    Please help me! I have a Jap Wii with an old D2Ckey that is semi-bricked. I downloaded and burned the "wii-system-menu-update-JAP-v288-repad" file, but my system does not pick it up. I've used different discs including Verbarim, Memorex, and Phillips with no luck.

    Edit: I tried again with a Phillips DVD+R disc and burned at 1x and everything works! Woohoo!

    I semi-bricked my Jap Wii while trying to play Wii Sports Resort. Tried using the v288 repad and it didn't work. All i saw was a black screen with Jap writing and one particular English work; "OFF"... so im not sure what to do and not sure if it has a modchip. I don't know what firmware version im on but i can still play the Wii Sports.

    Hello here's my first post. The reason is my son's wii is semi bricked, a Pal version which he tried loading Wii Sports Resort. My question is why is the repad's not working there appears to be an awful lot of people having no or little success. If I sound ungrateful for the software being available then I appologise, the people that write these are obviously very talented. But why are they not working? I have tried the usual different dvd at different speeds using different software but still no luck, The wii just does not recognise any disks is there no further information regading this problem?
    Thanks.

    You set a different region firmware in custom IOS downgrader. You must now run this program again and select the right region.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
