Wow! Really easy, thanks a lot mauifrog. I did this before, a couple of years ago on 3.2K and another Wii. It was much more complicated.
Only a few issues I'm running into now:
1. Korean games won't load from disc channel, but work fine from Neogamma. I set region free in priiloader, so I'm not sure why it's not working.
2. Shopping channel is asking me to update my Wii in order to use it. No chance of that...
3. Mii Channel is still in Korean.
Also, I installed cIOS80-v6174.wad as per your instructions in your tutorial about not bricking my wii.
2- You only need to update the shop channel and the ios it uses, you can also to this with wiimod. However, if you already had a shop acount in the korean region, you would need to delete that account first.
3- You can install the Mii channel for your region, and delete the korean mii channel and any other korean channels. Use wiimod and go to the advanced menu, any title manager. The channels are under "system channels", delete all unwanted channels, it is safe to delete all if you like. Don't mess with "system titles", this is ios and system menu and you could brick the wii if you delete the wrong stuff in there, but "system channels" is safe to remove. You should be able to identify the kor channels by there title id, it has been awhile, but I believe they end in K.
Again, thanks for that help. Everything works like a charm. Wii Mod is one heck of a useful program!
Hi, did the "softmod any wii" guide on a JPN 001 LJH1 wii, then used this guide to change it to a USA console. Worked perfectly, thanks!
I just have one question, in the softmod guide i was told to make a Nand backup (CH 1 - Part 3). Now, should i keep that first Nand backup or it is completely useless and i have to make a new Nand backup because the region was changed?
Hi i followed the soft mod any wii guide.. its now working..BIG THANKS! now i want to change my console to NTSC-U im coming from 4.3e
main reason is my TV only supports NTSC output =(
if i followed this guide.. will it also change the version to 4.3u? or just 4.1? or maybe can i just change only the video output to NTSC and leave everything the same.?
BIG THANKS AGAIN
I LOVE YOU MAUIFROG!!!!!!!!!!!
But yeah, anyway. :P
So I bought a copy of Harvest Moon: AWL (gamecube) off of Amazon; turned out it was NTSC. My wii is PAL, so I was pretty annoyed. -_-
I softmodded the Wii for the purpose of playing this one game (too cheap to fork out the money for another one, heh..). And now I can play it!
Woot! But since the disc was pretty old and starting to look fishy, I ripped the game (as an iso) to my sd card and backed it up onto my P.C.
I've tested the iso on Dolphin emulator, and it works. I've been looking around and have seen how it is possible to play GC backups off of a USB
HDD (I have a 80gb I've never used). I decided that would be awesome.
So my questions are: will this region change guide let me play the NTSC iso? Is it even necessary to change the region to do this(I have enabled the
region free GC games with preloader)?
AND THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING SO EPICLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a Wii 4.2J NTSC softmoded and i can play all the games i have inside my HDD but with "Just Dance 4" i tried to download some music but it's unable even with DLC hack installed.
So i decided to follow some steps wich i found around this thread but no luck.
I made the region changes with "ARC_mod06" to: English, USA, NTSC and installed System Menu 4.1U.
Installed and reinstalled Shop Channel also the Agreement was accepted.
But now i have the error code: 205958 when i try to access Wii Shop Channel and error code: 205625 when tried to access the Store inside Just Dance 4.
If i back to Japan settings i can access the Shop Channel normally but i never logged with user/pass there so i don't have any account registered.
I don't know what i need to do to make it works.
Anyone has any idea to help me?
The wii has a jap shop account which must be deleted prior to region changing.
