Wii Shop Channel users- If you use the wii shop channel and intend to change the region, you must first go into the wii shop and delete your shop account prior to the region change. If you do not wish to delete your shop account you can not change the region of the shop channel, in this case leave the shop channel setting set to your current region in ARC mod6. If you do not delete the shop acount, you will be unable to access it following the region change of the shop settings.
