    How to change Region on Wii shop Channel
    By G0dLiKe and edited by Sr_corsario.





    IMPORTANT WARNING! BE SURE TO READ ALL WHEN USING ANY REGION CHANGER AND DONT MAKE ANY MISTAKES OR
    YOUR WII CAN GET BRICKED.





    First you need Any Region Changer. You would need version 1.1b

    I changed my shop channel to JPN on a PAL Wii doing the following:

    1. Erase your shop account (Wii serial number is needed)
    Erasing your shop channel will delete all bought stuff so make sure you want to do this.
    This step is indispensable if you allready used the wii shop channel.

    1.1 Select the Wii Shop Channel from the Main Menu.

    1.2. Select Start.

    1.3. From the Wii Shop Channel menu, select Settings.

    1.4. Select Remove Wii Shop Channel Account.

    1.5. Select Remove to confirm the removal.


    2. Start AnyRegion Changer (ARC) and set the shop channel region to 1=JPN and mark the EULA as read

    - I suggest to set “Language Setting” to “English”, because if you are using “Spanish” the language on the wii will be japanese and probably you cant understand anything... :P

    3. Save settings and exit ARC

    4. Go back to Wii menu, start your shop channel and voila its in JPN shop!!



    Now you can buy/add Wii points easylly for your JPN shop channel!!

    At the end I used a visa card to buy points on wii shop channel as usual...

    Why go through all this? We have Wiiware/Channel dumps and WAD Manager to install them

    The all come out eventually, just seems like a lot of hassle for the sake of waiting a bit. Any particular releases that you are looking for?

    Not now thanks. I was interested on genuine NeoGeo games in order to investigate new options to inject some games... but it was prove to have AES encryption on them... :hateit:

    Still don't get why you are going to all this effort, when ALL releases get dumped. Aside from the cancelled ones that never reached the shop of course

    Nice posting. I am inerested in getting some Neo Geo games from the Japan wii sjop channel. Japan has 75 games, but USA only has 50 Neo Geo games. Anyhow, there are 25 games that Japan has, which is not available in USA (yet). I am not inerested in the injectable wads, but if anyone has the official wads from Japan, I'd like to get them. I made a comprehensive list, of what is available in Japan and what is available in USA, also made a list of what Neo Geo games that I know to be dumped.
