Big Wii Mess!!
Hi i have a jap wii chipped with ATMEGA8L.
I changed the menus to UK and the region etc to UK using anyregion changer.
It all worked fine. Only then I couldn't boot up any disks only jap ones. my kid did a system update. and updated it to 4.1E
The wii was ok not semi-bricked or anything it is running 4.1E and IOS61 in the homebrew channel.
We tried to update the modchip with wiilkey 1.9 and set it to any region but it still will only play jap ones. (previously it used to play everything bt had jap menus!!)
We spend 5 days on the forums reading we decided to downgrade the system menu using the following but get errors on every one.
Cannot update with Trucha,
cannot update via CIOSrev8
cannot load any Wad for IOS updates
cannot run anyregion changer
canno run firmware downgrader
cannot run CIOS downgrader
Cannot run IOS downgrader
or CIOS36 rev10 installer.
everytime we try and change IOS or CIOS etc we just get error they all download but will not install.
HELP I am quite new and not sure what I am doing I have read so much on so many forums I don't know what I am doing now!
ANY STEPS I CAN TAKE IN EASY LANGUAGE WILL BE WELCOME!!
THANKS GUYS :-)
Thanks for the above that was great! I have now managed to downgrade the wii to 3.2e again. But still will not play any region disks, only jap ones unless I load up in gecko. But when I changed the wii back to jap again the ntsc games all boot up, so I have to keep it in jap for the games to boot, I cannot have it set up as 3.2e as games will not boot.
I did run the wiikey setup disk and changed it to any region but still will not boot up ntsc or pal games only jap. :-(
try using starfall for region free hacks :)
Yep worked - Fantastic!! now have a english wii which is playing NTSC and PAL games. Yippee you are Brill!!!!! Thanks Heaps
