Remove region lock
Okay so I am a complete Newbie! I brought a Wii in the US and recently got a game from Dubai and the region lock stops me from playing it! :'( I know I have to soft mod it or whatever but I really can't. So do any of you know any other method? Please tell me :'( Thanks
No other method that I know of. If you want it to have functionality that it doesn't have out of the box, you'll have to mod it.
Hardly Lounge material, moved out into newbie section.
It's impossible by definition. A softmod is a software modification. You want to remove the region lock, which is a software modification, wihout doing any software modification.
Try to load gecko os http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Gecko_OS
With wilbrand http://goo.gl/h3CbS
Just get your mac address from the wii settings and put it into the wilbrand launcher, make the expliot. Don't bundle the hackmii installer. Put the private folder made for wilbrand on sd:\
Then put the boot.dol from gecko os on sd:\
Put the sd card into your wii and go to the message board, find the wilbrand message (day before I think), click on it and load the boot.dol.
If that works you should be able to load out of region disc.
If that does not work use modmii to setup a casper sneek/uneek setup that supports your needs. That would also let your run the out of region disc.
This can all be done without modifying the wii.
