    How to Decrypt & Re and re-encrypt WII ISO's?

    Does anyone have a guide on how to do this? The reason I want to try this is that I have a number of Korean Wii games and I want to use with USB Loader GX.

    However the WBFS tool crashes with a fatal error every time I browse to a Korean ISO file. I have only been able to find the following reference to this on:

    WBFS Manager - View Issue #1793: Supporting Korean region titles

    Supporting Korean region titles

    Description
    I can't add Korean region titles.
    Their partitions are encrypted with Korean-key( not common-key).

    I guess WBFS Manager always decrypt partitions with common-key.

    If I decrypt a Korean-title partitions with Korean-key and re-encrypt them with common-key, I can add the image to the list of WBFS Manger.


    As you can see this refers to decrpting and re-encrypting with the "common key" to solve this problem.

    Unfortunetly I have no idea on how to do this and have been unable to find any clear explanation either after some searching?

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Try to open the KOR iso in wiiscrubber using the Korean common key. Right click on the game partition and save unencrypted. Then close wiicrubber and open the iso again with wiicrubber using the normal common key. Right click on the game partition (displayed as bad) and load the unencryped partition you saved. Delete the update and/or installer partion. Then load into wbfs manager.

    Extract these to separate folders
    KOR-wiiscrubber.zip
    wiiscrubber.zip

    Hey mauifrog! Thanks for the advice.

    I tried as you said but I ended up with the same problem in WBFS. However, I am not sure am I using the wiiscrubber programme correctly.

    Here is what I did:

    1. Downloaded and extracted the files from each of the links you provided to seperate folder called KOR and Non-KOR respectively.

    2. In the KOR folder there are 3 files:

    WIIscrubber.exe
    key.bin
    kkey.bin

    When I start WIIscrubber I get the following message:

    "Doesn't seem to be the correct key.bin.
    Do you want to use anyways??"

    I clicked "Yes" and the followed the rest of your instructions.

    3. In the Non-KOR folder there are two files:

    WIIscrubber.exe
    MakeKeyBin.exe

    First time I try to start WIIscrubber I get the error "Unable to open key.bin"

    After running MakeKeyBin and click on generate another two files are created:
    key.bin
    kkey.bin

    WIIscrubber can then be started. When I open the ISO file the game partition is displayed as bad as you say. I follow the rest of your instructions.

    Am I missing something with the key.bin files? Should I be renaming kkey.bin to key.bin at the first stage?

    thanks again.....

    Hi mauifrog, I guess you haven't had any progress on this issue yet. I have tried to contact the original poster from the link I posted in the first post on this topic. I will let you know if I hear anything back.

    I have not made any progress. I don#t understand the trouble, but when you try to extract the partition as unencrypted, it does not unencrypt. I am still messing with it, but have been busy.

    That was a pain in the ass, but it is not that difficult (after much time wasted)

    Guide: How to add Korean game iso to usb.
    Download-
    iospatcher-1.1.zip
    wiiscrubber pack.zip
    KOR-wiiscrubber.zip

    Extract iospatcher-1.1.zip and wiiscrubber pack.zip to \wiicrubber or other
    Extract KOR-wiiscrubber.zip to \wiiscrubber\kor-wiiscrubber

    Open \wiiscrubber\kor-wiiscrubber\wiiscrubber.exe
    Click Yes to "Doesn't seem to be the correct key.bin. Do you want to use anyways??"
    Click "Load ISO"
    Open your Korean game iso
    Expand Partition 1- DATA
    Right click on partition.bin and extract

    Open \wiicrubber\WiiPartitionBinChanger.exe
    In the lower left corner, click "load" Select partition.bin from above
    Under "Ticket" set Korean Key to "FALSE"
    Click "Update"
    Click "Sign"
    Click "Save" in the lower left corner, save partition.bin
    Click on "TMD" at the top, check out the "System Version", this is the ios the game is using. You may need to patch this to something else, or install the ios.
    Exit

    Go back to KOR-wiiscrubber
    Right click on partition.bin, replace partition.bin with the one you just edited
    Partition turns bad
    Exit Kor-wiiscrubber

    Now, you may not have the ios required to run the Korean game. Use iospatcher to view the ios files, and change to another ios if necessary. You could change it to the ios the none KOR game uses, or change it to ios249 or any ios you wish.

    Load the game to usb via WBFS manager, it should copy just fine. (Have not tried to play yet)

    If you open the iso in wiiscrubber, it will now appear to use the common key, instead of the Korean Key.

    Edit- Just tested KOR-Zelda. Works Great. I do have Korean Ios on my wii, but you should be able to patch to another, or possibly block the ios reload in usbloader.

    mauifrog -

    Thanks very much for your efforst on this. I have been away and only just got back so I have not been able to post. In the meantime I got another solution from the OP on the WBFS site as follows:

    The program "Wiikey Changer 1.0" does the job that you want.
    You need two keys(Kor and common key) to use it.

    I attached the program.
    Use it to Kor ISO.
    Select A then F on the menu. It will work for most ISOs.

    This also works perfectly and I have been able to load the Korean ISO of Super Mario Wii (Galaxy) and it plays perfectly on my new black PAL wii.

    Now I have an issue with trying to get the Korean save file across but I will start another thread on that!

    Thanks again!
