    I have a Wii FW 4.2E with a WODE, and have successfully followed the tutorial "Modify ANY Wii 4.3 & below".

    I enabled the free region hacks, but I have some problems with JP games :

    Some don't display any text, (F-Zero GX - JP)
    Some display the text in FR (the langage of my Wii), even if it is a Japanese game (Final Fantasy 4 the years after - JP)
    Some don't works at all ...

    I presume the problem is that my Wii menu is in French and not Japanese, also I presume that the Japanese font is not even installed.

    So, is there a way to install the Japanese langage on my Wii ? the best would be a package that will add the Japanese langage to the wii menu (currently there is 6 langage, but no japanese).

    is there a way to change the region of my wii to japan ? I don't care if my wii become 100% japanese [​IMG] (interested only in JP games / GC and WII)

    I have found this tool

    But I don't know if I can install it on a 4.2e console, also, there is risk of bricking my console, is this the solution I'm looking for ? do I need to install 4.2 JP firmware files ? how ? please help T.T

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    You may or may not have the jap language. Can you not set the language to jap in the wode loader? Or from cfg usbloader?
