I know if you region change 4.2K to 4.2U for example, you will permanently brick with 003 error. Do not change the region on a K unit if @ 4.2, period.
Any known or have tested on 4.2K to 4.2X ?
It will be bricked to 003 error? like as update from internet?
or we can use this method for 4.2K ?
And the method of this topic in changing the region from 4.2K. It still be brick as well? This method not modifed IOS70? so, then the system menu 4.2U caused the #003 error, right? Ok.
And 4.2K changed to 4.2E, is it okay? Anyone have tested?
Korean wii + ios70-v6687 + SM 4.2u/e/j = error: 003 unauthorized device has been detected
Change to 4.1u/e/j
patch ios60 to install as ios70-v (>6687)

And use the WAD Manager (I used 1.5) to install all above that I've deleted.
Next, I goto Wii Setting menu... to Read and Accept the Agreement for online. (no need to update---no need to downloading a EULA, becuase I manual install EULA WAD already). So, just read and Accept.
And re-check for WiiConnect24 Menu to On. After this, I can use shop channel, news and weather channel in English language.
Not any good at soldering so it's not worth the risk. I have read elsewhere that i need to install DarkCorp to get the disc channel to work.
Is there any point having the mod chip in there still? If i cut all the wires will i muck something up?
changing the region of modchips is just "short/open a few jumpers", no big deal with soldering works.
rather than cutting all the wirings fm chip to dvd-rom. DarkCorp is compatible with the modchip retained (correct me, if wrong)
But, for changing the region it use only 2 solder pads. you may need a solder sucker tools to suck the lead out. Then you solder it again.. if you're lucky, you may need only one pad change. if you change to Euro as my brother.. I think you need to change 2 pads. (from japanese)
I think the opening the cover until your find the solder-pad-region point is easier than you re-solder them. If you can open the will out.. I think, it's not hard for you The pad size is not too small to dealing with, when compare with the pin of chip on board.
I know may be a few months behind. but i have 1 question. i previously modded my wii that has the 4.2u update. took some time and some serious java since im a nube at this but i used it as my guenie pig. my question is that when i modded the wii i mad a nand backup can i use that nand backup to just restore a wii that is not from my region so i can convert it to read US games. the wii im trying to convert is has the letters (AU) on the side instead of (US). and also their is no color, just black & white. any help will be appreciated.
