    What are the steps to run AnyRegion Changer?

    Here's what I have:

    - Korean Wii running official Nintendo v3.3K
    - D2Pro chip (unknown firmware)
    - Backups successfully running
    - Homebrew channel installed

    I understand that if I don't use the AnyRegion Changer properly I can seriously damage my Wii. If I do change my Wii to a non-Korean region (I'd be looking to change it permanently to N. American NTSC), are there any permanent/long-term damages that can result (assuming that I've done everything correctly)? If I convert it to NTSC, will I be able to play original N. American games, or will I still have to load games N.American games through Gecko's?

    I'm thinking about changing from Korean to NTSC-U, and would like to know what the official steps are with a modchip in the equation, specifically the D2Pro.

    The only thing that I know I need to do is boot up the AnyRegion Changer in Homebrew channel, and start the program. What do I need to do before this? Do I need to update firmware/system files for the new region once I've changed the region over to NTSC-U?

    If its the D2Pro9 then it is already region freeand so nothing would need to be done.

    I'm not familiar with how the region settings worked on the older D2Pro, I would suggest PM SpyMan, he would would know for sure.

    I have this same Version (3.3k) of the Korean Wii. It doesn't have a chip in it. I opened one up and checked. I haven't installed anything on it but it already has Gamma Loader, HBC Beta 9, Softmod Channel and USB Gecko right out of the box. I have already bricked/semi-bricked a Korean Wii just like this one.

    What I need to know Is how to change the language on these Wii's without bricking them. The Brick happened when I changed the settings in ARC 1.1b. I changed everything to USA and the Language to English. I let it install 3.2U and it start the process. I waited until it said "Press any key to Continue" and after that it reboots. When It reboots the Health and warning screen comes on, and prompts you to press "A". Once I press "A", the warning and health screen starts to faded out then it just freezes up. You have to power on an off to get out of the screen but it will only revert to the same scenario.

    How do I prevent this from happening? I purchsed a few of these for late Christmas presents for my kids and I have already bricked one. I don't want to brick the other 2 I have left. Some one please help. Thanks in advance.
