    Hello am new, and am interested in making my PAL Wii region free. Mainly to play Super Paper Mario and any other Wii games which have no release date in the UK. What is the best chip for this? Also, I heard you had to update to the latest firmware for SPM to work. When I checked the update on the system it said there are no more updates available, does that mean I'm ok?

    Damn man, if only this board had like a "search" feature. Then you'd be able to 'search' for answers to these commonly asked questions? Or maybe it would be better if we could keep topics with these questins stuck or 'pinned' to the top of boards.

    Oh wait, you'd just rather not do a tiny degree of research.


    Is it okay to call these kinds of people idiots around here?

    Ya there are a lot of topics around here on this... the chips are pretty much the same - you're best bet is to grab a wiikey clone from Divneo.

    According to others... you should just make sure your Wii has 2.1E firmware on or later and the Wii won't try to install the update on the SPM disc.
