    Need some help changing region on FW4.2J

    Hi, I recently ordered a black wii from Japan, and as of yet I cannot find a guide(that doesn't make me feel like I'm about to do something stupid) that can help me change the region on it from 4.2j to 4.2U. I have softmodded it using the very useful 4.2 guide on here. However, like I said, no luck with the region change. Thanks for any help you can give!

    First follow the 4.2 guide linked below.

    When your done with that guide, use any region changer to change your setting your USA, then use Dop-Ios-Mod to install system menu 4.2u.
    Then use dop-ios-mod to install any USA channels, then use any title deleter DB to delete and jap channels.

    Use ios249
    Dop-ios-mod
    ARCmod06_Offline.zip
    Any Title deleter db

    Well, changing the region from J to U is pretty safe, but take the warning to heart. If you are not willing to accept and live with the possibility of permanently bricking your wii, you should probably leave it as it is. Anyway, after you read that warning, you push A I believe.

    I'll be happy to walk you through it, but I make no guarantees.

    oh, and as a side question, how long after donating does it take to get a 'donator' thing to your account? This site has been very helpful to a few of my friends and so far to me as well and i thought i could help out, but i didn't get a thing after i donated...i paid good money for that banner! lol

    Ok put these 3 apps on your sd-card and setup up for HBC launch
    Dop-ios-mod
    ARCmod06_Offline.zip
    Any Title deleter db

    It should look like
    sd:\app\dop-ios-mod\boot.dol
    sd:\app\Any title deleter\boot.dol
    sd:\app\ARCmod\boot.dol

    Make sure you enable the wii's wifi

    First, load ARC
    Use ios249
    Accept the nasty warning by pressing 1
    We will edit the region settings only
    Set:
    Language setting: English
    Console Area setting: USA
    Game Region Setting: USA
    Console Video Mode: NTSC - be sure your tv supports this, If it does not I guess you can leave it at pal (?)

    Country Codes: 49
    Services EULA: read

    Then
    Save settings
    Goto the bottom, exit to HBC
    You will probably get a warning about system setting mismatch. That is normal.

    Next load Dop-Ios-Mod
    Use ios249
    Install ios70 with patches
    Install system menu 4.2u
    Install USA channels
    Remove stubbed ios

    Then load any title deleter db
    Delete your duplicate jap channels
    Don't delete anything else

    Reinstall priiloader

    You'll get your banner. Someone has to go in and add it manually I think. Mine took a day, maybe two.
