not deal with 002 problem.Gecko OS - WiiBrew link for gecko os
    but i think you have already solved your problem. anyway,those who have the region problem can use this solution as an alternative and simple way

    So, here I am with a 4.2J Wii. Apart from the HBS I have no extra channels or cIOS installed. Worse, I have no NAND backup of anything.

    In order to avoid upgrading my Wii by mistake in the future, is there any functional way to change my Wii's region to US or Europe?

    Here I found a post that seems to indicate that it's possible but I don't feel very sure
    -- Wii System Update 4.2 Mega Topic --


    Thanks a lot

    Thumbs up This worked!

    1. Ran the updated 4.2 compatible version of Trucha Bug Restorer MOD from PowerWii
    2. Picked IOS36, downgraded IOS15
    3. Picked IOS15, patched IOS36 to slot 36 and 236
    4. Restored IOS15
    5. Ran Any region changer (latest from Wiibrew)
    6. Picked Europe and set all relevant options but NOT downgrade 3.2 (as mentioned already by everyone don NOT do this you will BRICK).
    7. Launched WAD Manager (1.4 in this case but don`t matter) and installed the system menu 4.2E as downloaded from NUS.
    8. Re-installed Priiloader as hacks.ini now void as changed to a different region. Enabled required hacks etc from System menu Hacks option.

    Rebooted, checked everything and now i have a fully running JAP 4.2J to 4.2E conversion. Please ensure you have downloaded all required wads before carrying out the mod, all info on this can be found with the TBA MOD app etc.

    Thanks guys for a great thread and of course thanks to WiiHacks for providing what is the holy grail of Wii mod sites

    Cheers,
    I followed this method and it worked!

    Thanks!!

    Dear All,

    could you tell all the software name, or where can I load that, that I can use for each step. because of now.. the name of software have come out for many version. atleast, tell me the name and version of software at the head/title when it run And, it's very very ok.. if you attached the snap-shot or captured text for in each step.

    Regards

    Thank you very much ddanat for your test and proving in changing of system menu 4.2J to 4.2x
    (I've changed from 4.2J, bought from Taiwan on 13/04/2010, it comes with 4.2J and the wii remote+motion plus, bundle with Wii Sport Resort version)

    I follow the post at #1, it's okay.

    I use NUSD, run NUSD_v14Beta.exe from PC, loaded from "http://wiibrew.org/wiki/NUS_Downloader" or directly from "http://s.lukegb.com/nusdv14" to download :
    -Database... -> IOS -> IOS 15 -> v257 and select option Pack -> WAD, I got IOS15-64-v257.wad .
    -Database... -> IOS -> IOS 15 -> v523 and select option Pack -> WAD, I got IOS15-64-v523.wad .
    -Database... -> IOS -> IOS 36 -> v3351 and select option Pack -> WAD, I got IOS36-64-v3351.wad .
    -I copy all three wads to root of SD-Card, but I use download online from NUS -_-, so the above didn't used

    I use TBR version 1.11 from "http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=165453" or "directly from http://www.mediafire.com/?kzojozjmxtj"

    And finally I use Dop-IOS MOD v9 come from any wii-hacked package.

    It's works for me !! for my new wii machine.

    Hi, i have read this guide about 10 times until it made some sort of sense (which i highly recommend doing) and then took the plunge and gave it a go.

    BTW, i had a 4.2J wii with a D2C Key already installed.

    I used NUSD to download the IOS files, but looks like you can use Truncha Bug Signa (think thats what its called) to download them for you once in the menu on the wii? Not sure if it is advisable though!

    When i used NUSD, i had to set the region first. I used Europe, not sure if it matters what region you use, didn't for me?

    When you load Truncha Bug Signa (TBS), it doesn't say downgrade IOS15 to v 257, just says downgrade IOS15 and then on the next menu it will say its downgrading from 'a version i cannot remember' to v 257

    Make sure you use TBS 1.11 if you have 4.2 menu as earlier versions of TBS won't work with menu 4.2.

    After doing the IOS stuff with TBS, my Homebrew Channel went upside down (quite common i do believe), i just used it like that, didn't seem to make a difference (apart from the obvious, controls back to front). Need to reinstall it to put it back to normal.

    I have internet access but couldn't use DOP IOS to download 4.2E menu, had to use NUSD and then i used WAD Manager 1.4 to install.

    Installed Priiloader, was a breeze and a very good app. Can skip the health warning at the beginning now, that is so annoying.

    Anyway, went like a charm (apart from initially using the wrong version of TBS) and now i have menu 4.2E installed. Previously i had to patch my NTSC-U games to work on my Jap console, no need to do that anymore and they are still running fine.

    Maybe someone can confirm this, but when putting apps into their folders, the dol file needs to be called boot.dol otherwise the homebrew channel will not see it, e.g.
    /apps/TBS/Truncha_Signer.dol wont work
    /apps/TBS/boot.dol will work

    Only thing is (and this happened when i upgraded to 4.2 from 3.2), the disc channel cannot read the disks, but neogamma reads them fine. If i start the console with a disc or put a disc in when not in neogamma, it says it cannot read the disc and i need to eject, switch off and refer to the manual.
    Anyone know what is causing this (the 4.2 upgrade i'm assuming as it was fine before)?
