Never update a region changed Korean wii.
But if you did...
Here is a helpful little bit of information for anyone who has bricked a Korean wii by using the anyregion changer to make it play NTSC games. My friend here in Seoul brought me his wii because he bought a korean one and wanted it to play NTSC games. I had come across the anyregion changer when I was softmodding my NTSC wii to play backups. I got it to change the region to USA with the region changer, but not all of the system menu was in english, some of it was still in korean and parts of the system menu didnt appear at all. The screen would just turn white, however the will would now play NTSC games. Well upon trying to play Rock Band he was asked to update to 4.1.. bad idea. This caused the wii to become bricked. He brought it back to me, and after a small search in the computer shops I found a legit nintendo gc controller and tried the Nintendo Repair Disc, which didnt do crap. After about an hour of trying different repair discs I came across Zantzue's Anti-brick Disc. Burning this iso at 2x using Imgburn allowed me to boot into HBC. Once into homebrew channel I attempted to downgrade from 4.1U to 3.4U thinking this would fix the system menu, it didnt. Even after intalling the system menu for 3.4U it was still bricked. I found a semi-solution by installing.... wait for it... the PRELOADER!!!! Using the preloader I was able to stop the black screen from appearing. But wait, thats not all. You see, in order to play legal games, because he doesnt have a usb hard drive yet for me to copy all my backups for him, you have to use Gecko OS. I tried just running the disc from USBLoaderGX but it wouldnt load. Maybe I didnt have the settings correct, but I had already had a few beers and decided not to piss it off any more than it already was . So I installed Gecko OS on his sd card and viola~ with the default settings i was able to play any legit disc I put in the drive. And with USBLoader GX if i plug in my 120G drive, I was able to play any backup!
So there you have it. For those of you, and I know your out there, who have a bricked korean-to-ntsc wii. This is your fix:
1. Download Zantzue's Anti-brick Disc
2. Google the Wii Gamecube controller fix
3. Use the fix + disc to boot into HBC
(4.a) Downgrade if you want to or think it will help
4.b Use HBC to install Preloader
5. Install Gecko OS with HBC
Thats pretty much it. I would say install USBLoaderGX but installing it wont do anything because it puts a channel on the system menu. So instead just copy the dol to your sd card and run it in HBC to play backups. Use GeckOS to play legit discs.
I hope this helps someone
#1 - He tried to play the New Super Mario Bros. and it updated him to 4.2

I Bought a 3.1 K wii and i just updated it today to 4.0....
And oh yeah...its Converted to NTSC or maybe its just beacuse i used the wanikoko updater..
So I messed around with changing themes, I think this was what locked me out of the wii settings screen. I had to re download some files from NUS.
My wii is 4.2U btw, just bought a black wii a few wks ago. I changed around some things like Going to System Menu Hacks and enable 'Block Disc Updates'
It has been a while since Nintendo has released any updates. Now what I'm scared if there is a new update should I follow the remove all soft mod to make my Wii a virgin one before updating?
don't uninstall WADs that dont exist on your wii.
