    NTSC-J semi-brick help please :)

    Hi

    I managed to semi-brick my NTSC-J Wii. It had system menu 3.4J previously. It's also modded with an original Wiikey (old school I know )

    How do I recover it? I don't have HBC as I'm still reading up on the world of soft-modding. Does loading HBC and other apps help in this situation?

    Another thing, how does one change the menu to English? Everything is in JAP which probably lead to the confusion when I inadvertently accepted an update from a NTSC-U disc.

    Some n00b friendly advice would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Don't tell me you updated with NSMB right? and yes homebrew channel would have helped massively.

    Metroid Prime Corruption NTSC-US version.

    Been a long day and didn't take notice of the JAP message asking if I want to update.

    Going to try an ISO off coderetard.com. It's originally from hackmii.com.

    If it sorts it out then I'm definately going to add HBC to the console so that I have a NAND backup too.

    As mentioned previously, can one change the menu to English or is that only restricted to region changing like on Korean Wii's?

    Not sure about the English thing without switching your Wii to USA through nayregionchanger homebrew software. Maybe someone else knows about changing the language displated while retaining the Wii's national identity.

    Metroid Prime corruption comes with a really old System Menu of 2.1 so I can't figure why it updated you. Metroid Prime Trilogy however comes with 3.4.

    Using a copy of New Super Mario Brothers JAP version would fix your Wii I think as it would install 4.1J.

    Hi

    Will look into that. Will importing a recent original JAP game be best to get newer firmware do you think?

    Don't have access to fast, unlimited Internet as of yet so it's going to be a mission to get hold of an ISO.

    Thanks for the advice!

    UPDATE:

    Took my Wii in to a local console repair shop. They're going to un-brick it and change the region from NTSC-J to PAL and also install HBC and re-program the Wiikey v1 mod-chip.

    I'll let yall know once I have the console back so that I can soft-mod it further
