Instead of trying to fix this issue think this way
As you are probably aware Nintendo wii update 4.2 has now region blocked all of their wii world wide with an update that was forced on everyone. I own my wii I beleive that if I want to make it region free that it be my choice, so I can purchase games from overseas legitimately. After the update all of my software games from the USA won't play. Is this legal and do I have a case. Imagine after buying a DVD player getting it region free then the manufacturer decides to block it with firmware like Nintendo did. They stated that it was to stop some program called homebrew and pirated software, in fact all it targeted was region free. They told no one about the consequences of the update they forced it on everyone, without the update the nintendo channel and shop channel would not function.
There is no licence to nintendo you just purchase the Nintendo console. I got my region freed when I purchased it from heatmovie it came with legitimate games from the USA the only thing Nintendo implied was that if any person modded the wii to region free it would void the warranty that is all.
It can complicate, or entirely prevent, legitimate enjoyment of works and products which were legally obtained in a different region. (e.g. Purchased while travelling, given/sent as gifts, or brought when moving internationally.)
It allows items to be launched at different times in different places, so eager customers in some countries must wait for the items to be sold locally instead of importing them sooner.
Thousands of works are exclusively released to one single region and, if locked, become permanently unattainable by legally-minded consumers, with no monetary benefit even to the media producers.
It allows price-discrimination, which may be illegal in some countries.
It presents a barrier to free trade, which may be illegal in some areas such as the European Union. Since the accession of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia there are two regions in the European Union, restricting trade in the bloc. This state of affairs has yet to be challenged in court.
Allows market control which may violate anti trust laws in some countries.
Localisation may be unsatisfactory to the consumer for the work. (e.g. Inferior dubbing or voice-acting, mistranslation and misrepresentation of cultural contexts, inferior or less desirable soundtracks, missing features, complete unavailability of the original language, outright censorship, unoriginal format.)
Regions inevitably isolate some cultures and language groups from others, forbidding the educationally minded from using works from other regions to learn more about that region's languages or cultures.
Regional lockout may actually promote copyright infringement, software cracking,modding, and product pirating as it may make the 'official' version of a product seem less desirable due to the restrictions placed on it.
The term Fried Gold is often used to refer to the release or substantially greater extras available in one country compared to another, this is often true of cult movies and TV series, or films that have different rights owners in different regions.
Now lets class action these fools
i think you make sense my lawyer friend... but you still can play region freed games
Bootmii will need to be reinstalled after the upgrade though, correct?
--u apply hackmii_v0.5 b4 upgrade, bootmii be fine.
And if I make a NAND backup I should be able to roll back to 4.1, correct?
