    Hi everyone,
    Since 4.2 came out, so many people have been porting hacks to 4.2, but nobody had ported them to K region.

    So I did.

    2009-12-30: Updated! With 4.2 Region Free!
    Here's a hacks.ini for system menus 4.1 and 4.2 for all four regions.

    Thanks to phpgeek for making the 2 new hacks (Block Online Updates, Force Wifi Connection test Failure), and thanks to the authors of Startpatch 4.2.2x (BlackAce83, TiMeBoMb4u2, and zektor) for supplying me with them. And also thanks to crediar for making preloader to start with, and for cracking the 4.2 Region lock, and thanks to Daco and phpgeek for priiloader.

    Here's a description of what each hack does:

    Replace Health Screen with Backmenu
    Replaces the health screen with the "return to sysmenu" background animation.

    Auto-Press A at Health Screen
    Automatically presses the A button at the health screen for you.

    Block Disc Updates
    Does just that.

    Block Online Updates
    Does just that.

    No System Menu Background Music
    Get rid of the main background music.

    No System Menu sounds AT ALL
    gets rid of all of the system menu's sounds. The sound from the last banner you viewed will play instead.

    Move Disc Channel
    Allows you to move the disc channel just like an ordinary one.

    Remove NoCopy Save File Protection
    Allows you to copy (not move) the normally uncopiable save files, such as ones with wifi data.

    Recovery Mode (DISABLE below hack first)
    Makes the system menu boot into recovery mode. Also allows booting of regular game discs.

    Recovery Mode press Dpad-R on GC pad 4P
    Just like the above hack, but only when Dpad-R on GC pad in port 4 is held down on startup.

    Region Free EVERYTHING
    Does exactly that. This hack will regionfree EVERYTHING. Wii discs, GC discs, chanells & SD Menu channels. Even on 4.2.

    Disable HAXX,DVDX,RZDx deletion (4.2x only)
    Prevents the deletion of HAXX and DVDX titles, and stops the deletion of Twilight hack save games (not that you can copy them though...)

    Force Wifi Connection Test Failure
    Forces every wifi conection test to fail.

    Blackscreen at Wii System Menu startup!
    Causes the System Menu to blackscreen on startup. Good for locking the Wii! (of course you know how to "unlock" it by holding reset on startup, right?

    DUMMY HACK - SHOULD NOT BE SEEN
    For some reason, when it comes to using 4.2x hacks, the last hack in the hacks.ini will fail to enable, no matter what it is. It seems to be a bug in preloader. So, I've put a dummy hack at the end if the hacks.ini, so all of the real hacks work.

    Download: (Link has been updated!)
    http://www.mediafire.com/?5uhwjnemt4j

    Copy it to the root of your SD (non-SDHC) card, and make sure it is in the Wii the next time preloader starts up, in order to install it.

    Enjoy!

    Question: Does these hacks work with the system menu v450 or w/e

    Becuase all your other hacks inis said they weren't compatible with v450 or something

    If I overwrite the old hacks with a newer one do I need to just run preloader again or do I have to use nandclean to delete the old one first?

    Thanks da_letter_a i used your ports to put into a Korean version of StartPatch i left you credit on the loadup screen, Should be ready for download tomorrow.

    OffTopic, Anyone have any idea Why I can't hook to the Korean System menu using the Usb gecko, while i can easily hook Pal USA and JP?? had to use a hex editor to find the Original Values

    Yeah, when I first ported the 4.1K hacks, they just plainly didn't work. there must be something with the K System Menus.

    I have to use a hex editor too, as I don't even have a USB Gecko.

    And first post has ben updated with credits to phpgeek.
