    After update

    I installed a wiikey 2 and recently decided to update the firmware for it, and after doing so I also updated the Wii. I now find I cant play the NTSC versions that I already had. My system is PAL and previously I use to be able to play both PAL and NTSC's.

    Which update made this happen? And is there any software I could use to make downloaded games region free before I burn them?

    wiibrickblocker has nothing to do with changing region. All wiibrickblocker does is removes the update partition on a game.
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    Yes I read it, and I will use it in the future.

    As I have updated to version 4.2E, can I still do the 4.2 hack and play games from sd card etc?
