I am attempting to change my Jpn Wii to USA region. On this step:
I followed the steps to the T, but the MISMATCH error message doesn't go away. Does that mean the region switch was unsuccessful? I don't want to get my system into a bricked state. I double checked all the settings above the system menu 4.1 installer section are correctly set to the USA region, but the MISMATCH error message continues to stay at the top, unless I revert back to the original region of Jpn.From the HBC-
Select IOS236 - press A
Read the WARNING- press 1
You will see this error at the top screen "WARNING: AREA: SysMenu MISMATCH!"
This means your semi-bricked- which we are going to fix.
Use the wiimote, go down to-"system menu 4.1 installer"
Select "System Menu Region"
Change the region to USA (or Europe or Jap or KOREAN)
Go down to "Auto set from System Menu Region" -Press A
"WARNING: AREA: SysMenu MISMATCH!" error will go away, make sure it goes away
Do not install system menu 4.1
Verify that your settings are correct
Exit to the Homebrew Channel(do not restart)
HBC will loads
I just realized that I was suppose to install the USA modpack if I wanted the system to end up a USA region wii. How should I got about fixing this? Can I just start from WAD INSTALL step and overwrite everything, or will that screw things up? Thanks for the quick help!

I've just ordered my wii and I will get it next week, I just want to know to know two things
1. After following all the steps do I've to keep the sdcard plugged in at all time? or can I just use my pen drive (I'm intending to use my pen drive for playing games)
2. As I dont have Wii as of now how can I know what region my WII is? I've ordered online so I dont know. here is what it says on the site

Wii Remote Plus Controller ( X 1), Nunchuk Controller ( X 1)

btw Hi its my 1st post here on WIIHACKS hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
You dont need an sd card in full time. You'll likely find a pendrive is inadequate quickly, but as long as its compatible and formatted to fat32, you can put both games and apps on it. Your wii's region corresponds to your region. If you're in usa, it will be U. England (et al) E.
Thanks to PEIRE for the awesome signature
