4.2 System Menu, Wasabi Zero, and Imports
I recently 'upgraded' to the 4.2U system menu and I'm having problems now reading PAL discs on my NTSC Wii. I tried patching them, and no luck. NTSC-U discs still read fine. It can't be Trucha discs, as I went through the process of fixing that inconvenience.
I noticed people were having similar problems with the DriveKey and I wanted to know if other people were having similar issues and if anyone had gotten it fixed. Should I just downgrade to 4.1U? Will new games such as New Super Mario Bros work on it?
As far as i remember, 4.2 killed region free support on all chips. I could be wrong though.
