    if they were PAL in the first place, long as you said "Yes" to using the whole setting.txt file in the formatter, it will stay as PAL. I do this all the time and it doesnt just randomly jump to NTSC from PAL.

    The only way it would change from PAL to NTSC is if you said no... which was wrong.

    http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...-your-wii.html

    complete tutorial.

    If the Wii's are PAL and you want to keep them that way, download E formatter from that tutorial and make sure you say YES to using the serial and the setting.txt, this will keep what ever region the wii is currently set to after the format.

    Did you backup the NAND of this first Wii before you formatted it? if so, restore the nand backup, then format again saying YES to both options.

    If you didnt back it up, use the formatter in Erikies first post in this thread, it wont save the serial number from your Wii (older version of the formatter) but it does default the region to E/PAL.

    It doesnt work, I've already tested it.

    It seems that the file permissions on setting.txt get messed up by the formatter (any version).

    I'm looking at editing it, so the setting.txt is copied to SD card (and therefore keeping your serial), then use the app you linked to put it back after the format.

    in that case, the current nand is blank/corrupt. I take it you erased the nand completely when you were inserting bootmii as boot2? I do a compare and update on the first blocks, which means you get bootmii working and you should have the setting.txt available.

    Anyway, extract this formatter and run it from bootmii instead of the one in the tutorial (but use wad folder from other one), then once its done update from a 4.1E game and you will be sorted.
