Hello, problem with korean wii
Hello, I am Pablo, from Uruguay. New in all this of Wiis, bought console for my daughter.
1)Korean softmod' wii (no chip) that allows to play copies and shows english menues english (except from Weather channel -WC- that appears in Korean after clicking).
2) Only 3 black dots are shown when I look at settings (wrench icon). A semi-brick? Must be running on an US version I think, as I bought the console in Latam.
3) New US original Wii Sports Resort Disk asks for system upgrade (think it might not the "dreadful for Koreans" 4.2 system but not sure).
4)Not having wifi, I would like to make the upgrade from the WSR US disc.
5)The problem is that I bought the game and 2 WMPlus devices for my daughter’s birthday and she's quite dissapointed.
6) I care neither for the WC issue nor for the lack of setting information, but I would be grateful if someone can guide me in order to be able to play the WSR while maintaining the ability to play copies.
Thanks in advance

Hello Pablo and welcome to the wiihacks community.
You have joined the world’s largest Wii modding and forum community. To help you access the useful and relevant information available on this site, it is strongly recommended that you first look at this special site index: Wiihacks Ultimate Index.
Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii particularly useful. Make sure to either look through the site tutorials and guides or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-newbie-corner/.
Wiihacks also has a chat room on irc://irc.uicn.net/wiihacks . After reading the iRC rules, please feel free to join in the light-hearted chats and activities. While any IRC client can connect to #wiihacks on the UICN , there are tutorials to help you connect using either ChatZilla or mIRC.
If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.
If you cannot access Wii settings, then you have a semibricked Wii. As your Wii has no chip, but can play backups then the Wii is softmodded and those softmods will be overwritten by an update. I hope this guide to WSR can provide some help:http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...-resort-5.html . Enjoy your stay with us.
