    Do you have to install system menu 4.1?

    Also what options do you have to change in ARC to get the region and no brick

    Can i also get a link for Needs a patched cios with ES-Identify and Trucha

    Hello
    I have followed instructions and have softmodded my wii (original 4.2U)
    And have region-changed it to 4.1J because I needed to connect to the Japanese shop to buy points to use for Joysound
    I have reinstalled Priiloader and enabled the block online/disc updates but the shop is still telling me that I have to update
    I've tried searching but it doesn't look like anyone has the same problem as me
    Also, the region-free option doesn't seem to work either since Neogamma is not reading my USA games saying "Region Error!" in red on a black screen
    The main reason I needed to region-change is to buy points for Joysound, other than that, I would be happy just having a US wii that plays my Japanese games
    Thanks in advance

    There is a guide to update the shop channel to the latest version, you just install the shop wad and 2 ios wads. As for the error with neogamma, that is interesting. I would have another look at your region settings. Open any region changer again and ensure all region settings are set to the jap default. Really I don't think that any of the region settings should affect neogamma, since it patches everything on the fly and is independent of the system menu. Interesting issue. Running a syscheck may help, perhaps neogamma is having some issue determining what region the wii is and what to patch the game as.

    Another test which may help would be to load bootmii, make a new nand backup. Then check that nand.bin with nandbincheck
    Code:
    nandbincheck nand.bin -all -v
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/97...Nand_Tools.zip from the command line shell prompt.

    Post the syscheck results, the nandbincheck and the current settings in any region changer. I will try my best to help. Updating the shop channel and the 2 ios should fix the update prompt from shop, done via wad via the guide for that.

    I have updated the shop channel and it seems to be working fine now!

    For some reason, I couldn't load bootmii via HBC (Launch Bootmii within the Home key after launching HBC)
    I can add that I was trying to load a backup disc (since the original was giving us problems being a bit overused, another reason to softmod)
    Both the disc and bootmii were working before I changed the region
    Thanks again!

    Untrue in the case of mauifrog. Unlike your average user, the post is visible to him. That being said, I have manually approved it. Posts from users with < 5 posts that have an external link get automatically moderated.

    I see, thank you, I made that post just because I couldn't see it myself and was afraid it was missed not knowing mauifrog would still be able to see it

    Everything in your syscheck and ARC settings looks as it should. I have know idea why you would be having an issue with neogamma. Perhaps try another game, or in neogamma patch the language setting to match that of the disc, like english. It could just be that the game does not like the jap language and the game give this region error.

    You could try to set the region setting again, just load ARC and set all settings to USA and save. Then set all settings to jap and save, perhaps there is a small issue with the settings. Or, since you have the channel you want, you could change it back to USA.

    You could also format your sd card and try a fresh install of neogamma.

    Or you could try USB loading
